Elise Dutton and Nicholas Derr are two souls with heartwrenching moments in their past who find themselves alone and lonely with the holiday season approaching. Nick, a successful lawyer proposes that they enter a mutually beneficial contract that would allow them to act as a couple for all the upcoming social events on their calendars. Elise is intrigued with the idea. They agree to a "Purely platonic relationship" and each find themselves falling harder for one another as time goes on. A final revelation serves to bring them even closer together and ultimately shows that there is hope and light in forgiveness and in letting go.
This is one of the best romances I have read in a long time. Not one emotion is left untouched. Richard Paul Evans is masterful at tugging a reader's heart and keeping them hoping the story never ends. It is perfect literary comfort food. This book should be on every Santa list and is a terrific read to give and share with anyone.
Not the case. The two stories are similar, but the book is very different. I kept trying to understand WHY Nicholas would enter into such a contract with Elise (definitely not to make partner in the law firm since he was already a partner). It also never made sense to me why he was so considerate and thoughtful but didn't already have a wife or even a girlfriend. Everything was explained quite well in the end. The author did a very good job of developing the two main characters and as each of their histories came out the characters acted in a believable manner and the ending was handled very well.
I definitely would recommend this book and will most likely read the other two in the series.
The most powerful message of finding self-love, self-worth, and forgiveness is the message of this season's treasured novel. Every year I enjoy any book by this author and always find myself purchasing it for others on my list.
The storyline moved quickly and Evans' style is engaging. I enjoyed the book and found myself high-lighting key thoughts along the way. It was as if the author was speaking to me. One of those phrases was about hope when Nicholas (the leading male character) wrote... "My dear Elise, It’s been said that the Magi, wise men, gazed up into the night skies, following a star. But they were not looking for a star. They were looking for hope. Hope of a new world. Hope of redemption. Light is not found in dark places, and hope is not found looking down or looking back. May you always look up".
This passage struck me, in part, because without hope it's easy to let optimism and opportunity slide by. And, in part, because for all those Christmases I've also sent a crystal star to my son's family to add to their tree. Maybe it's become the family tree of hope. Merry Christmas!
