Catching Christmas by Terri Blackstock - Published by Thomas Nelson

My thoughts:  This is certainly one of those "do not miss reading" books. Each of the main characters will fill your heart with love and appreciation. Most of all, you will fall head-over-heals in love the the granny of the story, Miss Callie.

The reluctant rescuer or man-of-the-hour is the cab driver whose heart won't let him let Miss Callie down. And then there is the granddaughter, Sydney, who isn't aware of all that is happening to Grandma Callie because she is caught up in her cutthroat life at the big law firm.

You'll need tissues. You'll laugh. You'll gasp and think, "Whoever would do THAT." And you'll get that wonderful warm, fuzzy, feel-good heartfelt sense that we all seek after when we choose a "Christmas read."

This is special. Don't miss it.

About the book: The first Christmas story from New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Terri Blackstock.

“The feel-good Christmas book of the year. Blackstock’s tale of love and redemption wrapped in a holiday bow will leave you smiling. Don’t miss Catching Christmas.” —New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hauck

Story line: This Year, Christmas Comes Just in Time

As a first-year law associate, Sydney Batson knows she will be updating her resume by New Year’s if she loses her current court case. So when her grandmother gets inexplicably ill while she’s in court, Sydney arranges for a cab to get her to the clinic.

The last thing cab driver Finn Parrish wants is to be saddled with a wheelchair-bound old lady with dementia. But because Miss Callie reminds him of his own mother, whom he failed miserably in her last days, he can’t say no when she keeps calling him for rides. Once a successful gourmet chef, Finn’s biggest concern now is making his rent, but half the time Callie doesn’t remember to pay him. And as she starts to feel better, she leads him on wild goose chases to find a Christmas date for her granddaughter.

When Finn meets Sydney, he’s quite sure that she’s never needed help finding a date. Does Miss Callie have an ulterior motive, or is this just a mission driven by delusions? He’s willing to do whatever he can to help fulfill Callie’s Christmas wish. He just never expected to be a vital part of it.
