Title Christmas at Frozen Falls
Author Kiley Dunbar
Release Date September 4, 2019
Description from Amazon
Sylvie Magnusson is going to be lonely this Christmas. Instead of jetting off for her honeymoon, she’s freezing at home in Cheshire. Guess that’s what happens when your fiancé dumps you a week before your wedding…
Sylvie’s best friend, Nari, plans a trip to see the Northern Lights and get Sylvie’s mojo back. But as their Lapland getaway approaches, Sylvie realises that Frozen Falls is the hometown of Stellan Virtanen, her dreamy Finnish ex-boyfriend, the one that got away.
When they meet, Stellan’s still gorgeous – and her heart is warmed when he shows her the romantic delights of Lapland (as well as some adorable Husky puppies). But when she returns to England, can she really leave Stellan behind? Or will she find that her heart belongs in the frozen North?
Ok, so the name of the game for the month of December is finish up all outstanding items in NetGalley. I actually purposefully saved a Christmas book for December and I’m so glad this is the one I chose.
Some Things I Liked
- Two stories for the price of one! I loved that we got to see two completely different types of love stories develop during this book. Sylvie and Nari are both amazing and totally different characters who were at different places in their lives when the story began. I loved seeing the separate chapters about each of them.
- Sylvie as a narrator. She was a wonderful narrator and I loved her inner thought monologues throughout the book.
- Christmas as a setting. I love Christmas time – and I think it always makes an amazing backdrop to a cute story. There are so many magical elements: cookies, snow, decorating trees, need I go on? Everything about using Christmas in this story made it better.
I’m so glad I saved this book. I loved it and it really kicked me into Christmas-gear. (I’m super behind on my shopping and schedule right now!) But, this story was so cute and it made me want to get back on track.
Recommendations for Further Reading
- The Last Note by Grace McGinty – if you liked all of the feelings and slightly older characters in this story, give The Last Note book a try. It’s a bit more of a tear-jerker, but still has a ton of emotions and a really nice story.
- The Christmas Countdown by Donna Ashcroft – if you like cute, Christmas rom-coms, check out this book.
- Coming Home to Glendale Hall by Victoria Walters – if you like Gilmore Girls and adorable Christmas stories, give this book a read.
