Christmas Wee-view: The Snowflake

2¢ Worth: The Snowflake by Jamie Carie may be my favorite read of the 2011 holiday season. You see despite being a novella of only 209 pages, The Snowflake has it all. It is beautifully written, has complex characters, tender emotions, depth, and manages to stay exciting and move swiftly. When I wasn't holding my breath I was smiling. I declare The Snowflake to be the perfect 5-star holiday read for any fan of Christian Fiction. I would tell you more, but I don't want to give anything away. One thing is for sure, I will be looking for more books by Jamie Carie.

Whippersnappers: There are minor mentions to murder, vengeance, and prostitution.

Warm holiday cheer meter: Low Medium High
