A cute little read that was finished in one sitting. Fed up with her superficial family, Claire decides to avoid the ‘perfect’ Christmas with her family in American and decides to take residence of her godmother’s cosy cottage in Yorkshire. Having her own emotional baggage from the past, Claire yearns nothing more for a peaceful and quiet Christmas.
After her car skids into a snow bank, Claire has the fortunate pleasure of meeting Noah and eventually his daughter Molly – the family and love she’d craved for a very long time. Claire helps Noah to push the back end of one of his sheep out of the icy mud, even if she’s going to ruin her brand new pair of Prada boots, the meeting between the two begins the early stages of their romance.
Hewitt combines and develops the characters of Noah and Claire by allowing the third person narrative to focus on both character’s viewpoints.
The writing was engaging, descriptive and effortless to read. I loved that both Claire and Noah had past relationships which still had an impact on them in the present as they seemed like realistic characters, one that I could relate to.
I found the ending to be a bit rushed for a novella. I would have liked to read a bit more of a realistic ending. But if anything, it was a pleasure to read that I wish it wasn’t a novella and that I could read more about the relationship of Claire and Noah.
Would recommend to anyone that wants a light and easy read.
