I had really enjoyed John Eyre by the same author, and when this was offered as a freebie I snapped it up.

I hated it. Loathed it. I rolled my eyes at least once a chapter, and I only slogged through to the end to see if the karma bit those characters I hated and, spoiler, it didn't.

esurient Even the romance that was the main plot was such stupid fluffy gloss that I'm rather wistfully thinking that fanfic in a future setting where the spouses murdered and manipulated each other would be a fantastic read. 2w
esurient The best I can say about this is that the writing was competent and I liked how the author deliberately introduced historical details of economics and non-aristocratic society into the book, even I wanted about 300 times more of especially the latter. 2w
esurient But I wanted to shake the stupid characters and I'm infuriated that those mild 'villain' / obstacle characters all ended the story with exactly what they wanted and barely a tsk to their actions. 2w
esurient I wanted the house to burn down. Not recomended. My next read by this author will be only if I can find a library copy. 2w
esurient (Which is a shame because I was really excited about her new one releasing next week.) : 2w

This was a sweet romance and short so I was able to read it in a couple of hours last night. I liked it. I'll have to look into more books by this author. #WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers #NewYearSpecial @StayCurious @Andrew65

Started this earlier and I'm enjoying it so far. I'm about halfway through with it, but I need to put it aside and do some cooking for tomorrow. It's a perfect, cozy read for this chilly, rainy Christmas Eve.

#BookReport This week I overloaded on holiday books and I think I am done. All were ok reads but not outstanding. I am still reading the Winterson one story a day. It a great collection and I enjoy her reflections and recipes between each story. I‘ve made no progress on buddy reads this week, I couldn‘t get into the Allende and have no clue what‘s next but have a week off work and hope to have my nose in a book as much as possible.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! Great week!!! 1mo

I found this holiday historical romance sweet & endearing. Although it takes place in the 1860s, it has an Austen-ish vibe in both characters & story & while predictable, that works here.

It‘s also a quick read & a bonanza for the #WinterGames2021 #WGWordSearch with 217 words (bless Kindle search) so 2170 points, plus 25 for a holiday read + 1 so 2,196 (+ readathon points of course) for the #TeamGameSleighers 🤗

I‘ll list the readathons below

MeganAnn Stacked for the Austen-ish vibe! I‘ve been seeing some mixed reviews on this one. 1mo

I love this cover and the Christmas atmosphere in this novella. Sophie and Ned‘s slightly second chance romance is so sweet and charming and I gobbled this up.

This is my #Doublespin for December.

I loved the setting for this book. The story is set at Christmas and is about a wealthy businessman who sees a young woman of the noble class and is instantly drawn to her. At this time it is very difficult to court, much less wed, outside of your class. The Victorian rules are strict and courtship is not easy. This makes for a great story and I loved the spark between them and how they worked at find their footing with each other. 4.5⭐
