I enjoyed reading this story. It started off so melancholy, but then it picked up only to end with nothing accomplished. A father and his two daughters, the oldest of which was a grumpy teenager, spend Christmas at a castle in Scotland. The owner of said castle is a young widow with two children as well, the older one being a year younger than the man's oldest girl. The storyline is how the grumpy girl has her attitude adjusted, the father promises not to be a workaholic, and at the end everyone is happy.
A wonderful feel good book about families coming together and working through past problems. Staying in this amazing castle with great food and crackling fires and an amazing host. Could not put this down. A Christmas to remember for all of them and so want them to go back and for wonderful things to happen in the future. I have enjoyed all of Victoria's books and will continue to read all she writes.
This book was pretty good, especially if you want something quick to read with pretty good story development. The description of the surroundings really makes you feel that you are there , which is always important to get into a storyline. I will read more of her books.
This is a delightful Christmas novella. There is an art to writing novellas and Victoria Connelly does a great job. The story held my interest, the characters are likeable, and the ending left me well-satisfied. A clean, gentle read.
