Loved this Christmas story by Courtney Walsh. It was great getting to know the different characters and putting the families together. Would have been better if I read the other Sweethaven books first, but not totally necessary. I will go back and read them now, I can enjoy them even if they won't be in order.

Each chapter is told from the character's perspective and gives you another insight into each character's heart. With Christmas magic,scrapbooking,a long awaited reun ...more

As usual, I managed to start with the final installment in a trilogy, bad habit of mine, reading the ending first. I really picked it because it was seasonal. Although I didn't know the back story, it was still a good read. I really enjoyed it and although it is described as a Christian read, it was not preachy. Loved the small town Christmas setting and the group of friends and family who had been estranged and managed to find their way back and form new, even stronger friendships! Already have ...more

Courtney takes us back to charming town of Sweethaven and the group of ladies we have all come to love. It's the holidays and there are all kinds of emotions swirling around. What I have come to enjoy about this series is the loving community, and the camaraderie among the people that live there, they seem to pull together and want the best for each other. There is of course drama, how could there not be with Lila . . even amongst the drama, Christmas magic shows up and touches everyone with it. ...more

Its Thanksgiving in Sweethaven and a group of friends and scrap bookers gather for the holidays. The main characters have been friends since their school days. The story brings us up to date with each of the women and shows us how their lives intermingle and how the friendships strengthen each one as they work through personal problems and issues. This is a fantastic story of love, family, and friendships. I was pulled in from the beginning with the warmth and love that the author brings to the ...more

This final installment was interesting. Definitely had less religion in it. The previous book felt as though it was shoving religion down your throat. I must say that while Jane was more real to me, I just never warmed up to Adele & Campbell. At times this series felt a little too perfect and unrealistic to me.

I received this book for Christmas from my scrapbooking friend and I just loved it. A feel-good book with a good message and a little scrapbooking added in the storyline to bring the messages home. And it gave me some ideas for projects!
I am going to have to go to the Christian bookstore and find some more of her books!

This is the third and final book of this series and I was sad to see it go. As with the other two books I felt a sense of everyone of the characters in me and related to them. I walked away feeling like second chances and forgiveness could change my world.

3.5 stars. This is a really sweet book. Maybe I would have rated it 4 or 5 stars like most folks had I read the first two books of the series and really had invested time with the characters. Having read it as a stand alone though, I still enjoyed it. Makes me want to move so I can enjoy all the perks living in a small town.

This is the third book in a series and I loved the series. The characters and story grab you from the beginning. I am sorry to see the series end. They are great books that tell such a sweet story of love, acceptance and forgiveness in the lives of those around us. I am looking forward to more books by this author.

I really loved this whole series. It just was such a feel good read. So sad it has come to an end. I feel like I really got to know these characters as they became part of my everyday life. Looking forward to the new stories that Courtney will write. She is an amazing storyteller!

The last book in this series did not disappoint. I loved how Courtney explored all of the characters and the ending was perfect. I want to visit Sweethaven and spend time with these people. Great book!

A Sweethaven Christmas is a sweet ending to a wonderful series I wish wasn't ending. Courtney Walsh has given us characters we want for friends set in a town we want to live in. What more could a reader ask for? More! I recommend it highly ~ a perfect Christmas gift.

Although I loved this series, I found it unneccesary to spread this story out over three books. To me, it should have been one book.

I was so sad to finish it!!! This is the last book of the sweet haven series. Courtney wrote that all stories do not have to end with a fairy tale ending. Perfect :)

Third in a series, loved the first one and oddly enough really did not much like the second but loved the third. I wonder if some of it is a difference in me when I read them?

Such a fantastic ending to an amazing series. I usually shy away from faith-based books because they can be a bit too preachy for my taste, but this one was far from that. Loved every word.
