What I loved:
-The MC is hotheaded, but in a believable way. I've read some female protagonists with a temper that I just could not understand. Sukie was sincere and flawed. I loved that about her. I'll also say this is the first time in a long time that I've read from a perspective of someone who didn't second-guess herself or is consumed with anxiety. As someone who lives with anxiety every day, it was refreshing and a little jarring to be in her head.
-There's no insta-love. Thank god. The romance really builds.
-There's more going on than just romance. Other forms of relationship grow and develop and that makes the book feel much more relatable.
-The love interest is sweet and flawed. I liked him loads.
-The meet-cute is delicious *kisses fingers*
What I didn't love:
-Lots of characters and perspectives, without any stylistic difference between them. The reader quickly jumps from one character's mind to another's without any change in font, a subheading, or other stylistic indicator. That felt clumsy to me. Also there were times where that perspective jump wasn't necessary.
-Mild spoiler for the HEA moment in the spoiler tag. I know some people want to know next to nothing going in, so I'll put it in the tag, but I don't consider this to be a huge spoiler, but like, here's fair warning anyways... <spoiler> The MC is pregnant at the end of the story, and I kinda felt pissed off about that?? Like she's an independent woman in her 30s who LOVES her independence and has never voiced in this story even an inkling of interest in having children.. I felt like I was supposed to be happy for her because this is how romances are meant to end, but I kinda felt like it was a betrayal of her character. I would have much rather seen the romance end with them at home comfortably sipping hot chocolate in the snow, or have had some idea that she wanted kids at any point in the story. </spoiler>
-Vague descriptor of the villain in the spoiler tag. Again, not a major spoiler IMO, <spoiler> The villain's descent into madness was a bit too cheesy. Like it didn't feel all that real. He was basically just an abusive jerk up until then and then BOOM he's crazy. I didn't buy it. But I could also sense a real effort on the author's part to make me buy it, which I found endearing, if that makes any sense. </spoiler>
All that is to say, it had its flaws, but was still an excellent story and very fun to read. I don't usually read lots of Christmas stories in the season, but I'm glad I squeezed this one in!!
Sukie and Pete..Beth and Jordie...Kara and Elsa ...Sophia and Eduardo..really great characters!
I very much enjoyed the story and how the chapters progressed the storyline from a different character’s perspective.
Sukie and Ptebare terrific main characters. Sukie is a pistol who is comfortable in her own skin, has a quick tongue, and yet is a bit naive about Pete’s intentions.
Pete is a lonely rock star without close friends. He’s had a rock bottom moment and is fighting his way back to a life without altering substance. He is intrigued by Suki who doesn’t seem to know about his rock star status.
The writing is good and the story moves along.
Yes it has a Christmas feel but don’t let that deter you if you are already ‘overloaded’ on festivities because this story has a lot more depth than that. It started fairly sedately and kept a steady pace all the while managing to creep under your skin and tweak the emotions.
Sukie is a great character I immediately adored her when she stated she just wanted to get home to her men, two lovable moggies, from that moment I knew she could do no wrong!
Pete is your classic mega famous rock star with attitude, you either love or hate him for his actions. His and Sukie’s paths finally cross when they meet in Saltzburg. What begins as a friendship could easily progress but will it?
There are some realistic side characters I particularly liked Jordie and strangely I felt some sympathy for Eduardo, he is the over protective brother of Sofia who was injured during one of Pete’s gigs. He is after revenge big time! (purely by coincidence this is the 2nd book this week that has had a Sofia so I had to concentrate).
Kiltie has written this from the heart and it shows, her writing is almost poetic in places or should I say musical. I did find the mix of a rock star and the inclusion of The Sound of Music a clever ploy. It’s little things like that which keep the reader invested. As I was reading it I got deeper and deeper in, at the time it felt quite a mammoth length but on reflection I think there is just a LOT going on. This was a story that the author needed to tell in it’s entirety if that makes sense. As a debut it is very clever and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will be interested to see what comes next .. a continuation of Sukie maybe?
My thanks to the author and Rachel’s Random Resources for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
