The fourth book of Robert Humphrey’s holiday series sheds even more light on the lives of Jamie and Tessie and their growing relationship with a mysterious dog. Another Christmas brings them the opportunity to learn that life is filled with difficult lessons and unexpected events that can test their faith beyond anything they have yet experienced. With the help of a mysterious dog, they learn that the magic of Christmas is more than imaginary and commonplace happenings can be miraculous.

Community Bank and Trust had been on the same street corner as long as Henry could remember.  He had been there countless times as a child with his parents, had opened his first savings account there as a teen, and currently did all his banking with a lot of the same folks who had watched him grow into an integral part of the community.  It was the only bank in several counties that had never been robbed….until today.

Heartwarming Series
Being familiar with Humphrey's series of Christmas stories, I have learned to watch for new releases each year. I thought The Christmas Wish was going to be the last of Jamie and Tessie but I was surprised to find a fourth book out this year just in time for shopping for the grandkids. Humphrey never fails to grab the reader's attention in the first paragraph and his stories always stretch the emotions from one extreme to the other, a fact I deem attributable to his experience working in the social system of our society. The thing I appreciate most about his writings are the life lessons that are so delicately woven into even the harshest of circumstances. In The Christmas Promise we are taken directly into the action of everyday life where the mundane can quickly become a frightening and life-threatening event. A bank robbery at Christmas time seems an unlikely place to begin, but by the time you get a few pages into the story, you again see the impact the actions of a few have on the lives of many. Humphrey suprasses, without glossing over, the typical social injustices our society all too often attribute to the downfall of average people and shows the reader the subtlety of how everyday goodness overcomes even the direst of situations. This story, like all of the Poodle series, is replete with love, family, kindness and all the other blessings that come with the Christmas season. I heartily recommend this book for not only the seasonal magic, but also for the realities of everyday life. Although the appearances of Maximus, the Christmas Poodle, are brief, they continue to be a powerful ingredient to the story line, even to the point the grandkids have been known to break into an audible cheer at the mention of the Poodle's name. As with the rest of the series, this story is good for all ages but may require some additional explanations for the very young. Great work! - Marjorie K., Reviewer
