My ๐Ÿ“Review๐Ÿ“: ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

I enjoyed this book so much that after I finished reading it, I purchased the previous two books in the series. I enjoyed those books as well. Give me a warmhearted, all-the-feels, emotional Christmas romance set in a small town and you’ll find me first in line. I know I’ve said this in so many of my reviews but I’ll say it again….Christmas doesn’t last long enough for me to read all the holiday romances released for the season so I start reading them in September. There are so many wonderful Christmas romances available, it’s impossible to read all the ones I want in one season. But I try anyway.

Wrapped Up in Christmas Hope was the first book I read from this author. The story has a good reading pace and a slow development of the H/h relationship. When you meet the two protagonists in this book you’ll understand why they each were so careful with protecting their hearts. Hence the reason for keeping a distance. Or at least trying to.

Both Andrew and Morgan were strong characters and while I liked them both, Morgan was a touch standoffish at first. I couldn’t blame her for that, though.

The premise of the story is one that I found interesting however, because of the angsty plot, I wasn’t able to predict what would happen in the end. The ending was good although, I wished there was an epilogue. I wanted to see for myself how things worked out. I hope I’ll get a glimpse of their lives when/if there is another book in the series. And I can promise you that I will be looking out for that in the future.

While I received an advanced reading copy ofย Wrapped Up in Christmas Hope,ย this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚
