Book Review: "An Angel for Christmas" by Heather Graham
A snowy mountainside... A starry night... The makings of a miracle... Christmas has never brought out the best in the MacDougal family. Still, year after year they gather together in the Blue Ridge Mountains to try to make the season merry and bright. But this year is an especially strained one, with Shayne's impending divorce, Morwenna's slavis... more »h devotion to work and Bobby's reluctance to face what life has to offer. They've never felt less like a family. Then, in the midst of a snowy sibling shouting match, a mysterious stranger appears. He could be a criminal, a madman-or something far more unexpected. Despite their fears and the growing danger in the dark woods around them, the MacDougals take a leap of faith. But when another stranger arrives on the mountainside, they don't know which of them to believe. One of these men can't be trusted. And one is about to bring Christmas into their hearts.
I believe this is the first book I have read by this author.
This was a nice quick read. I loved the family dynamic - it wasn't the 'perfect' family - you got to know what quirks each of the family member has. Then you get to see how the author ties it all together to make it a great 'feel good' Christmas story.
There was a little suspense and a little romance - both not too heavy. The storyline kept moving enough where you didn't want to put the book down because you wanted to know what would happen next and how it would all tie in together.
I will definitely look for other books by this author.
