Sweet and sentimental Christmas story not masquerading as high literature.

Another great story by Richard Paul Evans. Alex is intrigued by an anonymous blogger and sets out to find her. Well done.

I enjoyed the book as much as the first one and look forward to the third one. Plenty of action and brave, resourceful teenagers.
