I received a Christmas book for free recently that I finished reading just as the holidays were ending. This book is part of the Cedar Cove series by Debbie Macomber.
I would love to see one of those movies that comes out at Christmas that is based on this short book. I could just picture this book as a movie all the time I was reading it. I could even imagine the character Linc being played by the guy who plays Raymond's brother on TV.
I suppose it would be classified as a romance novel — fiction for sure, with a good combination of comedy and tragedy, which makes for a very good book or movie. Perhaps this teaser will encourage you to read it as well:
