Newsy Tuesday: #FiveSibes Book Nook Time! "Alaskan Holiday" by Debbie Macomber!


What is FiveSibesMom reading?

In addition to being a writer, I love to read! No surprise there! And romances, action/romances, and westerns have always been my favorite genres to read and write!  I have a slew of favorite authors and genres of books in my library, but one of my all-time favorite authors is Debbie Macomber, also known as "the official storyteller of Christmas!" I'm such a fangirl of her books, especially any one on Christmas, as well as her TV Christmas movies, the book series and TV series "Cedar Cove" that aired on Hallmark Channel. Her books are sweet, slice of life stories that always leave me feeling the warm and fuzzies! So, when I heard her new holiday book, Alaskan Holiday, was just released, I immediately pre-ordered it! And Northern Breed dog lovers, check out that pretty awesome cover design! I am so excited to now have this book in my hot little hands and am, of course, enjoying the story. 


Just a few books from my Debbie Macomber collection!

Set in Alaska, the story evolves around Josie, who leaves Seattle for a summer sous chef position at a lakeside lodge in Alaska, and meets Palmer, a master swordsmith! Already this book sounds very interesting! You know she "cooked" up a good story here. And my dear FiveSibes readers, once again Ms. Macomber does not disappoint! Alaskan Holiday is a wonderful holiday present for your favorite reader, or a great gift for yourself! For me, there is no better way to get myself into the spirit of the holiday season than to curl up with my Huskies and a good book like Alaskan Holiday (or any of her other Christmas books)!



Note: I was not compensated for this post. I purchased the book and am reviewing it because I am a fan of the author and I loved this book and thought some of you, my dear readers, would too! Plus, there is that pretty cover, isn't it?! But, as an Amazon affiliate, I am including a link to order the book if you'd like, and as such, I will receive a tiny compensation *with no extra cost to you* to help with the work on keeping this blog running with current news, reviews, fun & tips! Thanks!







If you missed her guest appearance on Home&Family on 
Hallmark Channel, check it out HERE!




Happy Birthday, Debbie Macomber!

Ms. Macomber just celebrated her birthday on October 22, for which my FiveSibes and I shared the below video card on Twitter...and the icing on the cake was when I received a lovely message back! I'm still fangirling!




If you have never read a Debbie Macomber book, definitely add them to your list of "must reads" starting with
Alaksan Holiday!

We here at FiveSibes give Alaskan Holiday an enthusiastic
 4 out of 4-Paws Up Rating!




Many of you may, or many not know, I also love to cook, and especially bake. And, I also have been collecting cookbooks for over (gulp) 40 years! Did you know that Debbie Macomber, not only writes about characters with real careers in today's world, but in Alaskan Holiday her lead female character, Josie, is a chef! Here is a bit of trivia...did you know she has also published cookbooks, including ones that have recipes from her series, Cedar Cove (which, by the way, I loved the TV series, too)! And what is a holiday season without some tasty holiday desserts and dishes? Here's some links to her cookbooks you know I have in my collection!











So, whip up a tasty treat, snuggle with your pet in front of a cozy fire (or faux fire), and read Alaskan Holiday, (or watch one of Debbie Macomber's Christmas movies), and bring on the holidays!


I'm coming Wolfie! Take care of my book until I get the treats!
