I was gifted an audio book copy in exchange for my honest review.
Honestly, I jumped into the book without knowing much of the synopsis, nor being aware of that this was the fourth book in a series. So it was quite surprising to find out that it was now the turn of the woman who played matchmaker in the previous books to meet her match, if she wanted or not.
Eugenia is one suborn woman. She has been married before and while her marriage was good, it was not perfect, and she intends to never marry again. This is why she needs to put an end to Wyatt’s advances towards her – and fast! Almost every woman in the right age is sent his way with her best casserole to woo him and win him over, so that he finally forgets about Eugenia.
Only Wyatt can be quite determined himself, and Eugenia has to realize that she underestimated him when he bluntly tells her that he wants no other woman besides her. He wants her as she is: The stubborn and (often willing) funny woman that she is. Although being turned down countless of times, he never gives up, because he knows what he wants.
Although not overly descriptive, there was one in my opinion beautiful love scene between those two – it was quite a surprise to me that Eugenia let it happen at that exact point. I also loved for once to read a romance about a woman in her forties / fifties finding her true love.
The narration was beautiful, although it took me a while to get used to Eugenia’s voice (all the others I liked instantly), because it seemed to make her older than she was, but once I did it suddenly matched her persona quite well.
This surely is one sweet and funny Christmas novella that really warmed my heart.
