reviews: Crisis at Christmas

Readers on Goodreads:

  • Marge gave it four stars and said: Wonderful little story with likeable characters and a hopeful ending. Although it’s complete unto itself, I would love to read more about Oliver and Finn.
  • Sara said: Nine beautiful pages that filled my heart and made me long for so much more of Finn and Oliver.
  • Hart gave it four stars and said: This is a very good but very short slice-of-life Christmas story. … It only took me a few minutes to read, but I know it will stay with me – like everything Julie Bozza writes!
  • Don Bradshaw gave it four stars and said: I’ve read most of Ms. Bozza’s books. This sweet short lived up all of my expectations.
  • Shelley Chastagner gave it four stars and said: The feeling of hope came through from page one. I loved that Oliver saw Finn as a person from the moment he meets him. Not as a homeless person, not as someone less than, just a man. The plans they make together made me smile and left me feeling that all would be right in the end.
