Overview

In this novel in Thomas Kinkade’s heartwarming series, the holiday season brings changes and challenges to many in Cape Light. But on one silent night, peace and harmony will prevail.
 
Sophie Potter is grateful for so many happy years among her beloved apple trees. But her family insists that she can no longer live alone. So Sophie makes a deal to spend one last Christmas on Potter Orchard. Luckily, her grandson James arrives in time to help her make plans for the best holiday gathering Cape Light has ever seen. James isn’t planning on staying in Cape Light. An aspiring writer, he’s eager for adventure and plans to take off on a trip around the world. But once James meets Zoey Bates, he starts to understand that leaving Cape Light might cost him the greatest adventure of all—falling in love.
 
Meanwhile, after more than fifteen years as Cape Light’s mayor, Emily Warwick has lost the election to her lifelong rival, Charlie Bates. Emily is delighted to have more time for her family, but when a group of citizens begin fighting to preserve the town’s character, Emily can’t shake her desire to protect her town. Soon she finds herself back on a familiar battleground with Charlie and her family. It’s not the place anyone wants to be. Especially on Christmas.

Another Christmas in Cape Light – I look forward to new stories set in Thomas Kinkade’s Cape Light. How refreshing to read this one in the heat of July. I typically read new books in this series soon after they are released, which has been in the fall of the year since 2004, but circumstances prevented that with this one. The writing is so realistic that I kept thinking it was cold outside as I read the book. At one point, I had to put the book down to take care of something outside and actually thought for a moment that I should get my coat before going out into the cold, only to remember that the temperature outside was well over 80 degrees. Sophie Potter was a huge part of this story as she struggled with what to do about her home and apple orchard because her adult children were trying to force her to sell it and move in with one of them due to her advancing age. She was steadfast in seeking God’s will for her future, setting a good example for all Christians. As in most of the other Cape Light books, Reverend Ben played a key role in the lives of several of the other characters as he offered suggestions with insight and wisdom. His Christmas message was possibly the best message of any that have been shared throughout this series. Catching up with old friends and meeting new ones was a pleasant experience as usual. One colossal change has taken place in the little village. After trying for years to get elected as mayor, Charlie Bates has finally beaten Emily Warwick in the mayoral election and is learning the challenges of that position along with the continuing responsibility of running his diner, Clam Box. The saying, “be careful what you wish for because you might get it”, has never seemed truer. If you have not read this series, I suggest you start at the beginning and learn all about the wonderful people of Cape Light.
