Catching Christmas review and giveaway!
This Year, Christmas Comes Just in Time
As a first-year law associate, Sydney Batson knows she will be updating her resume by New Year’s if she loses her current court case. So when her grandmother gets inexplicably ill while she’s in court, Sydney arranges for a cab to get her to the clinic.
The last thing cab driver Finn Parrish wants is to be saddled with a wheelchair-bound old lady with dementia. But because Miss Callie reminds him of his own mother, whom he failed miserably in her last days, he can’t say no when she keeps calling him for rides. Once a successful gourmet chef, Finn’s biggest concern now is making his rent, but half the time Callie doesn’t remember to pay him. And as she starts to feel better, she leads him on wild goose chases to find a Christmas date for her granddaughter.
When Finn meets Sydney, he’s quite sure that she’s never needed help finding a date. Does Miss Callie have an ulterior motive, or is this just a mission driven by delusions? He’s willing to do whatever he can to help fulfill Callie’s Christmas wish. He just never expected to be a vital part of it.
My thoughts: This was a sweet Christmas story to pick up! I enjoyed getting to know the characters, who have been tested through difficult circumstances that have left Miss Callie turning to a soft hearted taxi driver for help to prepare for Christmas. Finn is a delightful curmudgeon who is just wanting to scrape by after watching his dreams crash and burn. Sydney is stuck in a cycle of working hard to keep her job and juggle taking care of her elderly grandmother. When their lives collide before Christmas, the results surprise them both.
I enjoyed this story and would totally read it anytime of the year, not just during the Christmas season.
I received this book through Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
