Title: The Christmas Bus
Author: Melody Carlson
The Blurb: The people of ChristmasValley always celebrate Christmas to the fullest extent. The mayor plays Santa, every business is holiday themed, and there’s a nativity for the kids each Christmas Eve. This town knows Christmas. But this year nothing goes according to plan. Shepherd’s Inn is full of strangers, Mad Myrtle is causing problems, and a young couple with a baby due any minute rolls in to the middle of town in their Partridge Family-style bus. It’s hardly the holiday ChristmasValley wanted–but it may be just what they need.
My Thoughts: I am starting to get into the swing of my annual orgy of Christmas themed reading. THE CHRISTMAS BUS is sweet, sappy and totally fluffy read which grabbed me from the first page and kept me engrossed until the ‘Happily ever after’ at the end. I knew how the story was going to go – a few days before Christmas, no room at the Inn and a young couple with a baby due any tick of the clock – but you know what? It didn’t matter – it was still a lovely read with enough conflict to be resolved to keep the story from sinking into a pink fur lined hole. The book is Christian fiction so there is a biblical message as well – but Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas if Christ wasn’t there. A quick Christmas read, it was fun and inspiring.
Rating: B – A really, really good read
