Forced to travel by train, he begins a journey of rude awakenings, thrilling adventures and holiday. It was nearing Christmas, and Tom’s most pressing dilemma was getting from the East Coast to Los Angeles for the holidays. He had an age-old motivation for the journey; in LA was his girlfriend, Lelia Gibson. She’d started out as a movie actress, but after years of appearing in third-rate horror films she’d begun doing voiceover work.
The Christmas Train I bought on impulse partly because it's Christmastime and I wanted to have the last book I read for 2018 be a Christmas story. I can happily say I made a very good choice. The story is great, the characters are great and the writing is great. Honestly I can't find anything wrong with this book! Seriously! Baldacci does an excellent job of developing all of his characters throughout the book and he makes you remember them well after you finished reading.
The Christmas Train has a great story line and is heartwarming. I am always looking for a light hearted Christmas book around the holidays and I want the audio book so I can listen while I decorate, bake, etc. David Baldacci brings romance, mystery and a wonderful holiday story to The Christmas Train. He also throws in enough to information about train travel to make me want to learn more. I'll most likely listen to it every year at the holidays.

THE train depot was festooned for Christmas. ANNA hung back as her mother bought the train ticket. She’d heard her on the phone last night, cursing out the person who’d told her a child of ten wasn’t allowed to travel on the train without an adult. Garlands looped above the ticket counter. A huge wreath hung over the wide arched entrance to the station’s platforms, and a pair of lighted trees, flocked white and laden with shiny red ornaments, flanked the information and security booth. It’s costing me an extra forty-four dollars for a regular ticket, all because of their stupid rules, she’d raged. Forty-four damn dollars for nothing.
