Book Blog Tour -- A Merry Little Christmas by Anita Higman (Review and Giveaway)

About A Merry Little Christmas: 

"Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds.
Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who's preparing to spend the holidays alone...again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny's farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she's more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city.

As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart-that sometimes love comes when you're least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?"

My Thoughts:

One of my favorite things about the holidays is reading books that center around Christmas.  So, when I heard about Anita Higman's new book, A Merry Little Christmas, I couldn't wait to read it.  Also, I have not had a chance to read any of her other books, but have read some wonderful reviews, which made me eager to see what I have been missing.

I was surprised at how quick of a read this book was.  I found myself not wanting to put the book down, and finished it in under two hours.  The author did an amazing job in creating the main characters, and made the reader feel like they could relate to them, or that you could see yourself friends with Franny.  Even though I have read other books about finding love when you aren't looking for it, or finding your love from the opposite sides of the tracks, Anita Higman's book really pulled me in and left me wanting to read more.  When you think the book is going in one direction, she pulls you in another.  And, the characters start off with a set dream, but in the end realize that as times change, so do their dreams.  Will Franny and Charlie live out their dream and live happily ever after? You will have to pick up a copy of this book to find out. :-)

I will definitely be picking up more books from Anita Higman, to read during the upcoming winter months here in New England.  Nothing like ready a good book to warm your soul. :-)
