I wanted to listen to this novella because I'm enjoying holiday reads around the holiday season. I've recently discovered this author thru the #AudibleRomance Package, so it felt like a natural progression for me to move from another one of this author's audios to this one.
&amp;amp;gt; What I loved: the North Carolina/bed-and-breakfast setting; the secondary relationship between Ben and Corinne; the amount of &amp;amp;quot;holiday&amp;amp;quot; sprinkled throughout the story
&amp;amp;gt; What I didn't love: Riley's poor attitude; lack of character development
I'll be honest: I do not mind predictable holiday romances - they remind me of Hallmark movies and actually are pretty great. But this one just wasn't one of my favorites. I'm pretty forgiving of behavior in romance stories, but the leading male was such a jerk in the first few chapters -- I couldn't buy his sudden character redemption. The leading female fell for him far too quickly to be believable to me. Perhaps if these characters were a little bit more well-rounded, it would have been a little more believable.
I choose this book in honor of a white Christmas story, and it did not disappoint. I got two wonderful romance stories for the price of one!
