Hmm just an okay story. Good narration.

Well, this story was just okay. Kind of ridiculous and Ren started out kind of creepy. I didn't like him at all until the end of the book so that is not good. It would have been better to have some more about his background prior to making him liar and a creeper.

Holly was kind of boring. Just sayin..

I didn't think this was a very good short story. IMO. Maybe for others it was good but nor really for me.

As for the narration it was good. Sean Patrick Hopkins did a good job on the female voices and had a sexy voice for Ren and a nice reading voice.

Novella too short to engage my better feelings

Any additional comments?

I didn’t like the hero, Sir Rennington of Ashbourne, particularly at the end of the story. He was too suave, his voice too kind. (probably has something to do with the narrator’s approach) Of course, the reader hears what he is thinking. Even when he, himself, realizes he’s a jerk, I couldn’t forgive him. He changes only when he is cornered, realizing what he was doing to his best friend’s angel, Holly, and feeling guilty. Guilt doth not make a man honorable. I’m not able to get past this point.If Holly had been another woman, he would have pursued her and not felt badly tricking her. No, he wasn’t my cup of tea. In my mind, he didn’t redeem himself.Holly isn’t a very likable heroine, either. She is easily duped. I see some seeds of strength in her, but she easily is manipulated by Sir Rennington and then forgives him. I didn’t like that she could dismiss so easily her sisters’ concerns to have her consider marriage. Again, I think it is because of the shortness of the novella, preventing the fleshing of and feelings of the characters) I couldn’t find anything in her to admire.The narrator’s voice is annoying at times when in both hero and heroine dialogue he breathes in at the end of the phrase. I started listening to that rather than the story!The plot is a good one along with the setting—a time of miracles at Christmas time and magic. As a novella of 76 pages, character development and supporting scenes to make these characters soar with the season, just didn’t happen.I normally love everything this writer pens. I listened to the story a couple of days ago, and still my thinking remains the same.

Sweet Seasonal Story Novella

I am an unabashed lover of KLV novels & tend to try not to try the novellas unless they are on offer. I prefer the full novels as I have to normally have to use a credit anyway. The audible sale has allowed me to do this & just listened to this sweet seasonal story of redemption & love between Ren & Holly. Yes I wanted to hear a full novel (over 10 hours) & hear more but it was a nicely paced novella.
