Homecoming in Christmas Falls, Ciara Knight

Homecoming in Christmas Falls, Ciara Knight

Homecoming in Christmas Falls (Return to Christmas Falls Book 1) by [Knight, Ciara]

Genre:  Romance, Women’s fiction

I’d not read any of Ciara’s novels before but liked the sound of this, I love second chance romances.
I should have checked though as Goodreads bio says this series is ” sweet romance series, Sweetwater County (rated PG), is a small town romance full of family trials, friendly competition, and community love.” It is all that, sweet, easy to read, heart warming – but for me drama free, no angst and that’s what I look for. My bad, I could have guessed from the description had i searched further.

The characters are pleasant, not heart-stopping in any way, not full of drama. the most drama seems to be reminiscing over Ashley’s schoolgirl pranks. Brent, a charmer in a nice way, a gentleman and product of a wealthy family. He and Ashley reconnect when she retunrs to town.

Its an easy read, but so cute and sweet it almost made my teeth ache. If you want sweet HEA that’s drama free this is perfect, but for me the downs, the angst, the drama and what make the highs, the happy bits so much better. without that contrast I just don’t enjoy a story.
Its a shortish read at 159 pages, and perfect for those who want quick and easy, happy all the way. Sadly that’s not me. A series I’ll pass on.

Stars: 2.5/3. A good read, just not my sort of read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
