looking for a good christmas themed book. Was wondering if anyone has any good recommendations. I don't mind if it has romance in it


I know Debbie Macomber writes alot of christmas themed books so if anyone knows of anything let me know or if you have anything maybe we can work something out.

Debbie Macomber has:

Mercy, Shirley and Goodness

Can this be Christmas?

A Cedar Cove Christmas - This one is okay if you can get pass the corniness of the characters' names

Christmas Basket

Christmas Angels - I think this is a combo of 3 books.

Christmas Letters - I really like this one.

Christmas Wishes

Small Town Christmas - a reprint of Return to Promise and Mail-Order Bride.

Glad Tidings - a reprint of older books. I can't remember which ones.

Other Christmas books that I know of:

Santa, Baby - a collection with Jennifer Crusie & Lori Foster

The Spy Who Came for Christmas - David Morrell

Dashing Through The Mall - Sherryl Woods

An Affair before Christmas - Eloisa James - Historical

All Through the Night - Suzanne Brockman

Vision of Sugar Plum - Janet Evanovich

A Wallflower Christmas - Lisa Kleypas

The Twilight Before Christmas - Christine Feehan

Unwrapping Christmas - Lori Copeland

This Christmas - a collection with Jane Green & Jennifer Coburn

This year will be different - Maeve Binchy

Their Christmas Wish come true - Cara Colter

A Christmas Beginning - Anne Perry

The Christmas Bus - Melody Carlson

A Coventry Christmas - Becky Cochrane

A Covington Christmas - Joane Medlicott

A Seduction at Christmas - Cathy Maxwell

Sarah's Song - Karen Kingsbury

Scrooge Wore Spurs & Searching For Santa - Janet Dailey

These are all I can think of right now. I bet others can give you more.

    I have a few on my list.  I'll give you a 2 for 1 deal if you are interested.

    By the way, A Visit From Sir Nicholas is also a Christmas themed book; it just doesn't really look like it based on the cover.

    Mary Kay Andrews has one...Blue Christmas I believe is the title. Haven't read it yet, but have it on hold at my local library. I'll let you know what I think after reading it.

    darn it I'm trying to hold off another week on Must Love Mistletoe but it's getting harder and harder!  of course I don't know 'why' I'm trying to wait since I've already read 2 Christmas stories - A Virgin River Christmas by Robyn Carr and All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks - nope make that 3 christmas stories because The Mane Event by Shelly Laurenston was set around Christmas as well!
