The Town Around the Christmas Tree: Jacob's Message by J.R. Wirth

The Town Around The Christmas Tree: Jacob’s Message is book five of the Twisted Family Holiday series. It brings the series full circle with the heroine, Hailey Jade, and her cousin, Isaiah, having another Christmas adventure. This story takes the two out of their grandfather’s home, on a walk, and finding mayhem that needs to be addressed, before they can enjoy their Christmas Eve celebration. 
While they wait to replicate the town beneath the Christmas tree they encounter an unnatural phenomenon, and then witness Harper having a grown-up conversation, but no one is present. They get spooked and think they’re in for another Christmas disaster. Enter Jacob who is the son of their grandfather’s girlfriend. And he has become Hailey’s BFF. Jacob arrived for the Christmas celebration, but without his mother, which seems weird but they carry on about their day while they wait for her to arrive. 
After the town is put together exactly the way the six cousins remember, from the last year, Jacob invites Hailey to go for a walk. So the older kids—Hailey, Isaiah, Bubba and Jacob, go on an adventurous-walk that, again, teaches them to remember the magic and meaning of Christmas. 

Whether it is experienced alone—or following the Town Beneath The Christmas Tree—The Town Around the Christmas Tree: Jacob’s Message is a great read for children and adults alike; and it’s destined to be a new classic Christmas tale.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Town Around the Christmas Tree, Jacob's Message is the story about a family gathering on Christmas Eve, told in Charles Dickens fashion but with very contemporary characters. It is the continuation of the Town Under the Christmas Tree, where the same cousins had quite an adventure in a faraway, dangerous place and although reading the first one gives you familiarity and background, I think story can stand alone. The solid, believable characters pull you in and Jacob's message will touch your heart. I highly recommend this Christmas story. JR Wirth does not disappoint.
