Third in Sweet Seasons another Candy-filled treat

The Winter of Candy Canes by Debbie Vigiue is the third book in the Sweet Seasons series starring teenager Candace Thompson. Candy is back working in The Zone, the local amusement park, as one of Santa's elf, a job so terrifying, she'll receive hazard pay. Candy has become a legend at the part after being chased by a crazed killer in The Summer of Cotton Candy and then saving the park from saboteurs in The Fall of Candy Corn. As usual, Candy quickly ends up in the Hospital Zone after a death-defying encounter with vicious children. All of Candy's crew has also returned: Tamara, her obscenely wealthy best friend; Kurt, her not-so-perfect boyfriend, and Josh, her best guy friend who everyone else (including the reader) realizes is Candy's true perfect match, plus the rest of the quirky Zone workers. I really like this Christian YA series. Candy feels so true to life. She's trying to be faithful, and even though she sometimes fails, her huge heart touches everyone around her. A lot of other YA books on the market are a bit dark in their interpretation of teens. I like that Vigiue keeps this fairly light. Even though some of the characters face some serious issues, Candy's biggest worry is having to wear her leg brace to the winter dance. This book doesn't have the hilarious Scooby-Doo-esque mystery the previous book did, and it's obvious Vigiue is gearing up for a more serious final book to end the series. Candy is maturing and growing throughout the series, and she's truly discovering her talents and what that means for her future. I am definitely looking forward to The Spring of Candy Apples!
