It was a bit long and a lot of internal monologue by Father Christmas. I am Catholic so found some of the attitude of the Anglican priest disturbing especially confession and the sex life of a priest. I really didn't need to hear the thoughts of a priest lusting for women. I also found it almost comical at how easily life is for a priest to marry a Jewish woman and now raise a Jewish girl. Real life is not that simple.
Interesting story. I enjoyed that so many characters were involved and we got to see them interact.
I missed the regulars in this story -- more Betsy, Jill, Lars, etc
also, this was the first narrated by Connie Crawford but I really didn't like her. Susan Boyce did a much better job.
It was a cute story but I rarely listen to a book a second time.
The hotel manager whose name I forgot. She was a whoot.
Melissa Hughes performance was excellent. Here reading was so much better than Susan Boyce whose reading is very robotic and grating.
