A Redbird Christmas ★★★☆☆

A Redbird Christmas - Fannie Flagg

I read this almost a month ago and it was so unmemorable that I have already forgotten nearly everything about the plot, except that it was entirely predictable and so unrelentingly sweet that I felt I needed an insulin shot before I was done. However, it was pleasant enough to keep me engaged until the end.

 

Audiobook, read by the author, who does not provide a very polished performance but nevertheless read with warmth and authenticity.
