"The Christmas Singing" Review

I recently read "The Christmas Singing" by Cindy Woodsmall. The book is an Amish romance novel about Mattie, a cake-maker who had her heart broken by Gideon three years earlier. She had built a new life in Ohio when her cake shop burned down and she returns home - but that puts her back in contact with Gideon, and she realizes that the reason she always thought he broke up with her may not be the truth.

I really liked this book. It was just a light, fun book, and the length was perfect for a quick read. Nothing too horrible happened, and it was a sweet story. The characters were likable. This book didn't go as much into Amish customs as many Amish books I've read, and the story could have been written about non-Amish people too, but I thought the Amish setting added alot of charm, as it always seems to. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for something light and happy, and I enjoyed it very much.

Note: I was given access to this book by Waterbrook Multnomah publishing group in exchange for this review. This is my honest opinion.

Speaking of Christmas-type books, what are some of your favorites? I'd love to hear!

"The Christmas Box" is one I like. And often I read "A Christmas Carol." I love the children's book "The Greatest Christmas Pageant Ever." But I am ready for something new. I will have to check out "The Christmas Singing." I'm eager to read what other people suggest! There's something so nostalgic about reading Christmas books!

I love reading! But I do not love Christmas books... too much cheese for me. The WORST Christmas book I've read was The Christmas Sweater by Glen Beck. It was horrible. So, I don't know which was my favorite... just my worst. LOL. Bah Humbug.
