Since her husband died three years ago Gaby’s four children have drifted apart, each consumed by the turbulence of their own lives. They haven’t celebrated Christmas together since their father’s death, but when Gaby announces that she’s getting married and that the groom will remain a secret until the wedding day, she may finally be able to bring them home for the holidays. But the wedding isn’t Gaby’s only surprise. She has one more gift for her children, and it could change their lives forever.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Krafcik-schaffer | 2/20/2014

    " Although not a typical James Patterson novel, this book was still really good! This book is more like Sam's Letters to Jennifer or Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas. I do agree it wasn't very Christmasy in that it was only a Christmas wedding but it was still touching none the less. The title was also still fitting of the book. A great reminder of how family is the most important thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katrece | 2/14/2014

    " It was pretty good. I'm proud of myself, lol, for discovering the "mystery" of who she would marry pretty early on in the book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kris Kizer | 2/10/2014

    " I thought this book was just stupid. A woman emotionally abusing and manipulating men by not picking her husband until the wedding day. Children (an 8 year old) doing drugs with no repercussions. A woman with 3 children announcing at a wedding that she was getting divorced with cheers from family and insults hurled at the father, without any consideration of his children in the room. Just stupid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Truckenmiller | 2/3/2014

    " Sort of an odd story line, completely implausible.. but written so well that it draws you in and is just a nice, light, enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth Moffat | 1/23/2014

    " A feel-good and easy to read book. Fans of chick-lit will probably love it. You don't need much concentration to read it, but that's okay, it ambles along quite happily and is a nice light read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Bookaholic:) | 1/21/2014

    " Boring book and the only reason I got through it was because it was an easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cass | 1/14/2014

    " Junk novel that my MIL had lying around. I finished all the other books around so sat down and read it in one sitting. Pretty much just a junk novel, but entertaining enough and he managed to build a nice quirky family of characters in such a short book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steve | 1/11/2014

    " like others that have rated this as a single star - not impressed, I am out of the Patterson books. Especially these collaborations - I liked his earlier versions "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kris | 1/8/2014

    " I enjoyed the setting of the story, but the plot was kind of dumb. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela Jones | 12/1/2013

    " Not my favorite. It seemed to drag on forever with no real climax. Too many quick unthought out endings to story lines. I love James Patterson and have read most of his books. This was a disappointment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 11/29/2013

    " Humorous story, fun light read. Interesting concept of have 3 suitors from which to choose on your wedding day! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia Martin | 11/29/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tonya | 11/23/2013

    " Very well written, but definitely a bit of a strange plot to follow. Enjoyed the book, but not sure I really liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara O'steen | 11/12/2013

    " I always like reading anything by James Patterson. This was one of his "makes-you-feel-good" reads. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Glenda | 11/5/2013

    " boring, can;t believe that Patterson wrote...... "

    " It was kind of corny but very sweet "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maryann | 9/27/2013

    " I really liked this book. It probably isn't a realistic premise, but I liked it anyway. People making smart choices too. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jenny | 7/4/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debbie Nicoletti | 5/8/2013

    " Worst Book I read in 2011.I am not opposed to a sappy Christmas story now and then, but this book is slow and boring from cover to cover! Kept thinking it would pick up...never did. What happened to the old school James Patterson "scare the hell out of you" books? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tina | 5/7/2013

    " Boring. Very quick read if want something for a trip, beach, etc... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana Patterson | 4/11/2013

    " Not his best of this genre. I enjoyed "Sam's Letters to Jennifer" and "Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas" so much more. It was a cute story, but I thought there might be more of a twist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzanne Kerfin | 4/2/2013

    " Cute story, but I just didn't care enough about the characters to really be interested. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 3/17/2013

    " Audiobook: I thought it was a good story. Much different than the usual James Patterson books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi, A Book Fanatic | 10/7/2012

    " Enjoyed this Christmas tale ... Very dynamic, interesting family!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Anderson | 8/22/2012

    " A fun, quick read. I loved the characters even though most of them seemed a little to good too be true. Patterson gave us another great story with this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan R | 5/8/2012

    " Have given up reading most of James Patterson's books due to the violence - this one (like Letters to Jennifer) is totally different. The story is good but a little too unrealistic for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 12/27/2011

    " This was my first James Patterson book it was an easy read, fun, and just a fairy tale to take you away from every day life. The unemployed husband, cancer husband and teenage boy testing drugs were all real. I'll recommend it to anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 11/8/2011

    " James Patterson amazes me that he can write in so many different ways. Sometimes its mystery, romance, sci fi, you just never know. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 11/8/2011

    " Very light reading. The main character, Gaby, is getting married but the groom won't be revealed until Christmas day. All of her children are coming home, each with their own drama. It was entertaining but not the same caliber as his other romances. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 11/8/2011

    " This was a pretty good book. Good speed to it and an easy read. I just wish that the F word wasn't used so much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 11/7/2011

    " Defintely not the typical James Patterson. Just about a typical family...no action, no adventure... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberlee | 11/7/2011

    " Pretty disappointed in this book. Was hoping for something along the lines of Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, but wasn't even close. I expected more out of something by James Patterson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanette | 11/5/2011

    " Easy read. Liked it but not favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 11/5/2011

    " I am a true James Patterson fan, but this book did not live up to my expectations. I found it to be a little sappy even for me, who is often accused of being a hopeless romantic. It is a quick, lighthearted read for someone looking to pass some time. I read it in a few hours. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 11/4/2011

    " A quick read! A good story!
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/4/2011

    " I really wish they would make versions of the books with F words. It makes me angry to take a perfectly great book and ruin it. I loved this book, minus this. I would love to read James Patterson's other love stories, but I feel like I can't. Grrrr. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia | 11/4/2011

    " A sweet story about a family coming together for their mother's wedding that has a twist. No one knows who she's marrying, including the groom. Three men proposed to her and she told them that she will tell them at the wedding who's she's marrying. This was a very fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 11/3/2011

    " A feel good story of a family who come together at Christmas to celebrate a wedding. "
