Sweet Holiday Romance


I really liked this short but sweet telling of how cynical smart-ass, Noel, finds love, hope and happiness after a lifetime of less-than-stellar experiences. I liked the h and H, in spite of her borderline OTT grumpiness and his knee-jerk reactions. I LOVED Tony, and I hope he has a story out there somewhere because he is awesome.

Sara Gordon did an excellent job with the voices and inflection and was engaging. She gave a great performance. I absolutely recommend this one.

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

WRAPPED UP ROMANCE JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.<br/><br/>Jennifer Theriot did a great job of packing a big story in a short audiobook. I particularly enjoy romances that find room for humor and this one didn't disappoint. My only complaint, and it's a common one for me, is how quickly Noel and Leon fall for each other. But other than that, there was that good torture before the HEA. <br/>Sara Gordon's performance was spot on for Noel. She has a real voice. I haven't heard her before and hope she goes on to narrate more in my genres.<br/><br/>Two Thumbs Up!

Feisty and sweet romance about new opportunities

This is definitely a story based on "when a door closes, somewhere else a window opens." Noel is a feisty, kind, sarcastic woman who has been divorced for a while but continues to be trapped in a relationship with her ex. Jumping on an opportunity to get away from him, she goes on a business trip and encounters the lovely and gorgeous Leon. This is the beginning of their relationship.

The plot is lacking in substance but the ending suggests that the story is meant to be continued in another book. The characters are believable with insecurities created by life experience. The book is also sexy as the two recapture their sexuality and rediscover their sensual side. I am curious to see what happens next.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
