Loved it! A unique story full of fun characters and a twisty plot. Suspense, mystery, romance, all wrapped up in a Christmas bow.
I teach American Literature and am the proud daddy of a 2 year old.
This one had been recommended to me over the years and I finally gave it a listen. Boy am I glad I did. What a wonderful holiday novel. I can see this being an annual tradition. While its is very different from Baldacci's usual fare, this is a delightful book. You may find yourself wanting to ride the rails a bit for your next trip.
This is my sixth Christmas without my beloved wife, she passed from Cervical Cancer. Needless to say, Christmases have always been hard. They have been to me, more of a reminder of gifts lost, of things taken, leaving an emptiness, than of gifts received. This book reminded me of how precious the gift was that I had in my life. Of how truly rich I had been, with her presence in my life, and of how truly rich I am, to have such memories of that fact. This book made me laugh often, and cry often too. This book reminded me that there are second chances in life, which gives me hope, and that Christmas can give gifts that one never expects, but which one needs
desperately. This books gift was hope, not only for my present, but for my future, which I finally, do not dread.
I enjoyed the surprise and joy in this story of Christmas love on a cross country train trip.
I loved this story. Interesting characters in an unusual but believable situation, with laugh or loud dialogue. And, Mr. Matheson's performance was terrific!! I went searching for other books he's read and sadly only found 2 others. Sigh....
I love listening to audio books. I will usually follow along with the printed version while listening to the audio book.
I read this book for a church book club. I found the mystery of the characters to be very riveting. I loved how one of the main characters, Agnes Joe plays out in the end of the story.
Yes, for both however not because of this book.
Yes, he is prolific and I have heard good things about some of his books.
I am partial to him because of his acting. He does the main character well.
Nothing really. Ahh at the end.
I bought this on sale, I would recommend it if it is on sale.
