Curling up with one of these cozy romance novels, a mug of hot cocoa, and a warm blanket sounds like the perfect way to spend a winter day this holiday season! All five of these books are sweet, funny, and sure to get you in the of Christmas spirit!
Her Christmas Handyman
Her Christmas Handyman is the perfect holiday romance! When Hope Masterson arrived at the Gingerbread Inn to help her grandmother over the holidays, the last thing she expected was to encounter Enoch Dunlap. They’d known each other as teens, but now they suddenly found themselves attracted to each other as adults.
Their connection is abruptly interrupted when things begin disappearing from the Inn. It started as food and other small items, but when someone steals jewelry, Hope is accused. It’s up to Enoch and Hope to find the thief…and they might find love along the way as well!
This is the first book in Laura Ann’s Gingerbread Inn trilogy. The other books in the series are Her Christmas Baker and Her Christmas Detective.
The Dating Charade
The Dating Charade is a sweet, funny, and heartwarming Rom-Com! Cassie Everson is done with online dating. But when she connects with Jett Bentley, a handsome and kind firefighter, there is an undeniable spark. That is, until they both return home to find themselves suddenly caring for three children – each.
They independently decide to keep the kids a secret. After all, they’ll figure things out and the kids will go somewhere else soon. In a series of both honest and hilarious events, Cassie and Jett try to continue dating, while hiding the fact that they are overwhelmed trying to add children into the mix of their already busy lives. But they both come to realize that they can’t imagine life without these kids they’ve come to love. Does that mean they have to give up on their dreams a life together?
Finding Father Christmas
Robin Jones Gunn is one of my favorite authors, so when she released Finding Father Christmas, I couldn’t wait to read it!
Miranda Carson is determined to find her father. But when a new turn leads her to London during the holidays, she seems to have found yet another dead end. Discouraged and running out of clues, Miranda is unexpectedly welcomed by a family who she quickly comes to love. The only problem is, they don’t know her true identity. She is faced with the choice of revealing the truth that could hurt them or returning home without a place to belong. I love the authentic characters, interconnected stories, and holiday spirit in all three of these books!
Finding Father Christmas is the first book in the Father Christmas series. You can find Engaging Father Christmas and Kissing Father Christmas on Amazon.
These novellas were also made into movies! You can find a DVD with Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas on Amazon. You can also find the final movie on Amazon: Marrying Father Christmas on DVD.
Falling Like Snowflakes
Denise Hunter is another one of my favorite authors! Falling Like Snowflakes is on my list to read this Christmas season!

Luckily, Eden and Micah, hiding under the psuedonyms of find a haven at Beau Callahan’s Christmas tree farm.

This is the first book in the Summer Harbor Series. You can find The Goodbye Bride and Just A Kiss on Amazon. I love that all three books tie in some of the same characters!
The Christmas Bookshop
The Christmas Bookshop is a festive, cozy, romantic novel that would be lovely to curl up with this holiday season! Carmen is not exactly excited to be spending Christmas with her perfect sister Sofia. Carmen always felt like an outcast compared to Sofia, who has perfect children, a perfect home, and a seemingly perfect life.
But this holiday season, Carmen has few options after being laid off and nearly broke. So she moves in with her sister and begins helping Mr. McCredie restore his old bookshop. It’s dusty, shabby, and disorganized, but Carmen sees the potential for more. She resolves to revitalize the bookshop with some Christmas cheer.
But when a charming author appears on the scene, Carmen’s plans are interrupted. He’s interested in the bookshop, and there is an unmistakable spark between them. As tensions rise in her family and romance enters her life, can Carmen restore the bookshop in time for the holiday season? And will she find love this Christmas?
