My Review:
As the end of July rapidly approached I realized I had not reviewed one single Christmas-in-July book. That's when Author Deborah Cooke graciously offered a copy of this adorable little Christmas novella to me.  And what a delight this book turned out to be!

A Berry Merry Christmas is all Christmas!  From the start in Santa's village to the sweet, naive little elf named Holly, to the letter to Santa from little Natalie, to the home baked Christmas cookies, to the kiss from Drew under the mistletoe, this little novella packed a whole lot of Christmas into these pages!  Deborah Cooke, writing as Claire Cross, created such loveable characters that I wanted to reach right into the pages and hug them.

This was a quick read of a little over a hundred pages, but I could easily see this being turned into a Hallmark Christmas movie.  Delightful!

My Rating:
