Off The Shelf: Bed & Breakfast by Lois Battle

Bed and BreakfastBed and Breakfast by Lois Battle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the December group read for my Southern Lit Lovers group on Goodreads and my nomination for the month which means I'm leading the chat!

I've had this book on my living room shelf for years, tried it a couple of times & never finished, but I kept it with my Christmas books because, honestly, I adore the cover!

Am I glad I held onto it! I so enjoyed this novel! At times it reminded me of other Southern family novels I've read, but that didn't take away from it. I didn't want to put it down and didn't want it to end once I got there. And ever since visiting the Charleston & Folly Beach areas of South Carolina briefly early this year, I have a better appreciation for & now enjoy novels set in SC as a whole.

I also liked the fact this wasn't the usual type Christmas novel I end up reading at this time of year; it's a Southern family novel that happens to take place around Christmas. Such a great read! I have it down as 4 of 5 stars but may up that to 5 of 5 stars.  We'll see!

If you love Southern novels like Mary Alice Monroe's The Beach House, I believe you would enjoy Lois Battle's Bed & Breakfast!
