This book spans both holidays and offers a gentle story about acceptance, kindness and the importance of learning to appreciate people for who God made them to be.
Eve Pickering and Chance Dawson both have secrets and family pasts that make them feel that they are failures in certain aspects of their lives. These secrets are heavy burdens on both of them and impact the way they view themselves and others.
In A Family for Christmas, Eve rescues an orphan boy named Leo and forms an unlikely alliance with Chance and an elderly town resident named Dotty. I enjoyed returning to Turnabout, Texas and reading about Chance's story. I also enjoyed getting to catch up with the other characters from the two previous books in this series. A Family for Christmas is well-written and can definitely be read as a stand-alone book. However, I am glad that I have read the two previous books and anxiously await the fourth in the series.
I was blessed to win this book in a contest on Petticoats and Pistols and was not required to write a review, but happily do so.
