This winter curl up with these two books by prolific author, Anita Higman, and have those chilly days warmed by your reading. Anita is a best-selling and award-winning author with thirty-three books published. She is also a wonderfully warm and witty woman. I so enjoyed meeting Anita at the International Christian Retail show in 2012.
Winter in Full Bloom will capture your attention as its heroine, Lily, captures your heart. Lily, divorced from her cheating husband, has a fiery confrontation with the mother who she felt never loved her. Not able to bear the scorn, and learning the shocking fact that her mother had another daughter, Lily travels half-way around the world to Australia to find the sister in hopes of building a relationship. While in Melbourne, she is accosted by a man who just may have the key to her past. Against her better judgment, Lily becomes friendly with him and enlists his help.
Will she find her sister? Will the stranger stay in her life? Will he solve his own problems? Will her mother ever reconcile with her? Read Winter in Full Bloom for the answers – and to be enchanted by the story and the writing.
A Merry Little Christmas is a “cozy holiday read about two people from different worlds.” I’m so happy that Anita allowed me to review this book. I found myself smiling on every page as I got acquainted with Frannie Martin and Charlie Landau.
Frannie Martin prepares to spend her holidays alone – again – on her Oklahoma farm. Then Charlie Landau sweeps in with an offer to buy it from her although all he has is wealth and polish – absolutely no farming experience – and a need to prove himself as worthwhile to his father. With Christmas songs crooning from the radio, Frannie teaches Charlie about country life with all its fun and foibles. Will the holidays that are quickly advancing on them break them apart or give them their dearest Christmas desires?
You’ll want several copies of A Merry Little Christmas – one to keep and several to give as Christmas gifts. You’ll be so pleased you did and so will be the recipients!
I was given copies of these books for review purposes.
