R*BY Review Challenge 2015
As the reviews are made live, the schedule page will be updated, so you, the lovely reader, can find them all in one spot!
The second title in this year’s R*BY Review Challenge is A Little Christmas Magic by Alison Roberts. Originally released in November 2014, this is brought to you by Harlequin Medical Romance.
OK, now what did I think of A Little Christmas Magic?
It’s always a little odd reading a Christmas-themed book in the middle of June. However, it is pretty damn cold here in Melbourne at the moment, so this time around, it seemed rather fitting.
I have a rather dog-eared copy of one of Alison Roberts’ early medicals and have always enjoyed her work. A Little Christmas Magic is definitely a top read. Sweet without being saccharine, emotional without being maudlin, and certainly entertaining.
Emma had every reason to be gruff and unhappy, because of what was going on in her life, but I loved that she still maintains her joy and love for life. Adam did occasionally let his past get the better of his present, and plans for the future, however watching Emma transform his outlook on life and love was wonderful.
Their connection and relationship build beautifully, and I also really enjoyed how the relationship grows between Emma and the children. Christmas is obviously a central theme in the story, and many aspects of the tale reflect the spirit of the season – joy, togetherness, family.
Having spent some time living in Scotland, I love reading stories set there, and getting a lovely little glimpse of village life again was fun.
This was a lovely, sweet read, for a day spent cuddled under the doona!
A Little Christmas Magic is nominated in the Short Sweet category at the R*BYs, and I wish you, Alison, the very best of luck!
