This was such a great story that really warmed my heart. And though there were some tear-worthy moments, overall a great message of how you can have a do-over in life. It was a quick read for me because it had all the great elements I enjoy. A deep, caring story full of humor, hope and inspiration.
I’ve read many of Terri Blackstock’s books and enjoyed each and everyone. This one was different from any other of hers I’ve read. Usually drawn into romantic suspense and mystery, this was a Christmas story of love, both God’s and Callie’s.
Finn, a cab driver and ex-chef and restaurant owner, is pulled into the life of Callie, an octogenarian, by necessity because she needs a ride to see her doctor. Finn was easy to love. He really cared and went beyond his job requirements to take care of an eighty year old feisty, outspoken lady. I laughed every time Finn exaggerated Callie’s age and recalled her loud and mostly embarrassing comments. I felt for Sydney, the granddaughter, who was pulled both from her job and all its strenuous requirements and from her responsibilities and love toward her aging grandmother.
Some things in life are more important than others as they both find out.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.
