The Christmas Town By Donna VanLiere – Book Review #52
Well, I’ve completed my challenge and over a month early as well! The Christmas Town is the 8th book in this series and the 9th has recently been released.
The Christmas Town
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
Lauren Gabriel spent many years of her childhood in foster homes, wishing her mother would come back for her and be the family she needs. Now twenty-years-old, she still longs for a place that she can truly call home. Her work as a cashier is unfulfilling, and at Christmas it’s unbearable with the songs and carols and chatter of Christmas that she hears throughout the day.
When Lauren ends her shift one night, she finds herself driving aimlessly in order to avoid returning to her lonely apartment. And 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. Could this town and its people be the home she has always longed for?
I think this is probably one of my favourites of the series. I love the notes that Ben writes then drops them in their grocery bags while he’s packing them.
It’s lovely that everyone wants to go to the till where Ben works so they can get one of his special messages. They don’t care how long the line is, it’s worth the wait for them!
I’m now back to my thrillers, but I’m staying with the Christmas theme and reading The Advent Killer by Alistair Gunn.
