Genre : Holiday, Romance
Format : Owned book
Rating : 3/5 stars
I was fairly interested about the story at the beginning but eventually I felt it dragged on too much towards the end with lengthy prose describing the characters, what they’re doing and mundane details that I tend to skip through the paragraphs without conversation. The story started magically but the magic wore off towards the end.
The romance is very predictable and you can see it coming for miles, I was hoping for a more subtle and nuanced relationship but they just came across as direct and at times I was like “Hmm, that’s it?”
Spoiler! The evil exes part also doesn’t quite cut it, they seemed quite made up to me and superficial. OR perhaps it was meant to be that way? I’m not quite sure. Spoiler!
Despite the short falling of the love story, this book emanates warmth of Christmas and wonderful baking anecdotes. I like the excerpts from Cally’s articles about cakes and learned many types of cakes.
A cosy small town + love story + generous folks = a light and easy Christmas themed read.
