    One thought on “The Christmas Lamp

    1. LadyCalico on said:

      Wow, this novella was so bad and so dumb that it was torture to read. It made me sad that doesn't have "minus" stars to give to a book this bad. It was filled with so many idiocies that I kept asking myself over and over what could the author have been thinking! Reading this book requires the reader to suspend all common sense and reality contact just because the author did. Do not expect events in this story to add up in any semi-sane fashion. It was so disjointed that it read like it was thro [...]

      What a nice short story. I've been struggling with Christmas spirit this year and it was nice to sit down and read a Christmas story in just a few hours that reminds you of the true meaning of Christmas

    3. Maria on said:

      It was a quaint story, and interesting characters. The book went way too fast, I wanted the plot to slow down and let me get to know the characters better. The dynamic between Roni and Jake is delightful and I would love to savor their relationship development more.

    4. Lesa on said:

      First time reading this author and I enjoyed it. Might have to check out some more of her books.

      This book was just okay. I liked the premise of it but the lamp was just weird. I didn't get it.

      You're probably already familiar with the idea, if not the formal definition, of the idiot plot - the plot that would be solved in five minutes if everyone wasn't a, well idiot. I admit that I have real problems with these. You can ask my wife - I'll often end up yelling angry advice and orders at the TV ("Just shoot him!!!"). Unfortunately, The Christmas Lamp has one of the worst idiot plots I've seen in a while. As the book opens, the town of Nativity has set up a town Christmas tree in an int [...]

      The Christmas Lamp is an adorable story of love and tradition. Love when you least expect it and creating new traditions when the old ones are lost. It is a great reminder of just how priceless and important tradition really is. Nativity, Missouri is a small, dying town, jus trying to stay alive. For them, all of their Christmas traditions, right down to the Christmas tree in the middle of the intersection that gets run over at least three times a year, are more important than anything else. WHe [...]

      This plot had a lot of potential, but it sort of fizzled out about halfway through. The actual Christmas lamp felt a bit like an after-thought, and to be honest, I'm not sure which lamp was actually the Christmas lamp because the story involves 3 lamps. It is supposedly a romance, but I'm at a loss as to how the relationship between Roni and Jake moved from purely platonic to romantic because the sparks just weren't there. I do like some chemistry with my romances, and theirs was sadly lacking.T [...]

    10. Jessie Weaver on said:

      I just have to say flat-out as a prologue: novellas kind of bug me. The action moves too fast; you don't get to know the characters well enough; and in a romantic novella, half the time the characters are in love within five minutes of meeting.And all of that is pretty much true of The Christmas Lamp.I do, however, think novellas are somewhat appropriate for Christmas. You're busy, you have eight zillion parties to go to and presents to buy and reindeer ornaments to make out of clothespins. Nove [...]

      I read this in 2011, so I had to try to recall the storyline. At the time I thought it was good, but not great. In reading a few other reviews, I started to remember more things I didn’t like, versus what I did. In the beginning, the storyline and characters were not well defined with any backstory. I remember feeling a bit confused as to who was on which side of the whole “Christmas Tree” debacle. And yes, I thought it was a no-brainer about simply moving the tree to a safe location. One [...]

      This book was drivel. Is there anything lower than 1 star?I kid you not, this story is about a tiny town struggling financially that hires a consultant to review their budget and make changes to try to get them back in the black. The first thing he does? Cancels all of their Christmas traditions, at least, everything that cost them any money. Which makes sense, I suppose. If you're facing the prospect of having to cut the fire department or the annual lights competition, which do you cut? EXCEPT [...]

      Nativity, Missouri is a small town full of Christmas tradition. Tradition that always brought in much needed revenue. The once thriving town is starting to go under due to the pressure of the current economic times. Their Christmas spirit is nowhere to be found.Roni Elliot manages the City Administration office. She is a native resident who loves every tradition and decoration that goes with the city's namesake. She is reluctant and upset when the current financial situation is threatening to de [...]

      A Christmas Novella That Will Capture Your Heart!What a wonderful heartfelt Christmas read. This story will surely tug on your heart strings as it did mine.Nativity is a small town close to being non-existent due to money woes. Will this town survive and thrive once again at the expense of losing the Christmas traditions that are near and dear to the people of Nativity?As I became acquainted with each character in this book, my heart grew in fondness for each and every one. I asked myself a ques [...]

      A fun, short Christmas book about the people who live in Nativity, a small town in Missouri. The town is struggling to survive and they have brought in a consultant to help them. He turns out to be a sort of Scrooge in his attempts to save the town. Roni, the town administrator, is struggling between her great dislike of his reforms and her obvious physical attraction to him.I found myself cheering for the town residents against the consultant. All they wanted to do was to continue with much-lov [...]

      A cute, short (144 page) Christmas story about a little town called Nativity, Missouri and their struggle to stay afloat financially. With the town slowly disappearing, the people will have to come together and remember the true meaning of Christmas and that money is not necessary for it.It was a nice, quick read. I enjoyed that it wasn't overly preachy. Had the typical message of what Christmas was all about. Predictable. The characters were fairly limited and my connection to them was also lim [...]

