Dreary story motivated by The Big Misunderstanding. God forbid they just have a conversation and clear the air. Not that they were the only ones suffering from inertia. The three brothers kept talking about how worried they were that their mother and sister were a week or two late arriving for the Christmas holiday. Well why did one or two or three of them for that matter go looking for them? Instead they were sleigh riding and gathering greenery. Useless sots. This story was so boring and repetitious you were grateful it was over in 59 pages.

Cozy up near a fire for an evening of fun reading with A Birmingham Family Christmas. A dislike between past lovers who have lived a spoken lie for eleven years, fueled by years of hurt and anger, written with the usual style Bolen displays, make this a lively, sometimes a quite funny read. Both have grown into well-respected people. Both know not to trust the opposite sex. Hence, neither have married. Annabelle and Spencer join a three-day Christmas party. They are brought together in happenstance fashion. Annabelle is cousin to her happily married friend, Emma Birmingham. She’s invited to spend the Christmas holiday with her cousin because her father recently passed away. Adam Birmingham, Spencer’s employer, takes pity on Spencer whose family is not in town, invites him to spend the holidays. The fun begins! The only people who know their past connection are Spencer, Annabelle, and Annabelle’s French maid, Marie. Sparks fly, both are extremely rude to the other. Emma and Adam haven’t a clue what is going on. Emma had been hoping to do a little match-making. She, instead, adds fuel to the simmering battle! A comical character much enjoyed is the little French maid with her inability to grab the correct word while expressing herself, embarrassingly so. She’ll keep you laughing. I enjoyed my evening. It provided Christmas spirit, enhanced by Christmas tradition. You may just find yourself taking a fan to your face after experiencing what Spencer does when he catches Annabelle under the mistletoe! An evening with a smile awaits you!

Miss Annabelle Lippincott, age 28, is content being a spinster. Eleven years ago, she had come home from her first season with her heart broken by Spencer Woodruff. Despite his promise to ask her father for her hand, he never did. However, without her knowledge, Annabelle’s father told him that she had accepted another man’s proposal leaving him deeply hurt. Annabelle’s young cousin, Emma, has recently married Adam Birmingham. Annabelle has been invited to spend Christmas at Camden Hall, the home of Nicholas Birmingham. There are three Birmingham brothers and one sister. Spencer Woodruff works as Vice President for Adam Birmingham at his bank and Adam has invited him to join the Birmingham family for Christmas at Camden Hall. When Annabelle and Spencer meet, the animosity they feel toward one another makes it difficult for them to stand the other’s company. However, they both try to be polite and get through the festivities. Will they finally learn the truth about what Annabelle’s father did and is there a way for them to forgive and put the past behind them? This is a sweet and clean holiday novel that is short and just right to get one in the Christmas spirit. I enjoy the author’s novels and this one rates right along with all of her books. Copy provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

A Birmingham Family Christmas by Cheryl Bolen Book starts out with other works by the author. Story starts with Annabelle and she was brought up with her father and grandfather. Emma, her cousin has been blessed over the years also. Annabelle is waiting for the man that hadn't requested to marry her after the Season. Even though this is a series book you are brought up to date with who is who from the start. Annabelle will accompany Emma and her husband to Camden Hall for the Christmas holiday. Story also follows others in the family. Adam is in charge of the bank and hosting the big family event and has invited him to join them. They had gone to school together. Love catching up with the others in the family as I have followed this series. Lots of fun and excitement, drama and the holidays. Spencer had learned women were not to be trusted and 11 years ago he had turned her down for marriage. Love how children put baskets together for those in need-so generous. Adults will help make toys for male children for the baskets. Loved hearing of the tools used to make the toys and the process of using the hand tools. Others are matchmaking Spencer and Annabelle but they each hold a secret. Love hearing how they decorate for the holiday, fresh greens! Injuries occur and feelings are hurt in the process... Amabelle feels like an outsider and Spencer is known as fourth Birmingham brother although he's not related. Misunderstandings from eleven years ago as the truth comes out. There is a lot of joy but their sister and mother may not make it in time for Christmas, they should have arrived by now... Other works by the author are highlighted at the end along with summaries of some of them. Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.
