Sweet Read

Catching Christmas by Terri Blackstock is a Christmas short story. Sydney Batson is a first-year law associate with a pressing court case. So, when her grandmother needs to go to the doctor, she arranges for a cab to take her, since she can’t leave court. Flynn Parrish responds to a call never expecting to pick up a sick, little old lady with dementia. As Flynn drives Carrie around on her errands he begins to care about her. Carrie’s greatest Christmas wish is for her granddaughter to be happy. This was such a sweet story. The only draw back was that it was written in first person; and skipped back and forth between Sydney and Flynn too often. The story-line caught your attention and held it throughout. Never forget the people in your life. Take care of them, spend time with them. Just be there for them. One day you may find that they are no longer here on earth and you don’t want to have any regrets. Make each day count. I received this book from Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review.

Delightful Christmas Read

Catching Christmas by Terri Blackstock is flat out delightful. Having read & enjoyed this author's work before I was eager to read this and am so glad I did. Such a touching and yet often hilarious story. I loved the dry-humored sarcasm of Finn and the subsequent softening of his heart as he escorts the Callie around town for her various errands and becomes entangled in her life. The depth of the characters and their emotions resonates with the reader--sorrow, regret, stress, compassion, fear. Along with the sweet hint of a romance in this charming Christmas story, the author has woven a subtle thread of faith that is comforting and inspiring. One of the characters says "I feel like I'm getting to know Callie's Jesus a little better, even though I'm doing all the talking. But he speaks volumes in the way he listens." I love that...what a message to people at Christmas, a time that can be lonely and sad for many folks, that there is a God who cares and listens. Loved this story and will be recommending it to reader friends and family. I received a complimentary copy of this book via CelebrateLit. A favorable review was not required and opinions are my own. This review is part of a CelebrateLit blog tour.
