#142 : The Christmas Wedding - James Patterson & Richard DiLallo (With Giveaway)

The tree is decorated, the cookies are baked, and the packages are wrapped, but the biggest celebration this Christmas is Gaby Summerhill's wedding. Since her husband died three years ago, Gaby's four children have drifted apart, each consumed by the turbulence of their own lives. They haven't celebrated Christmas together since their father's death, but when Gaby announces that she's getting married--and that the groom will remain a secret until the wedding day--she may finally be able to bring them home for the holidays.
But the wedding isn't Gaby's only surprise--she has one more gift for her children, and it could change all their lives forever. With deeply affecting characters and the emotional twists of a James Patterson thriller, The Christmas Wedding is a fresh look at family and the magic of the season.

My Opinion:
This book is sweet like sugar! Exactly what you want to get you in the holiday spirit. Though I didn't think it was much about Christmas, but more about family.
I really enjoyed how the authors told this story. I flew through it in a couple of hours. I just couldn't put it down. I HAD to know who Gaby was going to marry.
It's not what I normally read from James Patterson, but I really liked that.
This story is definitely one I will be sharing throughout the holiday season.


5/5

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions.
