A very cute novella where Simeon Shepherd uses the song The 12 Days Of Christmas to show his true love, Anna, his heartfelt love.
The characters names come from the nativity story and each day is a twist on the old Christmas song, such as a (rifle) cartridge in a prickly pear cactus tree. Very clever.
A great addition is the devotion at the end explaining why Jesus came into the world as a baby. Much food for thought.
Excellent story and funny too!

The Twelve Days of Christmas get a romantic Texas twist!
Anna King has pledged her heart to Simeon Shepherd, but her father refuses to grant her hand to the young farmer. Simeon determines to be patient and earn David King's respect over time with hard work and evidence of his ability to provide. However, when a wealthy new suitor arrives in Bethlehem, Texas to woo Anna with her father's support, patience is no longer an option. Simeon has twelve days before Christmas to best his rival and prove once and for all that he is Anna's true love.
A fun, quirky read that is short enough to squeeze into even the busiest holiday schedule.
