Reader Reviews

Sweet yet not overly mushy story– I love this book!! I am a Christmas fanatic (like leave the tree up until March and only take it down then because it is in the way type of fanatic), but some Christmas stories are just way too mushy. This book is the perfect balance of romance and Christmas. It inspires me to buy land and start my own Christmas dream. Read this book! Love this book.

A wonderful and loveable story! – This was a fast and easy read and one you’ll devour in just a couple sittings if not one. D.W. Saur does an impressive job of teaching us that when we hit rock bottom, there really is no where else to go but up, but in order to turn our life around, we must put pride aside and work hard to achieve the desired goal. I loved this story about friendship, family, and family traditions. Growing up, my family had, and still has, their own Christmas traditions, so I could relate to the main character’s desire to grow a family Christmas tree farm into something truly magical. The only thing that would have made this read even better, is if I had read it during the Christmas season, but that just means I might have to plan another reread at the end of 2020 to fully appreciate the seasonal aspects of this wonderful and lovable story.

Wonderful story about family. – I love Christmas and a great story making this book the best of both worlds. The story is extremely relatable about loss, love and following your dreams. Pick up this book and fall into a wonderful world of Christmas.
