We begin with our "original" characters, father and son duo, Roy and Steven. This year, for the first time in a great while, Steven's brother Bernard (Bernie) is coming up with his family: wife, Marlene, and daughter, Emily. In order to make sure that they have plenty of space, Steven rents out the light keeper's former quarters on Point No Point. Alongside the apartment they are in, the other half of the duplex contains the erratically run Lighthouse Museum.
It doesn't take long before supernatural events begin manifesting themselves in horrific ways, and danger seems to follow their every move.
This book had everything you could need to wet your feet in the River series without initially having to go back and read each and every volume (although you may want to after reading this tale!).
Roy and Steven are true to their nature (for those that are further into the series), and I really enjoyed having a look into the "other side" of their family, in order to contrast the two brothers' attitudes and beliefs.
The character of Steven's niece, Emily, was also done very well, and I am hoping to see her return to another novel later down the road.
I thought nostalgia was an apt description because the main character is trying to reclaim a sense of family unity and togetherness at the holidays that he remembered from past years.
What I enjoyed most about this book is that the paranormal has been intertwined into the "normal" flawlessly. It wasn't depicted as a single, huge paranormal event that occurred on Christmas day, but rather it was a series of interconnected paranormal events that occurred over several days and that involved others to varying degrees (very similar to those experiences in real life). Every facet of people's feelings regarding the paranormal are depicted: the unbelievers, the deniers, the "I came to believe because it happened to me", the "If I don't admit it, it isn't true, and if it's not true, it can't be happening", as well as the more experienced. There are not expert characters. Even the experienced characters admit they don't always know the answers and that makes them more believable and likable.

A fast paced supernatural and freaky story.
My only grip is that it was shorter than his other books.Read more
