Joel Campbell, award winning mystery writer, has moved from Scotland to Vancover Island. He wants to be closer to his grandmother and hopes the change will get him over his writers’ block. Hating his fame, he has walled off his heart, become gruff and hates anyone interrupting him and yet, he is lonely.
Christy Taylor is an artist who has started her own shop attached to her rented home. Her life cannot be more hectic. She is attempting to grow her clientele, while caring for her small daughter, Jill, who has been diagnosed with Type 1, Juvenile diabetes. Christy is a great mother, but her divorce and her exes attitude toward their daughter has made her distrustful of any help from any man.
These two need to open up their hearts and learn to trust again before it is too late.
This novella is an enjoyable and quick read. I loved the characters in this short read, but being short, I felt some of the character development was lost. Jill was adorable and her disease was handle extremely well. I also feel this novella was not really a Christmas story, just a winter setting. That said, still a good heartfelt novella for a cold winter day.
Brava Ms. Biggar!
I really enjoyed this novella. It is sweet and joyous.
Joel comes across as a rude alpha male who needs an attitude check. Christy is a struggling artist with a young child with juvenile diabetes.
When they first meet, Joel believes Christy has been following him. She doesn't realize he is a famous novelist and he assumes she is wanting an interview or spying on him. Neither assumptions are correct.
Turns out Joel is the grandson of the woman who watches Jill when Christy needs help. He is also Christy's landlord. Thus, Christy is left in the dark about a lot of things concerning Joel.
Meanwhile, she has put Joel in his place the few times they meet until she puts two and two together. By then her daughter is enjoying the times she meets Joel and Joel's defenses are coming down quickly between the joy of a child brings into his life and the feistiness of Christy. Soon, they are working toward a relationship and Joel is way ahead suddenly thinking about building a family with Christy.
"Silver Bells" is a truly enjoyable, heartwarming novella of building trust, filling your life with happiness, of love and, if Joel, has his way, family and the future.
**This novella features a young child with juvenile diabetes. A cause that is very important to the author, as it is to many. I grew up with a best friend who was diagnosed around age 6 or 7 and even in junior high she would sometimes have a sudden attack of low blood sugar. While her behavior turned funny and childish (unlike the child in this novella), it was still serious enough that she get sugar into her body. She is now a mother of three and is very stable. She has an insulin pump and has for years and that has made a huge difference. As the author states, it can be a life threatening illness. I had a grandmother and uncle who both passed away from late in life complications of their diabetes. While stability can be maintained, it is a life long medical issue that requires continual daily monitoring. I thank the author for bringing this into her novella, as it is also a cause dear to my heart. **
