Heart of Christmas

Ginger & Brad’s House


While Ginger Murphy completes her music studies, childhood sweetheart and neighbor, Brad O’Sullivan betrays her with the new girl next door. Heartbroken, Ginger escapes as far away as she can go—to Australia—for five long years.

During this time, Brad’s shotgun marriage fails. Besides his little boy, Jamie, one other thing in his life has turned out sweet and successful—his pastry business.

When her mother’s diagnosed with heart failure, Ginger has no choice but to return to the green grass of Ireland. As a sought-after wedding flautist, she quickly establishes herself on home soil. Although she loves her profession, she fears she’ll never be more than the entertainment at these joyous occasions. And that she’s doomed to bump into the wedding cake chef she tries to avoid. Brad broke her heart once. She won’t give him a chance to do it again.

A gingerbread house contest at church to raise funds for the homeless has Ginger competing with Brad. Both are determined to win—Ginger the contest, Brad her heart. But when a dear old saint challenges that the Good Book says the first shall be last, and the last first, Ginger has to decide whether to back down from contending with Brad and embrace the true meaning of Christmas—peace on earth, good will to all men. Even the Irishman she’d love to hate.

“From beginning to end, I rooted for Ginger and Brad’s reconciliation and cheered them on from the get-go. I loved seeing how Christ mended and healed the brokenhearted, interwoven with a tale of love, sweet love. Ms. Ueckermann has a very sensitive heart and is a master at creating characters her readers truly care about. Ginger and Brad’s House is no exception. I will continue to search out many more books by one of my favorite authors.”

“I loved this story. It was a delight following Ginger and Brad through the ups and downs of their relationship to see if they could work past the hurts of the past and find their future together. This author certainly knows how to pull the reader into her stories, and she accomplished that with this story. This is a wonderful Christmas-themed romance that I definitely recommend.”
