Goodreads:  Five women from different walks of life have become close friends through their book club--enjoying one another's company even more than they enjoy the books. So when the leader of the book club unexpectedly passes away on the cusp of the Christmas season, the four remaining friends are stunned. They relied on Abby for inspiration and motivation. She was the glue that held them together, and they're sure that without her the group can't continue.

When the group gathers "one last time" to open a bag Abby's husband gives them, they find Abby had made each of them an angel ornament for Christmas, crafted especially for each woman and accompanied by a sweet and personal note. Inspired by their beloved friend, together Cassidy, Louisa, Grace, and Belinda decide to commit themselves to becoming Christmas Angels to others in need. Each woman will use her life situation and talents to reach out and help others in her own unique way--little knowing that her own life and her relationships will be changed forever.

Kritters Thoughts:  When I think of a Christmas novella this is the book that comes to mind.  Short and super sweet and just a joy to curl up with for an afternoon.  The book opens up with a book group made up of 5 very different women and one of them unexpectedly dies.  The remaining 4 come together and realize that they will honor their friend during the Christmas season and make an effort to help others in their own unique ways.  

This book was the perfect thing to curl up with for an afternoon and distract me from the overwhelming to do list.  It was easy to get to know the four women and they were so different so it was easy to keep them separate from each other.  I loved how they each found their own way to help others that completely fit in their own personalities.  

I have read all of Melody Carlson's holiday novellas and could say that this one is my favorite!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
