Carol of the Bells, 12 Days, and Missing

Thanks to Stephanie Black and her commenters over at Six LDS Writers and a Frog who helped me find this wonderful acapella group.

And they're funny, too!


Today, I am feeling a little sleep deprived, and it partly Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen's fault. She wrote this book called Missing. It's a mystery about this young woman who is performing on tour with her college choir and spots a child who was kidnapped from her home town. Ronda is an amazing writer. I stayed up way too late reading Missing. I know I should have just used a bookmark and put it down, but I got so involved with the story and the characters. I just had to know what happened. I was reading late at night because I made the mistake of telling my teenage daughter how good the book was before I had a chance to finish reading it. She started reading it after school, while I was still working, and I had to wait until I could get her to stop reading and go to bed before I could get it back again. She couldn't put it down either without some parental intervention.

If you want to read a sample of Missing, go to Ronda's website. Once you read the sample chapters and you're hooked, you can buy a copy at


Remember to post comments to be entered in the drawing on December 26th. One of the prizes will be an autographed copy of Missing by Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen. You can have one entry for each post you comment on.

See you tomorrow!


  1. Marta,
    I'm so glad you and your daughter liked MISSING. Thanks for the shout! And thanks for sharing this fun musical advent calendar. It's a lot of fun. (BTW, you don't need to enter me in the contest. I have a copy--grin.)

  2. I'm so glad you are doing your advent calendar again. I really look forward to it.
