Somehow Christmas Will Come By: Peggy Blann Phifer

When Molly Dugan’s best friend gets married and leaves St. Paul, Minnesota, to live in Georgia, Molly feels alone and plans a visit to her brother, Patrick, in Las Vegas. Molly had been worried about him ever since his wife died in a tragic boating accident. Grieving she could understand, but she sensed something deeper going on. And she was concerned about Patrick’s six-year-old daughter, Bethany.

So she sets aside her life in St. Paul to spend an indeterminate time in Vegas. When Molly gets there, she finds more than she bargained on. And in the lead-up to Christmas, the situation only gets worse…. 6 year-old Bethany loses her last anchor. How does M
olly convince her that somehow, Christmas will come.

My Review

By: Peggy Blann Phifer

Through all Molly has been through will Christmas come? Molly has lost her job and a friend has gotten married so now she is all alone. She decides to go visit a brother and her niece . Molly has had a lot of loss in her life  but what about her niece Bethany who at age 5 lost her mother. Now she is waiting for her father to come home to celebrate and watch fireworks with her. Will her father return? Molly is so worried about her brother who has been drinking very heavy. She has talked to him about it and he assures her he has it under control. Then there is a knock at the door. Its Trace a coworker at the fire station where her brother works. What  could he possibly want? Is he here to watch fireworks with them?   Great story a page turner.  Thought story line was good.  Great characters. I would read more from this author.
