LOVE FINDS YOU ON CHRISTMAS MORNING
Two romantic stories---one common thread! In 1925, wealthy William Tronnier is smitten with penniless Lillian Pickard and plans to Deck the Halls with a proposal she can't refuse! And in 'Tis the Season, Nikki Tronnier plans to buy the home her great-grandfather built for his bride---but Drew Cornell's offer is accepted first! 288 pages, softcover from Summerside.
I've only read Trish Perry's novella, 'Tis the Season so far (It's the ACFW Book Club's pick for this month) but I wanted to post this review now to give time for the Giveaways. My internet has been wonky at home which is why I'm late posting them this week. Anyway, I really enjoyed Perry's holiday tale. It's the right mix of comedy and angst with a few refreshing surprises thrown in for good measure.
Drew isn't the confident hero I am used to reading about. Perry shows his vulnerable side, allowing him to be embarrassed a time or two and a little bit awkward with tendencies towards bumbling. Completely endearing and definitely appealing. It made the story all the more believable for me.
There's great interaction between Nikki and her sister, Hannah and an outrageously funny secondary character, Gigi, who adds spice to the tale.
Another unique twist to this tale is that the hero and heroine don't connect immediately. Perry takes time to set the stage and let's her readers get to know Nikki and Drew first. We get to watch their attraction to each other from afar, anticipating every moment that brings them closer to discovering each other. This brought a very realistic feel to their love story.
A wonderful, cheery, feel-good kind of Christmas read!
