Happy Holidays with Bing and Frank

Christmastime is my favorite time of the year and wouldn’t be complete without classic Christmas music. I grew up listening to an abundance of music from the 30s, 40s, and 50s thanks to my grandparents. Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby remain two of my personal favorites.

The book opens with Maggie, mother of two daughters (Katie and Rosie) who are now both in their twenties and living on their own. Maggie sort of has some empty nest syndrome because she’s spent most of her life making a home for her family, including her husband Nick, but so much has changed. It’s Christmas, Maggie’s favorite time of year, and she can’t wait to decorate their home in England (Honeysuckle Cottage) for their annual family celebration. She expects both girls to come home for Christmas. After a phone call brings the announcement of a Christmas wedding (in Aspen, Colorado), Maggie begins to think this might be the worst Christmas ever.
