"Love Mimi Barbour, love her books. When you can read a book that within just a few words, you are brought right into the book. You feel, taste, see everything going on. Great story lines. Fantastic characters, fantastic plots, story lines like real life both honest folk and of crooks. Humor that will have you giggling then full on belly laugh. You may even shed a tear or two. All in all Mimi never disappoints." ~ Reviewed by Shirleen Miller

If you enjoy heartwarming Christmas romances, you will wile away a pleasant hour reading Christmas Runaway.
Here's the story of a lady, who has just dropped her child off at the airport so that he can go to Hawaii with some friends over Christmas. (Eyeroll (ER) 1). Even though there is a major snow storm she dilly dally's by going to the mall, goes to a movie, eats dinner in a restaurant with extra stops on the way, (ER 2). With all of that she has her dog in the car? (ER 3&4). I travel often, my dogs never go to the airport, they aren't allowed in most restaurants and they definitely are not welcome in a movie theatre.
So if we believe all of that, what harm is there in believing that, in the middle of a blinding snow storm that a driver would roll down a window so the dog could put his nose out. (ER 5). Worse the dog gets overexcited and makes the woman drive into a ditch. Instead of taking control of the animal she allows him out of the car without a leash! (ER 6 & 7 plus hands thrown up in the air). So off the dog runs, then the lady runs after the dog and they find a girl who has run away from her dad in the middle of a snowstorm, because he wouldn't let her go to a friend's house over Christmas. (Eyerolls not doing it anymore, gag reflex working though)
From that point on it just gets worse. The dialogue is "oh I am so sorry, it was all my fault", such saccharine sweetness is beyond what my stomach can handle. Throw in the runaway's father and you have a fast eye to eye connection romance with hints of promises of forever. Within hours of meeting each other.
So while the author can write a coherent if utterly implausible Pollyanna story. Please do not read this unless you have a dentist's appointment coming up. Because all of the coincidental sweetness might rot your teeth.
Mimi Barbour has written a charming Christmas story that will warm your heart. It's a quick read, which is perfect for the busy holiday season. I recommend Christmas Runaway to readers looking to get into the Christmas spirit this year!

Saccharine. This story is unbelievable and absurd. It has all the faults and fallacies of silly Romances. The only connection to Christmas is when it takes place. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Amazon Customer
