Christmas Joy
Premiered on Hallmark's Countdown to Christmas on November 3rd, 2019.
Watch for it during Christmas in July this summer.

A heartwarming Christmas story about family, friendship and finding love in unexpected places by Nancy Naigle from St. Martin's Press.


Joy Holbrook might be all work and no play, but that changes when her Aunt Ruby takes a fall that lands her in a rehabilitation center before the holidays. Joy takes a leave of absence from her job as a market researcher to run the family farm, even though the timing may hinder her chance at garnering the promotion of her dreams. 


Ruby seems overly concerned about Joy being able to handle Molly. Under the impression she’s referring Molly the bunny that is one of the menagerie of animals, Joy’s not worried at all until the next morning when a little girl named Molly shows up. For the sake of her aunt, Joy is forced to partner with Ben while Ruby is on the mend to help with preparation for the Christmas tour and, in the process finds her career-focused heart dreaming of a family.

Ben Andrews isn’t your average accountant. He also happens to be the handiest man in Crystal Falls. He’s helped his elderly neighbor, Ruby Johnson, decorate for the annual Christmas Home Tour—and win—the last several years. He’s not about to let some drop-in niece break their winning streak. 

Will the magic of Christmas help her to open her heart and find her everlasting joy?

This is a sweet, Hallmark-movie-style story of a woman figuring out what she really wants with the help of a hunk, a stray kid, and enough decorations for several Pinterest boards. Steer fans of inspirational fiction toward this one as well.— Susan Maguire
