Just in time for the holidays-a Partonville Christmas story that all Dearest Dorothy fans will have on their wish list

Through four Dearest Dorothy novels, Charlene Ann Baumbich has beguiled a growing legion of readers with the humorous and endearing denizens of Partonville, Illinois. Her latest heartwarming addition opens with everyone pitching in to help a local family rocked by tragedy. Meanwhile, Katie Durbin worries that her ambitious plan to revitalize Partonville's shopping district will crumble under the bullheaded doubts of a few townies-unless a Christmas miracle (and a few of Dearest Dorothy's prayers) can help her to win those stubborn folks over.

About the Author:

Charlene Ann Baumbich is the author of the previous three books in the Partonville series. A popular speaker, journalist, and author, for several years she has lectured to women’s groups and retreats. Baumbich is also an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Today’s Christian Woman, and numerous other publications. She is the author of six nonfiction books of humor and inspiration.

From Publishers Weekly:

Partonville, the beloved "circle-the-square town in the northern part of southern Illinois," is back in book five of Baumbich's enjoyable series. As Christmas approaches, Katie Durbin's plans to create a minimall in the town square are threatened by some mutinous citizens, and 88-year-old Dorothy Jean Wetstra will need all of her shrewd diplomacy and powerful prayers to "The Big Guy" to win them all over. Meanwhile, the town is in a dither because of the untimely accidental death of one of its leading residents. This installment features a sweet 60-something romance, a promising subplot about Dorothy's attorney son Jacob,and the usual dose of good humor and funny happenings. Despite some recurring technical problems with abrupt shifts in point of view, Baumbich's writing shows that she knows—and still loves—smalltown people. (Nov.)
