Like all Lorri's beautiful books, this is nostalgic and heartfelt. A young man's motorcycle breaks down in the most charming town he's ever seen; it's like a page out of a Victorian Christmas story. Everyone in town is friendly and offers hot chocolate and tea at every turn. Though a traveling journalist, he's never found "home". This place captures his heart as does one of the women. After rescuing one of their children, he finds out none of this is what he thinks it is, is it even real? Well, yes, but like nothing you can imagine. If you're a romantic at heart and like a wee bit of magic in your stories, this is for you.
I loved this short and sweet clean romance with a mystery! "Christmas in Silver Birch Valley" has a fresh new plot, wonderfully well-defined characters & witty dialogue that hooked me from the start. Fantastic descriptions brought the vivid scenes to life, with a surprise twist to boot that kept me glued to my seat not wanting to stop! If you love contemporary fiction, with a touch of vintage & whimsy in a clean romance with a touch of mystery, this is a must read for you! I highly recommend this to any fan of fiction and now I can't wait for more this author!
It was OK, but I'm not into paranormal or weird books so I really wasn't overly impressed with this book. I found the supposed story behind the village hard to follow, but that may just be me. Hence I will give it 3 stars & not lower.
