Thank you goes out to author Trisha Ashley for so kindly sending me a copy of her new book!
TITLE: Twelve Days of Christmas
AUTHOR: Trisha Ashley
GENRE: Chick Lit
RATING: 4 Stars
I have read just about everything author Trisha Ashley has written and have always loved her storylines.
Twelve Days of Christmas, I have to say, is THE perfect holiday read – although I have to admit that I read it in November.
What I loved about this novel is that while it is pretty romantic and, yep, I have to admit it, at times a tad corny, Ashley STILL manages to make it all work, without giving us a novel that is dull, predictable or boring.
The main characters are both very smart – having to deal with heartbreak and the holidays coming – all at the same time. Both try to escape, only to find out the hard way that they don’t really get to decide it all – that fate will be the deciding factor.
Through trial and error and a lot of funny (and some less so) experiences, we get to discover Holly and Jude as they discover each other and themselves.
All of this is, of course being surrounded by blizzards, Christmas decorations and lots and lots of interaction with a host of characters – some of which advance the storyline and others just there for the fun of it.
I loved, loved this book and I really think it would make a perfect holiday gift – especially if it gets read during the “season to be jolly”.
