Christmas in Apple Ridge - Blog Tour

This three in one collection by Cindy Woodsmall is a Christmas book lovers dream.  It includes:  The Sound of Sleigh Bells, The Christmas Singing, and her latest Christmas story The Dawn of Christmas. 

One of the many things I enjoyed about these books are that the characters carry over from story to story focusing on a different couple in each.

Every year starting in November I try to read as many Christmas books as possible.  I assure you that Christmas in Apple Ridge will be a collection that I read year after year. 

The Sound of Sleigh Bells is a story about Beth and Jonah.  Beth who is a very talented business woman finds some of Jonah's work and wishes to start a business relationship.  Little did she understand that a personal relationship is what God had in mind.

The Sound of Sleigh Bells, which was my favorite story is about another business woman Mattie, a cake decorator, and her ex-fiance Gideon.  Several years before Gideon ended their engagement and upon returning home after a horrible fire, Beth learns the real reason behind Gideon's betrayal. 

The Dawn of Christmas is about Sadie and Levi who decided, in an attempt to please their family, to fake a courtship.  They were so talented in their "acting" that the entire town assumed it was real.  Fortunately, they were the only ones who were fooled. 

I would recommend this collection to any book lover that enjoys Christmas stories.

This book was graciously provided by WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
