Yep, it's late January 2019 and I'm still catching up on my Christmas reading starting with 'Catching Christmas'!

'Catching Christmas' is a sweet little book that will make you laugh out loud by the very determined elderly Callie. It's a book of courage, faith and redemption.

I enjoyed 'Catching Christmas' and was so eager for 'what happens next' that I probably read it too fast, in under the time it took my husband to watch a movie.

'Catching Christmas' is the first book I've read from Terri Blackstock since Seaside in 2001. I'm so glad I read them both.

Catching Christmas by Terri Blackstock is a Christmas short story. Sydney Batson is a first-year law associate with a pressing court case. So, when her grandmother needs to go to the doctor, she arranges for a cab to take her, since she can’t leave court. Flynn Parrish responds to a call never expecting to pick up a sick, little old lady with dementia. As Flynn drives Carrie around on her errands he begins to care about her. Carrie’s greatest Christmas wish is for her granddaughter to be happy. This was such a sweet story. The only draw back was that it was written in first person; and skipped back and forth between Sydney and Flynn too often. The story-line caught your attention and held it throughout. Never forget the people in your life. Take care of them, spend time with them. Just be there for them. One day you may find that they are no longer here on earth and you don’t want to have any regrets. Make each day count.

I received this book from Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review.
