I love Christmas stories and this one did not disappoint. This story was well written and easy to follow.
Alice owns a candle shop in New York that is not doing so well. She is going to be married on Christmas to her wealthy boyfriend Philip. Philip wanted Alice to close her store but she wasn't sure she wanted to.
It was a few days before the holidays and Alice was driving to their house in the country. A snow story was coming and so she was hoping to make it to the house with no problem. Along the way she runs into an accident and was directed to take a side road. Here she meets someone who directs her to a cute bed and breakfast to stay for the night. He also told her to search the book shelf. Which she did an found a diary. After reading the diary she wants to find out more about the man who wrote it.
What does she find out? Who is the man who directed her to the bed and breakfast? Does she sell her candle shop? You will need to read The Christmas Diary and find out. I am sure you will enjoy the book just like I did!
