Book Review - "Forever Christmas"

Book Description from the publisher:

This Christmas will change Andrew Farmer’s life forever.

Andrew can’t remember the last time he spent Christmas away from work. The end of the year is crunch time for literary agents. But when your career is your life, your life starts to suffer . . . beginning with your marriage.

When a heart-wrenching accident in a Christmas Eve snowstorm jars this high-powered agent from his obsession with success, a Christmas miracle will give him a second chance at love, life, and gratitude, but only if he can put aside his own ambition and learn to appreciate each moment.

Sometimes it takes a tragedy to change a man’s life—and to teach him to treat every day as if it were his last.

About the Author

Robert Tate Miller began his writing career with homespun essays of small town life that were published by Reader's Digest, The Christian Science Monitor, and the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. He moved to Los Angeles in the late 1980s and wrote successful family-oriented telefilms for NBC, ABC Family, and the Hallmark Channel. Robert lives in Northridge, CA, with his wife Gina and stepdaughter Chloe June.

 My Review:
I love all things Christmas and I could not wait to read this book when I saw it and read the description of it.  It is so easy to get caught up in work and in life in general and just living the motions, taking what means the most for granted and not taking time to really live in the moment and appreciate what and who matters in our lives.  Andrew learns first-hand all this through a tragedy and learns what matters the most in his life.  Be prepared to be completely engrossed in this story and to cry as this is a tear-jerker, but a beautiful book that you will not want to put down.  This book has found a spot on my bookshelf and will be enjoyed year after year.  Also, I absolutely love the cover on this book, beautiful job with the cover art!
