Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas
Since the publication of the second book (Rainshadow Road) in the marvelous Friday Harbor series by Lisa Kleypas is coming closer, I thought it would be fitting to include the first book, Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor, in our Four Days of Christmas event.
I have to admit that I wasn’t the biggest fan of the book when I first read it. Here is the review I first posted on goodreads:
“The first book in the Friday Harbor series by Lisa Kleypas. I was so looking forward to this book and literally quivering when it finally hit the stores:)
The love story was very sweet and adorable, I loved the characters and am looking forward to the second book in the series. Lisa Kleypas is one of my favorite authors and her exceptional writing style got me hooked:)
Still, I have to say, this time I expected a little more and think that the story could have been expanded a lot. I felt as if it wasn’t quite finished in the end. Mark and Maggie could have done with a little more romance and I would have enjoyed to learn more about the time when Holly first moved in with her uncle and their relationship. I’m still going to buy the second book, though, hoping for more romance and detail. Read this book if you want to feel good and get into the holiday spirit:)”
Then I read it again and again and again. I always take it out when I’m in the mood for a feel-good book that leaves a smile on my face and makes me feel warm and cozy. I think I don’t have to describe Lisa Kleypas’ amazing way of storytelling to any of you and if you haven’t read her yet, you should do so immediately. It’s the perfect holiday book and I’m beyond excited about the upcoming releases. Definitely worth checking out and just right for Christmas!
