A Nostalgic Christmas Story -- A Merry Little Christmas

About A Merry Little Christmas:

Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds.

Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who's preparing to spend the holidays alone...again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny's farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and sh
e's more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city.

As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart-that sometimes love comes when you're least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach? 

My Thoughts:

A Merry Little Christmas is an enjoyable story to read during the holiday season.  The characters are fun and entertaining, and the interaction between Franny and Charlie grabs you from their very first dance.  

Besides the expected love story in your typical Christmas novel, there are several other stories that play out in the book.  Cultural issues from the 1960s and complicated family dynamics add depth to the story and provide some interesting twists.  Several musical references can make you feel nostalgic for traditional Christmas songs.

Some of the details of the story seem a little disjointed, and one of the major conflicts is resolved a little too quickly to be realistic.  All in all, though, this is a fun and quick Christmas read.
