On Thursday, I ordered fourteen Christmas books for the library's OverDrive account. We already have the physical books on order for the library. But, I only order the OverDrive titles the week before they come out in eBook or audio. All fourteen of these titles will be released on Tuesday, September 29. If you're one of those people who snatch up Christmas books, get ready. And, if you think it's too early, skip this post and come back later. But, those of you who get your books at the library, or read or listen to them from OverDrive might be interested. (And, it's a trial run for me. I can see if Blogger is going to work for my upcoming Treasures post, or if it will leave me frustrated and angry.)
Even if you're not a fan of Christmas books, you have to admit Janet Dailey's Holding Out for Christmas has an adorable cover. A rancher in Branding Iron, Texas yearns for the sultry singer he saw on stage at the previous year's Cowboy's Christmas Ball. But, the kindergarten teacher who returns home for the holidays has dreams of a big career in Nashville. And, no little holiday romance will get in the way.
Robbie's back in South Lick, Indiana for Christmas at her popular country store and cafe in the latest in Maddie Day's Country Store Mystery series, Candy Slain Murder. It may be a bumpy road for the holidays. First, a man shows up at Pans 'N Pancakes, claiming he's the long-lost half-brother of Robbie's assistant. Then, a fire destroys a home, exposing skeletal remains in the attic. All Robbie wants for Christmas is to stop her winter wonderland from becoming a nightmare.
