Find out in The Winter of Candy Canes by Debbie Viguie and thus review concludes my final book in the Sweet Seasons Series.
When I first started reading The Winter of Candy Canes, this being my first Sweet Seasons book, I thought it would be a super quick read and something I could speed-read my way through. I ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would! Candace is a fun, interesting character, and someone I would definitely have identified with as a teen. Well, except that I didn't start dating until I was in my 20's and wasn't near as independent as she is. I think she's someone I would have liked to be more like, though. ;-) She has the coolest job ever - she works at a theme park! In this book, the park has a Christmas theme and Candace is one of Santa's elves. Sounds fun, doesn't it? She thinks so, too, and can't understand why there are so many ominous looks or why she gets hazard pay. But she'll soon find out why the job is considered hazardous...The author has worked at both Knott's Berry Farm and Disneyland, so she totally knows her stuff when it comes to amusement parks! This made Candace's adventures at the theme park completely engrossing to me - it made me wish I had had such a cool job when I was a teenager!The Winter of Candy Canes is a light, enjoyable read, and one I would definitely recommend for young teen girls. Although it takes place during Christmastime, it's a book that can be enjoyed anytime. The fact that this series is seasonal just adds to the fun. I'm interested enough to want to read the first two books in this series and see what I missed!
Reading this yummy book is an enjoyably sweet treat. It's book three of the Sweet Seasons Novel series, but it can be easily read and appreciated on its own. The story grabs the heart of teens as two high school teenagers, Candice and Tamara--best friends solve problems as only teens can. The characters are slightly flawed and therefore, quite believable. The protagonist is the leader of a Bible study at her church. There's school, parents, part-time jobs, and shopping that fill their busy schedules. Boys play a prominent part in their lives, but it's clean--no sex is even hinted. The author has teen dialogue down pat.Parents, teachers, and employers are respected; how refreshing! There's a bit of romance, a time of tension between two opposing viewpoints, a sad scene that causes the need for a tissue, and a delightful ending. The real meaning of Christmas is covered. If you have a teenager or know one, this teen fiction is a good idea for them! I'm passing my copy along to my granddaughter.
