I have never read any books by this author before but I understand he is more of a mystery/thriller writer.

I really enjoyed the book. It was fast paced and quite beliveable. It does have more of a holiday setting but that does not detract from the book.

I would recommend it. Maybe good for a Book Club.

This book was a sappy, inane romantic mystery with shallow & unlikeable characters. If you want to read something GOOD by Baldacci, then read Wish You Well.

I enjoyed this book and read it for a book club. Others didn't like it because they expected more suspense. I thought the characters were very amusing.

This is a good fun read. Lost loves, actors and writers and an historic train ride. This is good reading with a few twists. And some very notable characters well written. And we end with a major avalance, near death and weddings. Worth the time, certainly.

Great book! This was my first David Baldacci book recommended by a couple friends. It was well worth the read. David is a good writer and easily draws you in making you want to know the ending. The story is a great one with a few twists and turns I totally wasn't expecting.

This a sweet story to read for Christmas. It's about a man who makes a promise to his dying father to take a train ride cross country. He does this and much more during Christmas. It's very uplifting and dare I say it but magical as well.
