In The Stack December 2016

‘Tis the season for reading Christmas stories, especially those quick, but oh-so-enjoyable novellas. To me they’re like lapping up a Hallmark Christmas movie marathon. But, you know, you don’t need to put them away with the Christmas decorations. They’re great for reading all year long, like The Yuletide Angel. (Yes, a strongly-worded hint and blatant self-promotion! 🙂 )
So here are a few I’ve enjoyed this year (in no particular order):
One Enchanted Christmas by Melissa Tagg – Contemporary Christian Romance — a laugh-out-loud read, especially great for the young adult. Heavy on the fun, light on the faith element.
Kissing Santa Nic by Tori Kayson – Contemporary Romance, also a lighthearted and fun read. Clean and romantic story between a firefighter and a cop. No faith element.
A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs – Historical Romance set in 1894 Scotland – This one is from 2012, but such a beautiful story of forgiveness.
The Christmas Bride Wore Boots by Terri Weldon – Contemporary Romance by one of my Seriously Write teammates. This is next on my to-read list and I’m looking forward to it.
Others set in the Christmas/Winter season:
Classified Christmas Mission by Lynette Eason (See my review here.)
Fatal Frost by Nancy Mehl (See my review here.)
Counter Point by Marji Laine (See my review here.)
Trapped by Irene Hannon
What was on your reading list this Christmas?
Awww! Thanks, Sandy! So glad you enjoyed Kissing Santa Nic. 🙂
I read One Enchanted Christmas and enjoyed it as well, but that’s the only book I’ve read this Christmas. Terrible, I know. I’m excited about The Christmas Bride Wore Boots, but it’ll have to wait until after the holidays. Too busy painting and cleaning our new place right now.
And you’re so right. The Yuletide Angel is a wonderful read for any season. Hugs and Merry Christmas to you too! xo
Thanks! Yes, Kissing Santa Nic was a fun romance, and I loved the twist you gave “Santa Nic.” I wasn’t expecting it. Don’t work too hard! 🙂
