Review of “The Clause in Christmas” by Rachael Bloome

I was drawn to this book because of the cover and the fact that it is a Christmas book. However, once I started reading it and realized the main female character, Cassie Hayward, loves coffee as much or more than I do, I really started liking this book. I cannot relate to the fact that she does not love Christmas and also had a hard childhood though. The author of this book does a great job of describing the town and secondary characters to the point where I feel like I am there. The town of Poppy Creek definitely sounds like a town I would love to either live in or at least visit especially during the Christmas season. As for the secondary characters, they range from a grumpy old man you could call Scrooge to a really sweet older lady who knits in a rocking chair in Luke Davis’s, the main male character, law office lobby. And on top of it all, you get to see Cassie begin to fall in love with not only Luke but Christmas itself. For anyone who absolutely loves Christmas books, this is the book for you.
