"Many people, myself among them, feel better at the mere sight of a book.”
Welcome to Christmas, CA by Kiersten White
I must admit I was a little apprehensive at the beginning because I could not imagine a good Christmas story set in California. Christmas for me means snow and coziness, not hot sun and a diner. But White got the other things right: warm feelings, family, and happiness. I loved all the characters (besides one) in this story. I had a smile on my face the whole time reading. And that little food magic was just adorable. Beautiful little Christmas story.
“It looks like a warm, happy community. It looks like, well, Christmas.”
