Hello Book Friends!  It’s just another Monday closer to Thanksgiving, and I couldn’t be more excited for the holidays coming up! 🙂 And since Christmas IS coming up soon I was in the mood to read something for the upcoming holiday! Those HALLMARK movies just never set the right tone for me to feel like I get the whole story, so I wanted to READ something Christmasy. When I saw that this one was also a HISTORICAL FICTION book, I requested this one, immediately. It’s not a YA novel like I typically read, but sometimes I need a break from those!

I’m so glad I did.  This story was ADORABLE.  Not gonna lie, it’s a straight up fluffy cute romance novel.  Not something I’d pick up to read every day, but something that I enjoy once in a while.  And this one was perfect.

I love how it starts out.  The two main characters don’t understand each other at all, and sets the tone for the whole story.  But it’s so much FUN! The story was well-written, and it was another fast-paced book I’ve read recently.  I wasn’t expecting it to be so short, – I didn’t realize it was a novella, (my bad) but for this type of story there was no reason to drag anything out.  You learn a lot about the characters in such a short amount of time.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book.  I recommend it to anyone looking for a simple sweet romance with a historical fiction edge to it and taking place during a nice Christmas setting.   I loved the main characters, (some of the side characters not so much, but they kind of remind me people I know in real life so there’s that! ;)) and the overall plot and the simplicity of it all.

Anyway, these are my non-spoilery opinions and thoughts about this book! Let me know what your thoughts are in the comments below! Also, thanks for reading!
