Beloved New York Times
bestselling author Fern Michaels crafts an unforgettable story of lives connected and friendship kindled in an action-packed and gripping novel.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…and for Heather Andrews, security manager at Timberwoods Mall, undoubtedly the busiest. But this Christmas, Heather has more to contend with than frazzled parents and disgruntled Santas. Angela Steinhart, a young woman who designed the mall’s spectacular holiday displays, has had a premonition that tragedy will strike on Christmas Eve. And Angela’s visions have a habit of coming true.
Heather would love to dismiss the warning as holiday stress. But the more she gets to know the quiet, lonely Angela, the more she trusts her. In Lex, her boss, Heather finds an ally—and the glimmer of something more profound. And as the days count down, it will take all of her wits, hope, and unflagging courage to stop someone from destroying the season in one split second…

Review Christmas at Timberwoods By: Fern Michaels
(Tuesday, November 1, 2011)
Reviewer: Melanie Adkins
Heather is facing the busiest time of the year for a mall, Christmas. Being the security manager, Heather handles all kinds of issues for the mall. She's seen just about everything and is prepared to face it once again until a young woman shows up unannounced at her office. Angela, the young woman, is frantic and telling Heather about a situation that will occur at the mall. Heather's unsure at first whether to believe her or not. Angela came across as sincere, but there was something about her. Heather decides to keep the information to herself until Angela shows up again. Now she has no choice but to share the information with her bosses and others at the mall. The story that follows will keep you entertained and on the edge of your seat. Trying to deal with normal Christmas time issues and this added problem plays on everyone's nerves. It brings some together and tears others apart.
I loved this book because you can almost visualize the whole thing at your local mall. You can see in your mind's eye the situations described and the people involved. It's very real life in that way. The characters are well defined and mostly likable people. You'll be rooting for some and booing for others. Fern Michaels hits another one out of the ball park with this book. It will make you look at families, Christmas and your local mall in a whole new way. I felt sad for some of the characters but as this story is so real to life, I understand why these characters were necessary. The only problem I saw was that Angela seems bipolar or manic on top of her other talents. I thought it was unnecessary to portray her in this light. It made it more difficult to accept anything she said as the truth. I think it could have been handled in a different way and still maintained the spirit of the book.
