My First 2018 Christmas Book Review!
When I walk into stores and see Christmas displays before Halloween I shake my head. But when I had the opportunity to review Camron Wright's new book, Christmas by Accident, I couldn't pass it up, even though it's mid-October!
Carter is an insurance adjuster who loves the written word and doesn't have much love for Christmas. He's got a bit of sass in him and when he meets Abby, a woman who loves everything about Christmas, well, the sparks begin to fly. But are their differences just too big to overcome?
I love how the author used humor in this story to really draw the main characters together. There were definitely some laugh out loud moments! This is more than just an afternoon romance, though. There are themes of love, loss, and healing that will make you stop and think about what is truly important in your life. Readers will find some great secondary characters in the book as well, including Uncle Mannie, who only wants what's best for Abby, but maybe doesn't go about helping her find "what's best" in the way we expect. I thought the author did a wonderful job of making each character relatable and the reader will definitely feel like part of the story as Carter and Abby try to figure out where they stand and maybe even find a Christmas miracle.
A wonderful way to start off my holiday season.

Here's the back copy:
Carter is an insurance adjuster whose longing for creative expression spills over sometimes into his accident reports.
Abby works for her adoptive father, Uncle Mannie, in the family bookstore, the ReadMore Cafe.
Carter can barely tolerate Christmas; Abby loves it. She can’t wait past October to build her favorite display, the annual Christmas book tree stack, which Carter despises.
When an automobile accident throws Carter and Abby together, Uncle Mannie, who is harboring secrets of his own, sees a chance for lasting happiness for his little girl. But there are so many hurdles, and not much time left. Will this Christmas deliver the miracles everyone is hoping for?
