Return to Sender - 4
Holly receives a letter meant for someone else. When she tries to return it to the resident in the nursing home where it was sent, she meets a delightful woman with Alzheimer’s and her handsome grandson. Before she knows it, she’s playing the piano for the home’s Christmas program. This is shaping up to be a Christmas to remember.
This was a cute story that had me smiling several times. However, I didn’t like the first person point of view and would’ve liked to know what Liam was thinking. Because I didn’t, he seemed too shallow, and Holly often seemed too flippant. The ending was also weaker than I’m used to with Janice Thompson’s novels. There were hints at what would happen, but it didn’t actually come about, and I didn’t see the resolution.
Dear Jillian - 5
In helping her grandmother clean out the house, Maegan finds a box of old love letters from Vietnam and learns of her grandmother’s first love. Maegan tracks down the disabled vet her grandmother never heard from again and in the process finds his handsome grandson. The younger couple connives to get the older couple together again, but in the process, they begin to kindle their own romance.
Some of the developments in the novella seemed to happen too quickly, but this was still a lovely story, sweet and refreshing. I found no mistakes, and I enjoyed the short novella.
Dear Santa - 4
Katie Fry gets accepted to a teacher exchange program and goes from Texas to Colorado for the fall semester. She’s impressed by the friendliness she finds in the small town, especially with her neighbors, one of which is a handsome, single dad. When his ex-wife returns, however, things get complicated.
This one had a lot of errors for such a short novella. Here are some examples:
- Katie emailed that her cell phone had died and she would let two friends know her new number when she got a new phone. In the meantime, they’d need to email her. One of the was the owner of the house, so apparently, there wasn’t a landline. Then a little later the same night she considers calling her friend.
- “Marie” was used for “Marcie”
- “with Emily and I”
- “Trent didn’t want to see anyone true from God”
The promise Trent made that he would never take his daughter out of Colorado, not even on vacation, didn’t make sense to me. There was no reason for it on either end. What bothered me most, however, was the way Trent’s divorce was handled. His ex-wife comes back, and he sees both her and Katie for a while and then keeps longing for Katie. The attitude the book portrays doesn’t seem to go with Christ’s teachings.
Dear Author - 5
Janie Mason writes a gossip column about the bachelors in Hopper Falls but hopes this will lead to more serious assignments for the newspaper. She has pegged Alec Dunn despicable for the things his family had done. But when he comes to her rescue, she begins to see he might just be different from his family.
The book started off with sentences so stilted and vague they made it hard to understand. However, this did change and the novella became delightful, one that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Dear Me - 4
Tara Blevins goes back to the place she grew up when her husband divorces her because she couldn’t save their son’s life. Her neighbor at the lodge she inherits turns out to be her first love. They both think the other broke off the relationship but soon discover someone else conspired against them.
This one had a lot of incorrect and misused words. The book was so short, it made the characters seem rather shallow. There should have been more to the ending, and the last part is just a preview of another book.
Love Letter from Vietnam - 5
When her new boyfriend is sent to Vietnam, Chrissy Robinson is disappointed he doesn’t propose as she’d hoped. When she doesn’t hear from him again after one letter and finds out she’s pregnant, it’s hard not to doubt. She contacts his family to learn he’s missing in action, but his rude sister makes telling them her condition too difficult. But how will she ever finish her nursing degree while earning enough money to support her and her baby?
There were some mistakes:
Wrong words used - “He must love her, didn’t she [he]?”
“Snoppy’s Christmas” [Snoopy’s Christmas]
Missing words - “She didn’t have to her.” [tell her]
At first, I didn’t think I would like the story about an unwed mother, but I was wrong. This turned out to be an engaging story that was hard to put down.
Priority Male - 3
Kate Preston moves back home to end up rooming with her nemesis, Raelene, from high school. They both are interested in the hunky mailman, but Beau, Kaye’s first love. also invites her out. Can she forgive him for dropping her at the last minute to take Raelene to the prom?
I found this novelette to be surprisingly shallow and superficial. It sounded very juvenile at times, and metaphors often sounded awkward, To be so short, it also had a lot of errors. For example, “he’s” for he’d, “Ithough” for “Although,” “the” for “they,” and “Kaye” for Raelene” once. It turned out to be a barebones story that read much like a hurried rough draft.
