The Christmas Angel Project

GIVEAWAY

CARLSON, MELODY
THE CHRISTMAS ANGEL PROJECT

Abby Wentworth is the glue that holds her book club together. So when she unexpectedly passes away on the cusp of the Christmas season, the rest of the women in the group are stunned, saddened, and sure that, without her, the group can't continue.

They gather "one last time" to open gifts Abby left behind, little knowing how it will change each of their lives -- forever.

My Review:

A short novel packed with the true meaning of Christmas -- even if it doesn't look that way at the beginning. The Christmas Angel Project has a gloomy start which sharply contrasts with the feel-good uplifting ending. Four women at personal crossroads are crushed when a dear friend dies unexpectedly. Cassidy, Grace, Belinda and Louisa are all facing challenging Christmases and the future looks bleak without Abby's supportive listening ear and gentle understanding to help them through. What follows is a touching story that transforms not only this diverse group of women but the reader as well. And there's even a touch or two of sweet romance! The perfect read to direct your focus to what really matters this special season...and throughout the whole year.

  1. I read a book not too long ago with a similar theme and thoroughly enjoyed it! An emotional roller coaster ride that had me laughing & crying at the same time :-) This one sounds just as good!
