    Story
    "A Truely Enjoyable Listen..."

    I don't know whether it is just Lisa Kleypas' incredible art at story telling or whether it is that the reader wove the tail so nicely. I just know that the characters came to life while I was listening to this book and when the story ended I was truly touched. The story was lively and had some pretty funny bits. If you are familiar with the Pacific Northwest then you will really enjoy the Tacoma bit.... No spoilers here. :) Enjoy! I did.

    Story
    "Fun, Light Seasonal Story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The story was seasonal yet light and fun. You could see whare the story was going, yet the characters were real enough and engaging in their personalities and back stories, to make the journey a fun little listen.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I enjoyed the personailities of the characters most. I am very familiar with the setting, so I wasn't drawn into the descriptions as much as someone who would be creating the images in their mind. I would think for them, that experience would also be a delight.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Tanya Eby?

    I probably wouldn't search her out as I do some other favored narrators, but I wouldn't not choose to listen to a book she narrates simply because she is filling that role.


    Do you think Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Seasonal stories don't need follow ups, especially light ones like this one. It's a perfect little holiday package, don't introduce overkill.

    This book was enjoyable and the book was predictable but it still was fun to hear. Very lighthearted and well written.

    Story
    "Sweet, Feel Good, Magical Christmas Story"

    Lisa Kleypas never disappoints! She is a gifted storyteller, and while this novel is not, perhaps as involved as many of her other novels, it is a Christmas Story, and very enjoyable.
    My daughter (25) and I live about 300 miles apart, and one or our hobbies is to read/listen to books at the same time, and visit about them together on the phone.
    We both loved Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor: Friday Harbor, Book 1, and believe you will too. Definitely a credit worthy, feel good holiday treat.
