Sing along now: It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...after reading Christmas in Winter Hill!

It's hard to get in the Christmas Spirit when you live in hot, sunny Phoenix, Arizona, but after reading Christmas in Winter Hill by Melody Carlson, I feel ready to bust out the Christmas tunes and drink peppermint tea while watching the snow fall in a snow globe!

Mrs. Carlson did an excellent job penning a Christmas tale that has the exact right mixture of realism AND a good healthy dose of Christmas optimism!

This short novel packs a lot of action into a brief number of pages and doesn't get hung up on the past, the psychology of the heart, or meander too long down Sob-Story Lane. While it is obvious that the life of the main character Krista Galloway hasn't always been picture-perfect, and has in fact housed a lot of hurt, the focus is on the healing, growth, and future of her hurting heart. The romance is clean and fun, the action is believable and continuous, and the villain is present without being scary.

I would recommend this book to anyone 12 and up who loves a good, happy, warm and fuzzy, Christmas tale! It's not a long and involved read, so it would be perfect for a cold evening, or a warm patio swing.

Any time is the right time for a little Christmas spirit!

Editor's Note: Our podcast reviewed another Christmas story by Melody Carlson titled A Christmas by the Sea in Episode 22.
