Holiday Reads

We’re almost halfway through December and looking forward to the holiday break where we can curl up with a mug of hot cocoa and one of these Christmas books:

THE CHRISTMAS TOWN by Donna VanLiere
When twenty-year-old Lauren Gabriel witnesses a hit-and-run accident, she suddenly finds herself being pulled into the town of Grandon. Could this town and its people be the home she has always longed for? “With eight other yuletide novels under her belt, VanLiere is an expert at tugging heartstrings, and this sincere tearjerker delivers.” — Library Journal

CHRISTMAS IN PARIS by Anita Hughes
“After a bride calls off her Christmas wedding days before the ceremony, she comforts herself by taking the planned honeymoon in Paris, then finds herself navigating romance with the help of a fortuneteller and the jilted groom in the suite next door. Hughes bring her signature combination of haute couture and high-society romance to Paris, adding a touch of magic and allowing us to live vicariously through Isabel as she falls in love in the most glamorous city in the world…. A charming modern-day fairy-tale romance.” — Kirkus Reviews

THE GIFT OF A LIFETIME by Melissa Hill
Beth Harper has a passion for movies and shoes, so when she receives an anonymous gift leading her on a movie trivia scavenger hunt across NYC, she wonders if it’s a surprise from her boyfriend, Danny, or from her attractive co-worker, Ryan. “Readers will get in the holiday spirit as Hill’s sentimental story brings them to various New York landmarks and beloved scenes from famous movies. A big twist near the end will come as a major surprise, deepening the tale’s poignancy.” — Library Journal

CHRISTMAS JOY by Nancy Naigle
Joy Holbrook is all work and no play, but she’s forced to take a leave of absence from her job to take care of her Aunt Ruby back in Crystal Falls. When she’s forced to work with Aunt Ruby’s neighbor, Ben Andrews, to win the annual Christmas Home Tour, Joy finds her career-focused heart dreaming of a family. “This is a sweet, Hallmark-movie-style story of a woman figuring out what she really wants with the help of a hunk, a stray kid, and enough decorations for several Pinterest boards. Steer fans of inspirational fiction toward this one as well.” — Booklist

A SHOE ADDICT’S CHRISTMAS by Beth Harbison
From the author of the beloved bestseller SHOE ADDICTS ANONYMOUS comes the story of a woman who finds herself locked in a department store on Christmas Eve and must spend the entire night facing several “ghosts” of Christmases past, present, and future…all while surrounded by Manolo Blahniks, Jimmy Choos, Chanel slippers, and Prada riding boots. “A fun and shoe-filled modern take on A Christmas Carol from the best-selling Harbison for all readers.” — Library Journal readmoreremove
