Noelle Joy stopped celebrating Christmas ten years ago, when Trevor Holden skipped out on their long-planned Christmas Eve wedding. He destroyed her trust in men, crushed her belief in God, and left her cynical about love. Gone is the bright, cheery spirit of the girl she thinks of now as “the first Noelle.” Stronger and savvier, the new Noelle would never be found waiting at the altar for a groom who didn’t show.
When a famous-but-mysterious architect commissions her to decorate his mansion for a holiday event, Noelle finally returns to her hometown. Even as she finds an unexpected peace in facing ghosts from the past, her fiercely private client disturbs her. Michael Holliday is kind and considerate, but far too handsome…and hauntingly familiar.
Holliday didn’t choose Noelle to make his home a Christmas wonderland by accident. She’s the only one who can do the job he has in mind—and once she’s in his mansion, he never wants to let her go. But he’s hiding a secret that could destroy any chance of a relationship with the beautiful decorator.
A false persona. A shattering secret. Can love break down these insurmountable walls?

As with all of Delia Latham's novels, you will be entertained, touched, and never disappointed with The First Noelle. The well developed and multi-faceted characters come alive and the story draws you into its emotional, sometimes playful, compelling situations. Delia Latham is a gifted storyteller with descriptive writing that allows you to both see and feel her characters and what is happening to them and around them. First Noelle is a tender story that could easily become a Christmas classic. This is Christian romance at its very best. First Noelle: A Second-Chance Christmas Romance (Christmas Holiday Extravaganza) would make a great holiday movie. My one complaint about Delia Latham's books is that they are tremendously difficult to put down. I am a fan!
I loved the small-town description of Hope Springs that read so familiar to me. I pictured it easily. I guessed Michael’s identity right away and anticipated the thawing of Noelle’s heart. I’m never disappointed in a Delia Latham story.
Delia wrote a truly suspenseful, captivating story with a twist.
Noelle, for ten years has been an cold, hard woman after being left without a groom on her wedding day. No one knows what happened to her groom, Trevor, he just disappeared. She went on to become a well respected and sought after interior designer In San Francisco.
Michael Holliday is a well known reclusive architect who to resides close to her home town, a place she’s avoided for a decade, and has requested Noelle for a job. It’s an opportunity she can’t pass up to flesh out her resume.
In His Grip,
