Emotional, Sweet & Heartfelt | Catching Christmas by Terri Blackstock


This Year, Christmas Comes Just in Time.

As a first-year law associate, Sydney Batson knows she will be updating her resume by New Year’s if she loses her current court case. So when her grandmother gets inexplicably ill while she’s in court, Sydney arranges for a cab to get her to the clinic.

The last thing cab driver Finn Parrish wants is to be saddled with a wheelchair-bound old lady with dementia. But because Miss Callie reminds him of his own mother, whom he failed miserably in her last days, he can’t say no when she keeps calling him for rides. Once a successful gourmet chef, Finn’s biggest concern now is making his rent, but half the time Callie doesn’t remember to pay him. And as she starts to feel better, she leads him on wild goose chases to find a Christmas date for her granddaughter.

When Finn meets Sydney, he’s quite sure that she’s never needed help finding a date. Does Miss Callie have an ulterior motive, or is this just a mission driven by delusions? He’s willing to do whatever he can to help fulfill Callie’s Christmas wish. He just never expected to be a vital part of it.

If you’re in need of one more sweet Christmas book this year, look no further than Terri Blackstock’s Catching Christmas. With quirky characters, entertaining mishaps, and an uplifting reminder of the meaning of the holiday, it’s a perfect story to read this time of year. 

This Christmas season, cab driver Finn Parrish’s biggest concern is paying his rent—until the elderly Miss Callie ends up in his backseat. After a trip to the doctor, Miss Callie wants Finn to take her on all her pre-Christmas errands, and despite his annoyance, she makes it a holiday he’ll never forget. 

Meanwhile, Sydney Batson, a first-year law associate swamped with a most ridiculous case, as well as Miss Callie’s granddaughter, is struggling to juggle all her responsibilities. Yet, like with Finn, Miss Callie finds a way to help her see what’s important. 

An emotional, heartfelt story, Catching Christmas will have you both laughing and tearing up. I absolutely loved it and heartily recommend it to any reader.
