Blog Tour: Keri's Christmas Wish by Pamela S. Thibodeaux

Christian Theme:
--> The power of faith to heal 

Tagline:
Can Keri get past her angst over Christ’s birth and enjoy the Christmas season?

Blurb:
For as long as she can remember, Keri Jackson has despised the hype and commercialism around Christmas so much she seldom enjoys the holiday. Will she get her wish and be free of the angst to truly enjoy Christmas this year?

A devout Christian at heart, Jeremy Hinton, a Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Spiritual Mentor and Energy Medicine Practitioner has studied all of the world’s religions and homeopathic healing modalities. But when a rare bacterial infection threatens the life of the woman he loves, will all of his faith and training be for naught?


Find out in Keri’s Christmas Wish

Excerpt: An image began to form in her mind…a young girl being led around on a horse by an ethereal figure. As the trio came closer, Keri felt as though she looked in a mirror. Her heart swelled. Tears clogged her throat, filled her eyes, and slipped down her cheeks.

“Hi, Keri!”

The childlike voice reverberated through her entire body. Keri smiled and whispered, “Hello.”

Excitement lit the youngster’s eyes. Brilliant colors vibrated around her. “Do you know who I am?”

“You’re me as a little girl. That’s Spark, my horse who died when I was a teenager.”

Spark nodded his head as the girl giggled—a joyous melody that rang through the atmosphere. “No, silly, I’m your big sister. Only, I didn’t live very long.”

Tension seeped in, a mixture of shock and awe.

“Don’t be afraid. Ask mom.”


And then the mirage disappeared.
Keri's Christmas Wish is available at Amazon.

Patricia's thoughts: 
I was totally enchanted with this story of a young woman's journey to come to terms with her negativity toward the Christmas season. While she was raised in a loving Christian family, modern-day commercialism has soured her feelings for the season. Her boyfriend Jeremy, a psychotherapist with a strong personal faith, encourages her to journal about her feelings. 
This story is well-written. Jenna's character arc is well-described and believable. Jeremy is a patient, steadfast mentor, though he seems a bit finicky for my taste.
