As I have mentioned before, a book cover – like a wine label – can sway me to check a book out. This was the case in my selection of A Cosy Candlelit Christmas by Tilly Tennant. Super cute cover that brings all the holiday feels.
The book’s premise was interesting too: a 29 year-old Isla, learns she inherits a home from her father’s mother; a father whom she has not seen since she was 5. Inheriting her new home comes with stipulations: Isla will need to figure out which ones are genuine and which ones are not. Throw in a “love triangle” of some sort: two suitors, both very different…who will she spend Christmas with?
A few adorable characters, a few annoying ones. The story line was interesting enough with a few plot lines you will want to continue reading on; but it was not a quick, breezy read. There is not much dialogue to break up the long paragraphs of background details. (Not sure if I am the only one who feels this way, but sometimes it is nice to get a section of dialogue that makes the pages turn faster…it builds my reading momentum). All in all, it was ok; not a fan of the abrupt ending.
I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.
