Christmas Novels for Adults

Today's feature is about books....novels that center around Christmas...but they are books for adults not children. We deserve a good holiday read too!  I haven't read all of these but I've searched for some good ones to share with you here at Rduolph Ramblings. If you have read any of them, please leave a comment with your opinions about the book!
A small town and 160 million lottery ticket....and someone disappears....hmmmm.
Two adults who meet on the internet decide to exchange homes from Christmas.

Another small town and a lady who owns a junk shop and seems like a gypsy. This creates problems when she doesn't fit the image of the small town!

A story of fresh starts and new beginnings.

Again I welcome your input on these novels!

Organizing with Trunks

I have to say I absolutely love the idea of organizing Christmas books and movies inside trunks. Right now I have a trunk that I could clean out and use for the books. I have another trunk that would be great too but right now it houses Evan's toys. Perhaps the books and movies will BOTH fit in the one this idea from: Sunny Side Up.
