REVIEW: If you are looking for the perfect Christmas story to put you in the mood or to just give you the warm fuzzies, this is the book I recommend for you. A Time Travel Christmas by Karen McQuestion. It is a novella and makes for a nice evening spent in front of the fire with a nice read. What more could you ask for this time of year except for a warm drink and a cosy throw?
This is a time-travel story. I am not a huge fan of the genre but, I’ve come to realize that anything Karen McQuestion writes, I’m gonna love. She is very talented and writes in many different genres with ease. I absolutely love this story. It takes place in the present and back in 1957. I was a toddler in 1957 and enjoyed the picture she painted of the time period.
I loved the few characters that there were. There weren’t many but, each of them are special in their own way. The town Doctor plays Santa and her taxi driver is the same person in both time periods although his car is not the same. Her grandmother is the same and she gets to meet her great grandparents. How special is that?
I really liked this book and wish that it could have gone of longer than it did but, it was really just perfect as it was. The book comes is up for pre-order and comes out the day after Thanksgiving. You’ll be ready to put your feet up and enjoy some relaxing time. Go ahead and order it now and it will be waiting for you in your inbox.
