Christmas treat in the summer!

I must say, I really enjoyed this story. It was a novella, which usually feel rushed to me. But, this one so wasn't. I loved the character and story development throughout. It had a sensual quality throughout, and left you wanting to find out more about what was going on between Emily and Devlin. This was the first book I read by this author, but will not be the last. She grabbed me from the beginning, and I was completely pulled into the story.

The narrator, Kristyl, was a pleasure to listen to. Her voice is rich and her flow is on point, as was the different character voices. Very talented. You don't feel like you are listening to someone read, but rather are able to visualize the story in your mind. She has a nice, rich tone. Just a pleasure all the way around.

The Christmas Catalog - Please Be A Prequal


Barbara Morgenroth writes about Devlin and Emily, a young couple who's dreams take them in separate directions. Devlin is happy in the expectation of staying in the hometown ranching community. Emily has big dreams that take her to a powerful career in NYC. As far as Emily knows, Devlin is happily married. She has the career she dreamed of and should be thrilled with her life but something is missing (Devlin.)

One Christmas, Emily is called to go home. The author treats us with vivid descriptions of the home, town and people. She is miserable.... (Emily, not the author!)

I cannot say much more without spoiling. It was a short book and I wish the climax had peeked sooner. There was a little too much grumbling by Emily and the end was....oops, I'm not spoiling.

Another reviewer hoped that this was a prequel to a series. If so, that would change my whole opinion about this book. As is, it was a bit boring, with time wasted on details...it felt like backstory. So maybe...

The narration was adequate and matched the story.

None of this is meant to be harsh or critical. Other reviewers give it 5*'s for me it felt average. *I was given a copy in exchange for my review.
