'A Merry Little Christmas' by Anita Higman


Franny Martin is a farm girl in Oklahoma preparing to spend the holidays alone yet again. One day a man by the name of Charlie Landau shows up looking all wealthy and polished and offers to buy Franny's Farm. Franny has no money to her name, but being clever and spirited, she is more than happy to sell her property and move to the city. As Sinatra wafts from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the peculiar and at times comical ways of country life. In the process they unearth some discoveries from deep within their hearts. Sometimes love comes when you are not ready for it. But will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams in reach?

This book is really cute. The cover is so beautiful and when you take the dust jacket off the title, it’s indented into the cover underneath. It’s an awesome design. I also love that the spine has sparkles - it makes it more festive. But the story is just as great. This book didn't disappoint at all! It was quite the exceptional novel. Anita Higman tends to write some really amazing Christmas stories. The characters are hilarious and very authentic, and I love their entertaining interactions. Even the dog in the story is pretty amusing as well. Everyone just comes to life within the story. There are some jaw dropping events in this novel, nothing too horrible, but they really make the story much more satisfying overall. I wish I could share with you exactly what happens because it was so fantastic, but you just have to read it for yourself!

It’s available now.
