about the book...
I have to admit that I love Christmas so much that I start humming Christmas tunes in July, much to my family's chagrin; so, when I saw that this latest book from Everson was Christmas themed, I was indeed ready to dive in! "God Bless Us Every One" is just what you are looking for to put you in the mood for Christmas, as the story will surely warm your heart with its themes of forgiveness and grace. I quite like the main character, Charlie, who instantly earned my sympathy as she loses her job and has to return home feeling unsettled as to what the future holds. I love how the author throws in lots of twists and turns that end up bringing so much good out of that difficult experience, showcasing the Biblical truth that God can bring good out of the bad! Readers who love romance will appreciate the relationship that blossoms between Charlie and Dustin, and the author uses just the right touch in setting the scene between them. The dialogue between them is witty and moved the story forward well, often in a fun manner. But perhaps the scenes I most enjoyed in the story are those between Charlie and her father, and I think that readers will really be able to relate to the struggles in their relationship and find inspiration in how they move forward. Perhaps things resolve a bit too easily, but for a Christmas-themed novella I would expect nothing less! I closed the final pages of this book with a smile on my face, and wishing that I didn't have to wait 3 more months for Christmas to arrive!
Eva Marie Everson has added yet another solid book to her repertoire, and I encourage you to grab a copy for yourself to get your mind on the wonderful holiday that lies ahead. I award this book a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
