Snapshots of a special Christmas Eve

It is a little weird listening to a Christmas romance during the summer months but this story was filled with all the wonders of Christmas that I couldn't help being delightfully filled with Christmas spirit!

The story takes place on Christmas Eve when almost everyone is looking forward to the special evening service at church. It looks like it may be a white Christmas which can be wonderful yet hazardous for travellers. The plot structure consists of snapshots of the mundane and not so mundane moments with loved ones as they spend time together. But best of all, the characters lives touch each others, some strangers and others friends, in the spirit of Christmas giving and gratitude.

This book is delightful. It is short but brimming with the feel-good factor. It is probably a wonderful book for the busy Christmas season but it is equally wonderful otherwise as well!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

The Magic of Christmas

This was a brief, lovely story about three couples whose lives cross paths one snowy evening before Christmas. Each couple is at a different stage in their relationship-one couple about to have a child-yet you can feel love and tenderness between each couple. This story helps to remind us about what is truly important in life, namely, being kind and loving to one another, and helping others.

The narrator did a good job.

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

Warm and fuzzy, quick holiday listen...

A Christmas Eve in Captain's Point, Captain's Point Stories, Book 61 by Annie Acorn writing as Charlotte Kent was a cute, quick holiday listen. This installment of the series takes place over Christmas Eve, and mainly follows three couples over one snowy evening. It's a sweet listen, and it's as trigger free and as warm and fuzzy as can be. It reminded me of a cute little Christian short story without it technically being a Christian story. Though it was cute and I'm sure that people will love it, it just wasn't really for me. It wasn't a bad or poorly written story, it was just a little to cutesy and fluffy for me. I'm sure that it will be a popular with many listeners though!

Lisa Leslie did a good job narrating this short story. There were a variety of different characters throughout and she did a good job handling them all. As the listener, I was easily able to keep the characters in order because of her narration. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.

Hometown holiday love

Such a heartwarming story, Charlotte Kent and Annie Acorn have captured the lives of those in Captain's Point at Christmas. The holiday spirit is in the air, and there is a lot going on in this town. We meet several couples, each at different stages of their lives, but you can feel the love glue that holds each couple together. There is nothing more magical than new love or the birth of a baby. We are lucky to experience it all in this short story. I especially loved the tow truck drivers, each bringing their expertise to help those in need during the snowstorm on Christmas Eve, and then pulling together to help each other! Charlotte Kent and Annie Acorn have melded this hometown loving feeling across the town, helping each other in times of crisis and pulling together with all the holiday spirit a town can muster.

This is my first narration by Lisa Leslie, and I thoroughly enjoyed her. She brought a wonderful pace along with warm, passionate voicing to each character. It was a pleasure to listen to her.

A close knit small town on Christmas Eve with couples in various stages of love and commitment. Each couple knowing it is the love for each other and their neighbors. The Christmas belief of giving of time and love..consideration of those you love and working all problems to be a stronger family. The narrator did a fantastic job with differing voices, emotions and pacing,
