This is one of my favorite times of the year, because the new Christmas Fiction books are starting to come in. They are usually inspiring, feel-good stories that leave you with that warm fuzzy feeling. If you need help getting in the Christmas mood, they will do it. They are also great books to read before you go to sleep. They will lull you into peaceful, sweet dreams. If you are having a bad day, just pick-up one of Debbie Macomber’s “Angels” books with Shirley, Goodness & Mercy in it. These Angels are always getting in trouble for some of the shenanigans they pull.
There are many popular authors with Christmas series. Karen Kingsbury has the Red Glove series, Donna VanLiere, author of “The Christmas Shoes” has several books. If you want to read a series based on certain Towns, Thomas Kinkade has a series on a town called “Cape Light” and Susan Mallory has one on a town called “Fools Gold”. If you like to read about beach towns, Sherryl Woods has a series called “Chesapeake Shores” and Susan Wiggs has a series called “Lakeshore Chronicles”. If you like to read about cowboys, Janet Dailey has a Christmas series on them and Linda Lael Miller has a Christmas series on her “McKettricks”. Richard Paul Evans has “The Christmas Box” collection along with several other Christmas books. Melody Carlson and Mary Higgins Clark also have quite a few Christmas books. There are also Christmas books with an Amish storyline. If you need something with a little suspense, Heather Graham will give you some of the “edge of your seat” feel you crave.
Hallmark Channel has made a few books into movies. Debbie Macomber’s “Mrs. Miracle” came out a few years ago and this year, Debbie Macomber’s “Mr. Miracle” and Sheila Roberts “The Nine Lives of Christmas” will come out. So watch to see when these will be airing.
There are many more authors that I have not listed that have Christmas books. Just come in and check some out, even if you don’t need any help getting in the Christmas mood. They are fun, quick, easy reads for this hectic time of year.
I hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season,
