Take a cross-country train trip just before Christmas; add a big movie director, a couple eloping, a love affair rekindled, a cat burglar, a boa constrictor, an avalanche and more. . . What do you get? An entertaining holiday read from David Baldacci. There are many humorous moments and even some danger, although not up to the usual Baldacci standards of peril.

I liked Tom and his experiences on a trip where he set out to follow the steps of Mark Twain and fulfill a last wish of his dying father while also going to meet his current girlfriend for the holidays. The well-placed plot twists were also welcome and expected from Baldacci. Get a hot chocolate or a cappuccino and curl up in your favorite chair for a break from the stress of the season.

This was a sort of a romantic comedy with a twist. Excellent book, with your typical Baldacci surprise at the end. Light reading, very enjoyable and fun.
