The book feels padded with some repetition and could have done with editing for length; but the editors may have asked the author to plump it up a bit because they could price it more highly. Characters are neatly drawn and they are the making of the account: an earnest widowed father with a bright eight year old daughter; a young man whose idea of heaven is a new motorbike rather than getting settled just yet; two nice ladies running a café near the Ha'penny Bridge with a cheeky chef; and a worried young woman who isn't sure that her relationship is in the right place.
There are issues which the author never looks at and should have. We're told at the purchase point in Tiffany's that the ring has accompanying papers. A professor would put great store on documentation and authenticity, and Tiffany's would guarantee that this was ethically sourced and not a blood diamond. So all the professor had to do was to ask the other man to produce his own diamond certificate, credit card statement and sales receipt, while the sales staff would have explained that the ring could be diamond tested in any jewellers. And he would have asked for the papers, it's the first thing he would have done.
I don't want to spoil a lighthearted romance by being overly picky so have fun with this Christmas-themed story. You may find yourself skipping lightly through pages after halfway, but do stay on for the end, it works out well.
