    Divine Christmas is the fifth book in Hope Callaghan’s Divine Cozy Mystery Series. This heartwarming series is full of inspiration, hope, and second chances.

The plot and sub-plots quickly turned this book into a page-turner. I recommend this book/series to anyone who enjoys reading well-crafted cozy mysteries. Joanna “Jo” Pepperdine opened Second Chances, a haven for women who have recently been released from Central State Women’s Penitentiary, in Divine, Kansas. The women are down on their luck, with nowhere to go, and Jo provides them with a second chance in life. Delta Childress, a talented cook and second in command, shares her cooking and baking knowledge with the residents. Nash Greyson is a skilled handyman who keeps Second Chances in good repair and teaches the women how to build and repair things. Gary Stein, Jo’s gardener, tends two gardens and instructs the women on successful gardening. Jo knows the holidays will be difficult for the women in her care and is determined to make this a fun and memorable Christmas for each of them. Jo and the Second Chance staff and residents, other than Tara Cloyne, are looking forward to decorating their Christmas tree, making and hanging their Christmas stockings, and other holiday activities. Tara, the newest resident, is missing her young daughter and just can’t bring herself to join the festivities. Miles Parker, Jo’s half-brother, is still in town, demanding what he claims is his share of Jo’s inheritance, and wants to make Divine his permanent residence. When Pastor Sawyer Murphy tells local business owners that gifts intended for local children had been stolen, Jo decides they would host a Christmas party for children in need, and Nash and Gary pitch in to make the event a success. The body of Harrison Cantwell, an angry, bitter, and ruthless man who owns a large portion of the town, is found behind the old theater. Not only is Jo a prime suspect in Harrison’s murder, but she finds herself needing to do some soul searching and make a difficult decision as well. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Someone stole all the toys, and he needs the help of the town's business owners to contribute once again so the children will not be disappointed! Most everyone agrees to donate except one of the wealthiest and most unpopular residents. He picks arguments with all the attendees and unfortunately is found dead the next day. Everyone is suspect and of course Jo is number one on the list. There is also an escapee from the women's prison, that is targeting the farm because of a rumor of lots of money being on the premises.I Hope can keep your attention in this mystery at Christmas time. I would highly recommend this book, #5 in this series or any of her other series!! Always looking forward to her next read.

    Robbery, murder, mayhem and magic with unexpected twists. God has a way of turning the worst of situations into the best. Who knows the reasons why? Will Jo Pepperdine solve the mystery of the missing toys for the church toy drive? Book 5 Divine Christmas is set in the town of Divine, Kansas - the Midpoint of the continuous 48 states. Hope Callaghan's writing style has me hooked: relatable holiday descriptions with a Midwest setting, small town characters and stereotypes, and unique stores.

As a cozy mystery, the story is never too preachy with just the right blend of spiritual elements. As an avid reader, I enjoy how Hope Callaghan summarizes what happened previously, and then throws the reader a new idea or red herring. Divine Christmas is a page turning story with relatable characters, small town setting, and a believable resolution. Recipe included.

    Merry Christmas! God bless us every one!! Hope has mastered Christmas with the telling of this story. We read about forgiveness, compassion, tough love and more. Yet most intriguing to me is the reappearance of the large men caught on camera and seen in the field. I don't think I would mess around with Jo Pepperdine! She's got guardian angels watching over her!!!! This is a wonderful story just as all of Hope Callaghan books. Once you start reading, she draws you in right through to the very end!

    Absolutely Divine It's the Christmas Season and Jo Pepperdine is planning to give her residents of her halfway house a wonderful holiday to ease their pain of. Being away from loved ones. Well, were it not for one old lodger that would make Ebenezer Scrooge look like an elf, a runaway that misses her child so much, and an escapee from the prison No just might be able to pull it off. These books just keep getting better and better.

    This is another hit by Hope Callaghan. I have read all of her books in all of her series. Divine Christmas finds Jo and the residents at Second Chance farm celebrating Christmas but murder and theft has them side tracked to find out what's going on. As always, Hope writes a Christian story of mystery, hope, love and are there possibly spiritual beings surrounding the farm? I highly recommend this book, as well as all of Hope's other books and series.

    I just thought this was such a good book. From the beginning to the end it just kept your interest. It is a cozy but the setting was so different than any cozy I had read before. It is in the cozy town of Divine and I fell in love with Jo. She had a way about her that I wish many more people would. Hope banged the ball out over the wall with this cozy with many mysteries.

    Christmas mystery solved Interesting story. Girl leaves a prison farm because she feels out of place. She leaves to help her former cell mate escape. A murder is committed. Appears that a newcomer to town did the crime but accomplishes of escaped convict did the job. A lot of clues led to the true killer.

    Wonderful cozy mystery Jo has a few problems to face, a possible lawsuit from the most hated man in Divine, an escaped prisoner and who took the Christmas presents that were donated to the church for impoverished children? I do like these books. They have a warm feel good factor. I hope there will be more books.

    A Very Merry Christmas! If you enjoy good old fashion Christmas decorating, hot chocolate by the fireside with a murder and mystery thrown in on the side...then this is definitely the book you've been waiting for! I enjoyed every page!!

    Awesome book I do love this series of books. But this one was special because it centered around Christmas. It also has a runaway. That was different and sad. It's a great book.

    Whilst I enjoyed this book, as I have others in the series, I felt it ended a bit abruptly and don't think it completely solved the mystery. (Unless I missed something!). Will read others in series sometime though.

    Divine Christmas I love this series! This book has everyone helping to make a wonderful Christmas for needy children. Unfortunately there is a murder. You won’t find out who did it until the very end. What a surprise!

    Great story that ended too soon! I enjoyed this addition to the Divine series! Too soon, the great story of Jo's adventure and mystery-solving ended. Here's hoping the next part of the series is soon released!

    A truly great Christmas story. This is truly great Christmas story. A story of trials and mistakes. Also a story of forgiveness restoration, and some humour.

    I love this series! Five stars to another absorbing book in the Divine series. For being just a small town in the middle of the country, Divine seems to have more than its share of homicides. Of course, Jo and her friends find themselves in the middle of the investigation. The murder victim this time is the guy everyone loves to hate--an all around, miserable grinch! Jo's half-brother Miles is even a suspect. It takes everyone working together to crack this case.
