Reid’s wife left him when their son was still an infant, and he avoids both attachments and God. However, when his son, now five-years-old, quickly takes a liking to Melody, they’re drawn together. Can two wounded people find the answers they need with each other, or will they just be left with deeper wounds than ever before?
This book had a lot of grammatical errors, and I was very surprised to see an editor listed in the credits. There was head hopping; and misused words, like “wear” for “where” and “their” for “there.” Nominative pronouns came where objective ones were needed, like in “between my mom and I” and “for Michael and I.” The word southern wasn’t capitalized in terms like “Southern accent.” In addition, penguins are found at the South Pole and not the North Pole. Yet, I found the story interesting, and I think content outweighs mechanics in most cases. Therefore, I gave the novel 4.5 stars, which rounded up to a five.
Melody, the main character, is grieving the death of her father on Christmas Eve, 2 years past. Reid, the male lead, is grieving the abandonment of his wife from almost 5 years ago. His exuberant, pre-K son introduces these 2 heart weary souls and literary therapy begins. Grief during the holidays is serious and effects far more people than we imagine. This topic is handled gently and in a very realistic manner without being clinical.
The character development is good, for a novella. The young boy will have you charmed and laughing. All the other folks are comfortable and familiar; people you’d like to visit again on future trips to town. The romance is sweet and gentle without any sexual content and there’s no violence or foul language. “Melody’s Christmas” is good writing and great entertainment...enjoy.
