Christmas has never brought out the best in the MacDougal family. Still, year after year, they gather together in the Blue Ridge Mountains to try to make the season merry and bright. But this year is an especially strained one, with Shayne’s impending divorce, Morwenna’s slavish devotion to work and Bobby’s reluctance to face what life has to offer. They’ve never felt less like a family.
Then, in the midst of a snowy sibling shouting match, a mysterious stranger appears. He could be a criminal, a madman - or something far more unexpected. Despite their fears and the growing danger in the dark woods around them, the MacDougals take a leap of faith. But when another stranger arrives on the mountainside, they don’t know which of them to believe. One of these men can’t be trusted. And one is about to bring Christmas into their hearts.

Rabid book reader / listener. I love audiobooks. It's much better than "channel surfing" on the radio while I travel for work.
another good read
The way the family pulled together to figure things out.
The ability to give realism to each character.
I laughed at some of Genieve's antics especially her non-stop birthday wishes.
Nice feel good story filled with hope at Christmas. The narrator could have been better, she had no emotion in her voice and her pitch changes between characters was almost non-existent, especially bad for the male voices.
The different characters’ personalities unfold for the reader and until the end there is doubt on how the plot will develop. Definitely I felt like listening to all in one sitting.
