Book Review – Cross-Country Christmas by Laurie Lewis

Shown under the Fair Use Act for Critiquing

Cross-Country Christmas is one of the loveliest Contemporary Christian Romance novels I’ve ever read!  For readers who enjoy wholesome, sweet romances with a bit of grit and complex characters this is a perfect read.

There is always more to a person than what you see, never was this truer than for rancher Reese Brockbank and Chicago girl CC Cippolini.  The two of them have hurts in their past that make it hard for them to open up and accept love, even when it is staring them in the face.  I appreciate the author’s theme of pain being a part of growth, and I found the gentle Christian lessons within the pages uplifting and inspiring.  As with all love stories, the course of true love never runs smooth, and there are things that Reese and CC must learn to accept about themselves before they can move on.  The imagery (like singing Carols to an injured fawn) throughout the book captivated my heart and made me smile.  The best line from the book for me is this: Love is powerful, when we give it, love is a gift, and when we withhold it, love is a weapon.  This is a definite 5 star review from me, and I look forward to reading more by this author.

Laurie Lewis has a wonderful smooth writing style, crisp, clean text and a perfect-pitch storyteller’s voice.  She masterfully controls the pace and keeps you turning pages.  With endearing characters and an atmospheric setting that brings Christmas to life, this dreamy Christian Romance comes very highly recommended by Chick Lit Café.
