This isn’t the life Sam expected. When a family friend dies and leaves Sam a house and land in Whispering Creek, Tennessee, Sam must decide if leaving Wisconsin for Southern living is in her lesson plans. 
Nashville native, Cole Donoven, left his family’s electrical business to write country music. When Cole’s song writing partner and girlfriend dumps him for a country music star, Cole abandons Nashville to hold up in Whispering Creek and compose one more song. The last thing Cole expects to find in the sleepy small town is a deceased friend, estate squabbles, and a Northern beauty. Will the chaos in Whispering Creek help create a bestselling song for Cole and possibly help him find a life-long collaborator?

My Thoughts on Christmas At Whispering Creek

As a recent move took me to Tennessee, I was ecstatic to see that Barbara M. Britton’s new book, Christmas At Whispering Creek, took place there! I had the pleasure of having Barbara M. Britton as a guest earlier this year with her book Defending David!

As one of my first, and probably only, Christmas reads this year. It was jam packed with the whimsical wonder of the Joy of Christmas.

I so enjoyed how Barbara M. Britton made her characters realistic. They had real relatable struggles and life decisions that many of us have had to make. The thoughts going through Sam’s mind were some of which that have crossed my own mind. The way Barbara M. Britton developed the characters even through their struggles was great. They were well laid out and still had a joy about them and a readiness to overcome rather than buckle under. And their faith shines through in a spectacular way!

Overall this story was just what I craved to get into the Christmas spirit. It was faith filled, joyful, and the romance was beautiful. I had a wonderful time reading this one and getting to relaxed into the small town of whispering creek.

4 Stars.

*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback.
