The Christmas Angel Project by Melody Carlson

Five women from different walks of life have become close friends through their book club--enjoying one another's company even more than they enjoy the books. So when the leader of the book club unexpectedly passes away on the cusp of the Christmas season, the four remaining friends are stunned. They relied on Abby for inspiration and motivation. She was the glue that held them together, and they're sure that without her the group can't continue. 

When the group gathers "one last time" to open a bag Abby's husband gives them, they find Abby had made each of them an angel ornament for Christmas, crafted especially for each woman and accompanied by a sweet and personal note. Inspired by their beloved friend, together Cassidy, Louisa, Grace, and Belinda decide to commit themselves to becoming Christmas Angels to others in need. Each woman will use her life situation and talents to reach out and help others in her own unique way--little knowing that her own life and her relationships will be changed forever.

Fan favorite Melody Carlson is back with another touching Christmas story sure to grip readers' hearts and perhaps inspire them to become Christmas Angels themselves.

Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books (with sales around 6.5 million) for teens, women and children. That's a lot of books, but mostly she considers herself a "storyteller." Her novels range from serious issues like schizophrenia (Finding Alice) to lighter topics like house-flipping (A Mile in My Flip-Flops) but most of the inspiration behind her fiction comes right out of real life. Her young adult novels (Diary of a Teenage Girl, TrueColors etc.) appeal to teenage girls around the world. Her annual Christmas novellas become more popular each year. She's won a number of awards (including Romantic Time's Career Achievement Award, the Rita and the Gold Medallion) and some of her books have been optioned for film/TV. Carlson has two grown sons and makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and yellow Lab dog. To find out more about Melody Carlson, visit her website at

My Review

 I just love stories written by Melody Carlson.  Her characters are wonderful. Feel like you have known them forever. Also know your going to read a great wholesome book. I love Christmas stories also.
This is a story of 5 women who have become from friends and all are different. But one Abby brings them all together for a book club.  Abby helps lead them to answers in their lives she is a great inspiration and a motivator for the group. But she dies unexpectedly .  Now the group feels like how can they go on. Abby was the back bone to the group. Abby's husband finds a gift bag that is to go to the book group from Abby. He delivers it and at the last meeting they are each given a special angel ornament. But there is something special with each angel for each of the ladies and comes at a time when they are in great need for answers. This is such a beautiful story. Get the book and see how Abby is still helping each lady from Heaven with this special Angel she left for them. 5 star
