I’ve always enjoyed the books I’ve read by this author and this one was no different.
A Christmas time historical romance with sunshine/grump, forced proximity, a heroine with a true appreciation for Jane Austen, and a nice nod to Home Alone (yes, that one, the iconic 1990 movie)? Yup, I’m in.
But… okay, listen, I’m the first to admit that a Christmas-time historical romance without at least one really fun sex scene is one I’m less inclined to read (I enjoy some explicit sex in the books I read).
I liked this story, it was entertaining, it was touching, Myrtle and Val were great characters. Horace was a total love, but at the end, I was left wanting more from it.
