One of her absolute best festive romances imho
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was lucky to beta read this beautiful festive romance from Eli who is, imho, one of the absolute best at writing them.
I’ve adored every single Christmas romance she’s ever written and this one was no exception. It’s a slow burn-y, small age gap, hurt/co.
mfort story with a hint of mystery and perhaps an element of deliberate intervention to set up the meeting between Greg and Robbie.
As my lovely friend Dani says, the astute reader will pick up what’s at the heart of this novel – the connection between Greg and Robbie that only one of them is aware of.
It’s a quiet and sweet story, it slowly builds up the friendship first between two men who are both not only grieving a loss but who are also dealing with their own extra pain and complications.
it’s a story about hope, about love, about not missing out on a chance that’s given to you when you think all is lost. It’s about traditions, family, moving on and it’s just perfect for a festive read.
Although it’s only a novella, Eli manages, as she always does, to craft a fully fleshed out story with characters who burst off the page in their realness.
