The result? Short and sweet, Lauren Hawkeye's Christmas Sanctuary shows that christmas miracles can be possible.
Christmas Sanctuary introduces the alternating POVs of Nick Shepard and Emma Kelly.
Emma's life hasn't been going well lately. Her mother won't listen to her and her fiancé feels like more of a friend than a lover. She finally hits her breaking point, however, when she finds out that her mother and fiancé have been lying to her. Cutting off ties with her mother and fiancé, she flees to Canada in search of the father she never knew she had. What she finds, though, is something she didn't anticipate: a young sculpture named Nick who infuriates yet excites her....
The aspect I loved the most about Christmas Sanctuary was the setting. I always enjoy reading about snowy, Thomas Kinkade like settings, and that's exactly what I got here. It was especially hilarious to see Emma - a southern girl - adjust to the cold weather albeit a few slightly embarrassing hiccups. The scenes involving her storming off into the snow wearing her high heeled boots were some of the best.
I liked the characters in Christmas Sanctuary. My heart broke for Emma. It's bad enough to find out one of your loved ones has been lying to you but to find out it's TWO loved ones...well, that's just a disaster. It was fun to see Emma find her groove again in Christmas Sanctuary. Better yet, I loved how a feisty side in her began to appear. At first, she was quiet, unwilling to speak up when she disagreed; however, as the book continued, she began to speak her mind, no matter the situation. Nick, on the other hand, was gruff and standoffish, yet there was something I still found appealing about him. I didn't like how he was with Emma at first, but as the book continued, he started to redeem himself.
My only problem here involved development. Given the novella's short length, I didn't find the plot lines to be incredibly well developed, especially those involving Emma's family. I wish more of the storyline had been dedicated to Emma's father. The handling of it was very quick and to the point - overshadowed by Emma's developing romance with Nick.
Overall, if you love holiday romances with sweet endings, Christmas Sanctuary is for you! It wasn't my favorite holiday read of the year, but it was still a good weekend read.
