Book Review: The Twelve Months of Christmas by Sheila Roberts


Would you ever celebrate Christmas every month? In The Twelve Months of Christmas by Sheila Roberts, a group of friends is looking for a restart after their Christmas holidays bombed. So they decide to coordinate a Christmas do-over in January, then February, then March, then... 

As these three determined women seek out the perfect holiday to sweep away the blues, through their laughter and tears, they discover perfection is highly overrated.

Every time I read a Christmas novel by Sheila Roberts, I say it is my favorite. Then she comes out with a new one, and that quickly becomes my favorite. The Twelve Months of Christmas blends the author's trademark formula of love, humor, and dramatic moments to come up with a winner that her fans, new and old, will enjoy.

Sunny is settling into life with Travis and her two stepchildren who want nothing to do with her. Arianna is recently divorced and living with her young daughter at her mother's house until she gets back on her feet. There's nothing new and exciting in Molly's world. She trudges back and forth to her post office job where she gets beat up by grumpy customers. 

When Sunny and Arianna come up with the idea of "Twelve Months of Christmas," they have no idea how much it will change their lives and attract attention. As they each navigate their worlds, while embracing the Christmas spirit month after month, they learn a lot about themselves and those around them, while having a positive impact on their neighbors and sometimes strangers. 

If you enjoy an engaging seasonal tale, then The Twelve Months of Christmas by Sheila Roberts is an excellent choice.

This sounds great. I've enjoyed many of her books in the past and see it's available in audio on the Hoopla app so adding it to my Dec. list. Thanks for your review!
