The Question:
What is your favorite book set around Christmastime?

My Answer:
My favorite Christmas book is Cowboy Christmas a novella collection by Catherine Palmer, Lisa Harris, and Linda Goodnight. I've read it several times and I'm just about to read it again!

Gisela huddled by the fire in her attic chamber, clutching the miniature portrait that fit in her hand. The artist had painted it the year before, when Gisela was seven. Father had been so handsome.

My Thoughts
A well-written beginning! Since this is a Cinderella retelling it doesn't raise any questions that you don't know the answers to, but it is still a great start to what is turning out to be an amazing book!

There is a free download of A Christmas Carol on my blog if you want to stop by courtesy of Atria Books.

Happy Hopping!!

This sounds like the perfect book to put me in the Christmas spirit! The opening definitely makes me want to know more about the character.
