More Christmas Blurbs

Barbara Vey -- November 14th, 2012

After seeing my first snowfall of this season, I know it’s time for more Christmas books.  Come December, I pile up all my Christmas books, sit by my tree, light an evergreen candle and drink Bailey’s Irish Cream in my coffee while diving into one book after the other.  It helps put me in the spirit of the season with my happily ever afters.  Please feel free to post any Christmas books we haven’t covered yet to let the readers know what else is out there.

A Magical Christmas by Heather Graham

Read by Joan

Jon and Julie Radcliff, with their three children, Christie and Jordan (teenagers) and young six year old daughter, Ashley, have been at odds due to their hectic lives, and are even considering divorce. Wanting to give the children one last traditional Christmas together, they spend Christmas at Oak River Plantation outside Washington, DC, where their unusual hosts greet them wearing authentic period costumes. What we know and the Radcliff’s don’t is that on a Christmas Eve during the civil war there was a terrible tragedy that separated the owners and their family.

‘Tis the season for reading heart warming books, and this book (originally released in 1996) provides a story within a story. What I liked about this book is it reminds you that many of the things we fuss and fret over daily are not as important as the people we love. We should not get caught up in the hustle and bustle and not have time to appreciate what we have the the ones we love. I know I got sappy, but the civil war period intrigues me, and the book reminds me of how Christmas should be. I believed when I was little and I still believe in Christmas magic.

Lady Louisa’s Christmas Knight by Grace Burrowes

Read by Kym

Lady Louisa is charming, with a dazzling intelligence that would frighten all but the most stouthearted suitor. Sir Joseph is a kind, generous war hero whose only confidants are his horse, Sonnet, and sow, Lady Ophelia. Both Louisa and Joseph have secrets, which they are convinced make them unsuitable for marriage. But it’s Christmas, and at Christmas, the most magic of all magical things can happen — true love.

In my opinion, this book could be titled “The Perfect Christmas Regency Romance.” It’s that good. Burrowes’s love story is tender, her characters endearing, and the resolution/ending satisfying. Truly, you couldn’t ask for more in a holiday romance. If you like Christmas regency romances, and only have time for one this year, make it Lady Louisa’s Christmas Knight.

My Kind of Christmas by Robyn Carr
Read by Heidi

Angie LeCroix arrives in Virgin River to escape her very controlling mother while she finds her own voice after a tragic car accident. Angie has healed and is looking for clarity while finding peace before the holidays. In walks Patrick Riordan to her uncle’s bar. Handsome, quiet, tough, yet something about him tells Angie that he is hurting inside. Patrick wants to avoid Angie… she is too young, too pretty, too special. Both of them want to avoid people during the holidays, but they are drawn to each other.

I loved Angie’s passion to find herself and what she was meant to do. Her car accident changed everything she planned or what her mother planned, and it was exciting to read about where she wanted to go. The love story between her and Patrick is so sweet and loving. It makes you feel cozy for the holidays.

Bottom Line:  I almost forgot, I can’t have my Baileys and coffee without the whipped cream, it’s also part of my holiday tradition.
