Join USA TODAY bestselling author Sheila Roberts this Christmas as she returns for the final installment in her treasured Icicle Falls series
When Muriel Sterling released her new book, A Guide to Happy Holidays, she felt like the queen of Christmas. She’s thrilled when the new tree she ordered online arrives and is eager to show it off—until she gets it out of the box and realizes it’s a mangy dud. But rather than give up on the ugly tree, Muriel decides to make a project out of it. As she pretties up her tree, she realizes there’s a lesson to be learned: everything and everyone has potential. Maybe even her old friend Arnie, who’s loved her for years. Except, she’s not the only one seeing Arnie’s potential…
Meanwhile, Muriel’s ugly-tree project has also inspired her friends. Sienna Moreno is trying to bring out the best in the grouchy man next door, who hates noise, hates kids and hates his new neighbors. And while Olivia Claussen would love to send her obnoxious new daughter-in-law packing, she’s adjusting her attitude and trying to discover what her son sees in the girl. If these women can learn to see the beauty in the “ugly trees” in their lives, perhaps this might turn out to be the happiest holiday yet.
This last visit to Icicle Falls is a wonderfully delightful way to wrap up the series. This is definitely one series I am going to miss especially during the holiday season. This story is packed full of all kind of emotions. It made me laugh, cry, sad, and happy. As with most of the books there are several stories going on at once while having a common thread. In this one the thread is The Ugly Tree! What was suppose to be a spectacular new artificial tree turns out the be much less than that. Seems like the whole town gets in on the project to turn The Ugly Tree into a thing of beauty. During the process the true meaning of the season definitely takes hold and makes for one beautiful Christmas for everyone.
Put this one on the must read list for this holiday season. It's easily read standalone and you don't want to miss it.
A MUST READ!
Christmas in Icicle Falls
This book is the last in the series and I am both happy and sad. Happy because it
ended on a wonderful note and a new series will begin soon. Sad because I absolutely loved Icicle Falls.
I do NOT give away spoilers so if you looking for that…sorry!
Shelia Roberts out did herself in the final book of Icicle Falls. She brought out the kindness in her characters, love to share abundantly and caring for everyone. Muriel, Arnie, Dot, Sienna, Tim, Leo, Ashley, Amy, Olivia, Brooke, Meadow and so many more wonderful characters to enjoy.
Her characters had many things to conquer in each their own way. They had the task of making an “ugly tree” into something beautiful. The “ugly tree” for everyone was something different. It was a large learning curve for everyone but the story told was magnificent.
I cannot stress enough how good this book was and the best book I have read in a long while. Don’t take my word for it…..read it!!
