FIRST Wildcard Blog Tour: The Christmas Kitchen by Tammy Maltby

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

The Christmas Kitchen


Howard Books (October 6, 2009)


This is another book that didn't arrive at my house ... lost in the mail.  I was really looking forward to reading it, so I am disappointed.   After getting a peek inside the book via the link provided below, I'm even more disappointed.  This book is full of great recipes and ideas to make the Christmas holiday special and delicious!  Be sure to scroll down and take a look inside the book yourself.  (Note:  It begins with several blank pages.  I found it worked best if I switched to the two-page view, and let the page load completely before hitting the forward arrow again.  Hit it two times on 2-page version to get past the blank pages.)


***Special thanks to Jennifer Willingham of Simon and Schuster for sending me a review copy.***

  1. Won't let me see. It says, "page left intentionally blank".

  2. Momofsix,


    If you use the drop-down menu in the right side, or enter 1 into the page number box, it will take you into the book. I think there are several pages left blank in a row, but am not completely sure how many. I typed in 1 at the top, and it jumped ahead to page 7. I'll add that into my post.

  3. This is at least the second book which was lost in the mail for you, isn't it? And wasn't the other also a FIRST book? I hope it comes in the mail soon! Maybe it just got buried in a pile somewhere and you'll receive it soon. Let us know how you liked it after it does arrive. :)

  4. Yes it is. WIth FIRST, you email the publishers and they ship it out to you. So, room for error if you type your address wrong, or they enter it into the computers wrong. It wasn't the same publishing company, though.
