Christmas, Alabama - Review

Idgie Says:
I enjoy a series that involves interwoven characters in one town - they allow the reader to hang on to characters that perhaps they aren't ready to part ways with.... characters that may only be side items in the other books, but they are still there, being interesting people.

Susan does a very good job of keeping her people circling each other, while bringing in new faces to keep the stories fresh.

This particular story involves  a visiting doctor, a woman who's family feel she "needs a man", many man-hunting other women, bad casseroles and snow in Alabama - what's not to like!

I don't want to give any of the plot away so I won't say more, but if you enjoy stories filled with Southern Charm, this is a great series for you.

This was to be a series of 4 books only, but Susan tells us that she's found some new characters and there will be more Alabama novels coming our way!

Photographer Rachel Prudhomme has finally settled in Ministry, Alabama. Sure, the pace is slower, and she's had her heart blessed more times than she can count, but putting down her roots where her family is feels right, if only the town's new doctor and now neighbor weren't so hot and constantly igniting her dreams. How can she keep her vow to steer clear of men when he keeps sauntering across her path?

For Dr. Nicholas Sullivan to get his dream job in Atlanta, he must fill in at Ministry General, where they're short staffed for the holidays. He never expects to fall for his beautiful next door neighbor, Rachel.

Soon, Nick and Rachel make a deal. They'll pretend to date so Rachel can avoid the scrutiny from her family to "find a good man" and Nick can avoid the single lovelies in town who take his short stay as a challenge. Amidst the carolers, Christmas lights, and an unlikely Alabama snowstorm, Nick and Rachel can't help but notice the powerful emotional and physical attraction between them. Will a Christmas miracle be all it takes to make all of their dreams come true?
