“This was a great romance, that managed to merge several different tropes to great affect”
~ Under the Covers
I’ve never really been a fan of Christmas books, but I did want to pick up some in December and this historical romance novella was recommended to me, so I decided to give it a try. Now, I am left wondering where Mimi Matthews has been all my life! I absolutely loved this book, it was the perfect holiday read.
If that’s not enough to convince you to give it a try, let me continue. I have always been a fan of books where the hero is either grumpy, taciturn or a little staid. That is, until you get to know them. Which, perfectly describes our hero. As a self made man from humble beginnings who is now courting a lady from the upper classes, he is very aware of the rules which thus makes him seem very standoffish and indifferent. Nothing could be further from t he truth. However, our heroine breaks off their courtship thinking he has little interest in her. Until of course Christmas brings them together again.
This was a great romance, that managed to merge several different tropes to great affect: second chances, class differences, opposites attract, with a hint of pining from the hero. Have I sold you on this yet? It was a really great read, and a great introduction to Mimi Matthews, I definitely plan on reading more of her books in the future.
