A Christmas Banquet~Noelle’s Golden Christmas

Christmas Banquet

To celebrate Thanksgiving weekend and the official start of the Christmas season, we are offering up a second helping of Christmas reads today. My mom, Onisha  had the pleasure to read Noelle”s Golden Christmas by author Tamie Dearen and she says it is a winner!

26 Reading Days until Christmas!

So, Tamie, the question I always want answered, what was your inspiration to write a Christmas novel?

I love Christmas! I love the decorations, having family around, giving gifts, and eating all the Christmas goodies. Most of all I love celebrating our Lord’s birth. So when I decided to write my first Christmas novel, I knew it would have to be a Christian book. I simply couldn’t leave Jesus out of Christmas, even in a romantic comedy. However, not everyone who loves Christ enjoys Christmas. I was inspired to write about a girl who feels the opposite of me–a girl who hates the Christmas holidays even though she’s a believer. But perhaps this Christmas, Noelle will change her mind.

The Blurb

Noelle's Golden Christmas-03-kindle-recommended-sizeChristmas has only brought heartache for Noelle, year after year. Since her tragic breakup two years ago, Noelle fears God may want her to remain single forever. Until she finds the love of her life… a Golden Retriever named Abby. 

The sudden attention of two men from her father’s company is both enticing and confusing. But who can compete with the unconditional devotion of a dog? 

Reeling from yet another tragic loss during the holiday season, Noelle determines the best way to deal with the painful reminder. Run! 

In the spirit of Hallmark movies, this sweet Christian romantic comedy tells the story of a believer, struggling to implement her faith in her everyday walk and battling fear to find the agape love that drives it away.

To celebrate being a part of our Christmas Banquet, Tamie is offering Noelle’s Golden Christmas on Amazon  for just 99 cents. Be sure to check the price before purchasing as this is a limited time offer.


About  Tamie Dearen

Author SquareTamie lives with her very romantic husband of thirty-three years. They have two grown daughters (the inspiration for the daughters in The Best Girls Series) and one grandson, a twelve-year-old boy, recently adopted from Ukraine. Tamie loves to play, sing, and write music. She started writing books in 2013 and published her first book in October of that year. Now she’s published a total of seven novels and a novella. She’s also written a free serial romance on her weekly blog, A Rose in Bloom, which she plans to publish as a novel. And in her spare time, she’s a dentist. (But she’s painless.)

Tamie met her husband as a freshman in college when she acted out of character on a whim. One night in the library lobby, she spied a cute guy with his first name written on the back of his shirt. She called out his name. When he approached to talk to her, she pretended that she’d met him before, asking about his classes and how he liked college. To her surprise and delight, he also pretended that he knew her, but of course he didn’t know her name. They continued this false relationship for two months. Each time they saw each other, an event which occurred three times per week at the cafeteria, he would pretend he knew her. Meanwhile, all of Tamie’s friends were careful not to reveal her name to him. When he finally admitted his ignorance of her name, he was astonished to learn the truth. And the rest is history.

I am honored to share a song that Tamie wrote both the lyrics and music for. Click the title of the song to listen.

I Might Have Missed the Savior

If I had been a shepherd

In the fields that night,

Would I have heard the angels singing,

Filling up the sky?

Or would I have been busy counting sheep

And singing my own song?


I might have missed the Savior,

And I might have never known.


If I had been a wise man

Would I have missed the star?

Would I have seen the light of David

Shining from afar?

Or would I have been busy reading words

About the King to come?


I might have missed the Savior,

And I might have never known.


I want to see the Holy Child at Christmas;

Bring my myrrh and frankincense and gold.

Sometimes my busy world

Just might hide the Lord.


I might have missed the Savior,

And I might have never known.


If I had been a Christian

In the world today,

Would I have seen each hungry person;

Every needy face?

Or would I have been busy wrapping gifts

And singing Christmas songs?


I might have missed the Savior,

And I might have never known.
