Low end of the pick scale. I think we‘re supposed to like Murphy, Kerry‘s brother, but he‘s mostly mean & grumpy for no reason. Kerry‘s a perfectly fine character. I liked MKA‘s last Christmas book, The Santa Suit, better. The narrator of this one has kind of a baby voice, which is irritating when the mc is a grown woman. #audiowalk

Photo of Callaway Resorts in Georgia - looks so inviting. Paired with the tagged book, which sounds so good!

This was a sweet read but I think this will mark the close of my holiday reading. I‘m quite possibly holiday‘d out. 🎄

Recently laid off and floundering Kerry fills in for her ailing father and travels with her brother to New York City to set up their family farms annual tree lot. Along side her “Karen” of a brother Murph she finds the place she truly feels at home. Hallmark movie on paper. Read it! ❤️🎄💚 #WinterGames #GangstaWrappers 2,290 word search points. #Adventathon #AtoZ #CandyLand #HolidayRomance #RushAThon #WinterCosy

A looming migraine is trying to offset my progress. Made this and forgot to post last night! #dailyphotochallenge, ornament challenge and #DecemberDreams, day 7: green font, Scrooge, an ornament good enough to eat…coffee isn‘t an “eat” but tends to be a lot of my meals so it‘s applicable 🤣 #RestingGrinchFace #wintergames

Another lovely heartwarming cozy Christmas read from MKA. I enjoyed the community of characters as well as the main characters' relationships, but I especially love the HEA.

Lizpixie Ruby would shred these in 30mins. We have to buy the industrial strength rubber ones for her. And those don‘t last long either!😂 3mo
Clwojick @Lizpixie Thankfully he‘s pretty gentle with his stuff! The only thing he loves to destroy is cardboard and paper. 🤣 He‘s had maybe 4 toys we‘ve had to throw out in the 15 months we‘ve had him. Since we can‘t resist buying him more, that also means he has a bench full of 75 or so toys. 🫣 3mo

I don‘t do Hallmark movies at all. But I do like a good lighthearted somewhat predictable (in the very best way) Christmas book. This one fit the bill!

First book done for #wintergames #teamevergreen @Clwojick I loved it, short and sweet quick easy read with lots of dialogue. And I loved the connection to her other Christmas book from last year.

I am not a huge romance fan. But I have always loved Mary Kay Andrews work. This one was no exception. Just a light hearted, fun Christmas romance that I couldn‘t put down.

Happy pub day and bookmail!
I‘ve been waiting on this one since seeing the Fab Four in Huntsville, AL.
For some reason I can't post the picture I took so will use a goodreads copy.

I have to go to New York City and sell Christmas trees with my brother?

As it turns out, things weren‘t as bad as she thought they would be. She met a lot of wonderful people and met dreamy Patrick.

Another fun one with lovable characters.

It may be a few months until Christmas, but don't miss this heartwarming gem.

You will love the characters and the story line.

Mary Kay Andrews never disappoints.

Be sure to add it to your reading list. 5/5
