A Holiday novella. The Shoemakers and Ferraros plan to spend Christmas in Texas with Larry and Jane Ann’s brother and then take a camping trip through the Southwest. But those plans are stopped cold when they hit a rogue ice storm in Missouri and they end up snowbound in a campground. And that’s just the beginning. Includes recipes and winter camping tips.
Frannie is having a difficult time, with children and grandchildren away during a very special time of the year. This is a short novella portraying the Shoemakers and the Ferraros on a camping trip to Texas during Christmas to cure Frannie’s blues, but a snowstorm will prevent them to reach their destiny and will have them stranded at in empty campground.
This story was shorter and milder than what we are used to. It is a very quick and relaxing listen, and although there is not a murder this time to investigate, there are some strange happenings that will keep the two couples busy, with the added risk of the extreme cold and having limited food supplies. I enjoyed this one even though I kind of expected another murder mystery.
Michelle Babb did an excellent job bringing the characters to life and keeping me interested in the story. Babb’s narration definitely adds value to the book. I would recommend listening to the audiobook over reading it without a doubt.I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist to a good novel. In 2015, while wait I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. If you see me with my Bluetooth headphones on, please be gentle, I get easily startled.
I live with my boyfriend, which I met during my six-years stay in Belgium, three cockatiels, eight lovebirds, and a Gouldian finch in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.
