A Wish for Christmas by Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer

Another great installment in the Cape Light series.  I always enjoy coming back to these characters again and again.  I could personally live without the constant Christmas theme that has found its way into the titles and stories of the last several books in the series, but I do still enjoy the stories and the characters.  Cape Light has a way of drawing you back over and over, despite yourself.  If you enjoy small-town life, you should really check out Cape Light and its plethora of unique and interesting characters.  In A Wish for Christmas, the story focuses on David Sawyer, son of Jack Sawyer, and the ever-stalwart Lillian Warwick.  You may find some unexpected treasures in the story as well with Grace Hegman and her father, Digger.  The stories in this installment were enjoyable and worth the read.  Check it out and prepare for the next book - due out in November.  Enjoy!!!

A Christmas Snow

I'd like to go off my usual topic of discussion and tell you about a great movie that I saw recently.  The movie is called A Christmas Snow.  It's the story of a woman with a hurt from her past that she can't seem to move beyond.  Yet, something amazing happens in her life during one particular snowstorm.  Kathleen's life is forever changed through a special series of events.  This movie is about forgiveness, family, and connection.  It made me laugh and cry and wonder what was going to happen next.  I appreciate that the film is clean and family-friendly.  Those movies are hard to find these days, especially ones that are well-acted and made.  I enjoyed that there was a little humor, a little romance, and a little drama - some of everything.  I would highly recommend that you watch this very special Christmas film.  You can watch it with the whole family!  I believe it will be released on October 8th.
