Catching Christmas 
This Year, Christmas Comes Just in Time
As a first-year law associate, Sydney Batson knows she will be updating her resume by New Year’s if she loses her current court case. So when her grandmother gets inexplicably ill while she’s in court, Sydney arranges for a cab to get her to the clinic.
The last thing cab driver Finn Parrish wants is to be saddled with a wheelchair-bound old lady with dementia. But because Miss Callie reminds him of his own mother, whom he failed miserably in her last days, he can’t say no when she keeps calling him for rides. Once a successful gourmet chef, Finn’s biggest concern now is making his rent, but half the time Callie doesn’t remember to pay him. And as she starts to feel better, she leads him on wild goose chases to find a Christmas date for her granddaughter.
When Finn meets Sydney, he’s quite sure that she’s never needed help finding a date. Does Miss Callie have an ulterior motive, or is this just a mission driven by delusions? He’s willing to do whatever he can to help fulfill Callie’s Christmas wish. He just never expected to be a vital part of it.

My Thoughts

I have loved most every book I have read by Terri Blackstock. This book is different than her typical suspense and I wasn't sure what to expect. The book is actually rather small and I think it read more as a novella than a novel. I loved how the story played out, it is different and fresh. I like how it was set around Christmas, I also love that Finn is explained to be similar to Luke in Gilmore Girls. With that in mind it makes his character all the better in my opinion. I also think this story shows how people typically act and how we tend to not see the big picture or the things that matter. The romance I really didn't like but the rest of the story was enjoyable.
If you are wanting a unique Christmas story this is the book for you!

Four stars.
