Product Description

Product Description

A small town. An eccentric newcomer. And an unusual store that is more than meets the eye. In this charming story full of sweet surprises, find out what happens when curiosity gets the best of people and they enter the Christmas Shoppe.

From the Inside Flap

The small town of Parrish Springs is not quite ready for Matilda Honeycutt. A strange woman with scraggly hair and jewelry that jangles as she walks, Matilda keeps busy stocking and arranging her new shop on the town's quaint and lovely Main Street. When rumors start to fly about what might be going on behind the papered-up windows and the locked door, the image-conscious residents start looking for a way to get this woman and her wares out of their town before Christmas.

But Matilda Honeycutt has a little something for each one of them sitting on those cluttered shelves, just waiting to be discovered.

Format: Hardcover
This book is interesting for the fact that it contain a story that is set up during the Christmas season in a small town. The characters are interesting and you get feel/see the magic through the pages of it.

The story line is quite simple. A stranger arrives to town and purchase a building in the downtown core. When the other store owners in that section realized what she is doing with the building, there is an uproar. They want her out of there. But what they didn't expect in exchange was the healing process that Matilda Honeycutt has started in the citizen of the town who comes through the door of The Christmas Shoppe.

And when Christmas comes around, Matilda can't be found anywhere.... Makes you wonder if she wasn't an angel after all.

I enjoyed reading this refreshing book though at times it seemed too good to be true. I guess part of me would like to have a shop like this in the city where I could discover old memories hidden in my soul and start a healing process. The stories behind each character is quite interesting though I have found that some of these stories could use a little bit more detailed information. For example, at some point someone offers to purchase the newspaper of the town and the owner is seriously thinking about it. But the two people don't talk to each other. The whole idea is mentioned through a third party. Little disparities like this can bother some readers.

Christmas type of book are not for everyone but I find that every year it is good to read at least one.

"The Christmas Shoppe"
By Melody Carlson
This best selling author has done it again! Melody, the author of "Christmas at Harrington's", has again succeeded in writing a touching Christmas tale, which makes you think- where has the real meaning of Christmas gone? Her ability to draw you into the lives of the characters, some quirky, different, and others mean and nasty, is outstanding.

The setting of the book is in the small town of Parrish Springs. It has the typical small town atmosphere and is described in great detail as a sleepy little place, where the stores are struggling to keep going in these times. Then upon the scene, enters a strange looking, odd acting character, Matilda. She has managed to purchase a large , empty building in the core of the town, one which has been sought after by a wealthy major official , who takes her arrival in a very negative manner. Mathilda has the town in a complete frenzy of wondering what on earth she is doing in this shop. Just to look at her, amazes the townspeople. Scraggly hair, jangly jewelry, strange clothing! AND the store appears to be filled with junk!!

The story continues to tell how the other store owners start rumors and strive to get rid of this eye sore of a "shoppe". However, to their surprise, they discover that Matilda has something there, that each one of them "needs"! BUT they do not know it!!

Melody uses delightful verses throughout the book- that Matilda displays in her stores that make you really think. What is Christmas really about and what changes do all of us need to make?
This is a quick to read Christmas story that we all should read and take a quick retake of how we live and celebrate the season.
An enjoyable book!!

Format: Hardcover
The Christmas Shoppe is a story filled with wonder and heart-warming moments. Matilda is quirky and special, focused on what really matters and unworried about the troubles we so commonly let plague us. Who she is, exactly, is never revealed in the story - an angel? A miracle worker? Who knows? But to the flawed residents of Parrish Springs, in the end it doesn't really matter, as each of them is drawn into her strange shop and emerge utterly changed. The author doesn't set out to develop deep, complex characters, but in this book it is a strength as the simple story ends up conveying a profound truth of God's love and the power of forgiveness. All of Carlson's characters, from Tommy the newspaper owner to Suzanne the city manager to the greedy Councilman Snider, will find a place in your heart by the end of the book. Despite it's simplicity, the story moved along well and was completely engaging, and this book is well worth the read.

I encourage you to pick up this book when you need a quick read that will entertain while reminding of you of the more important things in life. I strongly recommend this book and give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

My Review:

Matilda Honeycutt is new in town and has purchased the old Barton building with an apartment upstairs. And no one seemed to know where Matilda came from or exactly when she came to town. Councilman George Snider thought she looked like a bag lady. Matilda was an older woman with brown eyes, gray hair but her face seemed young.

Councilman Snider was extremely angry that he lost the bid to purchase the old Barton building to Matilda and was trying to find a loop-hole to toss her out! He felt she was "up to no good". George tells newspaper man Tommy Thompson that: "...this strange broad sneaks into town with no friends, no connections, no nothing. She doesn't seem to know a single soul, doesn't even have a residence here". George's housekeeper's sister works at the Golden Door Motel which Matilda has been staying and says she is: "one weird wacko".
