Starla's Christmas Conundrum Review and Giveaway!

In the greatest conflict of her life, can she figure out who to trust?

Starla Devaroux is at the peak of her music career. Life as a popular Christian music artist is good. This Christmas she finds herself at the crossroads of several life-altering choices. It's quite a conundrum; the path she takes this time will not only define her future but alter the lives of others as well.

"It was charming and romantic, and I want to marry Mason, lol."

"It is a beautiful story of how we can be deceived, but God will show us the truth if we remain open to it. I love the characters and dialogue."

"The main characters were very likable, I could really put myself in Starla's shoes."

My thoughts: I have often thought that it would be both a blessing and a curse to be famous, especially if you trying to use your talents for the Lord and yet constantly feeling pulled in other directions. I like that Starla realizes that something is off with her relationship with the Lord, which causes her to step back from her music career for the Christmas season. I enjoyed getting to know her and Mason as their relationship takes off! This is a delightful read, no matter when you pick it up: in the middle of a heat wave or during the Christmas season!
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.

More from Carol
This book started off in an anthology and now is its own ebook. Christmas and romance go well together, and so I set forth to create a book that could meet that challenge. When I started thinking about writing this, it made me want to use one of my favorite locations as the main setting for this book. When you read it, I hope you will feel like you had a mini-trip to that area. (It’s beautiful there!) I also wanted to include writing about things that I’m very involved in or know a great deal about. Music is one of those things. I hope you enjoy Starla and Mason’s story and the things that God brought about in their lives in this book.
