I was given a print copy of this book in exchange for my honest review by the literary publicity firm, JKS Communications
You can never go home again, except at the holidays–that’s the premise of Gary Reilly’s Home for the Holidays. Brendan ‘Murph’ Murphy leaves the comforts of his Denver, CO cab-driving life for a short trip home to Wichita, KS to reconnect with his family.
In true Murph form, he stumbles across something else and gets to the bottom of helping a down and out friend get back into the job market. And have a turn at being Santa Claus at his Catholic alma mater.
Home for the Holidays is Murph’s fourth published adventure, and it does not disappoint. Murph’s Christmas adventure is delightful, and full of the comedic anecdotes and colorful descriptions readers of this series have come to expect.
My only regret with this book is that it had to end. The pacing and style are true to Reilly’s already-established ‘Murph’ series style and are a treat. I ended up reading this book out of order, but the great thing about the series is that they can be read independently of one another (however, I thoroughly recommend that you catch up with the whole series).
I cannot say enough amazing things about these books–I am saddened that #GaryReilly passed away, but I am happy the folks at JKS Communications have given these life. Check out the rest of the blog tour here. My entry is still under the old site, but nonetheless totally worth it.
Would you read Gary Reilly? Want an opportunity? Let me know if you’re interested in Home for the Holidays and I’ll see what I can do! 😉
Stay tuned for tomorrow when I talk about another great book in this series!
