This is a very quick read that didn't really have much going on. There was a hint of a romance between Janna and Alistair but nothing to en-capture the heart and rejoice the Christmas spirit. There was not even one kiss shared between them like you would expect in a romance. This story could have carried on a bit further like exploring events on Christmas day. I'm so glad this was a free buy, this story is okay but not great and once read it is unlikely to be reread.
In the course of being stuck at the family estate Janna and Alistair explore their mutual dislike for Christmas and is that romance that can be felt in the air?
Nice easy read and some wonderful characters.
She's a bah-humbug type, at her Xmas do, and unknown to her, he's a client of the firm, whose business is supplying Xmas trees, and lives in Scotland. She's from Chelsea and in PR and advertising, but his firm is doing badly, and he hates London; he's there under duress. She badmouths Xmas, which shocks him, so there ends their...brief interaction. He then bogs off home, so does she, and the next day she's sent to Aberdeen, to meet with 'a client' and take care of an emergency.
I kind of think the author was hoping for 'sparks flew', but the only sparks I saw was when he got angry at some of her helpful suggestions. No real attraction, though allegedly he had to remind himself she was there on business, and then she got snowed in. Even I, who hate sales and marketing, know that staying in busines and in competition is all about diversifying and USPs, but this guy didn't have a clue - and he was in charge of a seasonal business. Puhleese.
No passion, nothing even vaguely Xmassy romantic, but plenty of snow, trees and cold. Sorry. A waste of my time. But, the style was good, there were no errors and clearly, someone with editing skills had cast an eye over this.
This was a very short book about a London business woman and a Scottish land owner. They are brought together as Alastair's Christmas tree company uses Janna's advertising firm. This wasn't really a love story, more of a promise of one that could develop in the future. My thoughts when I started the book were that I enjoyed the authors writing style but this was spoilt but the rushed feel of the story. It seemed to follow the [u]old[/u] Mills and Boon style of trying to create conflict between the hero and heroine, only to have it resolved with a deeper understanding of their personalities. However, the book was too short for this kind of conflict and Alastair's 360 degree turn on the idea of a golf course felt contrived and unrealistic. I felt that it would have been better published as a short story in a woman's magazine or as part of a compilation of short stories, rather than a stand alone book. I didn't really enjoy this story but would read other works by this author as I did like her writing style.
The story itself was good, but the ending could have been so much more. It is a shame more wasn't made of it and the story was made longer. Okay for a freebie.
