Each year, just after Thanksgiving, I start a Christmas novel. I started doing this many years ago and now I look forward to treating myself to one or more holiday novels.

For most of the years I have been reading Christmas novels, I start with a holiday mystery by British author, Anne Perry. These delightful yuletide stories are short and I always hate to turn the last page!

Anne Perry’s thirteenth holiday mystery transports the reader to the Mediterranean island of Stromboli for an unconventional yuletide adventure.  I just finished this little Christmas read and now I am starting to read another Christmas mystery, this one by Victoria Thompson.  This Christmas mystery is set in nineteenth-century New York City…MURDER ON ST. NICHOLAS AVENUE. Christmas is in the air and a wealthy new bride is accused of an unspeakable crime!

A friend from London recently recommended British author, Trisha Ashley, for a number of fun holiday stories, most set in villages in Lancashire. I have ordered a couple of her books and will soon learn how she compares to my other favorite holiday writers!

Maybe these will have to wait until Christmas 2016!

Christmas novels are one of my favorite holiday traditions and I savor these novels for relaxing, while the Christmas rush goes on around me!  Just steal a bit of the holiday rush …curl up in front of the fire with a cup of tea and the delicious smell of evergreen!

    Kathy, I read your recommendation last year. Was it A Christmas Hope? I am going to see if I can download A Christmas Cracker. Thanks for the suggestion.
