What's your favorite holiday story?


Congratulations to "Martimagic", the winner in Julie's giveaway. Please contact JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE to claim your prize!

What’s your favorite holiday story? Do you read to get into the mood of the season? Or does the season put you in the mood to read certain stories this time of year?

Clement Moore’s THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS?

Dr. Seuss’s THE GRINCH?

C.S. Lewis’s THE LION, THE WITCH & THE WARDROBE?

Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL?

O. Henry’s THE GIFT OF THE MAGI?

Chris Van Allsburg’s THE POLAR EXPRESS?

AMAHL AND THE NIGHT VISITORS? RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER? THE NUTCRACKER? (Those were all something else before they were adapted into books—an opera, a song, a ballet)

Do you prefer something more suspenseful? CROSSFIRE CHRISTMAS

Or romance on the lighter side? A COLDWATER CHRISTMAS

Something sweet? MRS. MIRACLE

Or something spicy? HOT WINTER NIGHTS



Giveaway:

To celebrate the season—be it Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, New Year’s or something unique to you and yours—I’ll give away a copy of one of MY holiday books to one lucky poster. 

Ask a question or leave a comment sharing YOUR favorite holiday story.

Happy Holidays!
Julie Miller

  1. I love the story of Annabelle in Annabella’s Wish. Randy Travis narrates it.

    1. I'm not familiar with that one. But Randy has a great voice for narration.

  2. I love The Grinch book and so do my kids. I love any Christmas story. Love to read Seeet Dreams by Kristen Ashley and Lori Foster has a couple good Xmas anthologies. Debbie Macomber has several good ones too. Give me a Xmas story and I will read it.

  4. I love Scrooge story as told through the movie Scrooged with Bill Murray! Bookwise, I love This Christmas by Jeannie Moon, The Mistletoe Medley by Jennifer Snow, Candy Cane Christmas by Laura Trentham. The Snowbound at Christmas anthology has four contemporary novellas! A Cowboy's Christmas Eve by R.C. Ryan is so good! And my very favorite Christmas story is The Christmas Cowboy Hero by Donna Grant! The hero is an ex-Navy Seal and cowboy and the heroine is down-on-her luck woman raising her two younger brothers by herself. It has so many feels! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    1. You know, I've only read the actual book once, back in college. But I've read the play/seen the play several times (my hubby played Bob Cratchit)/and, of course, have watched various incarnations of the movie. My favorite version is Alistair Sim's. I think Patrick Stewart's version is my second favorite.

    1. Christmas at home with the family. Weather-permitting, of course. Bad weather = bad roads = everyone I love stays home and stays safe.

  9. All these books sound wonderful. My favorite Christmas story is The Grinch

  10. I am sorry I missed this giveaway. I discovered your books when I first started reading Harlequin Intrigues and read all the Taylor Clan books for starters. Your Beast In The Tower is my favorite so far. I will have to look for your 2 Christmas books listed above. Your holiday weather dependent plans mirror ours. We spent too many years fighting horrible roads to get to family for the holidays. (We were military and rarely near family) I make sure our children know we do not want them doing the same. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

  11. Sorry you missed the giveaway, too, Patricia. But I'm so pleased to hear you're a fan of the Taylor Clan and BEAST IN THE TOWER, especially! That makes my day.
    If you don't already, I encourage you to follow my author page on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/JulieMillerAuth/ I talk books there, share snippets, etc.
    I do occasional giveaways there. Plus, I'll be back here on JRS in March to blog about my next new release, TARGET ON HER BACK. I'll do a giveaway then, too.
    Thank you and your family for their service. I come from a Marine Corps family, so I know something of what you said. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
