Fans of Christmas romance books and Hallmark movies will enjoy Bay’s latest release, 14 Days to Christmas.
Sebastian has ignored Christmas for the last 10 years and he plans to do the same this year while on the beach in Barbados. Unfortunately his grandmother, whom he’d do anything for, has sprained her ankle and unable to help with the Christmas market in beautiful Snowsly, the Christmas Capital of England.
Despite his initial grinch-like attitude, he slowly comes around to the spirit of Christmas thanks to its biggest fan, Celia Sommers. Celia is trying to hold it all together to make this year the most perfect Christmas. She just didn’t plan on falling in love in the process.
I’m totally a goner for a holiday romance that pits a grinch against a Christmas fanatic. I wouldn’t say that these two were extremes in either case as this was just a sweet love story set in the atmosphere of the most wonderful time of the year.
This book read as if I was watching a Hallmark movie – the small town feel, interfering townsfolk, a woman on the rebound and a man set against falling in love with the town or the woman. Oh, we know how these stories always end don’t we?
While I would have liked Sebastian to have been a bit more grinch-like, the opening really pulls you in and has you wondering just how out of place he’ll be.
Celia was a sweetheart and had nothing but the best of intentions in everything.
I will say that given how sweet the story was, I was pleasantly surprised by how hot their bedroom scenes got. Whew! Those won’t be in any Hallmark movie though you can count on that.
If you’re looking for a holiday romance to get you in the spirit of the season, then check out this book.
