One Christmas in Winter

Winter, Montana #1

by Bell Renshaw

36696505. sy475

About the Book

They say one Christmas in Winter, Montana is all it takes to fall in love. Reba Farwell wasn’t planning on being there that long.

I don’t know why, but this year I really need Christmas.

I’m not even a Christmas fan, to be honest. Don’t get me wrong. I love celebrating Jesus, and I love being with my family, but the whole commercialization of the holiday makes it so ugly to me. BUT this year, I’m just aching for the holiday. So, today I am showcasing another Christmas read. This one is a sweet novella I’m thoroughly enjoying. It’s like the best Hallmark Christmas movie ever.

Check back soon for my thoughts on the book!

Son of the Father

by Andrew Stone

46649566. sy475

About the Book

Of course, there were days I regretted killing my father, things had not gone great since then.

Talk about a compelling first line!

Son of the Father is a novel about Barabbas. The Barabbas the Jews set free so that Jesus could be killed in his place. I’ve never read a novel about Barabbas before, so when I saw the book I knew I just had to read it. I know we can never really know this side of heaven what it must have been like for Barabbas on that fateful day he was set free from death, but it is a fascinating topic to ponder.

I am very excited to dive into this story. Check back soon for my full review!

Christmas in Winter Hill

by Melody Carlson

43838305

About the Book

Krista Galloway didn’t usually second-guess herself, but as she slowed down the U-Haul truck on the outskirts of Winter Hill, she was assaulted with some serious doubts.

I’ve been there! I’ve been walking tall and sure, then, out of nowhere, doubt falls on me like a gazillion pounds of bricks. It’s no fun! I’m not sure why Krista is second-guessing herself, but I can totally appreciate the feelings.

I’ve heard such awesome things about this sweet little story. I am super excited to get to read it!

A Christmas Haven

An Amish Christmas Romance

by Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall

About the Book

Ivy placed the last of the pink-rose centerpieces on a crisp white tablecloth and paused to smell the fragrance of the soft petals.

I am a big fan of Cindy Woodsmall novels, and I especially love the ones she co-writes with her daughter-in-law, Erin. They are superb stories. So far, I am about half-way through the novella and I am enjoying it greatly.

This sweet novella releases on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. Check back for my full review plus your opportunity to win a copy of this story.

Sweet Melody

About the Book

It was worse than she thought.

First, that cover! Isn’t it adorable?! I 100% admit that I checked out the synopsis of this book just because the cover is so stinkin cute. But then I read the back cover and knew I had to buy this book. It sounds so good! And then there’s that first line. Doesn’t it just scream, “Read Me!”? Oh, I am so excited to read this one!

Check back soon for my review. 😊❤️📚

I hope you have an excellent weekend filled with plenty of quality reading time.
