5 Stars Out Of 5
Made Me Want to Experience Ireland
January 29, 2015
I read a lot of Christmas novellas this Christmas, and this was one of the best. Slightly longer than most, it seemed to have more depth. I especially appreciated the alternating first person approach - seeing the events from the perspectives of the two main character, but really getting inside their heads to what they were thinking and feeling. The story moved along well, but still had a depth that was surprising in such a short novel. It was great to explore Ireland with Jamie and his mum, meet some Irish characters and get a feel for the Emerald Isle. I enjoyed the gentle reference to Christmas. A satisfying December story, which I highly recommend.
