Book Description: A Dog Named Christmas comes this heartwarming Christmas story about the power of family and the strength and love that comes from our pets. 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.
My Thoughts: Now that the Christmas season is officially here it's so nice to read books that put one in the holiday mood.
This is the fourth book about the McCray family and their dogs. And the books are about different dogs so one doesn't have to read the books in order since each book is a stand alone story.
It's so nice to read a Christmas story that is fun and uplifting.
And Mary Ann McCray is a hoot! She is determined and mean determined that Crossing Trails have Christmas.
Quite a few plot lines running through this story...kind of like life...so many things going on at once.
It's interesting how the dog, Noelle, brings the story together. So, whether your dog lover or not, I believe that you'll find this short story full of holiday cheer.
A fun, entertaining, and light read about Christmas and man's best friend. This is also a small, nice hardback book making it perfect for gift giving and to slip into one's suitcase or travel bag for holiday traveling.
