Review: The Christmas Lamp by Lori Copeland

The town of Nativity, Missouri is in trouble. Ever since the new highway dropped them off the map, tourism has been down. But the town does Christmas up big every year and it's costing them quite a bit of money. A new consultant, Jake, has come in to help them sort out their finances but he wants to do away with all their Christmas traditions!

Roni loves the town's traditions and is upset by Jake's choices. But she's attracted to Jake. Can they work through their differences and save Nativity?

This is a lovely little Christmas novella. It's such a sweet story and invokes the feeling and spirit of Christmas. It's got a little romance and of course a huge selling point for me is that it's set in Missouri. I have to admit I was so surprised by what the Christmas Lamp was...that was completely unexpected. But the story overall is lovely and since I'm a sap this time of year, I was even teary by the end. (also was listening to Christmas music) It's a quick read, it took me less than two hours, but perfect if you have a couple of minutes this holiday season.

This sounds like a read I would enjoy. As busy as I am now I need to wrap my mind around shorter stories to hold my short attention span!
