      This was my first introduction to Melody Carlson. I must say that I really enjoy her style of writing, if her books are all written like this one. When I first started this book, I thought this would be a cute little store that sold Christmas items and that had a happy feel inside of it. I was surprised when it wasn't what I thought it was! (The picture on the front of the book also helped me form my opinion about a cute little shop!)

      The Christmas Shoppe is a store that looks like a place no one would want to visit. However, when people went in there, they came out with something far more important than they could ever imagine. Matlida has a way about her that seems to teach those who enter into her shop what the meaning of Christmas really is.

      This book is a short little book, but it's a great Christmas read. I would definitely recommend this book as a stocking stuffer or a book for that friend of yours who loves to read!

      This book is one of the rare books that every member in my family loved. It is just such a heart warming read and it has several good lessons nicely written in it including ones on remembering the true meaning of Christmas and how love can conquer all. I really enjoyed this book and would totally recommend it!

      The Christmas Shoppe.....by Melody Carlson

      An old historic building is up for sale along the towns shopping stores and the new stranger in town purchases it. The town people are suspicious of Matilda Honeycutt because she is opening a new store but the only thing they see that she has is old junk that no one would want. This causes quite a stir among the townspeople and they get together to see what they can do about running her out of town before she ruins all of their Christmas business.

      Matilda is a happy person, full of life and a seemingly love for the people of Parrish Springs. While the people are meeting and plotting to run her out of town she is having a good old time fixing up her new purchased building for her Christmas Shoppe. She has something for everyone in the little town of Parrish Springs in her Christmas Shoppe but they just don't know it yet.

      When the Shoppe opens and the people start coming in to check it out, Matilda encourages them to find the one thing in the Shoppe that is there just for them. At first they think she is crazy, but then it happens. And they leave the Shoppe a completely different person. You've just gotta read this fantastic book to see what each person finds that changes their life.

      First of all, I am a huge Melody Carlson fan. I love her books and this one is just as awesome as her others. This story is different than any I have read and I was just fascinated reading it. What a wonderful story to help us remember the love of Christmas. God sent us His Son because He loved us so much. And even though this book wasn't preachy nor did it quote scripture, it shows the love Christmas should be in all of our hearts. This book is well worth reading, so grab a copy, read it and pass it around during the Holidays for others to enjoy!

      The bookworms on your gift list will enjoy this refreshing, heartwarming story with a sprinkle of romance. It is a light, easy read. Definitely a book to read to "get away from it all" if a vacation is not on the horizon.

      If you believe in Christmas angels then this book is for you! Matilda is a character in <em>The Christmas Shoppe.</em> She is an eccentric woman with some very unselfish goals as she sowed seeds of love, healing and happiness out over the people living in the town of Parrish.

      I loved the story's message, which from my perspective seems three-fold:

      1. Remember the true meaning of Christmas.

      2. Don't allow old wounds to ruin your present and future life.

      3. Allow love to conquer all.

      The Christmas Shoppe receives two thumbs up for me! I am even letting my daughters read this one! :-) Oh and I did not shed one tear.....usually the tears flow in stories like this!
