An Endless Christmas

5 Stars
Hardcover, 231 pages
Published October 13th 2015 by Worthy Inspired

My Review: I absolutely loved this book. When I picked it up, I thought it was a romance, but it was oh so much more than that. Katie was invited to spend Christmas with Micah’s extended family. She was a bit nervous having only been dating for 10 months and coming from a rather dysfunctional family but they packed up and left warm, sunny Fort Meyers for the cold north. When Micah proposes in front of the family, she says no. This does not deter him or the family from being kind to her and treating her as one of their own. Things can be quite chaotic at times with all the adult children of Wilson and Dodie Binder there plus their children. In the small cottage and barn annex, it is a full house, full of love, laughter and joy. I loved the idea of unplugging for the holidays and hiding the phones and Ipads away in a basket. This small town had so much to offer this group of people that they were always on the go. When a terrible situation arises they all band together to support one another. Full of prayer, song and blessings, this family is one that I would love to spend Christmas with. This is a Christmas story that everyone should get the opportunity to read.

I have never read anything by Nancy Naigle before. I requested an ARC of this book because I loved the cover, the title and the synopsis by the publisher. I will definitely look for more by this author. I loved the story, the characters and of course the Christmas setting. Check this book out when it is released on October 18th, you won’t be disappointed.
