When single, unattached John McCabe goes out for last-minute Christmas shopping, what he doesn't expect is to find himself in the middle of a life or death rescue.

John isn't known for having the perfect gift for everyone at Christmas. He usually hits the malls in the final hours before they close, grabs the last thing on the shelf, and cringes as the gifts are unwrapped. But this year is different. He's determined to do better.

However, on his way to a store in downtown Salem, he spots a crowd of people and sees a woman on the rooftop of a five-story building, about to jump to her death.

Instead of waiting for help, John does what he knows his father and uncles would do: He goes out on the rooftop after the stranger with the sole intention of talking her down. What he soon learns is how a desperate situation can turn into the worst-case scenario, because this woman believes there is no turning back.

It’s nice to get back to the McCabe family! When John is faced with a quick decision, he makes the decision to help a stranger. Violet feels that she has no choices and life is not worth living. It’s an emotional read but very insightful. I’m hoping that this isn’t the last of John and Violet. I think they would make a great couple.

This short story packs an emotional punch. In a time where all too often people choose not to get involved when others are in trouble, John McCabe refuses to just stand by and watch. He steps up to try to persuade Violet to not carry through with her plans to end her troubles. Whether he fails or not, he has made the choice to try to make a difference in someone else’s life. This story serves as a reminder to all of us to help others when we can, to strive to make a difference, and to put our best selves forward.

This book was just a teaser of hopefully a full book of how this story ends. I was disappointed that there was not more of an ending. mjw

What would you do when faced with making a quick decision to save a stranger’s life? It’s a decision John McCabe certainly didn’t think he was going to have to make when he left work to do his family Christmas shopping. And it’s a decision no one wants to have to ever make, but when confronted with a matter of life or death, John literally jumps in to do what he knows is the right thing to do. Violet may believe her life is truly over and there’s only one way out, but John’s determined to prove her wrong; if only he can get close enough to do it. Even when life seems at its darkest, there’s always a tomorrow, and that may be the best Christmas gift John has ever given. This is a heart-stopping story that will have you holding your breath and on the edge of your seat. For some this may be a very emotional read as suicide is a very sensitive topic, but it’s handled in a very compassionate and yet compelling manner. And, although this is not a romance, it makes a heart-felt impact, and who knows, maybe there’s destined to be more for John and Violet in the future.

When you leave the office to buy last minute Christmas presents you don’t expect to end up on the roof of your building trying to talk down a would be suicide jumper. This is the situation that John finds himself in. Once again Lorhainne Eckhart has written a compelling and compassionate story which I thoroughly enjoyed.
