“…this was enjoyable and sweet and full of holiday charm.”
~ Under the Covers
This was my first Holiday read of the year and to my surprise it was a lot shorter than I was expecting. Yes, I know, it’s a novella. But I was still expecting a bit more. I have read other novellas where the author manages to give me enough story in the page count that I’m satisfied with their HEA. In this case, although I enjoyed the novella, I felt the HEA it was rushed.
As far as the characters go, I really enjoyed Crispin, the Duke of Hurst, and our unlikely heroine Miss Gwen Primm. Her family is definitely one that I would love to read more about because they are all women with personality that don’t care to follow the rules of society and etiquette necessarily. So in that respect, Gwen was right along my alley. Especially when the first thing that happens when she meets the hero is that she hits him in the face with a fruit basket. 😉
I would’ve loved to see this fleshed out in a full length story just to lend more credibility to the fact that these two have fallen in love and are headed for marriage. Nevertheless, this was enjoyable and sweet and full of holiday charm.
