Blackstock (If I Run) delivers a tender and funny yuletide tale of faith, hope, and love. Taxi driver Finn Parrish is outraged that sweet and spunky Miss Callie needs a cab ride to the doctor. Who would leave an elderly woman, obviously ill and confused, alone to manage a doctor’s appointment the week before Christmas? Unwillingly drawn into Callie’s life as she continues to ask for his cab services, Finn comes to appreciate her determination and spirit even as he’s reminded of his failures with his own mother. Finn, meanwhile, is just trying to make rent and can’t decide whether he wants to go back to being a chef. Callie hires her “sweet boy” to taxi her around town so she can find a Christmas date for her granddaughter Sydney, an overworked first-year attorney. Stuck with an impossible case, Sydney feels guilty about not spending more time with her lonely grandmother. As Christmas approaches and Callie’s health wavers again, Sydney and Finn discover that some things matter more than rent or a job. Quirky characters and a wholesome plot will please inspirational readers looking for a heartwarming Christmas story. (Oct.)
