I knew I posted my Best Of list too early. I read a Christmas novella today called IF YOU BELIEVE IN ME and it was SO GOOD! It’s by my friend Natalie Damschroder, which is why I bought it but not why I love it. It’s a Christmas reunion story that sounds sadder than it is: a missing soldier, the girl left behind. Everyone has given Kale up for dead except for Amber. The Army has declared him missing, and no one has heard from him for months. But Amber won’t give up hope. The tension as the holiday approaches is just wonderful, and her superstitions are so sweet. It’s just a wonderful story. Go read it!
