    Excellent My new favourite bookWhen you review books for free you get a large variety of books Some of them good some of them not so good and some which you eventually have to give up on I often wonder why I review books for free and it’s books like that give me reason to continue to do soStephanie Cage is now one of my favourite authors If you haven’t read this ladies writing then do so I couldn’t find a single fault with this book which is why I’ve given it five stars I’d give it 65 if I couldSo what’s so amazing about this book? Firstly the writing style Stephanie’s writing flows in such a way that you are no longer reading a book but you are in fact living the story The writing is well proof read so there are no distracting errors and the dialogue and thoughts of the characters are naturalSecondly the characters In this novel Sue the main character and her four year old daughter Trudi are real people with thoughts and feelings They aren’t just words on a page They are characters which you can relate to and route for Bryn too is a great character and throughout the novel you want to know what’s led him to be such a secretive person Though most of all you want Sue and Bryn to give up fighting against love and enjoy what they could have togetherFinally the plot All I’m going to say is that it’s original sweet and engrossing I couldn’t put this book down If you want to find out then you’re going to have to buy the book You won’t be disappointed

    A lovely light read The principal characters of Bryn Sue and daughter Trudi are all believable and likeable Once I started reading Santa I didn't want to stop The characters and plot were both engaging witness the fact that I didn't want to put the book down once I started reading Both Bryn and Sue were hurting due to previous relationships and it was satisfying to see them get together Good too to see a male character portrayed as actively wanting to be a dad I would have liked a bit about Sue's career and perhaps of a sense of the setting Cardiff But those are minor uibbles about what is a charming and engaging book An ideal book for those wanting to get into the Christmas spirit

    A great read This author has a clean style and good well drawn characters I found the characters human and real and very believable If you're looking for a story of how two people overcome bruised hearts and find new love and a new family set around Christmas and even if you're not then this is a must read If this story was a Christmas dish it would be warm mince pies with a dobble of clotted cream warm sweet comforting with a touch of subtle sexual tension spice and a poignant satisfyingly believable happy ever after the touch of brandyA great way to spend those vouchers
