First things first: I received an ARC through NetGalley.
The book comes out at the 13th of november, so tomorrow. If you are looking for something cute and wonderful for the christmas time, you should totally check it out. It's totally worth it.
And so it has begun. Christmas stories. I love them. I only have read a few though and I'm in desperate need of some more (so any recommendations would be very welcome).
I have to admit, I started reading this and all of the sudden I got super busy and it took me a bit longer than expected to finish it. Otherwise this is a book that you can finish in one sitting, given the fact that it has like 70 pages.
I love the writing in this short story and it makes me really want to read some more stuff from the author. The dialogs in the story were brilliant and had me laughing quite a lot. I just love how when things got a bit sad, you could just count on one of the characters to lighten up the mood. I enjoyed that a lot.
I also really liked the story. Giving the shortness of the book we couldn't really see that much of Harriet's healing after her husbands death. But given how she thought about her life after his death and how she acted now, you could totally see a big difference.
The revelation of her husband's secret made me feel so relieved. Cause that could have gone in a completely different direction, that would have been much more frustrating and painful.
Overall I just love this story and will totally read it again closer to christmas.
