It’s Christmas in October! At least that’s what it feels like to me as I bring you my 3rd Christmas book review of the month. I’m ready for the holiday season. Are you?
Donna VanLiere’s, The Christmas Town is the 9th installment in her Christmas Hope series. There will be tears so get your hankies ready!
Lauren Gabriel spent many years of her childhood in foster homes. Now twenty-years-old, she longs for a place that she can truly call home. One night she finds herself driving aimlessly in order to avoid returning to her lonely apartment. When she witnesses a car accident she is suddenly pulled into the small town of Grandon, first as a witness but then as a volunteer for the annual fundraiser for Glory’s Place, a center for single mothers and families who need assistance.
I love, love, love stories where the right people are in the right place at the right time. The Christmas Town (this whole series really) is full of moments like these. They never fail to put a smile on my face and warm my heart!
“Miracles occur in the most unlikely places and in the most unusual ways. Sometimes, we just need to get out of the way and let them happen.”
As I’ve mentioned, The Christmas Town is the newest book in a continuing series. Some, but not all of the same characters make appearances in other books. You do not have to read the other books in the series to read this one but please do! These books give me the warm fuzzies. Do you know what I mean? This story and the others in the series are sure to put you in the holiday mood.
Although this book comes in at less than 250 pages it’s packed with depth, emotion and didn’t feel nearly long enough. Put yourself in the holiday mood by grabbing your copy of this book now!
I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley.
