Significantly cheesy, but still encouraging

This fairly short story, despite it's substantial cheesy-ness, was still worth listening to for me because of the encouraging Scripture verses & edifying words spoken throughout. The overall premise is quite humorous, and I chuckled every time the narrator said "Putz" (pronounced "Pootz") meaning "Christmas Village." Perhaps the author should have stuck w/ the latter nomenclature?

I could appreciate the female lead's struggles to overcome ongoing personal issues as well as the need for both leads to admit their mistakes, mature, and forgive each other.

I enjoyed the narrator's slow, calm pace, but two things irked me about the narration. First, when she occasionally conveyed someone shouting words (i.e. during a friendly snowball fight), she literally shouted INTO the microphone. (She should have pulled back away from it so she wouldn't yell in your ear.) Second, during some "scene changes" she continued speaking as if the new scene were an unbroken continuation of the previous one without as much as a breath. It was like going from one chapter to another without pausing to acknowledge a different setting or group of characters.

I wanted a chipper little Christmas romance, and this fit the bill. So, if you enjoy a sappy romance w/ an improbable (Hallmark movie-ish) plot, an occasionally over zealous narrator, and sugary-sweet "make-believe village" characters, this is for you!
