The first of my Christmas reads and it was charming. I found myself smiling much of the way through the story, even when I wanted to pinch the hero, the so very bound-by-duty Andrew Blackshear, who is the eldest of the family and so very, very, very proper. *LOL*
Our heroine, Lucy Sharp was born to get under Andrew's skin and drive him to total distraction. And that's exactly what she does with her impulsive and adventurous ways. Propriety? Not something she adheres to for the most part. Brought up by an unconventional widower after the way-too-early death of her mother.
It was cute, it was heart-warming, it was filled with love and surprises. I'm not fond of the cover (it's just too modern-looking for me), but the novella is a very pleasing read for the holiday season. Check it out!
