Christmas Roses

GIVEAWAY

CABOT, AMANDA
CHRISTMAS ROSES

Celia Anderson doesn't have a husband on her Christmas wish list. But when a traveling carpenter finds lodging at her boardinghouse, she admits that she might remarry if she found the right man--the kind of man who would bring her roses for Christmas. It would take a miracle, though, to find roses during a harsh Wyoming winter.

But Christmas, after all, is the time for miracles . . .

My Review:

What a beautiful Christmas novella. The story is tight, but it doesn't lack in plot or characterization or emotional impact. This has the feel of a great Hallmark movie in the making! I loved the simplicity of the story with all its complex undertones. And Christmas Roses boasts one of the most romantic endings I've ever read. Sweet, heartwarming and romantic -- the perfect cozy Christmas read.
