About the book:

     Perfect for readers who want a heartwarming and hopeful Christmas story.

     Five women from different walks of life have become close friends through their book club—enjoying one another’s company even more than they enjoy the books. So when the leader of the book club unexpectedly passes away on the cusp of the Christmas season, the four remaining friends are stunned. They relief on Abby for inspiration and motivation. She was the glue that held them together, and they’re sure that without her the group can’t continue.

     When the group gathers “one last time” to open a bag Abby’s husband gives them, they find Abby had made each of them an angel ornament for Christmas, crafted especially for each woman and accompanied by a sweet and personal note. Inspired by their beloved friend, together Cassidy, Louisa, Grace, and Belinda decide to commit themselves to becoming Christmas Angels to others in need. Each woman will use her life situation and talents to reach out and help others in her own unique way—little knowing that her own life and her relationships will be changed forever.

     Fan favorite Melody Carlson is back with another touching Christmas story sure to grip readers’ hearts and perhaps inspire them to become Christmas Angels themselves.

My review:

     An absolutely delightful Christmas story!

     The cast of characters is wonderful. They are very different from each other, but each one is extremely well developed. Each of the four women who make up the book group goes on a personal journey of emotional growth after their mutual friend dies suddenly.

     I thoroughly enjoyed the way they worked together to figure out what they could do to honor their friend’s memory. I was fascinated by the very special projects that they became involved in. Four very different projects that were tailor made for each of them.

     I love Melody’s Christmas stories. They are so uplifting and encouraging. I don’t think you can go wrong in spending a few hours reading this wonderful story. I’m highly recommending it and giving it a 5 star rating.
