A Blessed Blue Christmas by LoRee Peery


A Blessed Blue Christmas

Dahlia Delisi has poured her life into her store, The Blue Dahlia.  Once her faith was strong, and her life was on a different course.  But when Sloan Letheby left town, Dahlia drifted away from God.
Sloan Letheby has been transformed. His brush with death brought new meaning to his faith in God, and he needs to right old wrongs.  However, there's a murder plot in the way of his reunion with Dahlia.  Can he find a killer before it's too late?  And can Dahlia accept him...and God, back into her life?






LoRee Peery writes Christian romance, where characters learn through spiritual struggles how to come to terms with the Lord’s will.

LoRee has written for many years. She tried to quit more than once, seriously in the middle of 2009. Then after several months the words, the voices, started resonating in her head. She found herself jotting notes in the middle of the night, trailing toothpaste across the floor on her way to pen and paper, or noticing character and conversation while out and about.

She is drawn to reunion stories because the past often needs to be dealt with before we can move on in life. MOSELLE’S INSURANCE is the first in a series centered around Frivolities, a crafty, kooky shop in a small fictitious Nebraska town. The creative owners have fun as they deal with life issues and they take spiritual issues seriously. The timing of God bringing love into their lives takes each one by surprise, since their initial focus is on their main street business.

LoRee attempts to see God’s presence every day. Often that gift comes from nature, and she is most relaxed in the outdoors. The call of a cardinal draws her to look for the distinctive flash of crimson. A meadowlark’s melody always transports her to the farm where she grew up. A rainbow holds special significance, since one appeared the day of her father’s funeral and means the promise of the Lord’s presence in her life.

Nature is great, but the people God creates are the miracles. What could be better than a grandchild’s smile and a young voice greeting, “Grandma!” Well, maybe the
hug that follows.


Readers, thanks for visiting Lagniappe!

I pray that you find "a little something extra" in each of your days.

Thanks, Marian, for the spotlight. I've been hit by a nasty virus... but still smiled when I saw Perry instead of Peery.
