My Review of Girl At Christmas

I love novellas because they are a fast read, but you still get all the feels in a heart-warming holiday romance. Reading Girl At Christmas was like watching a sweet Hallmark movie. You know that you’ll get a happy ending, but it’s still so much fun to read and experience the holiday feelings. While I always anticipate a happy romantic ending, this book didn’t start with a cheerful beginning.

I really liked and sympathized with Tammy, because she was so shocked when her long-term boyfriend dumped her right before Christmas. She and her friends try to make the best of it, but she’s having a tough time. One of her co-workers is a heavy guy and he has just find out that the heart disease that killed his father in his thirties has now hit him. His doctor gives him beta blockers and tells him to lose weight.

Lawrence is a good patient and stays on his diet. He loses a good bit of weight and Tammy starts to realize that he’s looking pretty good. They become closer and go out, but when they walk away from each other Tammy hears a noise and looks back. Lawrence is on the ground! She rushes back to him and begins trying to save his life. Will he make it or end up like his father? Will they get together? You’ll have to read this easy-to-read romance and find out.
