New giveaway! Enter for a chance to win Love Finds You at Home for Christmas by Analisa Daughtey and Gwen Ford Faulkenberry (with review)

About the book:

Love finds a home in two heartwarming stories of Christmas past and present. "Recipe for a Perfect Christmas." Both Ruby and Cliff have returned home to their small Arkansas town after serving in World War II. As snow blankets the town and Christmas draws near, will their wounded hearts find healing and love?

"Small-Town Christmas" Sophia never expected to return to her hometown, but she's converting her grandparents' Victorian mansion into a cafe. Then her childhood friend Jon walks into her cafe and back into her life. As Christmas descends upon the Ozark hills, Jon woos Sophie with a tender love that makes her feel like she's come home.

My review:

This book has two stories inside. I read the first one and enjoyed it mainly because it's in a historical setting, and those tend to be my favorite novels. I may or may not read the second because it's contemporary romance, which is not my preferred genre. I skimmed it a bit and it didn't grab my interest. So probably not.

The story by Annalisa was heartwarming and sweet. It included a nice bit of history from the WWII era that included jobs to help the war effort. I didn't care for the heroine much because stubborn women in novels tend to annoy me. The hero was sweet, though, and the scene where he shared his heart was touching. The healing theme of the book was also nice and it had a solid spiritual thread running through the plot.

I'm not one for mushy Christmas stories, but this one was nice. Plus, it's a gorgeous book, so even if you decided not to read either story, you could still give it as a Christmas gift. If you like a novel that encourages you to sit by the first and sip cocoa as you read, this is the perfect novel for that. If it had been longer I probably would have liked it more, but overall, it was a good read.

LFY at Home for Christmas was published by Summerside and released in October 2012.

To enter for a chance to win this book simply post a comment telling me what genre you enjoy reading most... Contemporary, or historical fiction. I'll select a winner next Sunday using a randomizer program called "the Hat" which draws a random name for me. Have a great week!

I like to read contemporary Christian fiction the most, but I am not particularly picky. :) My mom loves historical fiction so we trade around a lot.

Judy said...

Good question. I like both, as long as they feel reasonably plausible. But I'd probably choose a well-researched historical over contemporary. sheiladeeth at gmail dot com
