I was drawn to this book for its beautiful cover...

From amazon: The small town of Parrish Springs is not ready for Matilda Honeycutt. A strange older woman with scraggly gray hair and jewelry that jangles as she walks, Matilda is certainly not the most likely person to buy the old Barton Building on the town's quaint main street. When it becomes apparent that her new shop doesn't fit the expectations of Parrish Springs residents, a brouhaha erupts. After all, Christmas is approaching, and the last thing the town needs is a junky shop run by someone who looks and acts like a gypsy. But as townsfolk venture into the strange store, they discover that old memories can bring new life and healing.

Once again, Melody Carlson delivers a Christmas story that will touch hearts and delight the senses. Sure to be a classic, The Christmas Shoppe is filled with the special magic the best Christmas stories share--that intangible mixture of nostalgia, joy, and a little bit of magic.

Just a perfect "Hallmark" story. A quick read with a lovely message. I was going to wild release in Vancouver but will keep for the bookcrossing group!

This was a fun, predictable light and fluffy book which was exactly what I wanted to get me in the holiday spirit. I rather enjoyed it.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Unfortunately I am unable to make the "December Christmas" themed meeting of the Calgary BookCrossers. I read some great Christmas books and wanted to make sure they made it into the hands of readers prior to Christmas so I am passing them to my mom who as nicely agreed to take them to the meeting. Who knows, I couple might end up with her to read first.
