Christmas is coming, but Lena Markham isn’t looking forward to it. After being imprisoned on false charges, she’s released—penniless and friendless. When her secondhand red coat lands her a job as Mrs. Santa, she thinks her luck is changing. But can she keep her past a secret?
A delightful story about fresh starts!
Let me be upfront here! I’m am not a reader who get excited about reading Christmas novels once they start appearing in October so bear that in mind as you read this review. Melody Carlson has penned a lovely redemption story as her character Lena Markham struggles to find her place back in society after a stint in prison. Interesting and varied characters abound and their responses to Lena are authentic and run the spectrum from acceptance and understanding to derision and suspicion. That being said, I found it difficult to engage with the story and connect with Lena for a reason I can’t quite determine. Christmas at Harrington’s is a solid story just not the one to pull me into Christmas tales but just might for you.
