Book Review & Author Contest~A Merry Little Christmas

Book Description: "Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds.

Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who’s preparing to spend the holidays alone…again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny’s farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she’s more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city.

As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart—that sometimes love comes when you’re least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?"

My Thoughts: A Merry Little Christmas  by Anita Higman is a sweet, enjoyable story.  It's not an edge of your seat, can't put it down type of book, but just right for when you want an interesting, warm story.  That doesn't mean there aren't serious issues addressed in the book- racism in the 1960s is part of the story.  I enjoyed reading about farm life, and about two people from completely different types of lives coming together for a common goal, and discovering their feelings for each other. 

Best-selling and award-winning author, Anita Higman, has over thirty books published (several coauthored) for adults and children. She’s been a Barnes & Noble “Author of the Month” for Houston and has a BA degree, combining speech communication, psychology, and art. Anita loves good movies, exotic teas, and brunch with her friends.
