In this fourth installment of the poignant stories of the McCray family and their lovable canines in rural Kansas, matriarch Mary Ann McCray is determined to shake up Christmas by accepting the role as Crossing Trail's first woman Santa Claus. Mary Ann, always a bit of a rebel, is looking to offer a more progressive voice in the staunchly conservative town at Christmastime and has a few ideas up her red velvet sleeves.

Great addition to the series
Another wonderful addition to the Dog Named Christmas series!
It was great to see how things have changed with the McCray family since we last left them and boy oh boy there was some big news at the end so I sure hope there will be another book with McCray's!
Mark Bramhall's narration was as always wonderful!

Another Great Kincaid Christmas Book!
If you've followed Kincaid's series of Christmas with the McCray family, you're absolutely certain to be delighted with this latest installment.
Not only is Mary Ann turning Christmas on its head by being the town's (and the entire area's) first Mrs. Claus, Todd is growing up, and the elder McCray's are indeed getting older. There are questions of giving instead of receiving, of love, of faith for the future. And of course! There are lovable dogs along the way.
What I like best about Kincaid's sometimes predictable stories is that he's not afraid to tackle the other issues that are beneath the surface during what are supposed to be the peaceful and happy times that are said to go hand-in-hand with the season: separation and divorce, pain and recrimination, alcoholism and dis-ease. And all are helped with love and selflessness.
Though Noelle is possibly the strongest of the four books, feel free to start anywhere on this fine Christmas Eve/Season. You're sure to feel the warmth, the love, the happy friendship (of struggling people, of faithful four-legged friends)!
