Yuletide Mishaps - By A. L. Flagg ~ Review
Rating - 3 Stars ***
The title of this book definitely fits with the story. Mishaps is only the tip of the iceberg. Abby owns a cafe in town, Ben has a veterinarian business in town. See where I'm going with this? Yes, boy walk into girls place for lunch, instant attraction, they go on a date, classic romance builds and they can't fight off their feelings and one thing leads to another... Classic story. That is until Abby goes home for Christmas to spend with the family, her flighty, man eating flavor of the month, sister Lucy brings a date home to meet family. Guess who the man is?
As soon as I started reading this book right down to finishing it. I couldn't help but think it sounds like a feel good holiday Christmas movie you would find on the lifetime channel. It is not a bad thing at all, just a story that you know right away what to expect from one moment to the next and how the story would end. For me, it was pretty predictable all the way through the book. You had romance, drama, deceit, family, holidays and more drama! Everything was answered, nothing was hanging in the balance. The story ended as it should. I was left with a warm fuzzy feeling when I was done reading. It would make a good movie. It is a great romantic read for any age, even young adults. Superb writing by A. L. Flagg :)
