My Review

So Christmas in July- feeling the muggy hot weather outside I confess I am at least ready for fall. lol So what did I like about this book? First, the backdrop. I love Gatlinburg, TN and have been many times because I am a TN girl myself! The backdrop was perfect for the feeling of a cozy Christmas. Also, I enjoyed that our author ventured out in her characters to give us a Christian singer that's very famous- I would have never though of that. We have romance and we have a suspenseful twist as well, not terrifying but gives the book some dimension. Also, we find Biblical truth within which I thought was well done. With that in mind, I have to say I didn't feel too much character development happened, and the book seemed a little simplistic overall in plot. It was a nice short Christmas story for the Christian fiction reader looking for a sweet romance, Christmas theme, or a cozy type mystery.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own.

More from Carol

This book started off in an anthology and now is its own ebook. Christmas and romance go well together, and so I set forth to create a book that could meet that challenge. When I started thinking about writing this, it made me want to use one of my favorite locations as the main setting for this book. When you read it, I hope you will feel like you had a mini-trip to that area. (It’s beautiful there!) I also wanted to include writing about things that I’m very involved in or know a great deal about. Music is one of those things. I hope you enjoy Starla and Mason’s story and the things that God brought about in their lives in this book.
