Review: The Christmas Train by David Baldacci

The Christmas Train by David Baldacci

Publisher: Warner Books
Pages: 288
Format: ebook
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Disillusioned journalist Tom Langdon must get from Washington D.C. to L.A in time for Christmas. Forced to travel by train, he begins a journey of rude awakenings, thrilling adventures and holiday magic. He has no idea that the locomotives pulling him across America will actually take him into the rugged terrain of his own heart, as he rediscovers people's essential goodness and someone very special he believed he had lost. 

Kritters Thoughts:  A sweet novella with a naughty twist at the end that makes the story even sweeter!  Tom Langdon is a descendant of Mark Twain and decides/must take the train to LA to visit a girlfriend for the holidays, the journey is way more than he could have even imagined!

As a fan of train travel, only from DC to NYC, I absolutely adored how this book gave train travel the Hollywood glamour that it used to have.  The ease of getting on a train without security and the airport hassles and the ability to move around while travelling and meet people - I loved how the story mentioned the perks of train travel.  The other piece that made it feel like old Hollywood was the ability for a pair to meet after so many years and reignite their old flames for each other.

What a great book to curl up with!  It had travelling for the holidays, lots of snow and a little twist at the end!

Rating: perfect to curl up with!
