Publisher's Summary

A heartwarming Christmas story about finding what really matters in life. 

As a first-year law associate, Sydney Batson knows she will be updating her resume by New Year’s if she loses her current case. So when her grandmother gets inexplicably ill while she’s in court, Sydney arranges for a cab to get her to the clinic.

The last thing cab driver Finn Parrish wants is to be saddled with a wheelchair-bound old lady with dementia. But because Miss Callie reminds him of his own mother, whom he failed miserably in her last days, he can’t say no when she keeps calling him for rides. Once a successful gourmet chef, Finn’s biggest concern now is paying his rent, but half the time Callie doesn’t remember to pay him. And as she starts to feel better, she leads him on wild-goose chases to find a Christmas date for her granddaughter.

When Finn meets Sydney, he’s quite sure she’s never needed help finding a date. Does Miss Callie have an ulterior motive, or is this just a mission driven by delusions? He’s willing to do whatever he can to help fulfill Callie’s Christmas wish. He just never expected to be a vital part of it. 

Praise for Catching Christmas:

“The feel-good Christmas book of the year. Blackstock’s tale of love and redemption wrapped in a holiday bow will leave you smiling. Don’t miss Catching Christmas.” (New York Times best-selling author Rachel Hauck) 

“Blackstock’s Catching Christmas is not your average romance. Darling and laugh-out-loud cute, it makes the reader think about the important things in life. I read it in one gulp and wished there was more. Highly recommended!” (Colleen Coble, USA Today best-selling author of the Hope Beach series and the Lavender Tides series) 

“Terri Blackstock’s latest offering touches tender places with its quirky characters and stirring plot. Catching Christmas explores what happens when the paths of a disenchanted Taxi driver collide with that of an overworked attorney. Blackstock weaves a compelling, romantic tale that is sure to get you into the Christmas spirit!” (Denise Hunter, best-selling author of Honeysuckle Dreams

Stand-alone novel.

Hopeful and encouraging Christmas story that will appeal to fans of Hallmark movies.

Delightful Story!

This was the best audible book! I never would have imagined one of my favorite Christian mystery writers could write such an amazing, funny, and enlightening story. I laughed out loud quite a bit at the antics of Miss Callie. I wish for everyone to have or have had a Miss Callie in their life. May Sydney and Finn have a joy filled life remembering all the times Miss Callie seemded to drive them crazy. They didn’t know what they had till they didn’t have it anymore.

Reader is awesome

I enjoyed this cute little story by the master storyteller, Terri Blackstock. I actually listened to it on Audible this time, instead of reading it, and I have to say that Sarah Zimmerman is an incredible narrator!! She really enhanced an already good story!

Great Holiday Listen

This book sparked my imagination and I fell in love with Ms. Callie because of her lovely Southern voice. I will look for more books narrated by Sarah Zimmerman. Catching Christmas illustrates the hope and grace of the Lord especially at Christmas.

Good story - unnecessarily religious

I really enjoyed the premise and the characters involved, and the performance was really well done! My overall enjoyment was impacted by the unnecessary religious overtones and even a bible reading at one point. A lot of the story seemed to be pushing the protagonists into the grandmothers beliefs. While this might not seem like a big deal, it was not at any point in the summary that this was a 'Christian romance' and as a pretty hard core atheist, I would not have bought it if it was more clearly labelled.

A book worth listening to repeatedly.

The story is a wonderful combination of funny and sad. The narration is easy to listen to, and makes the story real and fun. I relisten to this book often.

Another great book.

I am a big fan of this author, she writes lovely stories and they all have a christian element to them which is also lovely. This is a lovely romance but I like the fact that it focuses more on the characters and what there going threw than the actual romance part. Although there was a sad element to this book it was actually quite a funny story in parts especially Kally. I really loved her character and the way she brought the story to life. another good book by a fantastic author.
