A Merry Little Christmas~ Review & Giveaway


I was in the mountains of Colorado last week as I was reading this book with snow on the ground. What did I think about this book? Well let me count the ways.

 First of all~ Christmas and romance just cast a magical spell over me. I could not help but fall in love with Franny from the first page. She is all alone and struggling after her parents death to keep her little farm up and running. Yet ~ she feels like she is missing out on her God-given desire to follow her dream of music. Charlie just happens to come along just at the right time to give her an opportunity to leave all the milking~ chores and nitty gritty dirt and grime behind. 

But did Charlie have to be so dog- gone adorable?

What I really loved about this book is that I found out I was reading a very modern version of  " Charles Dickens~ The Scrooge" without even knowing it until the end of the book. Anita Higman captured my heart from the very first line~ I loved this book!

I rate this book a 5 + ~ everyone on your Christmas list needs a copy of this book.

I was provided this book in exchange for my honest review. 







About A Merry Little Christmas: 
Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds.

Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who's preparing to spend the holidays alone...again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny's farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she's more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city.

As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart-that sometimes love comes when you're least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?

Hi Carrie, I always love your reviews and could learn how to write reviews from you; I always struggle when writing them for Amazon or CBD-just what to say and how much info to give. I hope I win one of these-sounds like the perfect Christmas story.
Hugs, Noreen
