1. Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand - I devoured this book in just a couple days, because it was a light, fun and family drama-filled book about the Quinn family during Christmas. This is perfect if you are looking for a "Hallmark movie in a book" type of read. There are 3 other books in this series that continue the Quinn family story.
2. Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak - This book follows the Birch family - and their family drama - while they spend Christmas under quarantine. Filled with family drama, this is another book you can sit back with and escape from reality for a while.
3. Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan - This is a quick, witty and funny story, and the 3rd in the Little Beach Street Bakery series. You don't need to have read the first 2 books to enjoy this one - there is a brief overview in the beginning in case you are new to the series. It's Christmas at the Little Beach Street Bakery, but a storm rolls in at just the wrong time. This is a great book if you are looking for a light, escapist holiday read.
4. Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb - This book is a World War I story set during Christmas, told through letters and postcards. It is a really endearing story and I love hearing how people wrote during the early 1900's. Our online book club is reading this, as well as some other friends of mine and everyone is really enjoying it! It isn't as light of a novel as Winter Street, and doesn't have the same type of family drama, but if you are a fan of historical fiction this is a must-read!
