I am particularly fond of reading holiday-themed books around this time of year. Whether it is a romance, mystery, women's fiction, suspense, or something else, I'm in! It is my privilege to order the books for adults, and I revel in ordering the holiday books each year. Here are some recent publications. Enjoy!
