Okay, so I admit it. I cringe and whine outwardly when the Christmas decorations start to show up in the department stores, but inwardly, my heart gives a little cheer.
Yes! It says, We can start digging out the tree soon. In just six more weeks. Tops. Of course, Mr. Castle prefers to wait until after Thanksgiving.
But maybe if we just bring out the decorations and wait on the tree. A few snow-globes mixed in with the fall foliage, right? We can get away with at least that.... right? I try to stay strong and tell my excited little heart no, we need to wait.
But still, that desire remains, and an eagerness for Christmas carols and glittering lights grows with each falling leaf and cold morning. Can I get an AMEN here?
I know some folks think rushing the season is silly. But is it really rushing it, or extending it? Or, spreading it out?
Ha! I feel like I'm grasping for straws here. LOL!
So here's the thing, I put up my Christmas story early. I tried to be good and wait, but...
Yeah, it didn't happen.

This is a wonderful story about love, romance, faith, mercy and second chances. All the characters were well written. Even though this is a short story, the characters really resonated with me. I read it in one sitting and recommend it to anyone any time of the year. It is so much more than just a Christmas story. --Bernadette
What an adorable story. Great characters and plot. --mima
One of the sweetest books I have read. A story about forgiveness, reconciliation, and second chances. Highly recommend and one I could read again. Love books that I have good feelings when I finish. A clean, inspirational romance and more. --Renee
