"Keep the crying down below a scream," Anna said. She smiled at Jeff. "We gave you brandy. Rubbed it on your gums. Probably not acceptable these days, but, damn, it shut you up."
"We're not giving the child liquor," Jeff said, his hand wrapping protectively around RJ's head. Then he squinted at his mother, judging her honesty. "You got me drunk to shut me up?"

I don't need to review One Bright Star. Suffice it to say that I was happy to meet Dan, Evan and Jeff again. RJ the toddler (no spoiler, read the blurb) was a sweet extra, the icing on the cake.

Reading this short novella is incentive to look forward to a tranquil and reflective time that's called Christmas. A time that you should spend with your family and loved ones.
Recommended read. In fact, I'd recommend you to read the entire series and don't forget to read the books in order.
