4.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Story, 7 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas at the Crescent: A Noella (Kindle Edition)
Josie Ballard is up to her eyeballs in sweat, steam and Christmas puddings. Her 10 month old son Titus is on the floor banging a tin with a spoon. Giles, vain and spoiled as a child, walked out on her minutes after he was born. Money is tight. The gourmet puddings to be sold at Bath's Christmas Market would be a welcome source of income. Neighbour, handsome Harry, a script-writer, complains of the noise Titus is making. He befriends Josie. He is courteous but can be awkward and tactless. Giles is with his ex-girlfriend, Rebecca. Whereas Josie is calm and confident, Rebecca, although glamorous, is selfish and insecure. Giles begins to feel guilt and regret concerning his behaviour and neglect of Titus. He becomes more involved with him and responsible. The situation becomes intriguing as inevitably, decisions and choices have to be made. Josie is right in the middle of it with Titus.

Veronica Henry has set up this situation to expand the story line into a struggle of emotions that make delightful reading, describing the scenes and colourful characters in a picturesque way, not without humour. Josie is particularly engaging. The Christmas setting is perfect to capture the full atmosphere of this engaging tale. Enjoyable and touching. The author has written a concise novella, maintaining the high quality we have come to expect from her.
