Summary taken from Goodreads.com
You know Christmas time is coming when I start cracking out the Christmas books. This year I decided to start getting into the holiday spirit by reading this book. I've been reading Harlequin's since I was 11 (probably shouldn't have been) but those were often the only books left in the house that I hadn't read already. Anyways Harlequin's have had a special place in my heart since then.
After a tough week at school I wanted nothing more than to settle down and read something easy, quick, cute, funny, and christmas-y. I was actually surprised by how much I liked this book. Sometimes, I find that though I've got love for the Harlequin books they get a little too corny for my tastes. This one had a Cinderella twist to it so I suppose it was a little corny. I like corny. I wouldn't be with my better half this long if I didn't (I mean that in a nice, loving way Babe). But I enjoyed it immensley.
It had the cheese factor but it was not over done. I found Lucy Bright the protagonist to be quite likeable, and I hated her Fiance Rupert for using her to make money (the sad thing is men actually do take advantage of women for financial gain more than we think). So I was glad that she found her Happily Ever After. I like how though she was blonde, she was not a ditz! Thank you Liz Fielding for giving readers a heroine with a brain and a sense of humour. I loved the ending!
All in all it was a cute, Christmas love story where I connected to the characters. I give it:
