CHRISTMAS TOWN, TENNESSEE
Where everyday dreams come true!
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ginny Baird completes her heartwarming holiday series...
Fledgling newspaper reporter Noelle Christmas is assigned to write a story on the Christmas Cookie Shop and the famous Virginia Cookies sold there. Handsome photojournalist Tom Wilson is sent along to help her. Once their investigation begins, Tom is thrown by what appears in his camera’s viewfinder, versus what gets recorded as photos. Noelle is in for a few surprises too, including romantic feelings that emerge each time that Tom is near. When the pair unearths an old, never-published article on the Christmas Cookie Shop, they’re faced with certain truths that could affect their futures. Can Tom, who is falling for pretty Noelle, dare to believe in Christmas magic and open up his heart?
For the past two years, Ginny Baird has invited readers to visit Christmas Town, Tennessee, an idyllic small town full of friendly people and magical charm. Legend has it that bakery owner Lena Winchester created what’s called Virginia Cookies, as a way to lift the spirits of those in town during the Great Depression. Back then, Lena only made one type of cookie to inspire all. Today, Lena’s great-granddaughter Hannah Livingston runs the Christmas Cookie Shop from the same location. For one day a year, Hannah makes and sells out the Virginia Cookies. Using her great-grandmother’s recipe, Hannah makes three different types of cookies to inspire love, forgiveness and good deeds. People from far and wide believe in the cookie inspirations. But are these beliefs simply one’s sub-conscience believing all the hype or is there truly something special about these cookies. In Noelle’s Best Christmas, Christmas Town reveals itself.
Noelle Christmas is Christmas Town’s hometown girl who left to pursue her dream of being a journalist. Currently a newspaper reporter in Raleigh, Noelle is tasked with writing a human interest story on her hometown and the appeal of the Christmas Cookie Shop. While Noelle is writing the story, it’s photojournalist Tom Wilson’s job to document the town through photos. The pair has three weeks to write the story and capture the essence of Christmas Town. Unbeknownst to either of them, Christmas Town has been waiting on them and this Christmas will be one they will never forget.
Noelle and Tom are both in their mid-twenties and after earning master degrees are embarking on their chosen careers. Neither is looking for love, but that doesn’t mean fate and love aren’t looking for them. While these two work on discovering more about Christmas Town, they also discover “There’s no better place for discovering Christmas magic and falling in love than Christmas Town.” Noelle and Tom are both wonderful characters. They have their funny moments, but they also have their sweet romantic moments. I loved watching them navigate their way through truly falling in love for the first time and discovering just what being with the one can inspire. Noelle’s Best Christmas is the eighth and final book in the series. It is a standalone read, however I think reading The Christmas Cookie Shop and Only You at Christmas, will make certain events in the book just a little bit more special.
I’ve read all the books in the Christmas Town series, and there are not enough words to convey how I feel about this series. I’m just going to say it, Ginny has potentially ruined me for any other Christmas series. Her writing allows you to visualize this charming town. She manages to infuse the magic and spirit of Christmas into year heart, no matter the time of year you read the stories. It’s like she literally teleports you into the pages.
Little Virginia O’Hanlon once asked if Santa Claus was real. The answer is yes. As long as you believe in love, the goodness of man, and have a pure heart, anything is possible. That includes Christmas magic, for Christmas magic flows through us, just as our blood does. The residents of Christmas Town may not see Santa, but there’s no denying he’s touched each and everyone of their lives. If you’re looking for a sweet romance book that transports you to a magical place, where love has no bounds, and friendship is open and endless and you truly do feel the essence and magic of Christmas, then I highly recommend Ginny Baird’s Christmas Town series.
