Rating: 4 Cups
Tabitha Durst feels like the black sheep of the family, unable to please her family with anything she does.
Jim Stoddard is smitten with Tabitha and hopes to make her part of his life.
When Tabitha runs late for her sister Carly’s party, she knows that the family frowns upon tardiness. Bumping into Jim only makes matters worse, until he shows up at the party with a bottle of wine. It could be a new lease on life or her worse nightmare. It has been a long time since she has felt such a stirring sensation with a man. Jim is the black sheep of his family, with no desire to go into the wine business. When he greets Tabitha at the party he is glad to make her acquaintance again. She is just the person that he has been searching for to spend his life. With a controlling family and issues that ensue with many obstacles, he can only hope that he can convince her that they can have something together, if she will only allow him the time.
A Taste of Christmas is an affectionate tale that brings sparkle to the holiday season. Tabitha and Jim are refreshing and make the story enjoyable. Tabitha’s emotions interact in the pages, allowing the reader to feel the confused family that welcome her daily, while allowing the reader to feel the pangs of indignation within the pages. Ms. McKenzie pens a tale that makes one sympathize for Tabitha while making Jim a passionate hero. She creates splendid conversation that keeps the story consistent as Jim and Tabitha work on their relationship. This is a wonderful story that blends romance and difficulty within families to bring love in a special way.
