The Christmas Train by David Baldacci

Anyone else like The Christmas Train by David Baldacci? We've read it, but we listen to the audiobook each year while we travel to a Christmas spot.

No, I have not read that one yet. I will have to get a copy.
I just got a copy of "The Christmas Box" by Richard Paul Evans that I am going to read as soon as I am done with the book I am currently reading.

I've never heard of it, but I love to read and I love Christmas books, so I'll look into it, thanks for the suggestion!
