Christmas in July (ho!ho!ho!)





I love the Christmas season…the anticipation of children, the lights and decorations on the houses in our South Philly Streets…

I also love to read Christmas books, and I read them all year long…

Since July brings us halfway to the Holiday season, and my Mom insists that looking at snow on book covers brings some relief from summer heat, I’ve decided to feature some Christmas books for the next four weeks. Like me, you may find a new read for your “TBR List.” If you have any of your own favorites that you would like to share, please feel free to leave a comment.

Enjoy, and have a great week!



Perfect Strangers by Morgan K. Wyatt




Cinda isn’t ready to become a glorious butterfly.  She’s still in the caterpillar stage with her generous curves.  All she really wants is for a man to appreciate who she is.  The way Jack did when they met at the airport. They shared a romantic day as they both waited for their flights. He kissed her goodbye and tucked his card in her suit pocket with instructions to call. It figures she’d lose his card. Luck never dealt her a romantic winning hand, but it’s time to reshuffle the cards.

Six months fantasizing about Jack was enough. Raven determines not only to help her friend to become the butterfly she is, but also to give her friend a gift she’ll never forget.  Cinda voices her doubts about attending the masquerade ball. Raven reveals that Santa left her special gift at the ball. Her job is to retrieve it.
