I know it is still October, but the Christmas stories are making their way to the shelves. I reviewed a WWII Christmas novella collection in September, so I felt I need to do some more this month, since Christmas will be here before we know it, and the Christmas stories are showing up on the shelves.
You can also expect a few more Christmas stories to start popping up on my blog, as I have a few more planned. I love this time of year, so my reading needs to reflect that 🙂
Don’t forget to check out the bottom of this post to find out how you can win a copy of this wonderful Christmas novella.

The Fruitcake Challenge by Carrie Fancett Pagels
**I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review**
I found this novella to be a fun read. It is light-hearted and captures the hope of Christmas. The storyline is creative and there were a number of surprises in the story.
I love Michigan history, and this novella gave me a steady dose of it. It’s lumber camp setting is interesting and offers a variety of wonderful characters throughout its pages. This story is one that will cheer your heart and help you anticipate your own favorite parts of Christmas traditions, especially if you enjoy fruitcake.
I would love to hear from you! What Christmas things (food, traditions, etc.) do you look forward to?
