Two well written Christmas romance
on 22 November 2013
The magic of home contains 2 old Favourites from Nora Robert- Home for Christmas and Search for Love.
Home for Christmas the first book was my favourite of the two, it was fast paced, and filled with christmas spirit. Ten years had passed since Jason Law and Faith Kirkpatrick declared their love for each other; but when Jason left to make something of himself, to prove himself before coming back for Faith, little did he know that his leaving had put Faith in a difficult position. Acting for the best she marries another, leaving Jason bereft when he found out. However 10yrs later Jason is home for Christmas, what will happen when he find out that Faith is a divorced single mother, will he stay for good or will be over powered by wanderlust?
The second book the Search for Love, starts out slow paced but gradually picks up momentum towards the end. Serenity Smith was coming to terms with the recent loss of her loving parents in the little Georgetown home she had shared with them in Washington when she received a summons to visit a Country estate in Brittany belonging to her grandmother the Comtesse de Kellergen. Serenity did not know she had a grandmother, why did her parents never mention her and why the sudden summons from the Comtesse and who is this her grandson the current Count de Kellergen who appeared to dislike her on sight. Sit back for an interesting unravelling of family secrets and mysteries, amidst which cupids arrow strikes some unwilling victims. It was slow paced initially but picks up nicely, although I felt the Count was not my ideal Hero, as I found him arrogant, and unromantic.I felt he needed some refinement despite his aristocratic genes,and should have worked harder to earn the heroine. That having been said, it is a very well written and good story with a strong emotional and heartfelt lessons in love, forgiveness, self sacrifice and being unassuming. It will definitely bring a few tears to your eyes.
