“Christmas Roses” is an absolutely delightful historical romance that lives up to its Currier and Ives style cover and the nostalgic images it brings to mind. Young widow Celia fears that if she doesn’t get more boarders, she will lose her home and be unable to care for her baby daughter. Her prayers are answered when Mark shows up at her door looking for a temporary home while he continues to search for his father. Neither is looking for love but find themselves drawn to the kind and caring qualities of the other. Anyone who tends to read romance novels will know from the beginning where this story will end but the pages between hold a treasure trove filled with all the warm magical feelings of the season that will have you believing in Christmas miracles once again.

Another of Cabot’s exceptional books that is filled with love and faith, “Christmas Roses” is a must read on a cozy evening as Christmas approaches. I have proudly added it to my own Christmas book basket.

Amanda Cabot invites readers to cozy up with a romantic, heartwarming tale of the greatest gift of all–love.
Celia Anderson doesn’t need anything for Christmas except a few more boarders, which are hard to come by in this small mining town. She certainly doesn’t have a husband on her Christmas wish list. But when a wandering carpenter finds lodging at her boarding house, she admits that she might remarry if she found the right man–the kind of man who would bring her roses for Christmas. It would take a miracle to get roses during a harsh Wyoming winter.

But Christmas, after all, is the time for miracles . . .
