Editorial Reviews

D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review:

Dianna Houx succeeds in creating a holiday story that is classic Hallmark in its positivity, problem-solving experiences, and emotionally connective characters, from Grace's initial mandate to return Christmas to holiday hearts to capturing "the vibe of a big, happy family" that is intrinsic to creating a quality of life, especially in one's later years.


"Countdown to Christmas" by Dianna Houx is an amazing romance book that expertly blends elements of romance, family, and friendship in a beautifully written story.

 Deborah Stone,

Dianna Houx presents a quintessential Christmas story with all the twists and turns needed to keep you intrigued. 

Emily Quinn, A Quintillion Words:

Oh my goodness, how can only one chapter of a book instantly fill me with hope, love, joy, warmth and the magic of Christmas?! Not only that, but it just felt like a really cosy Christmas book from the very first few pages – I knew I’d love it. Read the whole review at Quintillion Words here
