Skipping Christmas by John Grisham has been one of my all time favorite Christmas tales. Grisham tells a comical story about Luther and Nora who were opting out of the typical holiday frenzy. Decorating the house, shopping for gifts, having that special holiday dinner were among the traditions they were willing to forfeit for a quiet holiday cruise. They are confronted with the consequences of this decision through Grisham’s hilarious story.

Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult

Could you forgive a murderer to save a life? Maybe? Could you forgive the murderer of your husband and daughter to save the life of your surviving daughter? When it’s personal, really personal, the answers to difficult questions are often not black and white, right and wrong. For many, this is a time of year to reflect on the things that really matter in life—matters of the heart. Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult raises difficult questions as a mother, a priest, and an attorney look for answers to impossible questions. This frosty pick will melt your heart.
