Christmas by Accident

by Camron Wright

Overall Book Review:

Christmas by Accident is the perfect read to get in the holiday spirit! Written by bestselling author Camron Wright, this pocket-sized paperback will captivate and charm readers. Chapters are narrated by three amiable main characters — Mannie, Abby and Carter. Each chapter in Christmas by Accident is fast-paced and often end in cliffhangers, which make the novel nearly impossible to put down. The romantic relationship between Abby and Carter is sweet and affectionate. Wright is a descriptive writer, including lots of vivid detail and figurative language. Many pop culture references are included, with sly humor used to lighten the heavier parts of the plot. A satisfying ending makes Christmas by Accident not only entertaining, but an inspiring and festive read. Pick up this holiday tale today!

About the Reviewer

My mother was the one who sparked my love of books. Long before school instruction, she sat me down and taught me to read. My childhood was filled with trips to the library and bookmobile to find great books. My first loves were The Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder and the Pippi Longstocking series by Astrid Lingren. Now as a mom and speech pathologist, I am constantly looking for good, clean books to use at home and in therapy. I enjoy reading many different genres, but my favorites are usually historical fiction. I married my best friend, the “boy next door”, and we have a beautiful little girl who we often find sprawled out on the floor, flipping through picture books. Together our family likes to swim, run and play tennis. Besides reading, I also love to bake, garden and travel.
