I love Christmas novels, but am not a huge fan of reading Amish romance novels. I have never been a big fan. I had the opportunity to read The Christmas Singing by Cindy Woodsmall. I selected the book, so It would get me in the holiday spirit.
The two main Characters are Mattie in Gideon who grew up as best friends and eventually got engaged to one another. One evening Mattie goes home to surprised Gideon, but is completely suprised herself and finds him with another woman so they end their engagment.
Mattie completely broken hearted moves to Ohio to live with her brother and his family. This leads her to opening up a baking store and she becomes very focused on creating a career out of her passion. However, her store catches on fire which forces her to think about moving back home. Returning home, means facing her fears from her past and seeing Gideon again. Will she be able to move forward? or Will it lead her to more heartbreak?
This book gets a 3/5 for me.. Not a big fan of the Amish story line..
