Though the book is set in modern day, it is set pre-Covid. And what a wonderful escape from our 2020 world this story provided.
Hannah reluctantly heads from Michigan to Australia to care for her injured grandmother. Hannah is in love with her Christmassy hometown, and is none too pleased to have been tapped for nurse (and spy) duty for a grandmother she hardly knows. To top it off, it’s December, and Hannah loves the thought of Christmas with her family, best friend, and her boyfriend who has recently moved back to town. With apartment hunting and maybe an engagement ring in her future, Hannah has a lot of ties to bind her to the US.
But duty calls, and authors Diane Michaels and Kirsty McManus bring us along for what feels like an immersive vacation in Noosa, Australia. But while we get to kick back and enjoy the lush, tropical surroundings, and the colorful animals and people, Hannah has a bit of a harder time.
I VERY MUCH appreciate that the story of our girl-meets-boy, while awkward, does not contain the awful trope of girl and boy instantly hating each other, and then working through that hate while harboring secret crushes on each other.
I like the way most of the characters treated each other with respect and kindness, even when their viewpoints or philosophies or goals were at odds.
This story was a fun, soothing balm for those of us in need. Whether you love snowy climes, or warm breezes, “A Christmas Rescue” might be just what you need, this holiday season, or any season.
The heroine is a chart-loving planner who suddenly finds herself jetting to the other end of the world to miss all the great, cozy winter fun leading up to a family Christmas in Michigan. Her Australian grandmother is definitely not what she expected and Hannah finds herself grudgingly embracing the sun, heat and lifestyle in small-town coastal Australia.
This story, despite some romantic setbacks for Hannah and health issues for Granny Sheila, is warm, light, upbeat and filled with critters and characters who make living the laid back life in Australia very appealing. Neither the female nor male lead is perfect. He's disorganized and forgetful; she's a procrastinator and a bit obtuse, especially when it comes to planning a joint future before she gets buy-in from her Michigan man! But the leads are goodhearted and sweet together.
A good, short holiday romance by two of my go-to authors for fun romances with can-do heroines.
I was so excited to read this one. Hannah has a structured life and has moved back home but anticipates getting engaged soon and starting the life she has always pictured with her long term boyfriend.
As we all know, plans change! Hannah goes to Australia to help her grandmother, Sheila, as she rehabs from surgery. Sheila is a fun one and Hannah becomes part of her grandmother’s world by helping the very handsome and caring next door neighbor care for animals at his animal shelter.
I loved this story! It starts on Thanksgiving and goes through Christmas so you get a true holiday vibe. Australia has always been on my bucket list to visit so the setting and the people in the story are just wonderful! This is a quick read and an uplifting read so add this one to your holiday list!!
