MY THOUGHTS - Book 6 of my holiday reading.
A very sweet, heartwarming Christian Christmas story. This is a quick read, one that can be easily be read in one day, and you will want to do just that.

Great character development. All the characters were very likeable, even Zam, Susie's teenage son. Actually Zam was my favorite character. I really liked him, great kid! He was very sweet and respectable to his mother. I also really liked Ty - he knew just the right amount of push and stand back to get to Susie's heart. 

Now, some christian fiction is light on the christian - this one is heavy on the christian. There are Bible verses and mentions of faith and God all throughout the book. I don't mind this and even like it because I am a christian. But some people might not like it because they would think it is too "preachy", it depends on how you like your books.

If you are looking for a nice clean Christmas romance rich with christian values - this is the one!

I had never heard of this author but she sure has a lot of books out there. I would mind reading another one!
