FRIDAY: The Christmas Shoppe by Melody Carlson

At first it just seems like small town politics. An "outsider" buys up a prime piece of property out from under a councilman. When everyone thinks it's going to be a Christmas shop, it's no big deal. Instead, Matilda, the owner, fills the shelves with old "junk." The other downtown business owners are up in arms, ready to run Matilda out of town. One by one, though, people walk into The Christmas Shoppe and walk out changed - even some of Matilda's biggest challengers. What is really going on at The Christmas Shoppe.

I went to the library before Christmas strictly to find holiday stories to help me get into the holiday spirit. This was a nice read, but nothing earth shattering. Nice Christmas message of forgiveness and redemption. Would make a nice Christmas gift.

3 out of 5 stars
