Her ex-husband provides little, if any, child support and makes life difficult for Christine by using the children as pawns. She works long hours as a waitress to make ends meet, but her job is in jeopardy because she's often late to work due to the unreliable teenaged sitters she's forced to use.When Christine saves the life of a woman who works in Wilson's department store, the owner of Wilson's wants to find her, to thank her, but Christine has disappeared, losing another job once again. He sets his grandson, Jason, to the task of finding the mysterious "Christy". Jason, an accountant by trade who has lost his job to downsizing, thinks he is "above" working at Wilson's. Soon he discovers that this new task gives him more than he bargains for.The Christmas Secret is a novel for anyone who wants to see how love is a gift that keeps giving back, that hope is a treasure that never runs dry, and that faith is a miracle that is reborn with each new day.

Sweet Story for Christmas Time

I love this story of single mom meets young know-it-all who comes home to the family store and has to "work for a living". The characters are like the ones all of us have met and know. That is what I like about Donna VanLiere's books. They are filled with people you could actually know. This is a great Christmas listen for families.

I wish the Christmas Secret were still a secret

Ugh, this was a silly, schmaltzy book. I didn't care for the main character, which set the book off on a bad note for me. There were many highly unbelievable elements to the story, like the single mom who kept complaining about how old and worn down she was (she was 27!) and the 24 year old accounting hot shot who was was being hotly pursued by top level firms. The whole thing seemed to pander to a sentimental simpleton.

That said, I was hoping to like this book. I like to "read" sweet and sentimental Christmas books during the holidays, but this one was not for me.
