Can This Be Christmas? | Debbie Macomber

6 incredibly short audiobooks (3 free on audible & recommended by fellow #Littens) and 2 books already in progress entering December boosted my completions. I have 2 books I thought I‘d finish before the end of the week but an impromptu family dinner and family time changed that. 💙🤓

I listened to this one on a roadtrip today. I really enjoyed the narration! The story was good, but I kept thinking 1. These characters would be really fun to perform on stage and 2.The game Clue kept popping in my head ‘Mrs. White in the ball room with the pipe‘ 😂

I have just realized I am reading this too early! Because the Long Blank books are so forgettable that my brain elided over them! Whoops!

I am trying to put my finger on what doesn't feel right about this (because it didn't feel right the first time and it doesn't feel right now) and: maybe it's the very long speeches people are giving uninterrupted?
(Moist also hasn't been in it much, for a Moist book, but that's more disappointing than anything.)

It was five o, clock on a winter‘s morning in Syria. Alongside the platform at Aleppo stood the train grandly designated in railway guides as the Taurus Express.

He struggles to get there and to even believe at first in the end he realizes seeing is believing but sometimes we cannot always see what's real. He takes a chance and embarks on this journey and realizes just how magical it really is and how that will never fade for who believes.

Starting this book for #OokBOokClub and I am reminded: I don't much care about trains. It was one of my problems the first time around!

Mehso-so

The book begins as a quaint crime novel in the traditional whodunnit style. Unfortunately, it soon becomes excessively concerned with train times and loses sight of the characters and the crime itself. I still enjoyed the calm polite tone of the writing.
I also found it entertaining how much of the story depends on every train running exactly on time every day - not a premise that would have worked for a book set in the UK 😄
