A Holiday Miracle In Apple Blossom Blog Tour

Welcome to the blog tour for A Holiday Miracle In Apple Blossom by June McCrary Jacobs!

When her student, six-year-old Mary Noel, survives a car accident over Thanksgiving break, Amber and her new friend, Paul, are determined to cheer her up during the holidays. But Mary Noel’s most painful injury is the loss of her dog. The more withdrawn Mary Noel becomes, the more Amber and Paul need a miracle—a miracle that requires the entire community’s help.,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-57,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_.jpg

About the author:
June McCrary Jacobs spent twenty years as a primary grade educator after graduating from California State University, Hayward, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and multiple-subject teaching credential. Along with writing fiction, June is a freelance designer of sewing, quilting and crafting projects. ‘A Holiday Miracle in Apple Blossom‘ is June’s debut novel, though not her first published work. Since 2007 June’s original sewing, quilting and stitchery projects and articles have been published in national and international magazines including Stitch, Sew News, Sewing World, Simply Handmade, Sew Hip, Sewing Savvy, Crafts ‘n Things andCreate and Decorate. Two of June’s sewing designs for children appear in the ‘Little One-Yard Wonders‘ book published by Storey Publishing, released in June, 2014. A Californian since age six, June currently resides in the San Joaquin Valley. Learn more about June’s writing endeavors and view some of her original sewing projects by visiting her website at

Find more about the author at her website and ‘Writing and Sewing’ blog.  She writes about books, book reviews, textile shows, museum exhibits, and sewing tips there with a new post each Wednesday. The first Wednesday of each month (and sometimes additional times throughout the month) she posts free patterns and instructions for one of my original-design sewing or crafting projects for readers’ use and enjoyment.

Amber is pretty fresh to Apple Blossom, but she absolute loves teaching. However, right before Christmas, her student Mary Noel is involved in a tragic accident. Now Amber wants to try and do everything she can to make it better. With the help of a new-found friend, Amber may be able to help her pupil, her pupil's family, and even help herself in the process.
This is a relatively short but fun read. Amber is a young teacher who would do anything for her class, and this love of her students is soon put to the test. Amber's young pupil Mary Noel is involved in a sad accident, and Amber just knows she must do something. While visiting Mary Noel, Amber meets a friend of the family, the dashing and sweet Paul. Amber and Paul are a great match in multiple ways. They grow closer as they work to serve Mary Noel and her family.
If you are looking for a sweet romance that will raise your spirits for the holidays, this is a great choice. If I had one little complaint, it would be that Amber and Paul were a little too perfect. I mean they practically had no flaws. However, if you're escaping from the business of the holidays, you may want a story with very little to bring you down. This story just lifts up. It is a fun and quick read for your holiday season.
