Christmas reading suggestions

Looking for something light/fun/seasonal to read over the Christmas break? Maybe one of these will appeal?

“For the Love of Christmas” by Kate Forster

Rating: ****

Genre: Fiction –  Chick Lit, Seasonal fiction

I love Christmas stories, and this Novella is a gem. A family must pull together emotionally after the loss of a baby boy, in order to rekindle their love for each other & the Christmas season.

“The 12 Slays of Christmas” by Abby L. Vandiver et al

Rating: ***1/2 

Genre:  Fiction –  Cosy Mystery/Christmas

I’m a bit of a fan of a Christmas story fan (particularly of mystery/thriller style story) so “The 12 Slays of Christmas” appealed to me as a great holiday reading prospect. I liked the variety of styles (all cosy to a greater or lesser extent), and over all the collection is pretty good. Some of the stories are cracking reads, some good, and others are just okay. Worth a look as its very Christmassy and not a huge financial outlay.

“A Chance this Christmas” by Joanne Rock

Rating: ***1/2 

Genre:  Fiction –  Romance/Christmas

Rachael must return to her home town, the 365 days a year Christmas Village of Yuletide, for a friend’s wedding. Knowing that she must confront her past, she is surprised to discover that she still has feelings for her old crush, Gavin. I must admit that I’m not usually a reader of romance novels and can’t make any judgement on how this book compares to others in the genre. I do, however, love a Christmas story, and am a big fan of the holiday read. I really enjoyed this book. It’s light, fun, and a little silly, but it’s a great holiday read. Enjoy it for what it is.
