Book Review: The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans

Library: Central Branch (BPL)
Genre: Christmas Inspirational Fiction

Richard Evans and his wife Kerri live in very small quarters in Salt Lake City, Utah. The space is so small that their daughter, Jenna, still has to sleep in her crib at age 4. One day Kerri finds an ad requesting a live-in couple to help her around her mansion. The end of this short tale leaves the young couple's lives forever changed.

One of the many things that I liked about this novella was the beautiful, descriptive language:
"And then, there's the smell of perfumed candles, and hot wassail or creamy cocoa...the smells of Christmas are the smells of childhood"
I also loved the pace and unraveling the small mysteries. If you love Christmas and heartwarming books, I suggest this one! I'm definitely a fan of Evans now, but I will read a third, longer novel to make sure that I completely sold on him!
