Review - Baby, It's Cold Outside & Kindle Fire Giveaway!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside
BY: Susan May Warren
PUBLISHED BY: Summerside Press
ISBN: 978-1-60936-215-7
Pages: 313
Reviewed by Billy Burgess

 Dottie Morgan does not celebrate Christmas anymore.  Her only son had died during WWII and she has no family left. Dottie’s friend/co-worker Violet, who is grieving over her fiancé’s death, shows up at door as a snowstorm hits Frost, Minnesota. A mystery man ends up at Dottie’s house, along with her neighbor. She would rather spend the holidays by herself, but must make the best out an awkward situation.

I found it odd that I was reading a Christmas novel in October, but I found the novel charming and witty at times. I liked that the story is set in a small town, which I can relate to. The characters in Baby, It’s Cold Outside are grieving over lost loved ones and are struggling with the holiday season. I found the book funny and heartwarming. I can easily see this as a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie in the near future. It is a great read.

*I would like to thank LitFuse for sending me a copy to review.
