    What made the experience of listening to My Kind of Christmas the most enjoyable?

    Ever since I started listening to this audio I could not stop! I really wanted to know the story, but felt really sad when I realized it was coming to an end. In this story two people who have suffered a traumatic experience in life go to a place to be alone and think about life, and, as expected they fall for each other. But things are not that simple because each one of them has different plans for the near future and all the odds point to the fact that this thing they got themselves into won't last, especially and the family of both of them don't approve.
    The author did a wonderful job by keeping us hooked during the whole story. He doesn't spend pages and pages to actually show something interesting and catching. The whole book keeps you hooked, from the first page to the very last. The narrator did a very good job as well. As I said: I just loved it!

    What did you love best about Safe Haven?

    I completely loved the way we can find romance, courage, family trust and new beginnings in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    It's amazing how we get hooked to the story. We laugh, we cheer... We want a happy ending and it comes, but not exactly the way we're expecting. The story is great from the beginning to the end, but the end definitely comes with a great surprise. I've also watched the movie. The story was adapted and many things changed. It turned out really nice as well. My tip is: read the book and then watch the movie for comparisons. Both versions come differently, but they're both worth of your time.

    There are few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he'd never do: He'd never leave New York City; never give his heart away again after barely surviving one failed marriage; and most of all, never become a parent. Now, Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, married to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the birth of their daughter. But just as his life seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, an unsettling and mysterious message re-opens old wounds.

    It's a book about romance, couple fights, the discovery of finding and living with the one you truly love and changing your life completely in order to be with this special person. But the plot changes dramatically by the middle of the book, and you could never have imagined the way it's gonna end. It's sad and touching at the same time.

    Matthew King was once considered one of the most fortunate men in Hawaii. His missionary ancestors who came to the islands were financially and culturally progressive - one even married a Hawaiian princess, making Matt a royal descendant and one of the state's largest landowners. But now his luck has changed. His two daughters are out of control: 10-year-old Scottie has a smart-ass attitude, and 17-year-old Alex is a recovering drug addict. His thrill-seeking and high-maintenance wife, Joanie, lies in a coma.

    Not the kind of book that kept me hooked crazy trying to know the end, but still very good. There are conflicts of teens, kids, and family issues as normal people would experience in their own lives. The main character shows love in his owm way, not that kind of love we see in romances, but still a very true way of loving. I would also recommend watching the movie, I liked the version shown on it.

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    Any additional comments?

    I thought the story was so not interesting or catching at first; but as I kept on reading it, my interest started growing, and it got to the point that I just couldn't stop reading it at the end. Really funny and touching at the same time. I enjoyed it.
