The story opens with the heroine sitting in the lobby of the ski lodge, anxiously waiting to see if her lover of the prior year will meet her again. Initially, I had some reservations about the opening because it seemed a little too commonplace. However, it really worked as a great hook for this story because the author didn't waste a huge amount of words on maudlin navel-gazing. Instead, she states her dilemma and then gets right to the meat of the story: a jump back in time to when Heather and Sam first met one year before.
I love the basic premise of a vacation affair that precedes true love. The mystery maintained around Sam's true identity and job, including his last name, adds to the basic fun of the story. The descriptions of the setting were rich and detailed on multiple sensory levels so the ski resort almost becomes a secondary character. And speaking of supporting cast—the author kept their numbers and intrusions to a minimum, giving maximum coverage to the romance.
Heather and Sam shared good chemistry. Love scenes were sensual, not overly detailed, but emotionally satisfying. I'd have liked to have seen a little more time devoted to the conclusion. The HEA-ending happened a little too quickly for me and felt rushed. I really enjoyed the author's sense of humor and ability to evoke heartfelt emotions.
A CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER is a great holiday story for readers looking for a delicious whirlwind romance that leads to a destined true love.
When she settled in, she decided to go downstairs for dinner. There was not an available seat to be found, and then Heather meets a handsome stranger named Sam. He offers to share his table with her.
Sam reveals that he is visiting with his brother who thinks Sam is long overdue for a vacation. The two of them enjoy one another's company, and before they know it the dinner is over. Sam makes Heather an offer that she can't refuse, to teach her how to ski in exchange for spending time with him while they are there.
Heather is intrigued by Sam and accepts his offer thinking that she has the better part of the deal. Their vacation days quickly fly by as they spend them together. The day comes when they each much return to their own lives.
A year passes, and Heather finds that she still finds herself thinking of Sam. She wants to reconnect with him by returning to the ski lodge; the same one that she was at year prior. Will Sam also feel the connection and return? Will history repeat itself once more with a different ending?
A CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER is the perfect story to get you in the holiday spirit! Sam and Heather are two lonely souls who found one another and discovered a love each one never anticipated. From page one, I quickly got absorbed in their story with the authors descriptive passages I felt as though I was living each scene with the characters. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to see love rediscovered.
Watching the attraction Sam and Heather felt for each other grow was touching. Although a novella there was plenty of romantic story plus the happily ever after. The book was totally different from what I expected but it actually turned out to be so much more and I never could have predicted the ending. I have not read books by St John previously but will definitely look to read more in the future.
