Naomi loved a mystery, and it looked like the Amish woman was determined to do her part of the figuring out how to solve this one. No matter what anyone thought.

Book Beginnings
Cheryl Cooper drove her dark blue Ford Focus down the quiet country road, passing horse and buggy. The holidays were approaching, and she looked forward to experiencing them in this quaint town of Sugarcreek. Her heart ached a bit as she realized this might be the first time in five years she won't be spending the holidays with family or a fiancé. Even though she knew now that her move to Sugarcreek after her breakup with Lance had been the right decision, the familiarity of their holiday routines created a hole inside that she hadn't expected.

  2. I've never read a book about Amish folks, or not since I read the book The Shunning. it wasn't complimentary to their lifestyle so I wouldn't recommend it. Thanks for hosting.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
