November 2014: Winter, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve

Winter Wonderland by Belinda Jones
is a fun winter story that perfectly interweaves a highly entertaining plot
 with interesting descriptions of Quebec and its sparkling Winter Carnival - it made me feel like being there myself and experiencing it all through my own eyes.

Just for Christmas by Scarlett Bailey
is a beautifully written, absolutely lovely novel that also touches on deeper issues. For anybody looking for a Christmassy feel good story with psychological depth. 

Comfort & Joy by Kristin Hannah
is a magical modern day fairy-tale about the true spirit of Christmas and the meaning of being a family, with some unexpected twists.

One Minute to Midnight by Amy Silver
While the pretty book cover suggests that this novel falls into the light entertainment category, it is anything but. It is a highly emotional, tragic, and suspenseful drama that deals with complex human relationships. To me it's one of the most deeply moving books I've ever read, and it's one of my all-time favorites for sure.
