5-B Poppy Lane by: Debbie Macomber

Title: 5-B Poppy Lane
Author: Debbie Macomber
Publisher: Harlequin
Format: ebook
Source: Purchased Barnes & Noble

Description:

Drop in at 5-B Poppy Lane, where you’ll get a chance to visit with Helen Shelton, her granddaughter Ruth and Ruth’s husband, Paul. They’ll offer you a cup of mulled cider and the story of how they met — and they’ll share Helen’s breathtaking adventures during the Second World War.

My Thoughts:
This was a great story mixing in military and Christmas.  We learn about how Ruth met her husband Paul and the obstacles they overcame to be together and while this was going on intermixed is the story of Helen Shelton and her battles during WWII including a previous marriage conspiring against the German's spending two years in a concentration camp and being rescued by her second husband Sam prior to them knowing what they were going to be two each other.

So much homeyness in this book and hints of romance it was such a refereshing change from reading mysteries lately!
