Christmas by Accident


Christmas by Accident by Cameron Wright

Carter is an insurance adjuster whose longing for creative expression spills over sometimes into his accident reports. Abby works for her adoptive father, Uncle Mannie, in the family bookstore, the ReadMore Café. Carter barely tolerates Christmas; Abby loves it. She can’t wait past October to build her favorite display, the annual Christmas book tree stack, which Carter despises.

When an automobile accident throws Carter and Abby together, Uncle Mannie, who is harboring secrets of his own, sees a chance for lasting happiness for his little girl. But there are so many hurdles, and not much time left. Will this Christmas deliver the miracle everyone is hoping for? Where love and Christmas are concerned, there are no accidents.

My Review

4 Stars

Abby lost her parents when she was young and her Uncle Mannie has raised her. She helps him run the ReadMore Café for him. Then Mannie becomes sick and is in the hospital. On the way there Abby gets in a car accident and totals her car. She has some troubles with the claim and doesn’t want to worry Mannie about it so she starts to investigate the claims adjuster to ask for help.

Carter is an insurance adjuster that has a bad habit of creatively enhancing the stories on the claims. He does this one too many times and ends up fired. Abby finds him and asks him to look into her closed claim. In return Carter wants her to read his novel in works and give him some pointers.

This leads to a budding romance between Carter and Abby as they discuss the goods and bads of Christmas, help with Mannie’s illness, and start to get closer. This is a cute story about two people coming together. Although it has reference to Christmas is to not one of those cutesy Hallmark movies. Carter hates Christmas but Abby slowly brings him around. Of course Mannie stole the show and breaks your heart at the same time.

If you like Christmasy romances I think you would like this story. It’s not what I was expecting but still a good read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Shadow Mountain Publishing for the opportunity to read and share this book.
