Review: Christmas Angels by Viola Shipman

Christmas Angels
by Viola Shipman
St. Martin's Paperbacks
October 25th

Kate, a single woman in her 30s, works as a designer/decorator for a large interior landscaping company bedecking and bedazzling St. Louis for the holidays. Her work keeps her from spending the holidays with her family and masks the loneliness and pain after a nasty breakup just before Christmas.

Known as "The Christmas Angel" for providing holiday beauty to the city's offices, homes, and malls, Kate's world changes when she decorates the home of a widowed single dad. Both soon realize that life (and love) must go on somehow and that perhaps Christmas (and guardian) angels are all around, if we only choose to see them.


There's nothing I like better then reading Christmas Novella's. They really get me in the mood for the holidays. It's also a great time to try new authors. 

Christmas Angels is a very quick read. I don't usually like to read romances that are written by men, they don't give me what I need in my romances, and I wasn't shocked that I felt that way with Christmas Angel. 

The story is fine, but that's just it. It was only okay. I was missing something. It's much closer to woman's fiction then romance and maybe that's what it's suppose to be. In that case those who love to read women's fiction might really enjoy this story. 

I was just left wanting more. It was light on romance, not to mention the story line was slightly weak. I have to admit I like the blurb better then the story itself. 

If you've read Christmas Angel or any other book by Viola Shipman I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
