あらすじ・解説

An uplifting, beautiful story about never letting go of your dreams, the special magic of a family Christmas...and the rush of falling in love under the mistletoe.

Single mother Abbey Fuller loves her family more than anything and doesn't regret for a moment having had to put her dreams of being an interior designer on hold. But with her son, Max, growing up, when a friend recommends her for a small design job, she jumps at the chance. How hard can it be?

Nick Sinclair needs his house decorated in time for his family's festive visit - and money is no object. What he doesn't need is to be distracted from his multimillion-dollar business - even if it is Christmas.

When Abbey pulls up to the huge Sinclair mansion, she has a feeling she might be out of her depth. And when she meets the gorgeous, brooding Nicholas Sinclair, she knows that she’s in real trouble....

With the snow falling all around, can Abbey take the chance to make her dreams of being a designer come true? And can she help Nick to finally enjoy the magic of Christmas?

aloof handsome millionaire intrigued by simpleton woman ridden with welfare mentality

"Feel good romance!?!" I kept yelling at my car speakers REALLY BROAD, you told him you didn't know how to eat pasta!?!?! Ohh rich handsome loner millionaire YOU FIND HER LACK OF DINNER TABLE ETIQUETTE CHARMING?

Nope. Can't deal. ✋🏼I tried for 2 days I really did. It was supposed to be a short mushy book club read but ... the over the top welfare mentality was a turn off.

Her questioning his car collection for instance reminded me of note someone shared recently on social media that said:

''A guy looked at the Corvette the other day and said I wonder how many people could have been fed for the cost of that car. I replied I am not sure, it fed a lot of families in Kentucky who built it, it fed the people who make the tires, it fed the people who made the components, it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people who make the trucks that haul the copper ore. That's the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality. When you buy something,you put money in people's pockets and give them dignity for their skills''

Anyway, if all that gives you butterflies and charmed vibes, I recommend listening to the performer at 1.25.

Enjoyed the other Jenny Hale Christmas novel more

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The characters didn't feel believable to me.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jenny Hale again?

Yes, as the other book was better.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This narrator was not a match for the character. Her tone did not seem to match the dialogue given to the character. A Xe Sands type voice would have been better for this novel.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Some renovation/small business mention struggle, but not enough. The premise was interesting.

Any additional comments?

This book should have been right up my alley for Christmas reading, and I was surprised how much it didn't work for me. I do think the narration was a big part of this.

Unable to get into the story

Each time the story started to take me along, the wording would change direction and I would lose that sense that I was there in the book. I enjoy being taken away when I read. I like jumping into the novel being a third person witnessing the encounters and the snow, and the visuals. The words, however, would change and stop the direction like, "the napkin dangled from her fingertips"... napkins do not "dangle", they hang from or are held in a delicate hand...but they do not dangle. Wet noodles dangle, bells, dangle, but not napkins unless they have gooey stuff on them and then they dangle as you are trying to remove the goo as well as the sticky napkin. The author's choice of words would snap me out of the story. Other people might not agree...the plot was alright, but strange.

Ehh

This was really hard to listen to, and ended up returning it. The storyline was boring, and kept saying the same thing over and over. The main character was made out to be some poor maiden. No spark between the two characters, no spark for me to keep listening.

Worst narrator ever

This narrator used a very annoying sort of dumb blonde baby voice for the lead character, and really all the voices were done so poorly that it distracted from the story. I can’t finish listening to this. Definitely a waste of money. Very disappointing considering that other titles by this author have been performed very well by other narrators.

great holiday read

This was a great semi predictable Christmas story. The characters were fun, you could put yourself in Max's shoes and almost see Christmas through the eyes of a child.
