3 Christmas Books I'm reading. #Giveaway

Posted by Susan B James on 3:00:00 AM with 3 comments
I have yet to write an adult Christmas Book. But during the Christmas season, they are my favorite kind of read.

Last year I bought It Must Be Christmas because it had a story by Jennifer Crusie in it. I adore Jennifer Crusie. And I loved Hot Toy. The other two stories are by Donna Alward and mandy Baxter.

This year I bought myself Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe by Jenny Hale. I read the preview on Amazon and it sounded fun.
Every year I read Jude Deveraux and Judith McNaught's Simple Gifts 4 Short Stories. I cherish my copy.
I misspoke. I can't leave it at three.
For mystery lovers: Have you read Charlotte MacLeod's Rest You Merry? Click this link, move past the annoying ad and check the preview. If you don't like the first page, read no more. This is the first book in her Peter Shandy series. https://www.amazon.com/Rest-You-Merry-Professor-Mysteries-ebook/dp/B009S33M0A
Also probably available, but checked out at your local library.

Since I mentioned a mystery I felt it only fair to mention a Science Fiction. When I clicked on a B&N List

10 Holiday-Themed Science Fiction & Fantasy Novels

 The Sugar Queen came up.
That's wrong. The Sugar Queen is magic realism. But then I think my book, Irish Magic is Magic Realism and it comes up as a fantasy romance on Amazon. In any case, I adore The Sugar Queen and I highly recommend it. I'm not the only one. 47,771 ratings  ·  5,453 reviews

The Sugar Queen

 3.98  ·   Rating details ·  47,771 ratings  ·  5,453 reviews
Twenty-seven-year-old Josey is sure of three things: winter in her North Carolina hometown is her favorite season; she's a sorry excuse for a Southern belle; and sweets are best eaten in the privacy of her hidden closet. For while Josey has settled into an uneventful life in her mother's house, her one consolation is the stockpile of sugary treats and paperback romances  she escapes to each night ...Until she finds her closet harboring none other than local waitress Della Lee Baker, a tough-talking, tender-hearted woman who is one part nemesis - and two parts fairy godmother  . . .
I never thought of it as a Christmas Book. But I'm adding it to my Christmas re-reading list.
That's it. I want to give one of you a Christmas book. Enter and if you win, you can choose from any of the books above. Or a Kindle Christmas book of your choice.
Happy reading.

  1. I don't really have a favorite. Part of the problem is with my MS, little bits of memory goes.However, It Must be Christmas with Jennifer Crusie in looks real good. I read Christmas any time of the year.
