Many thanks to Rachel and Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this Blog Tour.
I loved this book because this is the one that made me react completely. You would find me talking to my kindle, screaming at the characters for having frustrated me with their not so intelligent decisions.
My third book by Emily Harvale, the plot became murkier as secrets were revealed by the man in the photo who was found but he lived too far away for visits. Christmas festivities started. Cat still had a lot to do to build up relationships with Mary and Viola.
The writing gave off a strong bond between the families, the true vibe of Christmas was seen in the prose. Emily Harvale was a clever story spinner who gave me emotions yet kept me hanging at the edge of the cliff. Perfect family is a myth, but a family could be perfect for each. That was the core of the story.
Relationships were brought out stronger with this series, one of my favorites by this author. The words evoked emotions which made me love these characters more even when I was angry at their decisions. But I have made stupid decisions, so who was I to cast a blame.
Overall, an entertaining read, I enjoyed it completely. The last one would be explosive, so I thought.
I received a free ARC from Rachel and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
Emily writes novels, novellas and short stories about friendship, family and falling in love. She loves a happy ending but knows that life doesn’t always go to plan. Her stories are sure to bring a smile to your face and a warmth to your heart.
Cat and Kyra have finally traced the man in the photo they found in Viola’s trunk – thanks to Amias. But Bailey Mitchell lives thousands of miles away and is almost ninety-eight, so meeting him in person is never going to happen. Which is just as well. Exchanging Christmas cards and chatting on social media leads to revelations Cat had not expected.
At least Christmas is looking promising. It may be freezing outside but things have definitely thawed between Cat and her mum, Mary. They’re actually getting on, especially now that Mary is dating Jeremy Stone, the builder working on Viola’s house.
Cat’s also hopeful that Viola’s situation may improve. And when a surprise visitor brings more than just well wishes, Cat’s Christmas takes a delightful turn.
With the festivities in full swing, and snow falling on Merriment Bay, the future’s looking bright. Christmas is a time for miracles and Cat believes she may get one of her own this year if she’s prepared to put the past behind her and open her heart to Love once more.

You are far more patient than I am. This installment had me stamping my little foot in pique!
I agree. I saw your review on Gr and had to snort once or twice…. You were in a right pique
I think I need to give up on serials
Fantastic that you had such a strong emotional reaction to this!! Great review!
