Review: Christmas on Cape Cod

Christmas on Cape Cod

Christmas on Cape Cod
By Nan Rossiter
Zebra, ASIN, B079KTR5ZP, 67 pp.

The Short of It:

A heartwarming story about family, love, and creating new traditions during the Christmas season.

The Rest of It:

I am no stranger to Nan Rossiter’s work. I think I’ve read nearly everything she’s published. Whenever I hear about something she’s written, I’m always eager to read it because it’s guaranteed to make you feel good. Christmas on Cape Cod can now be added to that feel-good list.

Christmas on Cape Cod includes some notable characters from Rossiter’s novel, The Gin and Chowder Club. which I also reviewed on this blog. That said, I don’t think you have to read the books in any kind of order. This story centers around Christmas so now is the perfect time to read it.

Asa and his son Noah head up to see his parents on the Cape for Christmas. As a single parent, Asa has his challenges but his good friend Maddie comes along for the ride and the three of them learn what Christmas means as they figure out this new life together.

I really enjoyed this story. It’s short but so full of good. Christmas stories (and movies) can be a little sappy in the telling but not here. Christmas on Cape Cod is all about family, and traditions and food and drink. It’s about letting go of what you know, in order to create something wonderful and new.

If you want to feel good, pick it up, start a fire and drink a mug of Glug, which is proudly featured in the book.

You can get Christmas on Cape Cod as a stand-alone ebook here.

Or, you can get Making Spirits Bright which is a Christmas anthology including Christmas on Cape Cod. Click here for that.

    1. And this one is so short. The perfect length to read now. I was getting a little stressed from all the commercialism out there right now and I picked this up and my Christmas cheer returned.

    1. I think you’d really enjoy Rossiter’s books. They are so heartwarming but not sappy and the setting… usually Cape Cod. Sigh. Plus she is a foodie so she is always working food into her books as well as cute pups.

    1. For sure. It’s the only time of the year the Hallmark channel is cool. But this story… you are a water girl and like your beach time and this is set on Cape Cod. Gah. I looked up real estate on Cape Cod after reading this.

  1. I read this a few weeks ago and although it was fun, I was left wanting more back story having not read the “chowder” one.

    1. I had enough distance between the two books and still didn’t feel as if I was missing anything but Gin and Chowder is so good. You should read it at some point.
