ruthhill74Yelm, WAAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Nice Little Christmas StoryNovember 17, 2013ruthhill74Yelm, WAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Although I am not familiar with the characters nor this series, this was a much more enjoyable read than the author's other Christmas book out this year. This book had a bit of mystery, excitement, and some expected romance. I enjoyed those portions of the book including the autistic girl featured in the book. I always appreciate it when author's tackle special needs issues and demonstrate that these people can be fully functioning citizens.
I was confused about how the two main characters interacted concerning the kidnapping. That did not seem to flow as well, and the happy ending truly seemed to be a strain on reality, but this is a romance after all. I would have appreciated some more Christian references within the book. I never understand why the characters don't seek God more, but maybe that is just a reflection of the way normal life is. There is nothing inappropriate in this book, and though not as good as expected, it is nice for a quick Christmas read.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated,and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
i blog 4 books4 Stars Out Of 5Quick, fun read!November 2, 2013i blog 4 booksHoly Night is another fun story from Colleen Coble! Although I haven't read the other books in the Aloha Reef series, I was able to jump right in and really enjoyed getting to know Bane, Leia, Eva, and their friends/family. Bane and Leia seemed like such a "power" couple, and I was excited to see how they would respond to everything that was thrown at them. With that said, I was a little disappointed with Bane's reaction to a few things. It just seemed ... insensitive! (Perhaps reading the rest of the series will help me understand better!)
If you're looking for a quick read with a little romance and a little mystery, I'd recommend Holy Night. And I'm definitely looking forward to reading the rest of this series! [4 stars]
I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson and Litfuse Publicity via Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.
