Christmas Roses Book Review

SUMMARY:  Celia Anderson doesn't have a husband on her Christmas wish list.  But when a traveling carpenter finds lodging at her boardinghouse, 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, though, to find roses during a harsh Wyoming winter.
     But Christmas, after all, is the time for miracles...

REVIEW:  This is a sweet story by Amanda Cabot.  I like how Celia doesn't bow down to the common idea that she remarry.  If she did, she wants it to be different from her first marriage, which was arranged.  She is determined to give her daughter the best she can, even if that means avoiding the intentions of her well-meaning suitors.  Mark Williams has one goal in his mind - to find the father that left when he was a young boy.  I like how Mark pitches in around Celia's boardinghouse, helping wherever needed while he takes a break from his search.  Once he finds someone connected with his father's past, Mark helps the man by working on his cabin and treating him like family.  My favorite part is the Christmas roses Celia gets and all that is tied into them.  This is a fabulous book that will warm your heart.
