I have only read a few of the books in this series. I don’t think it made a difference, though I am glad that I read the previous book (The Christmas Star). This was a wonderful sequel and I believe that it made The Christmas Table a pleasure to read because of the information I learned in The Christmas Star.
This was such a warm and cozy book filled with love, family, faith, hope, and recipes. Ahhh! So delicious recipes! The dual timeline flowed smoothly and pulls you into the story and has you invested in the lives of the characters. The simple kitchen table will bring together family and friends and enrich their lives in many ways. Such wonderful blessings are shared throughout the pages. Your heart will be warmed and your spirit lifted as you experience the love between themen and women who become part of the story.
I am definitely going back and reading the earlier books in the series and will continue to follow them as the author hopefully continues the Christmas Hope series.
