Each year I stuff myself with books to read that use Christmas as a setting. I love this. It is my favorite thing to do over the holidays. Me, book, fireplace, cookies...
This year I had the opportunity to read several, starting in October. Here are my choices for Favorite Christmas Reads:
Christmas Under a Cranberry Sky by Holly Martin
Piper Chesterfield has a job as being a mystery guest at luxury hotels. She goes around the world writing up reviews for a magazine. She decides to do one last review before going on a sabbatical for a few months. Little does she know that this might be her last hotel to review, ever. Did I leave you with a sense of doom? I shouldn't, the book is a lovely Christmas romance set in a remote winter land. Beautiful book. Buyer beware, this book has some steamy scenes in it, unusual for a Christmas romance.
Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe by Debbie Johnson
This story is full of fun characters, friends and belly jiggling humor. It has some moments that only sisters understand, how impossible it is to love and hate in the same moment. Laura and Becca are two sisters, opposite in personalities but united in that they are there for each other when needed. When Becca's husband unexpectedly passes away, Laura makes a complete change in her life to support her sister when she decides to move away. Beautiful story of how one's life can take a turn for the better in a twist of fate.
The Christmas Bride by Christian Michael
All I Want For Christmas by Jenny Hale
These are a just a few of the Christmas books I read this year, but ones that I enjoyed and that were relatively inexpensive. If you like reading Christmas romance, these will certainly fit the bill.
