Soon the town-- and local craftsman Caleb Colton-- make it difficult for Wendy to resists their charms.

This is the 16th book I've read written by Melody Carlson. Her contributions to the Grace Chapel Inn series have long been a favorite of mine. I've really laughed while reading and just plain felt good after finishing her other books, especially her Christmas novellas, written with heart and humor.

'A Christmas by the Sea' has a lot of heart. I wish I could more to say that's positive but it was also full of angst over lies, worry over money (neither of which make a 'bad' story) and an ending that infuriated me. That ending is so trite, so ridiculous and far too unworthy of Melody Carlson.

I'm giving 'A Christmas by the Sea' a generous 3 stars, C-

I leafed through this quickly and finished it in two sittings, mostly because it was somewhat predictable. Clean novel, no language or sex, faith-based.
