Being pregnant, I seriously can’t wait to stuff my face with mashed potatoes, turkey, gravy, corn, and stuffing! Anyone else excited to eat or is it just me?
I just love this time of year. Family and friends getting together to celebrate what they are thankful for. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Then comes the shopping. Anyone else adventure out to shop for the great deals or do you order from your couch? I personally love going out shopping with my husband and my friends. We always make it a great time!
This week has been crazy busy with my Uncle Al’s funeral and then I was just emotionally and physically exhausted. So… not much reading was done. However, I am bringing you two Holiday books your way for today and I hope you enjoy them.
Season of Wonder by RaeAnne Thayne
This book was hot last holiday season for many readers in the book community. I bought this book but I never had a chance to read it. So this is now on my TBR list for this Christmas season plus the cover is beautiful!
He’s giving her children a season of wonder…
Dani Capelli seized a chance to start over in a small town with her daughters. Now, facing her first Christmas in Haven Point, she wonders if leaving New York was a mistake. Dani loves working alongside veterinarian Dr. Morales, but her two children aren’t adjusting to small-town life. And then there’s Dr. Morales’s son, Ruben—Dani’s next-door neighbor. Gorgeous, muscled and dependable, the deputy sheriff is everything she secretly craves and can’t bear to risk loving…and losing.
Ruben never pictured himself falling for a big-city woman like Dani. But beneath her prickly facade, she’s caring and softhearted and she needs all the love and protection he can give. When Dani’s teenage daughter starts acting out, Ruben draws on family traditions to show the girls just how magical a Haven Point Christmas can be. But can he convince Dani that she’s found a home for the holidays—and forever—in his arms?
The Christmas Town by Donna VanLiere
This book has become part of my Christmas decor because of that red truck! However, I always wanted to visit a Christmas town just like the ones in the Hallmark movies. Anyone else? Enjoy!
Lauren Gabriel spent many years of her childhood in foster homes, wishing her mother would come back for her and be the family she needs. Now twenty-years-old, she still longs for a place that she can truly call home. Her work as a cashier is unfulfilling, and at Christmas it’s unbearable with the songs and carols and chatter of Christmas that she hears throughout the day.
When Lauren ends her shift one night, she finds herself driving aimlessly in order to avoid returning to her lonely apartment. And when she witnesses a car accident she is suddenly pulled into the small town of Grandon, first as a witness but then as a volunteer for the annual fundraiser for Glory’s Place, a center for single mothers and families who need assistance. Could this town and its people be the home she has always longed for?
Now it is time to start cooking for Thanksgiving. I am in charge of homemade mashed potatoes and my husband Eric is in charge of green bean casserole! We are spending this Thanksgiving with his family and then it is time to SHOP!
Have a good Thanksgiving and remember.. be kind!
