From “The King of Christmas,” Richard Paul Evans, the next exciting holiday-themed novel in his New York Times bestselling The Noel Collection.
Maggie Walther feels like her world is imploding. Publicly humiliated after her husband, a local councilman, is arrested for bigamy, and her subsequent divorce, she has isolated herself from the world. When her only friend insists that Maggie climb out of her hole, and embrace the season to get her out of her funk, Maggie decides to put up a Christmas tree and heads off to buy one—albeit reluctantly. She is immediately taken by Andrew, the kind, handsome man who owns the Christmas tree lot and delivers her tree. She soon learns that Andrew is single and new to her city and, like her, is also starting his life anew.
As their friendship develops, Maggie slowly begins to trust again—something she never thought possible. Then, just when she thinks she has finally found happiness, she discovers a dark secret from Andrew’s past. Is there more to this stranger’s truth than meets the eye? This powerful new holiday novel from Richard Paul Evans, the “King of Christmas fiction” (The New York Times), explores the true power of the season, redemption, and the freedom that comes from forgiveness.

Maggie Walther gets the shock of her life when a newspaper reporter calls her to ask if she has a comment on her husband getting arrested for bigamy. Maggie quickly goes into a downward spiral of depression that she seems to be incapable of breaking. free from. When her employee and best friend challenges her to get a Christmas tree, Maggie reluctantly goes to buy one. She gets the tree, but she also got a lot more than she bargained for. This was an emotionally charged, enjoyable Christmas story. I love this author's books and this one did not disappoint!
I really like his books! This was a fast sweet read. Maybe alittle sappy at times but I still enjoyed it
Not RPE’s best work. Or maybe I’m just tired of the “formula.”
This is the most interesting book ever. Never in any of his books have an intriguing twist in this story. Truly the best book I have ever read.
