Giveaway Opportunity: A NANTUCKET CHRISTMAS by Nancy Thayer

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Thayer_Nantucket Christmas The holidays are right around the corner, so now is the perfect time of year to curl up with a favorite holiday book (or author)! This year, we are excited to read New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer’s A Nantucket Christmas. We have some copies to share, so enter below for your chance to win!

Holidays on this Massachusetts island are nothing short of magical, and the season’s wonderful traditions are much loved by Nicole Somerset, new to Nantucket and recently married to a handsome former attorney. Their home is already full of enticing scents of pine, baking spices, and homemade pie.

But the warm, festive mood is soon tempered by Nicole’s chilly stepdaughter, Kennedy, who arrives without a hint of holiday spirit. Determined to keep her stepmother at arm’s length—or, better yet, out of the picture altogether—Kennedy schemes to sabotage Nicole’s holiday preparations. Nicole, however, is not about to let anyone or anything tarnish her first Christmas with her new husband.

Nancy Thayer’s wonderful tale reminds us that this is the season of miracles. Before the gifts are unwrapped, surprise visitors appear, and holiday joy comes to all, both naughty and nice.

Christmas RHRC post 1December is here and Christmas is less than three weeks away. (We are scrambling to get our holiday shopping done, too.) As you and your book club near your final gathering for 2013, we’d like to share some of our favorite books and literary pairings for readers of all kinds!

If you are giving the gift of Fannie Flagg this season then we recommend a photo album. This is a fitting and timeless gift to accompany this bestselling novel’s generation-spanning storyline.

A teapot is a central symbol in Tell the Wolves I’m Home, so pairing one with the book and some holiday teas will warm up any gift (Hint: We like chai and apple cinnamon this time of year!)

And finally, we recommend bundling The Wishing Thread, an enchanting debut novel, with yarn and a pair of knitting needles. A perfect read for book lovers and knitters alike!
