The Christmas Light by Donna VanLiere



I love a good fluffy Christmas tale about as much as anyone, but while this is certainly holding a fair amount of sweetness, I did not find it memorable. An entertaining and cute story, but the characters weren't much beyond their own individual tragedies and dramas.

            A various cast that’s dealing with their own uncertain futures and become involved in the
somewhat chaotic Christmas pageant put on by two charming older women. The pageant goes on
despite crazy children and the characters, well, they just sort talk about their lives with each
other.

            The cover description left few surprises about how things will end. Predictable and an easy read. You could read it with your eyes closed. VanLiere managed to pull together a lot of loose ends and wrap them up in a nice little bow by the end of the story. If you need a quick read without too much thinking, The Christmas Light fits the bill, but not memorable one.

            I received copy of eBook from St Martin’s Press through Net Galley for my review.
