Christmas On Candy Cane Lane: A Life In Icicle Falls Novel by Sheila Roberts - Book Review
About The Book:
Icicle Falls is the place to be at Christmas…
Everyone's getting ready for Christmas in Icicle Falls, especially on Candy Cane Lane, where holiday decorating is taken very seriously. Tilda Morrison, town cop, is looking forward to celebrating Christmas in her first house…until she discovers that she's expected to "keep up" with the neighbors, including Maddy Donaldson, the inspiration behind the whole extravaganza. But this year, someone's destroying Maddie's precious candy canes! Thank goodness for the cop in their neighborhood.
Tilda already has her hands full trying to sort out her love life and fix up her fixer-upper. Oh, and won't it be fun to have the family over for Christmas dinner? Not really… Then there's her neighbor, Ivy Bohn. As a newly single mom, Ivy can sum up the holiday in two words: Bah, humbug. But she's determined to give her kids a perfect Christmas.
Despite family disasters, irritating ex-husbands and kitchen catastrophes, these three women are going to find out that Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year!
I always enjoy taking a trip to Icicle Falls, and author Sheila Roberts treats her readers to a special Christmas visit with her new book, "Christmas on Candy Cane Lane."
This is one fun-filled, sassy story! Roberts piles on the Christmas spirit with the stories of three neighbors who couldn't be more different, but who, in the end, just want one thing - love! And a little peace ... and a little holiday cheer!
The characters in this story are unique in their own individual ways, and the setting - oh, that little town setting is so fabulous! I want to go visit there and snuggle into the winter frolics. It's a true sign of a great storyteller when you can see the story in your mind, and Sheila Roberts is a great storyteller.
While this is book 8 in the Life In Icicle Falls series, first time readers can easily get in on the small-town fun and most assuredly be lured into checking out the previous books in this charming series. I highly recommend the entire series!
