I enjoyed the cosy, homely feel of the story, of the town and of the relationship as the women got to know each other. It was exactly what I wanted from a Christmas story . Dana was a principled woman who needed to heal after recent problems in her life. I liked how she brought out something in Holly that had been missing for a long time. Holly was kind and caring but still scared and unsure of the future. But together they made everything just right. It was a sweet and romantic story with the most enchanting setting. I finished this story in one sitting, as I was enjoying it so much I didn’t want to stop reading. Just the ticket to get you in the festive mood.
I was given this ARC for review.
If Dana hadn't been so clumsy about fixing things and stab herself she wouldn't have met Holly the first day in town. The storyline stayed consistent throughout the book. The main characters were wonderful if not a little hesitant. The fact that this whole book was written without explicitly described sex scenes was refreshing. I for one love to use my imagination and have it challenged when reading a book. Very commendable of the author.
This was a very endearing read for me and I look forward to reading more by this author as well as rereading this story again.
The story has pretty much every last trope I’d expect from one of those super cheesy romantic holiday movies: a big city character transplanted to a small town; a cast of quirky characters; meddling best friends; secrets; irritating exes; and a plot to ruin the town, complete with entangling the protagonists in misunderstandings.
And it was perfect.
I typically like a lot more depth in my stories, but every now and again, I crave pure escapism and beautiful, smart women. As a matter of fact, I got almost *nothing* but beautiful, smart women! The only men in this story are jerks or peripheral, which enhanced the escapism for me. Not that men are bad, but a whole town that mostly seems to be run by and revolve around women sounds pretty awesome, in my opinion.
I loved Dana. She had me in her corner right away, despite the fact that at least some of her problems probably could’ve been resolved with a healthy conversation or two. And she had the luck to escape those problems, something a lot of us only wish we could do.
Holly took a bit more selling. I thought at first she seemed a bit...melodramatic, maybe. On the other hand, her past probably did warrant it a bit, especially in this style of romance. And I think it’s a plus that she didn’t come complete with a cute kid and a dog, so I was willing to see how she developed. I may have underestimated her.
Naturally, in these types of stories, it’s often the townspeople who make or break it. I liked how it was all a bunch of women who were simultaneously caring and nosy. I absolutely adored Lizzie, and if there are ever any more stories about Chestnut Hill, I’d like to hope Lizzie is first in line.
Overall, this was exactly what I expected, nothing more, nothing less. So if you want a Hallmark movie without all the...uh...actual Hallmark, this one will do it.
