"The Christmas Shoppe" brought a lot of surprises to it and opened up the lives of all who lived in the town! It was a short book -- wish it could have been longer-- but it was very good and made you look inside yourself to see what event in the past helped shape your life. It is one I will read again!

Well I did like this story though I thought it could have been a little longer. Also I thought it would be more about Christmas. The subject itself is brought up a lot but it takes place around Thanksgiving. Overall it is a good read!

I enjoyed this book. The story line was interesting and mysterious at times. Life lessons to be thought about but story was still fun to read. Ended Happily enough.

A great holiday read! This was a cute story that had you look inside yourself for answers and to search within yourself . Sometimes the obvious is right in front of us when we open our eyes. More than just a Christmas story, it’s about forgiveness and love.

Parrish Springs was typical small town USA. Then Matilda Honeycutt purchased the old Barton Building in the downtown area and things began to change. Councilman George Snider didn't like change. First, the city hired a female city manager, Susanna Elton. So he tried to quietly make her life difficult. Sometimes he wasn't so quiet about it. That's how small town politics worked. When Ms. Honeycutt put in a bid for the old vacant building, it was accepted and that didn't sit right with George Snider, either. He had wanted to buy that old building himself, although many in the community weren't so excited about that. They had heard he wanted to sell it to a big box discount store. They all knew what would happen then. Local businesses would suffer. Matilda began preparing her building for her business. She didn't tell anyone what type of business it was, but rumors were flying. Other businesses were nervous. Then a big sign was delivered to the old Barton Building. "Christmas Shoppe." Before the doors were open for business, rumors began to fly all over town. Not all of them were very nice. People were now being nosy, curious, and nasty. They picked on Matilda's appearance. They picked on the items a few have seen that were to be put on the shelves. It was all a mystery. No one could figure out this new businesswoman. When the doors opened the mystery deepened. It looked like a shoddy thriftshop, not a Christmas store. People began to get angry and the other businesses on that street signed a petition to close Matilda's store down. But while all this is happening, mysterious things were going on. Susanna was baffled when she tried to warn Matilda what people were saying about her. She wanted Matilda's small business to succeed. But Matilda didn't pay her any mind. One by one, people entered the shop and their lives were subtly changed. When I want a unique story to read, especially a Christmas story, Melody Carson is my go to author. Her books are refreshing, unique, and meaningful. I have read many of her Christmas stories, and my heart has always been touched in one way or other. This one is no exception. The plot is slow to develop, but holds our interest in many ways. We become engaged with the characters and with the town atmosphere. They are always so true to life. There is an air of mystery, almost a taste of fantasy, but always with a good heart issue at the core. I tried to guess what the purpose of the puzzling thrift shop could be, but as usual I was carried right up to the final pages unable to predict where the book would take me. And once again, it touched my heart. I highly recommend this book for those who enjoy small town stories, light mysteries, a touch of fantasy, and a good sound Christmas message.
