I knew that C.S. Lewis and I had more in common than our Christianity when he said, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." Welcome to a celebration of faith, tea, and the written word. I'm always engaged in a book, and whether it's one I'm reading or one of the inspirational historical romances I write, there's always a cup of tea close by. Join me in a cup as we chat about faith, our favorite books and the exciting places our reading and writing adventures take us.

Nutcracker Christmas by Jennifer Allee

I'm reading a delightful holiday-themed novella by Jennifer AlLee right now: 

Nutcracker Christmas, part of the Christmas Traditions novella collection. Right now this sweet story is available as an e-book for only 99 cents!

Here's the scoop:

Isabella Brandt lives to dance, but she's spent the last four years in obscurity as part of the corps. Now, she's finally landed a principal role in The Nutcracker. But a handsome Hungarian violinist and a shocking visit from her past may knock this ballerina off her feet and ruin Christmas.

Sounds good, doesn't it?

It's 1945, and Isabella's just one of many ballerinas in the San Francisco Ballet Corps trying out for a plum role in The Nutcracker. Victor Randolf, Hungarian immigrant and violinist, is delighted for the job in the orchestra. Working together, they become close, but a Thanksgiving surprise threatens to ruin their relationship. Not to mention Christmas. And Isabella faces an entirely different looking future than she'd planned.

The 20K word novella is a quck-paced read. I love Jennifer's style. If you have a Kindle and enjoy inspirational romance, this is a sweet holiday option.
