An Endless Christmas - Cynthia Ruchti


3 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster.

Christmas takes a very different turn when the guests of honor break up instead of announcing their engagement. Trapped with his family, they learn that love looks different than either imagined. Both in their eighties, Dodie and Wilson Binder celebrate every Christmas as if it were their last. This year, their grandson Micah is planning to ask his girlfriend, Katie, to marry him so they can celebrate with the whole family. But things go very wrong when she says, “no.” Now they are stuck. Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster. But sometimes too much is just enough. Especially when it’s Christmas.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Drawing from 33 years of on-air radio ministry, Cynthia Ruchti tells stories of hope-that-glows-in-the-dark through her novels and novellas, nonfiction books and devotionals, and speaking for women's and writers' events. Her books have been recognized by Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Awards, Selah Awards, the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, Christian Retailing's BEST Awards, and Carol Award nominations, among other honors, including a Family Fiction Readers' Choice Award. She and her plot-tweaking husband live in Pittsville, Wisconsin, not far from their three children and five grandchildren.

MY THOUGHTS - 
My first Christmas book of the season! This was a sweet enjoyable read. Unfortunately though it was also very slow for me. I kind of felt like I was an uninvited guest crashing their Christmas week and didn't know anyone.

The character development was pretty good. I just really didn't care for Katie much. She was a real "Debbie downer" for me, while all the other characters were overly happy and optimistic so the contrast was almost too much to take. On the other hand I did like Micah. He seemed very level headed, kind, sweet (but not over-the-too) and never gave up.

Not a bad one for my first Christmas one of the year. This was my second book by Cynthia. The first being "As Waters Gone By", which I loved! Read my review - HERE.

Thank you Litfuse for sending me this book for my honest review.
