The female lead is strong and determined and keeps in mind what she wants and needs to make her dreams come true. She has a deadline and does not ignore that when her heart gets whisked away.
She plays by the rules and although she hesitates to ask for help when she needs it, she gives her options full consideration. And when all is said and done, she is true to herself.
Can this Elf get a total happy ending?
I was also very happy about the family support both Dahlia and Liam receive.
Their families love them enough to give both space and support
Endearing and delicious!
A Cupcake Christmas
Every relationship has both baggage and secrets. No matter what happens, a relationship will change the people in it.
What happens when one of the people involved has magic that gets more uncontrollable with strong emotions? "...fluttering and trowing wayward magic."
And he can't tell the woman he loves about his magic or the truth about his past?
I connected to the main characters and empathized with their reality vs emotions.
"...her heart urged her not to think. To just feel..."
Both felt committed to an endgame but don't want to miss out on what could be the best life has to offer. A touching story about living in the moment.
"Maybe it was okay that for one night she didn't have her whole life figured out."
The writing flows and the descriptive phrasing made me smile.
"More delicate than a souffle cupcake."
I loved the term for Florian's "year away." What a clever concept!
Dahlia, a Santa's Elf, has 21 days to spend in the SF Bay Area trying to perfect the best toy in the world without using magic or revealing her true form... Can a Holiday fling with the delightful Liam be just her ticket to creativity? Or derail her plan to greatness? Liam swore off dating but his ex is going to be on a rival's arm for the holiday party, so he asked the vivacious secretary Dhalia to the party, but he found more than he bargained for...
Intriguing spin on "hidden agenda/identity" combined with "fling that turned serious" the story is rather delightful to read. And the grand gesture was grand indeed.
Florian is a master-baker-in-training living amongst humans practicing his craft, before going back to North Pole, but his magic has a tendency to blow up, sometimes literally, at the worst of times. Kate needs a cupcake maker to get her business off the floor, and Florian is the perfect fit, but when things started to heat up between them, Florian was seriously considering never going back, while Kate wonders what was Florian hiding...
This one has a bit of "oops" here and there as you don't want exploding cupcake at a kid's party... But it is still fun to read, but it's "hidden agenda/identity" combined with "falling for the boss-lady" this time. Unfortunately there wasn't much of a grand gesture this time, but rather, deus ex machina kinda ending.
Both are kinda urban fantasy with a load of holiday cheer. I like them well enough
A Christmas Fling tells Dahlia's story of creating a toy to become the Master Elf back at the North Pole. Her year of living in the Human world brings her into contact with Liam who she falls in love with. This is a magical and entertaining Christmas story full of interesting characters.
A Cupcake Christmas tells Dahlia's brother Florian's story of learning to become a Master Baker while working in businesses around the world. His latest job brings him into a job with Kate Delore, a cupcake baker who he quickly falls in love with. The characters are colorful and heartwarming.
I wholeheartedly recommend these stories if you would like to get into the Christmas spirit or get that Christmas feeling.
This set are two books that are not only fun to read but are very well written. Both books could easily be made into holiday movies that could be enjoyed year after year. Love the idea of elves coming to the human land to "perfect their crafts.... of course they do have time limits here and magic performed while here...well let's just say it tends to go weirdly. Great 2 book read and I definitely need to grab the other books as well.
