Sweet and Current
Reviewed in the United States on October 23, 2020
RaeAnne has a wonderful way of incorporating sweetness with current people. It's rare to find books where there is a rich blend of children "speak" along with a CEO (whose billions of dollars doesn't make everything oh so easy) topped off by a best friend who is a polyglot and world traveler. Toss in some spiciness of a grandma then shake up your snow globe and as the flakes settle the characters see each other and discover the joy of the season. While the backdrop of holiday traditions adds flavor for the reader, RaeAnne's characters could be set anywhere or any time and still exemplify the human journey of tragedy, joy, love, heartbreak, despair, and friendship!! Abby and her son, their cat, Ethan and his sister Lucy, together with Winnie, the family matriarch and her three corgis warm our hearts as their journeys mingle and blend.
