A remote Texas town once again serves as a backdrop for a beautifully heart-tugging romance in A CHRISTMAS AFFAIR.
Author Jodi Thomas returns to Crossroads, Texas to make yet another unlikely match. This time, she pairs up Maria Davis with store merchant Wes Whitman. What makes this such a poignant tale is the timing of the story coinciding with the anniversary of the incident that robbed Maria of her eyesight.
The author has proven time and time again with this series that her characters are multi-dimensional. Maria is certainly a strong character, but her vulnerability in wanting to experience a man's touch adds to her appeal. Wes provides an excellent contrast because he would like nothing more than to being Maria's book fantasies to life...but he's thinking more long term.
As with earlier installments in the Ransom Canyon series, cameo appearances are made by the town residents that readers like myself have fallen in love with. The Fuller brothers have taken in a teen relative, who I imagine will eventually get his own story.
With this novella, Jodi Thomas once again demonstrates the beauty of simplicity found in this small Texas town. There's plenty of love and laughter to go around, with even some potential drama.
