Review – A Merry Little Christmas by Anita Higman

Goodreads summary:

Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds. Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who’s preparing to spend the holidays alone…again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny’s farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she’s more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city. As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart–that sometimes love comes when you’re least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?


The book tells us the story of Franny Martin. She is thirty-three years old. She has lost her parents when she was only eighteen because of a bad storm. After she lost  her family she had to take care alone of her family farm.She continues to live in there, but she wants to sell the farm and move to the city. The farm is not sold immediatly, it is sold after twelve years.

The one who bought the farm is named Charlie, Charlie Landau who is thirty-five years old. He wanted to buy the farm to show his father that he is capable. His family, is a rich one, one of the richest family in Oklahoma.

Franny is helping Charlie to take care of the farm. After helping him for three weeks, Franny decides to leave to the city. She had always dreamed of being a singer and she hopes that her dream will come true. But there is a problem, she does not enjoy the big city live and she has developed feellings for Charlie.

What is Franny going to do? Selling the farm without knowing if the city life is good for her was not a smart ideea.

My oppinion:

This book is awsome. I loved it. Definetely 5 stars from me. It is a perfect Christmas read. I love Frank Sinatra’s Christmas song. Did I forgotten to tell you that Franny was listening ” A merry little Christmas ” of Frank Sinatra? The song is lovely, you should listen it.

I loved the characters, I loved the story:X. I loved so much Franny and Charlie. I am so glad that they fall in love!

The novel can be read fast and easy. I am sure that you all will enjoy it! I recommend it to you with all my heart!

  4. Si eu am citit cartea asta inainte de sarbatori si pur si simplu am iubit-o. E foarte draguta si plina de inocenta si a fost destul de impresionanta transformarea lui Charlie dintr-un baiat de oras intr-un fermier. De asemenea mi-a placut felul in care si-a efectuat munca, desi nu era obisnuit catusi de putin cu asa ceva.
    Partea mea preferata a fost atunci cand Franny si-a invitat noua prietena la cina. Carcaterul ei de-a lungul cartii s-a potrivit perfect cu caracterul lui Charlie. A match made in heaven ce sa mai:))
