Writers Shirlee McCoy and Michelle Griep have caught my attention this week. With Christmas only days away, I’d love to have their books in my stocking.

Christmas on the Run has me wanting to take a jog of my own into this cheerful little town on the cover. This suspense by Shirlee McCoy has great atmosphere.Christmas on the Run (Mission: Rescue) by [McCoy, Shirlee]Michelle Griep has all that is majestic in her cover art for Twelve Days at Bleakly Manor: Book 1 in Once Upon a Dickens Christmas. I love the castle house and craggy tree. It’s as if this book is wrapped up in a Victorian gift box.12 Days at Bleakly Manor: Book 1 in Once Upon a Dickens Christmas by [Griep, Michelle]Take your pick. Both books make Christmastime even more special as they help us remember what is important at Christmas: Christ. Are you up for a suspense or an historical romance tonight? Comment below.

Christmas! I love it. I know you do too. But with all the craziness of the season, there isn’t always time to get into a good book. But maybe this year you’ll get your shopping accomplished early and take a break with a cozy story.

Tamera Alexander‘s historical novella, Christmas at Carnton brings back all the warm fuzzy feelings of by-gone eras. I’d like to spend Christmas in this mansion!Christmas at Carnton: A Novella by [Alexander, Tamera]I love this adorable cover art for Linda West’s Christmas Kisses and Cookies. It reminds me of those wooden cut-out decorations that are so popular right now. This romantic comedy looks like a great read.Christmas Kisses and Cookies: A Fabulously Funny Feel Good Christmas Romantic Comedy (New Second Edition - Plus Secret Cookie Recipe!**** Book 1) by [West, Linda]

The cold breezes blowing keep me in mind of the happy season afoot.

AThe Shoemaker by [Prysock, Lisa]nd the great thing about this time of year is reading books about the season. I’d love to have one of those hand muffs myself from this cover art for The Shoemaker. Lisa M. Prysock firmly sets the mood with the backdrop village scene and the sweet face of the main character in this Regency story.

 

 

Just Maybe (Home In You Book 3) by [Walton, Crystal]How about this? I love the way these characters have great chemistry in Crystal Walton’s novel Just Maybe. I love a good romantic comedy.
