Overview

Mysterious, beautiful women with secrets are to be avoided. Leanne Dresher knows it with her head, but her heart has other plans.
It's that wonderful time of the year in Christmas, Arkansas, when tourists descend and the little town's Winter Wonderland Festival pays everyone's bills through the rest of the long winter. Lee Dresher's art gallery will soon be swamped with consignments and bargain-hunting out-of-towners. What makes this season unlike all the others before it? Newcomer Becka James, whose pain-filled eyes speak of a loss she won't put into words.

Lee tries to ignore the secretive Becka. But Becka is shoulder-to-shoulder with Lee and her neighbors when the tragic work of poachers is discovered in the forestland surrounding Christmas. After that, Becka seems to be around every corner, in the backdrop of every painting and the chorus of every lovelorn song on the radio.

The flood of tourists brings thousands of new eyes to look over the residents of Christmas. Only then does Lee realize that the shadows Becka clings to are hiding something more than pain, and that Lee could lose something more than her heart.

    Well written romance

    Christmas, Arkansas, has a unique custom. Starting the last Saturday in September and ending at New Year's, the entire town converts itself into a Victorian version of a village, including everyone wearing period costumes. Tourists come for miles to shop there and the proceeds support the town for the rest of the winter. Lee Dresher fell in love with the place during a visit years before and opened an art gallery to display her work and that of other artists from the area. She loves her life, with a daughter in college and an ex-husband she never hears from plus freedom to roam the countryside getting inspiration for her painting, but suddenly things seem to be going wrong. Her daughter wants to come home for Thanksgiving and bring her father. If that weren't upsetting enough, Lee's parents want to come, too, and she's not sure she's up to that type of family reunion. Someone is shooting animals in the woods for no apparent reason, which may cut Lee off from her walks, and then there's the new woman in town, Becka James. She seems to be everywhere and related to half of the people, but there's a secret about her that no one is sharing. Lee finds her more than attractive and interesting, but she's not sure if Becka returns the feelings. Lee has been hurt before and she doesn't want to risk disrupting her life for someone who isn't interested in her. It takes someone shooting at them at Lee's house to convince both women to acknowledge what is going on between them. Becka won't share her secret though and Lee begins to believe that there isn't any chance for them at all. Things will come to a head at what has to qualify as the family reunion from Hell.

    Frankie Jones has been published for more than a decade and, unlike some writers, has not allowed her writing to stagnate into the same old style. She continues to improve on her ability to tell a story. Her character development and use of language are much advanced from her early books and she's added a flare for writing comedic scenes. Becka's Song is full of natural unforced scenes and dialogue. While it is a romance, there's also an air of suspense that hangs over the book as the town tries to solve who has brought killing into their community. All of it ties together very neatly and makes the book very entertaining to read.
