Skipping Christmas by John Grisham
Luther and Nora Krank are fed up with the chaos of Christmas. The endless shopping lists, the frenzied dashes through the mall, the hassle of decorating the tree… where has all the joy gone? This year, celebrating seems like too much effort. With their only child off in Peru, they decide that just this once, they’ll skip the holidays. They spend their Christmas budget on a Caribbean cruise set to sail on December 25, and happily settle in for a restful holiday season free of rooftop snowmen and festive parties.
But the Kranks soon learn that their vacation from Christmas isn’t much of a vacation at all, and that skipping the holidays has consequences they didn’t bargain for…
A modern Christmas classic, Skipping Christmas is a charming and hilarious look at the mayhem and madness that have become ingrained in our holiday tradition.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham’s The Litigators.

Praise for Wishing for Wonderful –
Crosby has now become one of my favorite authors! I have read some of her other books like “Spare Change” and thought they were wonderful. This is completely in a different realm for Crosby and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it.
John and Eleanor met in high school and fell in love. Life happened and they were not able to be together at that time so they both married someone else. Their spouses pass away and when they finally spot each other while shopping, their romance blossoms again. The only thing standing in the way of their happily ever after is their children who need to realize the love in themselves before they can ever be happy.
The story is told from Cupid’s point of view and it is charming and funny. A great Christmas love story. – I. MansterRead an excerpt from Wishing for Wonderful Book discussion questions for Wishing for Wonderful
