In Angel's Fall, Luke Potter is irate at Suzi "Christmas" Carpenter. Her incredible holiday display makes Times Square seem deserted, but even worse to Luke is that her activity chased away his renters. No one warned Luke about Suzi's Christmas extravaganza when he bought this property a few months ago. As he crawls through the tied up traffic to get to his rental property, Luke has since learned she has done this overkill for almost a decade.
Luke's godfather Don Rawlins lives near Suzi and detests her Yuletide show. Don offers Luke a deal. If Luke shuts down Suzi, the latter will fund, with no interest, the capital to open up a video arcade earlier than Luke planned on doing it. Luke agrees and sues Suzi. However, as he becomes acquainted with Suzi Christmas, he begins to fall in love as she melts his heart. However, he failed to inform his beloved he is the complainant in his suit and not Mr. Claus.
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS is a lighthearted romantic romp with an underlying social issue. The story line is amusing though it provides insight on the complex issue of whose individual rights take precedent in a dispute between neighbors. Suzi is a warm, somewhat nutty eccentric who brightens up a neighborhood while Luke is not sure what he wants for Christmas after meeting her. Sheila Rabe illuminates the pre-holiday season with a humorous tale.
