Celia Anderson wants nothing more than a few more boarding students for her boarding house, which are very difficult to come by in her small mining town. She isn’t looking for a husband on that Christmas wishlist either. When a wandering carpenter finds lodging at her boarding house, she admits she would remarry if she found the right man, one that would bring her roses for Christmas. Though it would take a miracle to get roses during a harsh Wyoming winter. But Christmas is the season for miracles.
Christmas Roses by Amanda Cabot is such a nice small read. It gives the perfect amount of christmas in a short book. It probably only took me an hour to read, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t memorable. Amanda is a new author to me, i’d never heard of her before I received this for review. But she would definitely be one to keep watch out for, she has a great way with words and I wish this story was longer. It was just a cute book. Imagining the time period and the scene was the best part. Though one character really struck me wrong when he would keep after Celia trying to get her to marry him constantly. He just wouldn’t let up and it irked me. But the carpenter was such a nice and genuine man, who was just searching for his father. Its just an awesome story you have to read it to see! I want to give away so much more than this but then i’d tell you the whole story. So pick it up soon!
