This book centers around Aubri Reynolds who is the head buyer of Christmas Decorations for the department store. Aubri has carefully planned her trip to Rothenburg, Germany, a location known for the most distinctive and largest Christmas stores in the world.
What Aubri doesn't count on is meeting Ryker the manager of Weihnachten Haus. He is everything she has ever wanted in a man but both are very settled in their lives with their jobs. Will either be willing the ultimate sacrifice and move to the other side of the world for the other?
I truly loved this book and would love to have Aubri's job! The connection is apparent right from the start and I can't imagine how difficult Ryker's life has become and completely understand why he is so comfortable where he is. This book is heartwarming and makes you look at what is most important.
I truly love what Mr.Simon is trying to do for the girls and commend his idea of living while you can.
The inspiration from within this novella is two-fold with approaches to life after two different kinds of grief– after a parent’s loss of a child and after a tragic accident, a young man’s loss of vision. Mr. Simon and Ryker Forst could have become bitter through the circumstances of their life journeys. Each man could have wallowed in grief. Instead, Mr. Simon has turned the grief of the loss of his young daughter into a gift of love and living life for the young women that became like daughters to him through their support in his darkest hours of grief. Ryker Forst has chosen to “never say never” and to become as self-sufficient as possible not only so he can help continue the legacy of the family business but to challenge himself to live fully every day. What an extraordinary way to develop the “Places to See” series with a story of inspiration to be open to all the possibilities that life and loving have to offer. Some haven’t had the connection to a mentor or a friend to help build their self-esteem. Some only see obstacles and detours on their life journey. Reading this story might also give some the hope and strength one needs to find within to believe in the possibilities that change offers even change that can only begin after the loss of a loved one or after a tragic accident.
Based on the author’s dedication, “Many thanks to all the wonderful people of Germany who made our trip an enjoyable and memory filled adventure” I would guess the exquisite details of this story’s adventure is due to the author’s own experiences during a trip to Germany. Whether the trip to Germany was created for the author’s research or the story was created from the author’s memories of a wonderful vacation in Germany, readers are treated to intricacies that can only be captured through first-hand experiences.
In addition to the intricacies of what becomes Aubri’s adventure in Germany, there is the author’s talent of expressive writing that brings vivid visualization for the reader’s imagination. This is a glimpse of one of my favorites from this story: “Gently, like the brush of a butterfly’s wing, he drew his index finger over her eyebrow, across her eye, cheek and then down across her lips.”
Mr. Simon says, ““The thing which puts me at peace is knowing she (his daughter Janelle) lived before she died. She spent as much time as she was able with her family, she traveled the world, and told me she fell in love. This is what I want for you.” Gifting “Kisses and Strudel” could be your most meaningful present of the holiday season if you’d like to give someone a heartwarming read to comfort, to inspire, and to quietly and encouragingly express “step outside your comfort zone” and “every day is a new day.” Read Aubri’s story and see for yourself. It’s a story to share again and again – “You can change something that you aren’t happy with at any time.”
JENNIFER CONNER IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS AND HER BOOKS DO NOT DISAPPOINT. SHE DOES AN EXCELLENT JOB WITH HER STORY LINES AND CHARACTERS. HER CHARACTERS ARE SO BELIEVABLE AND REAL. WITH REAL EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS. THE AUTHOR DID AN EXCELLENT JOB DESCRIBING GERMANY. IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE I REALLY WAS THERE. I LOVED THE CONNECTION BETWEEN AUBRI AND RYKER. RYKER IS PRETTY AMAZING. HE IS BLIND AND GETS AROUND REALLY GOOD. AT FIRST, I DIDN'T REALIZE HE WAS BLIND. I WAS REALLY SURPRISED. THE AUTHOR DID A GREAT JOB IN PORTRAYING RYKER'S BLINDNESS. THE CHEMISTRY WAS THERE BETWEEN AUBRI AND RYKER AND SHE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB OF PORTRAYING BOTH CHARACTERS AS BEING WORKAHOLICS AND NOT TAKING THE TIME TO LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU READ KISSES AND STRUDEL AND THE PLACES TO SEE SERIES. YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH THE CHARACTERS AND PLACES. YOU WILL ALSO FALL IN LOVE WITH THE AUTHORS WRITING. I AM DEFINITELY LOOKING FORWARD TO READING MORE OF JENNIFER'S BOOKS. SHE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT.
