I love Christmas. Evergreen Tidings from the Baumgartners is a great subtle Christmas book. Similar to Seven Days of Us, it takes place over Christmas but isn’t really about Christmas. Violet Baumgartner is the matriarch of her family and she takes it very seriously. She is one of those helicopter moms, even though her only daughter is now 30 something. Cerise, the daughter, is about to start her own family – and this is where things get funny. I thought it was a great story with more humor than drama. I liked it a lot and would suggest it over one of those days you’re stuck at home with your family over the holidays.
I received this book from Netgalley.
