(Book) Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright

93

Sappy, yeah. But it’s an uplifting Christmas book. It’s not a religious book, just a feel good story (think Pay It Forward vein). This was a very fast read and made me want to go out and do a good deed for someone. I think we sometimes get so wrapped up in ourselves that we forgot even the smallest of kindnesses.

It was a good book to read this time of the year. Had I read it in February or something, I might have said it was too sappy and had some “flow” issues, but ya know what? It doesn’t matter. It was a very sweet storyline. This would also make a great gift!

Synopsis

Where had it come from? Whose money was it? Was I to spend it? Save it? Pass it on to someone more needy? Above all else, why was I chosen? Certainly there were others, countless others, more needy than me…

Her reporter’s intuition insisted that a remarkable story was on the verge of the front page.

Newspaper reporter Hope Jensen uncovers the remarkable secret behind the “Christmas Jars”, glass jars filled with coins and bills anonymously left for people in need. But along the way, Hope discovers much more than the origin of the jars. When some unexpected news sets off a chain reaction of kindness, Hope’s greatest Christmas Eve wish comes true.

    Speaking of Christmas Jars, I work with Jason F. Wright and thought you’d like knowing he has a new contest on his web site where you can win a free trip-for-two to his hometown in VA, the Shenandoah Valley. All you have to do is mail him a Christmas card! All the details are here:

    What a cute little contest… we actually read this book for my book club – I sent them a note to tell them about it.
