Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
We chose to listen to this as a family on a road trip. If you have kids who believe in Santa, do not listen to this with them! The book spills the beans and this could be traumatic to a kid who still believes.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I would have used a different narrator. The story seemed a bit far fetched, too (I don't think the mother in law would really be that cruel).
How could the performance have been better?
Personally, I didn't like the voice of the narrator. She grated on my nerves a bit (sorry!).
Any additional comments?
While we did enjoy this story, it wasn't my favorite but it was enjoyable. I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

I listened to "A Christmas Miracle" and I liked it although I thought it had the potential to be much better. I like the direction the author Sandy Loyd is moving in. I like that she's a country girl as am I and I feel she's an author to watch for great things to come.
The overall story was good and I would have liked more back story and world-building. I felt that this was a glimpse into a much larger story. And whew, as far as the protagonist Megan's former mother-in-law blaming her for their loss, I was glad she finally took Kevin's advice and stood her ground. I felt there was too much of a jump ahead as far as the two of them getting together. I would have liked more in this area as far as relationship building. I liked the suspense towards the end. I thought that was good and it drew me in.
Carol Dines narration was hit and miss for me on this one. The hit was that I can hear in her tone that she has what it takes. Her tone was nice and I could listen to her again. The miss was that in a few places I felt her inflections were overly dramatic. It would also be good to just move from chapter to chapter without the title being repeated each time.
Good job ladies and I really do hope to hear more from both in the future.
