CHRISTMAS ROSES is a charming Christmas story by acclaimed author Amanda Cabot. I love Christmas stories and thoroughly enjoyed this one. It is a easy read, but I took it slowly, so it would last several days, savoring each page before moving on.
Mark is a dear, and there’s more to this wanderer than meets the eye. And Celia is a struggling widow with a deathly ill child, needy one moment and very capable the next. The type of woman that all men want to marry. Don’t miss CHRISTMAS ROSES. Beautifully done in hard back, perfect for gift giving. $14.99. 172 pages.
