In the paperback release of A STOCKINGFUL OF JOY, Hannah Howell presents a rare treat, with two delightful tales that combine the adventures of fiery Irish cousins as they discover love and happiness on their journey to Paradise, Montana.

When Deidre Kenneys father is mortally wounded in his work as a detective, Deidre and her cousin Maura promise to deliver important documents to the Callahans in Montana.

Deidre takes the long route to Paradise, encounters thieves, and is rescued by Tyrone Callahan. Together, they learn the value of true love and trust as they risk all and brave the dangers of the journey in A Christmas in Paradise.

Maura Kenney takes the railway route to Montana and is set upon by hired thugs. Mitchel Callahan comes to her rescue, and is soon determined to win the stubborn beautys heart. Beset by danger along the way, Maura and Mitchel prevail as love overcomes all obstacles at the close of Ms. Howells second tale, Mauras Christmas Secret, in this warm-hearted holiday duet.
