This Story Is Sweet

Publisher's Summary

A romantic inn...a white Christmas...hot cocoa by a roaring fire...it all adds up to a perfect holiday romance from Special Edition debut author Olivia Miles!

Dear Holly,

As I look around the inn, I see garland and mistletoe, colored lights and ornaments - everything I have always professed to despise. You were right to wonder why I would choose to visit the White Barn Inn. You were right about a lot of things.

Since I met you, though, everything has changed. I've changed. And that's why I can't go on any longer without telling you the whole story. I don't know if you will ever be able to forgive me. But they say Christmas is a time for miracles. And you do believe in them, don't you? The question is, can you still believe in me?

Good story

The story was engaging, but I had a really hard time sticking with it because of narrator. Her voice had no life in it, almost robotic or like she was fighting to stay awake. I would probably enjoyed it more if I'd just read the book.

Lust rather than romance

I'm really pretty easy to please in Christmas romances...just be happening at Christmas, and have a believable romance. This book is not believable, though it does happen at Christmas. I would forgive its flaws, but you lose me when it seems like the characters just want sex, not love. I'm by no means a prude, but I'd rather my Christmas romances stayed out of the bedroom.
Now, the narration.... I found the readers voice appealing, but, there were many problems. well, mainly two problems: weird pauses in the middle of sentences, and then even weirder pauses as she swallowed saliva. Just weird.
