Beau Julander is stretched too thin—raising children, running a business, sitting on every town committee. Running into Molly Shepard, who's arrived for their high-school reunion, he's thrown a life preserver. Molly is happy to pick up the slack, as her role begins to feel like that of a wife and mother, Molly wonders if that's what she's being looking for all along. Sherry Lewis' THE CHRISTMAS WIFE (3) runs smoothly from first page to last, a nice companion on a quiet afternoon.
