The Star in the East by John Adcox and illustrated by Carol Bales Holiday Gift Guide 2022


The Star in the East by John Adcox and illustrated by Carol Bales from The Story Plant Publishing.  Christmas is a season of secrets and miracles. It's also a season of mystery. Throughout their married lives, baseball star Gaspar Bethlen's wife gave him a lovingly crafted mystery every year for Christmas. Solving the clues led him to his present, but the mysteries themselves were the true gift. 

Now, Beth has died, leaving Gasper a wreck of a man. But Beth left behind a clue, the beginning of one final Christmas mystery, and it's much more than either of them expected. The heartbroken man follows a coded message that leads him to an antiquarian bookstore, where he receives an old book the next clue. Soon, Gaspar is caught up in a globetrotting adventure. 

Facing one danger and desperate escape after another, he races to unravel a puzzle involving a priceless jewel, ancient star maps, a noble bloodline, and an astonishing secret that dates all the way back to the very first Christmas. The Star in the East is a winter tale of ancient mystery, secrets, and puzzles, and of breathtaking action and adventure. It's also a heart-shattering story of faith, love, and healing the true Christmas miracle.

My Opinion: This book is full of adventure, imagination, love, and suspense, and I enjoyed it as some books can wonder when they will pick up and be less boring this one did not take long to get into.
