Book Review: The Christmas Shoppe

About the Book:
The small town of Parrish Springs in not quite ready for Matilda Honeycutt.  A strange woman with scraggly hair and jewelry that jangles as she walks, Matlida keeps busy stocking and arranging her new shop on the town's quaint and lovely Main Street.  When rumors start to fly about what might be going on behind the papered-up windows and the locked door, the image-conscience residents start looking for a way to get this woman and her wares out of their town before Christmas.

But Matilda Honeycutt has a little something for each one of them sitting on those cluttered shelves, just waiting to be discovered.

My Thoughts:
This is a funny little book, full of small town people and a few quirky outsiders.  Every where you go you run into one or two people who don't fit the general mold and Matilda is one of those people, but you gotta love her!  Crazy as she seems she has a big heart and a happy soul.  The problem is, the town people want her OUT and they want her out now.

Matilda is one serious sales-person, people walk into her store and before they know it she has charmed them into taking something home with them, when they leave they don't quite know what has happened, it's just one of her quirks, and her quirks may be just what the town needs.

And of course, what's the Christmas season without a little romance in the air?  This book has a little bit of everything, a crazy lady, angry town people and a little love...the perfect mix for an entertaining read!
