A Dropped Stitches Christmas (Sisterhood Series #2) (Love Inspired #423)A Dropped Stitches Christmas (Sisterhood Series #2) by Janet Tronstad

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Janet Tronstad’s 2007 A Dropped Stitches Christmas surprised me. I didn’t think I’d want to read a book about young women who had survived cancer. The BIG C can be depressing. But not so in this book of honesty and triumph. With the advent of ereaders, it becomes possible to resurrect books that have disappeared from store shelves. I’ve read Janet Tronstad’s Dry Creek romances and yes, this story is definitely her flavor of romance. But I was enchanted by the first person narrative from the heroine and her friends. Chicklit may have died down but this author shows she can handle the subgenre with elegance and style. I loved her scrumptious hero and the beautiful but hesitant heroine. If you want a really touching Christmas read, this one’s for you! Loved it!

I want to thank everyone who took the time to leave a comment about the cover choices for Winter’s Secret which is going to get a new cover soon. Next Thursday, I’ll be posting more about this book. I’ve read all the opinions but there is one more thing to consider. That is–each book cover in a series should “fit” together or have a similar look and vibe. So I only gave you part of what should be considered in a cover art decision.

AND don’t forget TODAY– Leave a comment about a Christmas story you’ve enjoyed or love and be entered into the drawing for my slightly used copy of Janet’s book.–Lyn

    I thoroughly enjoyed AN AMISH CHRISTMAS by Cynthia Keller. Such a lovely read.

  2. Nina Banks says:

    I haven’t read the one you are talking about, but would like to. I did read
    Holiday Hideout Lynette Eason. Oh, I loved this book, really well written, with tons of action, great suspense! If you like mystery, then you must read this.

  3. Melissa B says:

    This book sounds great!
    Im collecting this Sisterhood Series, and I dont have this book yet..

    Happy Holidays!

  4. I like all of Janet T’s books so this one will be no exception I am sure.
    I am reading all Christmas books in December and one that stands out is
    “The Christmas Singing”

    Hi Lyn,
    I got my first Dropped stiches book the other day from the fall festival so would love to win this one.
    On Christmas stories to have a favourite is so hard. I think so far my favourite this year is Jillian Harts Snowflake bride. I also loved her and Janets Mail Order Christmas brides. I love reading christmas novels and have read quite a few this year. Its funny reading about the cold weather and white christmas when we have warm days (this come from someone wanting high 80’s for christmas!).

    I just read The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman for a reading group. It was pretty good. I especially liked all the cookie recipes.

  7. Terri H says:

    I have the book and will read it soon. Janet writes a good book series.

  8. I love the title of this book, I knit but not very good and I’m always dropping stitches and end up with holes, lol. I do much better at crocheting!

    There are so many good Christmas stories out there, I’ll just pull one out of the ‘fog’ in my brain and say The Christmas Shoes.

    I’ll have to look up that book, Helen! And I understand, Marianne, sometimes a book hits too close to home. Sorry to hear about your aunt.

  11. Helen says:

    I love Love Inspired romance novels! They are my favorite books to read. I just read Miracle On I-40 by Curtiss Ann Matlock. It wasn’t LI but it was still good.

  12. Dropped stitches is one i haven’t read…not sure i want to as my dear aunt was just diagnosed with leukemia after dealing over 20 years with breast cancer. The Log Cabin Christmas will become my favorite Christmas book! Thanks for the giveaway

  13. I love that series! đŸ˜€

  14. StrongWomen says:

    There’s a lot to consider, Liz, and the decision isn’t made yet! Thanks!

    I am glad that you found A Dropped Stitches Christmas uplifting.

    I’m sure you’ll find the perfect cover, notwithstanding the diverse views. Had not, in my comment, considered mechanics of print on trees.
