Every holiday I try to read at least one Debbie Macomber holiday themed romance and this year I chose to listen to Dashing Through the Snow: A Christmas Novel narrated by Allyson Ryan. At just under 5 hours, Macomber delivered an interesting read where two strangers share a ride from San Francisco to Seattle. Toss in a case of mistaken identity, a puppy and an overzealous FBI agent and things get downright interesting.
Today I am sharing two holiday reads that will curl your toes and pull at your heartstrings. A Bad Boy for Christmas by Jessica Lemmon, an author I get enough of and Unwrapped by Katie Lane. This was my first read by Katie but it will not be my last. Go grab some hot cocoa and settle in for my reviews. You are going to want to snuggle up with these titles.
These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly shares the coming of age story of a young 19th century girl who struggles with the restrictions of her status as she embarks on a risky journey to find the answers to her father’s death. The tale that unfolds is a suspenseful thriller with a forbidden romance. Beautiful written and narrated by Kim Bubbs I slipped right into this engaging tale.
Merry Mary by Ashley Farley is a heart-warming, pull at your heartstrings novella and perfect for the holiday season. Farley beautifully captured the story of Scottie Darden, a motherless woman who on a cold winter morning makes a discovery that changes her life in an instant. Things could go terribly wrong and the author takes us through the events that unfold making us connect.
I enjoy the urban fantasy series the Sentinels of New Orléans by Suzanne Johnson and was excited by the prospect of short, standalone tales from this world. Pirateship Down is a great introduction to this urban fantasy and the perfect fix for fans anxiously awaiting the release of Pirate’s Alley.
