    Y'all! I knew Terri Blackstock was a master storyteller with suspense thrillers, but I had no idea that she could write romantic chic lit. This book had me literally laughing out loud. I was cracking up at Finn, the hero of this book. Then, I was crying real tears down my cheeks at the gymn walking on the treadmill. I couldn't help it. This book was an absolute delight to read. I could not put it down. This is an endearing Christmas story with the message of Jesus with a HEA. This story will tickle your funny bone and warm your heart. My conclusion is that Terri Blackstock can write anything. No matter if it's a spine chilling suspense or a sweet and inspirational romance.

    *I was given as copy of this book by Thomas Nelson Publishers and was under no obligation to leave a review. This is my honest opinion.

    Finn Parish is a cab driver. Miss Callie is a lady with dementia in a wheelchair. She calls for a cab one day and the adventures begin. Finn doesn't really want to be saddled with this old lady but she also reminds him of his mother.

    It is Sydney Batson's first year as a law student. When her grandmother gets ill unexpectedly while she has to be in court, she reluctantly sends her in a cab to the clinic.

    I don't want to give any spoilers so I will stop there.

    I had to sigh when Catching Christmas was over. I really didn't want it to end. I don't know what better compliment you can pay an author. I laughed. I cried. I enjoyed every minute with Callie, Sydney and Finn. I truly enjoyed all of these characters. I thought Catching Christmas was a sweet novella that left me with a happy feeling that I read it. I would recommend it to anyone needing a dose of Christmas cheer. I also liked that there are discussion questions in the back of the book and it is well worth the reader's time to read the author's note and acknowledgements for Catching Christmas.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.

    I devoured this book and was left wanting more. I laughed and cried I was blown away.

    The best romance you will read this holiday season.

    If you only buy one Christmas book this year, This is the one you will want to read and reread each year.

    I gave this book 5 stars two times. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

    Christmas fiction is typically ultra light, and so full of sentimental fluff and serendipity that I rarely award more than three stars - with an occasional bump to four for good measure. Basically, it's all really chick-lit with a double espresso shot of romance and good cheer.

    Terri Blackstock, however, has penned a true FIVE STAR gem. A gem that will surely be appealing to a wide readership across every boundary: age, gender, race, nationality, urban, rural, or as far away as the international

    Christmas fiction is typically ultra light, and so full of sentimental fluff and serendipity that I rarely award more than three stars - with an occasional bump to four for good measure. Basically, it's all really chick-lit with a double espresso shot of romance and good cheer.

    Terri Blackstock, however, has penned a true FIVE STAR gem. A gem that will surely be appealing to a wide readership across every boundary: age, gender, race, nationality, urban, rural, or as far away as the international space station.

    Characters: a snarky, sarcastic cab driver who voraciously loathes UBER, but is good-hearted at his core; a pleasant, but unfiltered octogenarian grammy who is on a mission . . . if she can just remember what it is; a hellbent-on-making-partner lawyer stuck in a seemingly impossible situation of career vs caregiving.

    Setting: Mid-sized city somewhere in Missouri.

    Storyline: The book jacket says just enough. Sometimes the less said, the better; let discovery be your guide - not preconceived expectation. But here's my takeaway:

    Simply put: I laughed, I cried, I was briefly appalled, and fleetingly overcome with sorrow, and a smidgen of fear before falling into a sense of satiated peace; basically, I went through a whole host of emotions.

    I simply fell in love with all the main characters. Not because they were perfectly beautiful and flawless or grand. Quite the opposite. They were perfectly real, in a life is messy and sometimes unlovely sort of way.

    Christmas isn't about happily ever after and Hollywood improbable miracles where beautiful people always win, bad guys always get what they deserve, romance lurks around every corner, and everything falls into place all tied up neatly in a big serendipitous bow. No. Christmas is about making peace with your past, loving your neighbors, letting go of long-held guilt and grudges, going the extra mile - not because you have to but it's simply the right thing to do; all because we've accepted the gift of God's grace given over 3,000 years ago. The One and only gift that keeps on giving - long after we're gone.

    In this sweet, heart-tugging story, readers will examine what truly matters at Christmas. Woven with humor and told in the first person narrative, Catching Christmas follows the exploits of an elderly lady named Callie and her “driver”, Finn.

    There is a light thread of romance in this story, yet it appears fairly late to the novel, so the focus of this book is really on the relationship that develops between Finn, who is the cab driver, and Callie, the elderly lady who is definitely experiencing

    There is a light thread of romance in this story, yet it appears fairly late to the novel, so the focus of this book is really on the relationship that develops between Finn, who is the cab driver, and Callie, the elderly lady who is definitely experiencing memory problems. Throw in Sydney, a harried and overworked granddaughter, and it is a recipe for an emotional and memorable Christmas season.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

    Catching Christmas was such a cute read! I've liked several of Terri Blackstock's suspense novels, so I was curious to see how enjoyable her first Christmas story would be...I was pleasantly surprised and really liked the book.

    The characters were realistic and I liked the message of the book. The grandma was awesome and I loved how she played matchmaker for her granddaughter. The book did get a little emotional at times, but that made it believable.

    The ending was fitting and I definite

    This was such a sweet book! I loved all the characters and the plot was 👍🎄💚

    The synopsis sounded interesting. However, I wasn't impressed.

    1.) It was written in first person present tense. From two different perspectives. Yeah, Finn and Sidney both had chapters "written by them" and since it was present tense, it was a little difficult to feel any connection to them.

    2.) It was sad and somewhat depressing to read. Not what I really want when I pick up a Christmas book.

    2.) It was sad and somewhat depressing to read. Not what I really want when I pick up a Christmas book.

    3.) The Christianity, besides being vague and not biblical, was stuck in there in an odd way. Sort of like it had to be thrown in somehow to make it a "christian" book.

    4.) I found myself wanting to push Sidney aside at work and talk for her because her bosses were jerks, and so was the guy she was supposedly defending in court.

    5.)

    6.) I didn't really like Finn or Sidney all that much. And when you don't really like the main characters, well, the story just isn't good.

    I did like Callie. And I was so glad that so many others did too.

    I don't recommend this book unless you enjoy the things I don't, and won't be reading it again.
