Christmas Book Review: Christmas Treasures: A Cape Light novel by Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer

I love Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer's Cape Light series - there is just something about that small town way of life that these authors portray that just touches my heart, and I particularly enjoy the Christmas-themed tales that have become an annual tradition for this collection.

This year's offering is just delightful and heartwarming!

About The Book:

Experience the spirit of Christmas brought to life in the latest Cape Light novel.

Reverend Ben has been ignoring his health recently and it's finally caught up with him-he's developed a heart problem, and requires bypass surgery. Since Ben will need six weeks' recuperation and physical rehab, interim minister Isabel Moran is assigned to the congregation.

Is this health setback a sign from above that it's time for Ben to move on to a new phase of his life? As Ben grows stronger and gets back to his old self, he starts to wonder if he's really ready to celebrate his final Christmas as pastor of the church in Cape Light that has been his life's work. After all, Christmas is a time for giving, but retiring and presenting Isabel with his much treasured job might be the biggest test of faith Ben has ever had to face.

I really enjoyed this edition of the Cape Light stories.  I love that the authors bring in new characters to keep the storyline fresh and interesting, but at the same time bring the reader up to date on the lives of the beloved older characters as well.

If you have never read one of these books, do yourself a favor and check out "Christmas Treasures."  I highly recommend it for your holiday reading!

I purchased this book for my personal library.
