My review:
Imagine it, your thirty three years old, living on the family farm in the middle of Oklahoma, raising hogs, and wondering if Mr. Right will ever come along.  Wondering if you will ever follow your dream and the music and become a Deejay?  That was where Franny Martin was, in the middle of Oklahoma, singing along with her radio, when a dreamy young man seemed to drop out of the sky and into her life.  Not just any young man, a rich young man, who offers to buy her farm, what she doesn't count on it, is the fact that the purchase of her farm will cost her more than the family farm, she will loose her heart to this young man also.
I enjoyed this book, loved the music references.  Franny was a girl way ahead of her time, for her area, but she was passionate about everything she believed in.  The things hard to read in this book was the prejudice that abounded in the area she lived and in the city also.  It was hard to read the story of the loss of Franny's parents and their handyman.  Over all I would rate this book with four stars, a quick holiday read.  254 pages  US $14.99 4 stars.

About A Merry Little Christmas: 
Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds.
Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who's preparing to spend the holidays alone...again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny's farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she's more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city.

As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart-that sometimes love comes when you're least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?
