25 Day ‘Til Christmas was my first holiday read of the season! This month being dedicated to as many holiday reads as I can power through before year end. Consider Saturday Nite Reader your one stop shop for holiday reads this year 😉
What does my holiday TBR look like you ask:
Okay, now back to the book review you have all been anxiously awaiting…
For fans of A Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life. I whipped through this book in a day. It is not a cheery, sugar cookie read. It’s more in line with It’s a Wonderful Life, where you watch and hope for goodness to come back to Kate, and come fast.
Young widow Kate cannot catch a break, whether its working for a terrible company, dealing with the mean moms at her son’s school, dealing with the school admin who make her son feel less than welcome, and missing her husband terribly during a time of year she used to love the most. Daniel is grieving the loss of his sister and the thought of Kate – whom he has yearned from a far – brings him joy when most things do not. Will these lonely souls bring back the holiday spirit for each other?
It counts down until Christmas, but the holiday is not really the focal point. It’s more about the challenges and setbacks Kate keeps experiencing while trying to keep Christmas – and life in general – merry for her son, Jack. It would be a Lifetime movie versus Hallmark.
I have to say that I adore the book cover illustrated by Nathan Burton!
Do you have any holiday reads on your TBR this month? Have you read this one?! Do tell!
