What did you love best about Christmas in Fair Bend?
it's wholesome story...It reminded me a bit of a Hallmark movie.
What did you like best about this story?
second chance love for a young couple was sweet but I loved the family dynamic as well & the small town setting.
Which scene was your favorite?
there were a few but the end is a favorite and even though it's a novella the author added an epilogue which was great to get a little more!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
there were a few sweet moments that were equally enjoyable. I liked the recognition of the spirit of Christmas being important in the story's theme.
Any additional comments?
I love all of the author's novellas and ready for the next to be added to audiobook!

What a fun and heartwarming story! The narrator was fantastic and I look forward to reading more from Angie Ellington!
This book definitely falls under the umbrella of a seasonal holiday romance and it could easily form the basis for a movie on the Hallmark Channel.
It’s a light, sweet read set in small town USA and, with an audio time of approximately 3 hours, offers a good dose of entertainment without needing a lot of time invested; time being at a premium during the holidays when readers turn to books like this.
What I particularly enjoyed about this second chance romance is that it was two people whose lives cross a second time, which proves to be the right time for them both. Both Lacey and Mason made choices that were right for them 10 years ago. And now, it’s a rediscovery of each other as somewhat new people. There is some melancholy about lost chances but overwhelmingly it’s a story about knowing when to stay, when to leave and when to reassess your course in life.
A special mention goes to Alexia, the popular, sometimes ‘mean girl’ from high school, who shows that people can change and are worth getting to know the second time around...or maybe that only happens in fiction?
Amanda Strebling does a good job of narrating both male and female voices. There’s some mispronunciation of a couple of words but nothing that impacts the overall story. Alexia again shines through in the narration.
