The Christmas Note by Donna VanLiere

The Christmas Note is a story about two neighbors that seem to have nothing in common. One is a military mother that is raising her two kids alone. The other is a single woman that seems to want to stay to herself. Due to a tragedy and needing to inform the single woman that her mother has passed away, they become great friends and even more. There are a few unexpected twists and turns in this book that added an excitement to the book. I have read the other books in the series and love Donna's writing. I would strongly recommend this book to others and am going to pass it on to the friend that recommended her series to me!

I received this book for free from Booksneeze.com in exchange for an honest review.

This is a wonderful book to remind each of us to really 'see' our neighbor and to walk with those around us through their valleys and rejoice with them on the hilltops. At first I was taken aback by how Donna VanLiere wrote each chapter from the point of view of either Gretchen or Melissa. As I continued reading, I loved the way that each chapter gave you and insight into their thoughts, feelings, and motivations of each person. Just like an aside in theater, it drew me into the story... these are not just characters in a book, but "friends" you can relate to.
