A Merry Little Christmas

I love reading a good holiday story around the holidays. Kinda like watching a good movie.
I was sent A Merry Little Christmas by Anita Higman to read. ┬áIt’s set in the 60’s, which I love that time period. I thought it was a great read and would recommend it as a holiday love story.
Franny Martin is a real life farm gal who loves to spend her time on the farm with the pigs and chickens. Well, she’d rather be off in the city and working at a radio station, but for now the farm is her home.
Then, Charlie shows up and offers to buy her farm. What she didn’t know is that she would fall for Charlie. Charlie wants to prove to his wealthy father that he can run a business and succeed. Charlie didn’t come looking for love, but he may have found it in Franny.
Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds.
Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who’s preparing to spend the holidays alone…again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny’s farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she’s more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city.
As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart-that sometimes love comes when you’re least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?

I received the above book to review. Opinions are my own.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
