Series:   Bonita Creek #3 
Author: June McCrary Jacobs 
Publisher: Independently Published 
Release Date: December, 2022 
Genre: Christian Historical Romance with Military Elements

After seeing more than two years of combat in the Korean War, will the homecoming of two men from Bonita Creek be filled with the joy and romance they are yearning for or will it bring them even more heartache?

It's late summer, 1952, in friendly Bonita Creek, a small town in the Coastal Mountains of the Mendocino Coast of California . . . 

Estelle Vincent is missing her older brother, Sam, and her fiancΓ©, John Chaplin, who are far away fighting for the US Army in the Korean War. They've been gone for more than two long years, and she is feeling out of sorts. 

When she has a frank discussion with her mother, Estelle realizes that she is not the only one who has been moody and bored with her uneventful life. Her mother's words inspire Estelle and catapult her into action organizing a community holiday project for the children and teens whose parents work for Mountainside Ranch outside of town. 

As the story deepens, Estelle learns that several people close to her are harboring secrets—including her mother, her brother, and her best friend. She learns to be flexible and understanding as she looks outside of her own life and examines the impact of unforeseen events on those closest to her heart. 

Join this intelligent, strong-willed hometown young woman as she navigates the obstacles and challenges of life with hope, perseverance, faith, courage, and love on her road to a brighter future filled with dreams come true. 

'Christmas in Bonita Creek,' Book Three in the Bonita Creek Series, is a historical Christian holiday military romance story which is completely clean in language and content.
 

EXCERPT FROM 'CHRISTMAS IN BONITA CREEK':

Estelle was so preoccupied with thoughts of ideas for their project that she nearly forgot to stop by the mailbox on her way up the driveway. She parked her bike and held her breath as she opened the mailbox flap. She swept her hand through the opening until she finally touched gold—a thick envelope that was stuffed into the dark corner of the back of the box.

She closed her eyes and prayed it was from Sam or John. "Sam or John, Sam or John. Please let it be from my brother or my fiancΓ©," she spoke quietly. When she was holding the envelope in front of her she opened her eyes. "It's from Sam. Yay!"

Her joy quickly faded as she noticed the handwriting on the envelope was not the familiar slanted lettering of her brother's left-handed scrawl. She knew sometimes when soldiers were critically wounded or killed in combat that someone else would mail their personal effects home, including letters the soldier may have dictated for loved ones to receive upon their death.

Her wariness grew when she noticed the envelope was addressed to 'Miss Estelle Vincent.' Usually when Sam wrote to the family he addressed it to 'The Vincent Family' or 'The George Vincent Family.' Estelle hoped there wasn't bad news inside that she would be expected to share with her parents. To avoid any unnecessary drama this evening, she would wait to open the letter until she was alone.

Estelle tucked the envelope into her dress pocket and parked her bike in the garage before walking into the kitchen for a snack. She headed down the hall to her mother's sewing room to greet her and find out how she was doing.

"Hello, Mother."

Her mother looked up from her sewing with a puzzled look on her face. "Estelle, why are you home so early? Are you feeling ill?"

"I worked my shift until 4:30, and then met with Gloria at the library for over half an hour. It's close to 5:30 now."

Rosalie Vincent gasped. "I must have lost track of time working on these pleats for the new skirt I'm making for you. I guess I got lost in my thoughts and prayers about Sam and John."
