Book Review ~ LFYI Frost, Minnesota by Judy Baer ~ 12/15/16

Blurb:
 
When Jack returns home to Minnesota, he meets the town’s newcomer. She’s bubbly, beautiful . . . and his latest adversary.

Considering that her name is Merry Noel Blake and she was born on Christmas Eve, it’s not surprising that Frost, Minnesota’s newest resident is crazy about the holiday. She has single-handedly convinced the entire town to help her turn Frost into a Christmas destination; there’s a tableau of the stable in Bethlehem, a concert, many events at the church, and Merry’s own holiday boutique.

Jack Frost has always tried to live down his whimsical name—a gift from his playful parents—and he does his best to deter Merry from making what he considers a kitschy mockery of the town and the season. But she believes that below Jack’s frosty exterior is a warm heart—and that she is the one to thaw it.
      

My Thoughts:
 
So far this Christmas, this has been my favorite read!
 
At first, I was a little iffy on the main characters.  Jack Frost seemed so superficial and Merry Blake seemed a bit too over the top sappy.
 
But, as I read their stories and got to "know" them, I came to love their characters.
 
I also came to love Frost, Minnesota.  They had so many wonderful celebrations and traditions that were so special.
 
I, too, live in a small town, so this book was near and dear to my heart :)
 
If you get a chance,  this was a great Christmas read!
