5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Fantastic 25 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The problems with novella's, is that often it's difficult to truely care about the characters, and feel completely engrossed in the story, simply because of the short length. But not so here.

I was instantly captivated by Ivy's voice, and her story. I loved the portryal of a small town in Maine, her desire to be gone, her reluctance to be back home for Christmas, and of course the unexpected run in with her ex. It's a beautiful story, funny, heartfelt, and I read it in one sitting perfectly happily. It's got a great Christmas feel to it, with the stress and love that so often combine. But it's also a great, complete story, perfectly paced. I adored it. I just want more of these characters now!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas with extra spice 20 Nov 2013
By Book Angel Emma VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
It's official - I love Chelsea Cameron, she can do no wrong :) Christmas Catch captures the spirit of Christmas perfectly between it's pages; the feel of camaraderie and belonging even when you aren't with your family. Traditions and celebrations aid the imagery and dynamic of the story. The spirit of happiness and joy emanates through the pages.

Told in first person narrative from Ivy's perspective. Having escaped her small town upbrining she is loath to go back, exasperated by the fact that she has to share her flight with her high school crush, Sawyer *swoon*. Ivy is a true romantic but has an idealistic picture of how a relationship should be in her mind and no-one has been able to live up to her expectations. She is truly a girl after my own heart, except I live in reality, lol. Ivy has dedicated her live to romance, her job as a food blogger encompasses all things love involving food :)

Fate/destiny steps in by throwing Ivy and Sawyer together via a series of catastrophic yet completely hilarious incidents. As an outside observer, you can immediately see how perfect Ivy and Sawyer are for each other and how their interactions now and as teens had been misconstrued on both sides, but mainly through Sawyer's teasing :) They are drawn to each other like magnets.

Ivy has spent so long fighting for her ideal lifestyle that she has forgotten who she is at heart and the things that are really important to her. As the story progresses and Ivy's eyes are opened to the reality of her lifestyle, she realises that it doesn't have to be all or nothing; life is about balance and compromise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I needed in a Christmas novella: steam, a bit of angst, love, and holiday cheer! 11 Dec 2013
By Jessica Leigh (Lovin' Los Libros) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
So I loved this one. LOVED! This was exactly what I needed in a Christmas novella: steam, a bit of angst, love, and holiday cheer! I am really into the whole idea of rekindling a romance after being separated. However, Ivy does not make this easy. Her entire life the plan has been simple: get out of Saltwater, Maine. She dreads going back home for Christmas- yet her mother begs for her to come home so they can all be together again. Reluctantly, Ivy agrees and finds that things are exactly as she left them, save for the boy she left behind. Of course the one person she actually didn't want to get away from is the one she would run into first.

I really liked Sawyer. He's a good guy who has gotten dealt some rather unfortunate hands. He was hurt deeply when Ivy decided they should end things before parting ways to attend school. Now, they keep running into one another and the tension between them is high. Ivy is genuinely sorry for how she left things with him, yet she knows she is not there to stay and neither one can survive the heartache again. Things with Ivy and Sawyer were awesome when they were together. I don't think ending things with him were really what she wanted, but she really felt as if she had no other choice. Both were going to different schools and it's hard to hold on to that high school love when you know you will be separated.

Ivy's family, while a bit crazy, really do love her and want what's best for her. Even if that means playing matchmaker! I love how Ivy's mom meddles and sticks her nose in her and Sawyer's business.

"Why doesn't she just shove the two of us in my room, lock the door and tell us that we're not allowed out until we've re-consummated our relationship? Actually, it wouldn't shock me if she did that."

Ivy and Sawyer left things unresolved, unsettled. Neither have them have been able to move on because they both still care about the other. Ivy is definitely stubborn, but the heart wants what the heart wants and she needs to stop thinking so much and just feel.

Overall, this is a really cute read not only about two people finding their way back to one another, but also about a girl discovering that maybe there really is no place like home.

4.0 out of 5 stars The perfect read for a cold winter's day in front of the fire place! 4 Stars for Christmas Catch! Enjoy! 2 Dec 2013
By techieteacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Ivy Emerson grew up in a small tiny fishing village in Maine and she couldn't wait to leave. After graduating as the valedictorian of her 10 classmates she packed up and left behind her family and her boyfriend for Columbia University. Two years later her overbearing Mother begs her to come home for the holidays where she ends up running back into her first love, Sawyer McCallister. Will the holiday joy convince Ivy that home is where the heart is?

Ivy is definitely torn. She loves going to school at Columbia but she misses her family and her small town (even if she won't admit it to herself). She also misses Sawyer (which she also won't admit to herself). He is her one and only love. He hasn't forgotten her or how much he loved her. It was just so sweet to read about Ivy and Sawyer reconnect with their past via their inside jokes and memories. They were two peas in a pod growing up and the two years apart hasn't changed them much. They still fit together like a glove. There was just enough laughter and love to balance them out.

I love Christmas stories. For some reason, books about the holidays just warm my heart. Big family get togethers and traditions are so uplifting. Ivy's family was a joy to read about. They were fun, quirky, and loving. The small town antics and matchmaking between the families was hilarious. I loved the little nuances of the small town fishing village, too. The story was touching and heartfelt. It was warm and cozy. The perfect read for a cold winter's day in front of the fire place! 4 Stars for Christmas Catch! Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 STARS 2 Dec 2013
By Red, Red, they call me Red - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a quick read about Ivy and Sawyer, high school sweethearts who see each other again after two years apart. I feel like the reasons behind their breakup isn't fully explained, I wish there was just a little more back story. Especially since it was obvious that they hadn't moved on and were both still in love with each other. The ending was kind of abrupt, I think a small epilogue would have been nice.

I liked it, didn't love it, but if you are looking for a cute Christmas read, give this a try.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, cute, short read 22 Mar 2014
By JoT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
After two years, Ivy Emerson is going to her small town for Christmas.

When she finished high school, she left everything behind and went to college without looking back.

The first person she saw when she came back was him. Sawyer, the only guy who has her heart.

Sawyer McCallister's heart was broken when the girl he loved broke up with him and left him.

They spend a lot of time together remembering what happened in the past and telling each other what happened in the last two years.

They both know that the feelings they had for each other are still alive. Ivy finally realized that even if they are in two different places, they don't have to end they relationship. That they can make it work.

Sweet, cute, short read that will warm you heart in these cold days.
