When you read this story, you'll fall in love with both Bailey and Finn. Bailey, the pragmatic office manager who has an amazing knack of managing The Perfect Christmas and moving it into new directions all while resenting the business. And Finn, the former bad boy who remade himself into a hero that Bailey and his parents would be proud of. The humor and witty dialogue between these two is cleverly interspersed with emotions that will tug at your heart. The other side characters of Trin Tran, Finn's grandmother, and Tanner Hart are delightful as well.
The side story of Dan and Tracy, Bailey's mother and stepfather, in this novel and is as entertaining as the main storyline. Bailey's parents have run The Perfect Christmas together since Tracy's parents retired. Tracy has fallen into a state of depression and apathy since her youngest child went off to college, and Dan, her stepfather, walks out on his wife when she fails to notice that he's even around. Christie has done a great job of capturing the emotions of these two while they're separated, making the story of their rocky marriage just as captivating as the romance between Bailey and Finn.
As I mentioned before, this book is a personal all-time favorite of mine and I was happy to see it reissued in Kindle. Do yourself a favor and spend some time with Bailey and Finn - you'll not be disappointed!
I finally came to appreciate that the story was, indeed, about people who were immature and were supposed to be growing up through the type of intense emotionality that is heightened during the holidays, families and homecoming. I would have probably liked the book better if the main characters weren't so stereotypically "beautiful, but flawed" ... extra pretty, extra handsome, extra smart, extra brave and hunky, extra successful, extra tragic, etc. I guess that's what some people want in fantasy, though, so be it.
Bailey wavered between being a stone bitch and a doormat, in not a plausible way. Similarly, Finn- uber-tough or marshmallow? Neither could make up their minds, and the wavering got to be boring.
But- CHEMISTRY! OK, the sex scenes were very well-written. Still, in the absence of compelling characters, I didn't care what went where, when.
This seemed to me to be a novella, inflated past its capacity to make it a novel-length book.
Not recommended, except that Ridgway does seem to write a pretty good sex scene- if that happened with characters I cared about, it would be brilliant.
