This is a Christmas story about finding out what really matters in life. Like a lot of Christmas stories our characters need some help. Not in a Dickens sort of way. Both characters are good people but they need some perspective which will come there way. This was much shorter than I had expected. The chapters are very short so the book moves quickly. The characters may have been too good which precluded a longer misunderstanding of circumstances which could have been more fun to read. There was not much fun bantering between Sydney and Finn. There’s not a lot of comic effect here. This book is more drama. While it was not what I expected it certainly was a sweet story.
Sydney is an overworked first year attorney facing an impossible case. Finn is a former chef turned cab driver who lives with lots of regrets. The two are brought together by Sydney’s adorable grandmother, Callie Beecher. Callie may be ill and not always in the present, but she does know a lot about love and faith. As Sydney and Finn wrestle over Callie’s care, they learn just what is important in life.
I really liked Catching Christmas. Filled with laugh out loud scenes and poignant moments, this story is true to life — there are plenty of people in this world struggling to make sense of missed opportunities, life-changing mistakes, and the need to connect with others. Callie is the best of characters. She epitomizes the impact a person of faith can have on those around her. The action takes place in the days leading up to Christmas, and the reader can feel Callie’s urgency to beat the deadline for bringing happiness into her granddaughter’s life. Finn and Sydney are very relatable in their disconnected lives. Catching Christmas is a great reminder of what is really important. A fast-paced read, you’ll finish this book in no time, but be prepared for a bit of sorrow in leaving this wonderful story.
Each of three people are experiencing very trying times in their lives and each of them feels very alone. One of them is fighting a losing battle, one is fighting things from the past and one is fighting death by making big plans for Christmas and beyond! These three characters will catch your heart and make this an unforgettable Christmas book!
Blackstock is at her best weaving a story of broken, hurting people allowing them to meet, have conflicts, experience growth in themselves and as a group. It is a story of past failures, wrong choices and most of all redemption and love. It’s always a blessed Christmas Gift to find LOVE in the most unexpected places with the most unexpected people! Treat yourself to the gift of Catching Christmas!
🚕 Enter Finn, a grumpy and irritable ex-chef cabbie, ends up being saddled with a wheelchair bound old lady with dementia who has him driving all over the city. Callie is a cute little old lady who lost her filter years ago. Finn just wants to pay his rent, Callie just wants to find her granddaughter a date, specifically in time for Christmas.
🚕 Callie begins to remind him of his own mother and after meeting Sydney for the first time, not the smoothest introduction, his life is changing and he doesn't even know it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It made me smile, made me sad, made me want to slap some sense into Finn toward the end. It did get a little biblical at the very end, mostly in the After Thought so I mainly skipped that part. Not because I have an issue with biblical topics, I do believe, but just too much for ME. Overall, 4 🌟

The plot is quite ridiculous at times which makes it funny, though I wonder whether a taxi driver really would get that involved with one of his customers!
There were some really sad moments in the story as well. The ending was a little longer than I was expecting
Both tears and laughter in a good story.
