* *   Reviewed by Jessica Weaver

Lou Suffern is a Very Important Executive. Which is why it puzzles even himself when he ends up talking to a homeless man outside his building one cold December morning. On a whim, Lou offers Gabe a job in the company's mail room, finds him suitable clothes, and tries to let his mind move on to more important things: his latest conquest and whether he'll receive an important promotion.

What Lou cannot foresee is the way Gabe will profoundly affect him as a person. A little bit A Christmas Carol mixed with the peppy Irish prose of celebrated author Ahern (P.S. I Love You), The Gift unveils what happens when mystery, family, and a change of heart all collide. This short novel is all-around fun, a great Christmas read to get oneself in the holiday spirit.

So grab the book with the red, ribboned cover and a mug of hot chocolate, and find your favorite warm reading spot - you'll want to finish this one sitting.
