Happy Friday, bookish friends! I hope I don’t make any enemies with this post but I’m starting to make Thanksgiving & Christmas celebration plans!
Now before you come to the conclusion that I’m one of the crazy people who run to the stores as soon as the Christmas paraphernalia hits the shelves, let me assure you I am not.
Actually, I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to the fluff and fuss of holiday celebrations but this year we have the rare opportunity to host my sisters’ families for an evening meal in just a few weeks.
So, that’s why I am extra excited to share this Christmas novella collection featuring four sisters with y’all! I’ve included the first line from each novella bellow.
Sleigh Bells Ring
All I Want for Christmas by Sandra D. Bricker
Joanna had intended to sleep in past seven, especially now that she had the option—an unusual occurance for a Thursday morning except for her recent state of unemployment
Her Old Kentucky Home by Lynette Sowell
Bella Tucker had forgotten the scent of her sister Jo-Jo’s favorite perfume, but that all came rushing back as soon as she found herself in a rib-crushing hug.
Please Come Home for Christmas by Lenora Worth
Sophie Tucker loosened her white-knucked grip on the steering wheel of her 1999 white Ranger pickup as she gradually slowed to pull into the ice- and snow-covered driveway.
I’ll Be Home for Christmas by Barbara J. Scott
“Order up!” Amy Tucker Brosseau folded the wrinkled piece of paper and put it back in the pocket of the old sweater she usually wore while working the early morning shift at the Garden District Dish Café.
