Do you enjoy shopping for holiday decorations? OR What do you enjoy doing in your free time.?
I had a great time at Hobby Lobby taking pictures of You Make It Feel Like Christmas by @tonishiloh published by @bethanyhousefiction . I was excited about the many beautiful options available to me. I am trying to decide on a Christmas wreath.
📕 You Make It Feel like Christmas by Toni Shiloh is a wonderful Christmas story. Starr is one of five kids and she is coming home for the holidays. She has not told her family that she has recently lost her job in New York, and she also will be attending her sister’s wedding to her ex-boyfriend. Waylon Emmerson has been her older brother’s friend and now owns a Christmas Shop that could use her expertise. They reconnect at Thanksgiving.
This had all the feels for me. It as fun to watch Starr and Waylon’s relationship grow beyond friendship. I enjoyed Waylon’s one liners, watching them both figure out what they really want in for a delightful setting. Starr’s sibling and parents were great secondary characters and I enjoyed the family dynamics.
The themes of family, valuing sibling relationships, and figuring out what matters most resonated with me. The faith part of this book was well done. It was not preachy, but genuine. Starr and Waylon’s chats with God added to the book.
This is a lovely Christmas story that has all the feels. I highly recommend You Make it Feel Like Christmas by Toni Shiloh.
I was give a copy by the publisher and not required to write a positive review. Thank you to Bethany House
