Review: The Advent Bride by Mary Connealy
The Advent Bride - Mary Connealy

Title: The Advent Bride
Author: Mary Connealy
Series: The 12 Brides of Christmas, 1
Format: ebook, bind-up
Length: 51 pages

Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis: Melanie Douglas attempts to connect with a troubled student using an advent box with hidden rewards. When Henry O’Keeffe sees a remarkable change in his son, he has to meet the new teacher. Will more than one prayer be answered in the small Nebraska town?

 

Favourite character: Melanie 
Least favourite character: Magda Rathbone

 

Mini-review: Oh my goodness, Mrs. Rathbone ruined this novella for me. It would've been so much better if she had either been removed or toned down by about ten, and stopped the accusations and demands. Other than that I enjoyed it. I liked the ending, but would've liked Simon's take more than "marry us we love you."

Mini-review: This was cute. Liked how the age difference wasn't a problem. And how it was love at first sight. Not sure how I feel about the slight doppelganger aspect that is never brought up again after it was introduced.

Novella Review: A Light in the Window by Tracie Peterson
The Alaska Brides Collection: Five Romances Persevere in the Alaska Wilderness - Tracie Peterson,Mary Connealy,Cathy Marie Hake,Kathleen Y'Barbo

Title: A Light in the Window

Author: Tracie Peterson

Bind-Up: The Alaska Brides Collection

Format: ebook

Rating: 1 star

 

Favourite character: N/A (mainly because I wrote down my actual favourite character but my writing stinks and I cannot read what I wrote)

Least favourite character: Sam & Julie

 

Mini-review: Well that wasn't fun. The romance wasn't romantic, more like sexual harassment that the MC gave into. Then it started to get slightly better but the ending ruined all hope of it getting more than one star. Julie's stupidity ruined everything.

Novella Review: Golden Twilight by Kathleen Y'Barbo
The Alaska Brides Collection: Five Romances Persevere in the Alaska Wilderness - Tracie Peterson,Mary Connealy,Cathy Marie Hake,Kathleen Y'Barbo

Title: Golden Twilight

Author: Kathleen Y'Barbo

Bind-up: The Alaska Brides Collection

Format: ebook

Rating: 3 stars

 

Favourite character: Fiona

Least favourite character: Elizabeth

 

Mini-review: So, um, this novella had terrible continuity. Daughters became nieces, nieces became daughters. There were some other things that I've already forgotten but it felt like the authors got their wires crossed or something.

One thing I really didn't like was the 18 year time jump in basically one chapter. I hate time skips, it's a reading pet peeve.
