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
