This is a busy time of season. Shopping for presents, wrapping said presents, baking, celebrating. And it's the reason why this will be our last review until February.
Our review team is taking a much needed break to spend time with family and friends.
We wish you a
Happy New Year
For the month of December we read and reviewed this lovely novella:
It’s two days before Christmas and bestselling children’s author Grace Alberts needs to fulfill a promise—to make it to a book signing for the kids at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the place that did so much for her during a very rough time. But the weather’s getting awful and all flights are cancelled out of Boston, where she’s wrapping up her book tour. Then in walks her annoying but extremely sexy ex-husband, who (as usual) thinks he’s got all the answers.
Graham Walker just stopped by to get a book signed for Grace’s biggest fan, his niece, and wish Grace a Merry Christmas—why not? But he soon finds himself troubleshooting her dilemma. He’s got a Range Rover that can plow through a hundred-year Nor’easter. He’s even headed home to Philly. Trouble is, Grace's and his past is a disaster, something he has no intention of reliving while driving through a winter storm, no matter how much he once loved her. And maybe still does.
Bad weather has a way of bringing out the best and the worst in people, and when a run in with some deer antlers leads them to a forced stop in Mirror Lake, Connecticut, anything can happen, naughty or nice. Maybe a bit of enforced alone time and some Christmas magic can be just what it takes for them to face their past—and each other—once and for all.
I was traveling to visit my son for Thanksgiving when I read this adorable novella in one sitting.
The author, Miranda Liasson is a wonderful writer and spins a delightful tale. I became totally enamored with Can't Miss Christmas right from the beginning, and, until the heartfelt ending.
I fell in love with both character's instantly, and the pain they'd suffered in the past tore me apart. It's a dual POV and you get to read each ones earnest feelings and their inner struggles.
I highly recommend this beautifully written novella by Miranda Liasson!
Now, let's head over to read Nana Prah's and Empi Baryeh's reviews!
