Lakeshore Christmas - Lakeshore Chronicles, Bk 6 - Audio CD - Abridged Author:Susan Wiggs, Joyce Bean (Narrator) Maureen Davenport finally gets to direct Avalon's annual holiday pageant, and she's determined to make it truly spectacular. But former child star Eddie Haven is turning out to be a tattooed lump of coal in her stocking. Eddie can't stand Christmas, but a judge's court order has landed him right in the middle of the merrymaking. ... more »He and Maureen spar over every detail of the pageant, from casting troubled kids to Eddie's original -- and distinctly untraditional -- music.
Is he sabotaging the performance to spite her, or is she forcing the show into her storybook-perfect notion of Christmas? And is it possible that they're falling in love?
I love the Lakeshore Chronicles series, but this story fell short. Wiggs made the main character, Maureen, so boring the romance between her and former child-star Eddie quite unbelievable. The pageant auditions, and whole "Angel of the Lord" take was mega-cheesy. And you can get away with cheesy for Christmas, but this was a little much.
