It took me almost a week into December for me to finish a book. It’s almost unusual at this point!
Read quite a few books I guess, but not as many as I thought I would. Check it out.
Bookshop by the Sea by Denise Hunter
What a good read 😍 all the feels y’all.
All. The. Feels.
In typical Denise Hunter fashion, I was hooked in by the plot of the guy who left to pursue a career away from the love of his life and then gets stuck during a Hurricane and he helps her with her dream and 😍😍😍😍 I don’t want to spoil it.
Take a Chance on Me by Becky Wade
This is the novella that starts off the Misty River series and as always, it was so good!
After reading the story, I felt like I had actually read it before, but I don’t have the book and I don’t remember reading the ebook version… so I’m not sure. Even if I did read it before, it was still good and worth the second read!
I can’t wait for the next story to come out in the Misty River series. I love Becky Wade – have I mentioned that before??
Shadows of Swanford Abbey by Julie Klassen
A stand alone mystery that I waited months for and it was so well worth the wait. Julie Klassen never disappoints me. At this point, I don’t care what genre you’re into, you probably need to read her work. *shrug*
But I know, it took me 5 whole days to finish! I’ve been busy. Lol if I didn’t have a lot to do, totally would have had it read in max two days!
The Return by Nicholas Sparks
The only reason this one took me a while to read was because I kept this one as more of an ebook read than physical book. So while I was reading the other books, I read this one on ebook version while I was out and about (because I read even when I’m not at home… i.e. during intermission at hockey games). I did read maybe like a quarter of it physically in my hands, but I feel like I made solid ground reading it on my phone.
To me he’s more of a suspense writer than romance writer the way he writes stories and continues the plot. You don’t really know how it’ll end or where the story will go until it’s over.
This one was no different. I always enjoy a Nicholas Sparks story.
Vying for the Viscount by Kristi Ann Hunter
I need more of Kristi Ann Hunter’s books… this is only my fourth. I’m apparently slacking. I’m sure she has more. SURELY.
This was a pretty comical read for me and you know how it’ll end, but getting there was the best part! Ugh, such a cute story.
The Runaway Bride by Jody Hedlund
This is the book I started while waiting at the post office in line for an hour. LOL
The characters cracked me up in this one at times. I was so glad when Arabella was able to see her worth and stand up for herself and her beliefs by the end!
This was the 2nd book in the Bride Ships series. The third will be finished in the new year.
Happy New Year and Happy Reading!

I have read the Denise Hunter and the Jody Hedlund. Loved both. The Julie Klassen is on my TBR pile. I don’t read Nicholas Sparks anymore because I don’t like sad endings! As for the other books on your list – I just might have to add them to my wish list! In December I read:
– The Whisper in the Wind by Rachael Bloome. Loves it!
– If We Could Have Coffee by Holley Gerth. This was a short 30 day devotional. Loved it.
– The Devotions by Tauren Wells. Awesome book. The only downside is that you have to order from his website.
– The Air I Breathe by Louie Giglio. A great book all about worship.
– Under the Texas Mistletoe by Karen Witemeyer. 3 novellas in one. The first was my favorite because of the similarity to A Christmas Carol.
– An Unforgettable Christmas by Ginny Baird. A wonderful story.
