Dy's Take

Christmas Jars by Jason Wright

So I have a friend who spent some quality time with a dentist today.  She’s in my book club, too, and I’m fairly certain this book is the cause of her tooth decay.  And I started out inclined to like it; after all, anything would be better than “The Cat Who Came for Christmas”.  As the self-same friend said last year, “It took him TWENTY PAGES to name the frigging cat!”

I wanted to like it because the MC is a writer and I have a weakness for entertainment that features writers; books, movies, you name it.  But the level of coincidence involved in this very thin book, well, it was just waaaayy too far to ask me to suspend my disbelief.  One big coincidence I could believe, maybe a couple small ones, but to have the whole story rely on such a whopper… yea, not so much.

It was a sweet little book, all feel good and crap.  Great plotting and writing it was not.
