A Preview & Exclusive Slideshow of A Very Merry Holiday Movie Guide, by Rachel McMillan, and illustrated by Laura Leigh Bean

A Very Merry Holiday Movie Guide Cover 2020I am a true movie geek and confess to having spent a good portion of my free time since childhood in a movie theater or glued to the TV screen. I adore everything from the Golden Age of Hollywood classics to modern creations.

Now that we can stream just about any movie ever made through pay for view or subscription services, our options can be overwhelming. That is why I enjoy movie guides to help curate my choices. When I learned that historical mystery and fiction author Rachel McMillan shared my passion for movies and was publishing, A Very Merry Holiday Movie Guide, I was over the moon with joy!

Recently, holiday movies created by TV channels like Hallmark® have become so abundant that they devote weeks and months of solid Christmas themed movies in their schedule to fill the addiction that they helped to create. A Very Merry Holiday Movie Guide helps us whittle down the possibilities into a reasonable mob of binge-able viewing.

This beautifully illustrated hardcover edition includes a carefully curated selection of the best “Must-See, Made-for-TV Movie Viewing Lists.” Not only does it share themed lists of some of McMillan’s favorite holiday movies, it includes party ideas and food recipes to make in celebration of the season while watching the movies.

I am pleased to present additional info on this charming guide including an exclusive slideshow from the publisher of illustrator Laura Leigh Bean’s artwork. Enjoy!
