5.0 out of 5 stars BUT IT IS A REPRINT 25 Oct. 2008
By M.K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Of course this is a good book because it's a Metzger but also because it's a FLIPPING REPRINT. Dagnabit, publishers, give Metzger a contract for a short trad. regency, okay? Stop making her write the longer ones. They're fine and dandy, but she isn't at the top of her game with them. By not letting her loose with the perfect shorter length, you're stifling the absolute master at this genre. And face it, as we all wearily slog through this financial crisis, we need all the lovely fluffy fun we can get. Get her started on new trad regencies!
Grr! GRRR!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming 21 Dec. 1999
By Stacey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book. I'm tired of reading trashy porn novels that have no good literature in them whatsoever. This book gave me a good feeling inside when I finished it. I would recommend reading it. Especially this time of year.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average 16 Oct. 2008
By Serene Night - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Father Christmas is an cute, if somewhat light regency about a widow Graceanne with two twin boys who falls for a local nobleman. I enjoyed the beginning, but I began to lose interest after the first half. The story meandered and I just didn't care what happened to Graceanne and the duke. The antics of the twins, Prue, and Leland just didn't captivate me like the editorial review suggested. The romance itself was rather tepid and a lot of time was spent with the twins, the sister and other minor characters. I confess I did not finish and gave up after 3/4 of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, I knew it was a reprint but I was happy to read it again 1 Dec. 2009
By Susan Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I see there are complaints here that this is a reprint but it wasn't impossible to tell by looking at the listing or inside the cover of the book before buying. Anyway, I bought it despite having a very old first edition from 1995 which is falling to bits. And I see complaints that there wasn't enough sexual tension. That did surprise me a little because that is a thread I see running through the story as our hero and heroine struggle with the depth of their true feelings for each other.

Graceanne Warrington is a war widow with 3 year old twin sons. She has returned from the peninsula following the death of her husband and gone back to the vicarage where she was brought up. Her father is a "hellfire & damnation" clergyman with a secret passion for collecting books to the point that he both defrauds and ignores his family. Our heroine is slowly becoming a household drudge and her children are being sidelined. Graceanne has a younger sister, Prudence, who is about to kick over the traces as they say. And, her late husband's cousin is a wealthy duke who has had two marriages, neither of which was happy. He longs for an heir for the obvious reasons (and has conceived of a rather high-handed way to get one) but the magic in this story is that by the end of it he longs for a family, not just an heir, and Graceanne's children are gathered into a loving family life which he will provide for them.

There are the usual turns of Metzger's humour with the crazy servants, silly dog and assorted hangers-on. Watch out for the duke's aunt and his best friend - two zany characters.

The story commences with a Christmas that is full of problems and ends with one a year later full of promises. I like the way it unfolded without rushing, allowing us to get to know the characters and for them to act out the story in a realistic way. I feel this is "real romance" because it is more true to life than some of the silly stories we get these days where the impossible seems to happen over night. It was a slower way of life than we know today and that's part of the charm for me. Graceanne is a new widow when we meet her but she has deep feelings and they very soon turn into attraction for Leland, Duke of Ware. He, too, feels the pull but there are issues that need to be resolved for both parties until the final denoument.

I like this book and enjoyed reading it again as we head towards Christmas. Leland and Graceanne are people I would like to know. The child characters were very well done and the scene involving sliding down bannisters made me laugh out loud.

Life is fast, confusing and rushed these days. Nice to step into a quieter world where life seemed to have more time to unfold. For those who like trad regencies, you will enjoy this.

3.0 out of 5 stars sweet story 1 Dec. 2015
By Arietta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was very enjoyable. What threw me a bit was that I was anticipating a quick, Christmas read, but the book was much longer than I expected. We were in two different countries over a period that lasted the span of two Christmases.

I really liked the H and the h. He loved children, in particular the h's children (twins, who were energetic and destructive and who generally struck terror in the hearts of everyone they met) - his instant love of these boys was genuine and heart-melting and made for many charming scenes.

The h was an honorable woman who was under-appreciated by her tyrannically pious father and misunderstood by the H. I found all of that very believable and the story authentic.

It deserves a re-read by me so that I can really enjoy it the second time around. I think you will enjoy it, too.

Recommended.
