I think I have found a new favorite Author for 2016, and not just any Author, but a Christian Author!! I was blown away as I read this marvelous story of life, love, and the word of GOD!! This story put joy into my heart and soul as I kept reading. I loved how the Author entwined the word of GOD into the story, and even though, I know the story, it made me just as excited as it did Chesney. I was also in awe at the reminder that we all are broken and we need GOD in our lives just as much now as we ever did in previous years and help us put our 'Pieces' back together. This amazing story shined a new light for me at the end of my dark tunnel that I have recently found myself in. This story has renewed my HOPE once again. This story is a beacon to believers and non-believers alike. If you are not a believer, this miracle story will change your life and make you think about what you believe and don't believe. I am very excited to read more by this author and I highly recommend this to all to read.
The synopsis of the book didn't sound that engaging to me, but I had read other novels by Cathy Bryant and really enjoyed them, so I decided to give this one a try. I wasn't disappointed. This is a well-written story filled with messages from the heart. It read much quicker than I expected, and I loved it.
One day when Peri arrived to work, her uncle was not yet there, and the store was almost due to open. She was met by a ski-masked bully with a gun. After many terrifying moments in which she watched two men smash the cases and steal valuable, and in some cases priceless pieces of jewelry, she looked up and saw a man with a purple tie outside the door. When he realized what was occurring, he called the police and quickly snapped pictures of the two men. When the police showed up at the front door, the thieves ran out the back. Minutes later, the police found Uncle Marty, badly beaten and left on the ground behind the store.
Life spiraled out of control when they broke into her home. Purple-tie man Chris and his young daughter Maggie introduced themselves to Peri, then Chris met and waited with Peri and Amee at the hospital. He gave her a ride home as her car and took her back to work the next day. As Uncle Marty healed, Peri took over more responsibility in the shop with the help of the staff and romance began to sweeten Peri and Chris’ life. Chris had been divorced when his ex-wife walked out one day without their daughter and didn’t come back; Peri’s husband had died suddenly of a congenital heart defect. They got to know each other well as Christmas approached. Chris helped as much as possible until the shop repairs were complete and Peri replaced her license and ID, stolen during the break-in.
The plot had more than one layer – to find the thieves who beat up Marty, generate sales with what was left to get through the holiday and replace stock, and the possibility of romance between Peri and Chris. It was detailed and beautifully written, leaving no loose ends. There were unexpected plot twists, one that was stunning in the manner of how the Lord works and another regarding little Maggie. This story grabbed my heart and didn’t let go until the end which, was very satisfying.
I genuinely liked Peri and Amee, Chris and Maggie, and the staff at Keaton’s. The men and women were very likable, and I appreciated that each character was concerned about the other being a Christian. Not only do Amee and Peri complement each other when sharing their strengths and weaknesses, Peri and Chris do, as well. I would love to see them in them in their own series.
This is a great read; I highly recommend it to those who enjoy sweet Christmas romance coupled with suspense and fear of more treachery from the crooks. Ladies of any age, even older teens, will enjoy Jan Elder’s latest novella. While it has a Christmas setting, I believe it will be appreciated at any time of year, even as a beach read in the heat of the summer when snow sounds like a blessing!
I purchased this novella myself. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review.
