My first pick, Operation White Christmas (An Escape to the Country Novella) by Nicki Edwards, is a romantic and sweet little read, and unlike some “Christmas” tales that are set near the holiday (but has little to do with the story itself), this book has Christmas spirit woven throughout.
After that kind of bad fortune, what else could go wrong?
Pretty much everything. Her bad luck continues when she arrives in Canada and things go from bad to worse. Rescue literally comes in the form of photographer and llama owner Jim – and their connection and chemistry is real. Jim has his own past history to work through, but ultimately, love at first sight is what you need to find in a novella, and Edwards delivers it in spades.
The story is fun, the characters likable, and you’ll be left wanting to know more of their story – in a good way! You’ll be ready for snow and the season with this tale!
This may well have been one of my favorites in the list and of the Christmas tales I’ve read so far. I don’t often read period pieces, so this was a delightful change from my norm.
