Holiday Titles for your Reader

I would love a Kindle or Ipad, but our budget doesn't have the dollars to match the want.  Since I don't have an e-reader, I still read books, which I don't think is a bad thing.. There is something wonderful about holding a physical book. .The problem I am running into is, I simply do not have enough book shelf space for all of my books.. I am going to need to address this dilemma soon...

Anyways, I was provided the opportunity to read and review 4 Christmas novels by a publishing company named Summerside Press.

All of these books are fantastic in their own way.. So this blog post isn't forever long, I am going to try and make each snip-it short.

Sleigh Bells: 
Janice Hanna

Sleigh Belles: Belles and Whistles 

Sleigh Belles is a cute little romantic novel about Alanna Lessing who goes on a mission to help rescue her sister from the women's suffrage movement. Upon arriving in Montana, Alanna finds herself helping the neighbor rancher, Tanner Jacobs. Tanner Jacobs begins to develop feelings for Alanna and wants to be apart of her life. Will sparks fly or is this a disaster for love? 

My opinion: This book is cute book for those who like historical romance fiction. Although historical romance fiction isn't my favorite, I enjoyed this book.. It is a quick read and it's a good "fluff" read from life.. Sometimes you just need to transport yourself into someone elses world and this book will help you do that!

Baby It's Cold Outside:
Susan May Warren

Baby, It's Cold Outside 
Dottie, a local librarian has grieved the loss of her son in World War 2. When Christmas approaches, Dottie has no energy to open up her house or heart for Christmas. She is not excited for the season and is still dealing with her loss.. Her hometown Christmas tree usually has a star on it, but since the death of Dotties Son, Dottie cannot part with the star for the Christmas town tree. In the spirit of Christmas, 5 visitors show up as a result of a massive blizzard. Will one of these visitors convince her to put her sons star up on the town Christmas tree? Will any of these visitors change her life???
My opinion: I think this book would be a great movie. It reminded me of "Its a Wonderful Life" and how bad things all work together for good. I really enjoyed this book, it was a great read!!. Reading it made me feel very cozy, especially with all the description of the snow.. This would be a great read around the fire place.

Anita Higman
