Christmas in Evergreen is beautifully written by Mary L. Schmidt, with themes spanning love, betrayal, disappointment, healing, and new beginnings. The first-person narrative used made reading this book so much easier and worth anticipating the events. I loved the switch in the narration, especially when we read the innermost thoughts of the characters. Another thing I enjoyed was the suspense. The author’s way of narrating scenarios always kept you on edge and itching to discover what would happen next. Most importantly, I enjoyed the love scenes and the lessons of moving on and leaving the past behind that one can learn. Another thing to look out for is Mary L. Schmidt's unique way of describing places, people, and events which gives you a clear picture of what is happening. Readers who love romances and thrillers will find Christmas in Evergreen an amazing read. It is a book that is definitely worth your time reading.
