This was another enjoyable installment by Pamela Clare, but I can't entirely say that it was her best work. Still, it's hard for me to completely dislike something by Pamela Clare, and I can kind of see where she was trying to go with this book.
Anyway, it was a lovely little Christmas story for me to kick off the holiday season with, as well as finish my first 16 Festive Tasks with.
A full review will be coming soon.
|16 Festive Tasks -- Yuletide|
I read Close to Heaven for Square 9 -- Yuletide: A book that is set in the midst of a snowy or icy winter. Most of the book takes place during a big snow storm that pretty much closes down the entire little town of Scarlet Springs.
Meanwhile, as I was reading this book, I found how many other squares this book would fit. Although being that this book is the fifth in an ongoing Contemporary Romance series, I don't know how much this helps.
- Square #1 | Calan Gaeaf: There is a supporting character named Rose.
- Square #4 | Penance Day: Our MC, Joe spends most of the book struggling over his guilt over the terrible things his ancestor had done to people over a century ago, and feels that he needs to give back to the community what his ancestor took from them.
- Square #5 | Advent: There is a Christmas tree showing in the background of this book, which, of course, is a pine tree. I don't know how much of a stretch this would be since it's a little hard to see unless you look closely.
- Square #7 | Saint Lucia's Day: Obviously, snow features as one of the main events in this book, which is kind of what gives our couple a reason to end up stranded under the same roof.
- Square #10 | Pancha Ganapati: There is red on the cover.
- Square #11 | Soyal: This book is set in Colorado.
- Square #13 | Christmas: The MC is named Joseph Moffat.
