The Christmas Cookie Chronicles: Raylene by Lori Wilde---A review

I certainly hope you have not been standing in customer service lines to return those thoughtful gifts that no one really wanted for a day now!   We've had some time to evaluate our Christmas holidays now and from this point forward, I think each year will reinstate our memories of happier Christmases.  At least I am gonna try to put on my happy face for Christmas next year.   
So are you ready for another fun, fast Christmas read? If so, here's the synopsis from Goodreads!

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Come join a meeting of the First Love Cookie Club!

“On Christmas Eve, if you sleep with kismet cookies under your pillow and dream of your own true love, he will be your destiny.”

It’s Christmas time at the Horny Toad Tavern, located in the heart of Twilight, TX. Elvis is on the jukebox, the lights twinkle outside…and inside, Raylene Pringle is wondering if it’s going to be another “Blue Christmas” without her true love, Earl.

But things are about to change—because ‘tis the season for unexpected romance and a surprise mother/daughter reunion…reminding Raylene that you should never disbelieve the legend of the kismet cookies!

And don’t miss The Christmas Cookie Chronicles: Christine available December 13th, from Avon Impulse and The Christmas Cookie Chronicles: Carrie on sale now.

From My Perspective:

The Christmas Cookie Chronicles: Raylene is a novella of 105 pages which reads fast!    Raylene, owner of the Horny Toad Tavern is being watched.  She can feel it.   She is desperately missing her husband Earl who walked away from their marriage a year ago.   She wants him to come home and forgive her for the big secret she had kept from him for years.

Instead, her newest waitress at the Tavern, stirs things inside of Raylene and she doesn't understand why.   She likes the girl/woman who is asking for her pay in cash, rather than giving her Social Security # out.   But the younger woman is definitely hiding something from Raylene and She just can't quite put her finger on it.

This was an enjoyable read and there were great characters and an interesting storyline to boot.

This sounds like a good read. I am curious about the secret the waitress is hiding. Also- I am curious if the MC's husband comes back.

Thanks for sharing. :)
