Can't-Wait Wednesday: Holly and Ivy by Fern Michaels @FernMichaels @KensingtonBooks

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa @ Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Find out more here.

Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

TITLE: Holly and Ivy
AUTHOR: Fern Michaels
PUBLISHER: Kensington Publishing Corporation
FORMAT: Hardcover
LENGTH: 320 pages
GENRE: Fiction/Holiday
ISBN: 9781496703170
In a heartwarming novel of secret wishes and family lost and found, acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels creates a timeless Christmas story to cherish . . .

The flames of memory always seem to glow a little brighter during the holidays. Perhaps that's why this time of year is so difficult for airline heiress Ivy Macintosh, as she faces thoughts of yet another festive season alone. Since the plane crash that claimed the lives of her husband and two children eight years ago, she's been submerged in grief.

When eleven-year-old Holly Greenwood knocks on her door, lost and frightened after a forbidden visit to her singing teacher, Ivy's self-imposed exile is shattered. Holly has an extraordinary voice, and wants nothing more than to perform in an upcoming Christmas musical. Holly's father, Daniel, doesn't allow music in their home, refusing to give a good reason why--just as he refuses to talk about Holly's mother. Ivy has no idea how closely she and Daniel are linked by their tragic pasts, yet she's drawn to the warmth she senses beneath his gruff exterior. And as Christmas nears, their shared concern for Holly begins to draw Ivy back into the world again . . . and toward a family who may need her just as much as she needs them . . .

Is it too early for Christmas? Never! I am a sucker for Christmas stories, the sappier the better LOL! I have never read anything by this author, but I know she's very popular. I'm adding this one to my Wishlist.

  1. I like to plan a few Christmasy reads around the holidays and it seems a lot of them are coming out right now.

  2. It's never too early to read about Christmas! This sounds wonderful. Great choice.

  3. Um, normally I'm one of those bah humbug kinda people, but I've decided I don't like the heat, would rather have winter weather. Don't know about reading about Christmas too much yet though. I haven't read this author yet, I know she's popular. Hope you get a hold of this one soon!

  6. Aw, I haven't heard of this one, but it looks and sounds like my kind of read. Plus, no, it's never too early for cute Christmas novels. Thanks for the introduction, Darlene, and for visiting Finding Wonderland. :)

  7. First of all, Darlene, I apologize for the late comment back.... Sometimes I do get behind, but I make every effort to catch up, as I firmly believe in commenting back on the blogs of those nice bloggers who have taken the time to comment on mine. :) :)
