A Shoe Addict's Christmas by Beth Harbison came from St. Martin's Press.
With a woman locked in a department shoe store after hours and visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future, this sounds like it will be light and charming and full of Christmas spirit.
Roughneck Grace by Michael Perry came from LibraryThing Early Reviewers and Wisconsin Historical Society Press.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the other books I've read by Perry and look forward to this collection of brief essays.
