Jorie Beckett has never celebrated Christmas. Now after returning home after an extended period abroad, she looks forward to renewing her relationship with family, and start her life anew. Even if that means celebrating the holiday.
She doesn't expect to run into her high school sweetheart at a Christmas Market. Kyle Koykendall pledged to always love and protect Jorie, but didn't live up to his promise. He's now bitter and angry, and Jorie can't understand why. After all, he failed her, not the other way around.
Can Jorie and Kyle work through the secrets and lies of the past that split them apart, and rediscover their love? Or will Jorie's first Christmas be a memorable disaster?
Any additional comments?
This is a short and sweet story. Jorie returns to her hometown where she believes her x betrayed her, only to find out he feels the same. Now they must uncover who betrayed them and learn to deal with things as adults.
This book was great, especially since it's the holiday season! I really enjoyed it! It was about 1 hour 45min long, which I felt was perfect because I was able to finish in it one sitting. The writing was great...I will definitely be reading many more books from Natalie-Nicole Bates! I felt like I got to know the main character well and her situation was easily relatable.
The narration was also fantastic! The last couple books from other authors and narrators that I listened to didn't really do it for me. This was due to poor narration. Definitely not the case here! The speed of the story, the way she spoke, and the tone of her voice made me feel like she was a perfect fit! I have a very good 1st impression of Bailey Varness and would love to see what else she has narrated. :-)
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a story about ex-lovers who find each other again during Christmastime. Loved it...thank you!!
