I so enjoyed this story. And the town! Sounds like a wonderful place to live.

Hannah has come to Christmas Town to sell her great grandmother's cookie shop. The one she has been left and has no intentions to reopen. But once she's come to town and met and befriended the people, she begins to feel torn between selling and maybe, just maybe taking a chance on the cookie shop. There's just one problem, she can't cook!

Carter has been sheriff for almost a year. And he loves it here. And with the pret

Ginny Baird brings us the first book in her Christmas Town series and what a wonderful way to not only start a series, but bring some holiday spirit and cheer to the reader. This story takes place in Christmas Town, Tennessee where the population is a mere 3100 and the focus of the town is Christmas. Businesses and streets have a Christmas theme. Hannah Winchester arrives in Christmas Town for one reason and that is to look into her inheritance with the thought on putting it on the market to sel ...more

I received this book as a Goodreads Giveaway!

This book came at such a great time, right before the Christmas season, so I was very excited to read it. Although the book takes place around Christmas time, it actually had less to do with that than I expected. It takes place is a town called Christmas Town where everything is Christmas year round. I honestly felt that this was more of a winter romance than a "Christmas" novel. It was very well written and I loved the characters, even the animals. I

This book is a fairytale Christmas romance and book one in the new The Christmas Town series. The storyline is good, however, I feel that the true meaning of Christmas should have been a part of the story. This is not what I was expecting with a little too much premarital sex scenes. Ginny Baird is a good writer, but it seems this is a series that is a little less Inspiritional than I was expecting. I was given a free ARC and I chose to give it an honest review. I hate to give a 3 star to any au ...more

Love Christmas books and this one is a great Romance 2

I love to read Christmas books all year long and Ginny Baird is one of those authors who writes a story so wonderfully that you want to read it over and over. Not only that she has given us an entire town Christmas Town ...oh yes all things Christmas all year. This is the first book in the series and we see where all the magic comes from. Great book that had my from start to end.

This was a really cute story about Hannah and inheriting a bakery in Christmas Town. Hannah meets Carter, the sheriff of Christmas Town, and sparks fly between these two. Hannah doesn't want the town to know she doesn't think she will open the bakery cause she can't cook. Once Carter learns more about Hannah, he tries to help her. The Virginia cookies sounded magical!

The Christmas cookie shop

Hannah comes to Christmastown after she inherits the cookie shop. She is not sure if she can afford to reopen it. She loves the people there. She mets Carter there but will they get along ? I enjoyed this book, a very entertaining Christmas book. I was given a advance copy of this book and it was privilege to have gotten it. Would make a good movie.

Hannah inherited her grandmother's cookie shop in a town called Christmas Town. Carter is the sheriff who helps her get town when he finds her pulled off to the side of the side. This book annoyed me especially the town mayor. Nosy, bossy and did not listen to people when people tried to tell her things. Actually the whole town was in Hannah business. I was disappointed in this story.

Sweet story

This is the first book I’ve read by this author. I love Christmas stories year round. This story had a charming, very friendly small town with a major holiday theme, romance, true love, and maybe just a little magic thrown in for good measure.

A very sweet read

This book is such a sweet read. There is definitely some thing special in Christmas Town. Hannah and Carter are reluctant to take a chance again. Will it be worth the risk? You must read to find out. I can't wait to read the next one.

What a wonderful, magical story, town and characters. Yes, Virginia this book is for everyone who believes in Santa. I can't wait to read the next books in the series.

The story was good enough to keep reading to the end but the characters, as written, were totally annoying. I!I'm not tempted to pick up the next one.

Ginny Baird has been on my author reading wish list for awhile now. I finally got the chance to read one of her books with The Christmas Cookie Shop. I really have to say that I was not disappointed.


I started reading The Christmas Cookie Shop and immediately a smile broke out on my face. The story definitely invoked a feeling of Christmas, even though I read the book in October, when it was 90 degrees outside. I even started craving Christmas sugar cookies.

The Cookie Christmas Shop is the first book in Ginny Baird's new series, Christmas Town. Set in Christmas Town, Tennessee. I was given an ARC Kindle copy, for an honest review.
