All About Romance

New Reviews

I love the Christmas season and all the traditions that come with it. Well, most of the traditions are good ones. Iím not particularly enamored of the plethora of cutesy Hallmark Christmas movies that run on TV almost 24/7 during the month of December. They are just too far removed from reality for my taste. What Happens at Christmas was essentially a Hallmark movie in book form, which I suppose tells you how I felt about it.


Iím going to admit right off the bat that Iíve only read a couple of books by Ms Laurens, and that the last one I read was such a disappointment that Iíve not read her since. Her writing style is too flowery and repetitive for my taste, and I found the characterisation severely lacking. That said, sheís an incredibly popular author and there is obviously a reason for that, so just because those books didnít work for me doesnít mean they wonít work for others. Having heard that her series of Barnaby Adair mysteries were a little different from her usual fayre, when this book came up for review, I thought Iíd give her another chance.
