"The Christmas Jouney"
As I mentioned in my last post I want to spend some time reviewing Christmas books. After all, Christmas will be here before we know it. The first books is "The Christmas Journey" by Winnie Griggs. This is a book that I won on another blog. I really enjoy reviewing these books and helping out the author. They give these books to be used in contests for blogs and i like to give them all the exposure I can. Now here goes:
"The Christmas Journey"
Philadelphia lawyer Ryland Lassiter is everything Josephine Wylie wants - for a brother-in-law! As the sole supporter of her family, Josie's plans for herself have always had to wait. But Ryland will be ideal as the new had of the Wylie clan...once he finally realizes how perfect his is for Josie's sister.
Ry knows it's time to settle down. The newly appointed guardian to a friends daughter, he's ready for a home and family. All he needs is a bride... and Josie's sister is not the Wylie who has caught his eye. If only Josie would see the truth-- that the only Christmas present he needs is her love.
About the author:
Winnie Griggs is a city girl born and raised in southeast Louisiana's Cajun Country who grew to marry a country boy from the hills of North West Louisiana. Though her Prince charming is more comfortable riding a tractor than a white steed, the two of them have been living their own happily ever after for 30+ years. During that time they raised four children and an assortment of dogs,cats, fish, hamsters, turtles and 4H sheep.
In addition to her job at a utility company in her writing career, Winne serves on committees within her church in several writing organizations, and is active in local civic organizations -- she truly believes the ad each day you reap in proportion to what you sow.
In addition to writing and reading, Winnie enjoys spending time with her family, cooking and exploring flea markets. Readers can contact Winnie at P.O. Box 398, Plain Dealing, LA 71064, or e-mail her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
From the very start this little book packs a wallop. There is adventure from the very first page to the last page. It is set in Knotty Pine, Texas during 1892. The only thing is that I would've liked to have seen a little more about Christmas in the book. However, towards the end of the book Christmas is focused on quite a bit. There are several humorous parts that will keep you laughing out loud. I would recommend this book as a Christmas read for yourself or for someone as a gift. Stop over at Winnie's website and check this book as well as her others. The link is: http://www.winniegriggs.com/index.html.
