Disclosure: I received these products for free to review . The opinions in my review are honest and my own.

Like many other people, I love sitting down and taking in a heartwarming story  – either through a movie or good book. Since I have seen many of the classic Christmas movies by now, I usually do this in the form of a fun book. Over the past month, I was given the opportunity to read a new Christmas book by Bara Briggs Ward – The Snowman Maker. Being a new holiday book, I couldn’t wait to review this book when it arrived!

The Snowman Maker: What is It

The Snowman Maker is a heartwarming tale of hope and rekindling love. The story revolves around Ben and Ellie, who have been having problems in their marriage. Ben has been distancing himself from his wife, leaving her feeling down. All of their problems started when Ben got a cardboard box from his dying father before he passed away. Thing seem to be changing when they discover an old sleigh decorated in pine boughs and silver bells – a sleigh that has something to do with a little boy and a Cardboard box.

The Snowman Maker: Style

One of the things I really love about the The Snowman Maker is the pacing and character development. Barbara Briggs Ward does a great job weaving the story and truly getting her readers interested in her story. It is rare that you find books that are this well written. Just expect a clean, family friendly book revolving around family and understanding.

The Snowman Maker: My Thoughts

Okay, this is one of those books that give you a warm, fuzzy feeling after reading it. This Christmas book deals with the true meaning of family, love, and what Christmas is truly about. While it is not the type of book I would normally read, I did enjoy it and couldn’t put it down. Since The Snowman Maker did such a great job winning me over, I am happy to give it an A rating and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun Christmas love story.

    To be honest, I probably wouldn't have picked this book up based solely on the title/cover (I'm more of a fast-paced thriller reader), but your review makes me curious and now I plan to pick up a copy – anytime someone says "I couldn't put it down," I figure it's worth a read! Thanks for the review!

      Thanks, Tara! I am the same way. I am usually a big fantasy and sci-fi reader, so this was very different for me! I was surprised just how much I liked it!
