Nancy's Notes - November 10, 2016

"Marry Me at Christmas” by Susan Mallery, “The Baxter Family Christmas” by Karen Kingsbury, Christmas stories by Richard Paul Evans from BRIDGES, our site for e-books.

     It sounds early in the holiday season, but Christmas is only a few weeks away. We are starting to purchase a few books to get you in the holiday spirit.  If you enjoy the Hallmark Christmas movies you will enjoy any of following in my article this week. The first is Susan Mallery’s, “Marry Me at Christmas”. Bridal boutique owner Madeline Krug thinks organizing a Christmas wedding sounds like great fun, until she finds out she'll be working closely with the brother of the bride, movie star Jonny Blaze. How will a small-town girl like her keep from falling for the world's sexiest guy? Jonny came to Fool's Gold looking for normal, not for love. Happily-ever-after only happens in the movies. Still, nothing about this town is quite what he expected, and "ordinary" Madeline is the most extraordinary woman he's ever met.
        Karen Kingsbury is very popular with our inspirational readers. Her latest, “The Baxter Family Christmas”, begins two years after a terrible car accident that took the life of John Baxter’s daughter, Erin, her husband and three of their four daughters. Prompted by grief, and missing his daughter, John has invited a stranger for Christmas Eve dinner, Kendra Bryant, the transplant recipient who now has Erin’s heart. Ashley and her brother Luke don’t agree with their father’s idea. They want to protect their ten-year-old niece, Amy, the only surviving member of the accident. But John is determined and believes meeting this woman is something his deceased daughter would want.
        I am currently reading Christmas stories by Richard Paul Evans. The books  are from BRIDGES, our site for e-books. There are three of his Christmas books in this download. Last week I read ,”The Christmas List” and currently I am in the middle of, “Finding Noel”. The final title will be “Christmas Box Miracle ”. Any of these titles can be read in a couple of days which is nice when time is short.