      Much to the chagrin of the people Jake Brisco comes breezing into the small town of Nativity and with him comes budget cuts including the town’s Christmas tree which gets knocked over and replaced several times during the Christmas season, eating the money in the town’s coffers. He makes Roni bristle with his changes but still she remains more than civil to him, even generous. In the window of the local hardware store, Roni is drawn to a lamp in the window quite reminiscent of the one from t [...]

      Roni's home town of Nativity, Missouri is in financial trouble and Jake Brisco has been hired to get things back in the black. However, with Christmas just around the corner, all the cuts he is proposing are interfering with the towns Christmas traditions. First thing to go was the town Christmas tree. Will the town be able to survive and keep their Christmas spirit, or will they go under like so many of other small towns in the area?I really enjoyed Lori Copelands writting style. And although t [...]

      Oh what fun it is to read these fast and happy tales!Actually I'm surprised that the Christmas novels I'm consuming in my December binge aren't sillier, tackier and trashier -- I expected them all to be more mired in icky gooey romance -- that elimate is there in most of these stories, but it's not as much as I expected. That wonderful lamp the dad won in "A Christmas Story" features prominently in this tale of a Missouri town named Nativity -- who knew -- a story about a leg-shaped lamp in a st [...]

      What I Loved: This was such a short, sweet, uplifting Christmas story about a town finding their Holiday Spirit in spite of some major obstacles. The town was full of people, each with their own personalities that really showed through.What I Liked: The quirky traditions of the town that all found a way to exist in spite of the odds.Why this is a great little holiday read: This was free on Kindle so it didn't cost a thing. It is quick read and will make you smile. It will put you in the holiday [...]

      Ho-ho! It's too early for me to read about Christmas cheers and merry singing, but this book fascinated me by a glimpse. Some of the readers here did not quite get the essence of this novella. The christmas lamp did nothing as an object, but it symbolically represented the light that Nativity needed. Jake Brisco was the one who brought that light with the aim of financially saving the town. On the other hand, Roni Elliot was having confusions about her feelings for jake. Well, it's a cozy book : [...]

    23. Michelle on said:

      This was a cozy Christmas story with the required warm fuzzies and a touch of romance. The title didn't seem to fit the story, though. There was nothing especially profound about this book. The conflict was there but more tender and in the holiday spirit that most. Plus the tension between them was modified by their attraction to each other, which I found endearing. I liked that it wasn't overly done. So if you want a cozy read that begs for hot chocolate and a fireplace to curl up in front of, [...]

    24. Paula Ratcliffe on said:

      Lori Copeland's story The Christmas Lamp isn't overly Christian oriented it talks about the main characters Roni and Jake want to fix the small town of Nativity which has suffered due to the economy. And how to get people to contribute without the flash of winning things, but to do it cause they want too. There is also a love story mixed into it that you would never see. I really liked this book. It's not overly long book, but a great read for this holiday season.

    25. kelley on said:

      The Christmas Lamp was a light-hearted holiday Romance. After reading the synopsis of the book the reader knows that the two main characters are destined to fall in love--despite their difference of opinions about how to save the town. The authors focus is on how important traditions are to this small community, and to the key characters. I enjoyed this short novel and the author's afterword added some depth to the book.

    26. Kelly Hager on said:

      I think this is another example of "books I like because I am completely exhausted and they are easy and sweet." And also, in this case, seasonally appropriate. :)Roni lives and works in Nativity, Missouri. The little town isn't doing so well (not many tourists; businesses are closing) and someone's just arrived to help cut expenditures, a guy named Jake. It's a sweet story and it ends happily. :) It's a little less than realistic, but it's Christmas, so who cares, right? :)

    27. Kristina on said:

      This was a free Kindle download. I was excited to begin my Christmas selections for the holiday season and this was the first one I started with. It was a pretty good read and a cute story. As with most Christmas books, it was a pretty simple storyline without a lot of depth. Going in knowing that, however, I got out of it what I was looking for -an easy-to-read holiday story.

    28. Becki on said:

      If you like trite, cheesy love stories then this is the book for you. I thought it was going to be a sweet story about saving a small town from financial ruin. Instead, it turned into an improbably love story with no clear path from Point A to Point B. I'm glad it was just a novella. Any longer and I would have felt like I had wasted part of my life.

    29. Cindy on said:

      I have read and enjoyed several of Lori Copeland's other novels and was excited to read a Christmas story by her. This was such a disappointment. The characters were not well written and had no depth to them. I was not able like or dislike any characters. The story was so simple that there was the few pages there were in the book were more than enough. I would recommend skipping this book.

    30. Melissa on said:

      This was a very short novella that came in at a scant 120+ pages. I love to read holiday stories at this time of year, but I was left disappointed with this one. I kept getting the impression that so much information was left out of the story as there were huge gaps in the plot. The overall storyline was ok, but the execution left much to be desired.
