An Endless Christmas (Review)
This review is for the novella "An Endless Christmas" by Cynthia Ruchti. Let me begin by saying I enjoy reading novellas, I love Christmas stories, and I have read a few really good books lately by Cynthia Ruchti.
I liked this book, but I didn't really love it. In this book, Katie and Micah are going to spend Christmas with his family. This is the first time Katie is meeting everyone, and as soon as they walk in the door, Micah proposes to her. Everything is thrown off kilter when she answers no instead of what he hoped for! Katie is looking for the first flight home, but Micah's family takes her in as one of their own anyway and shows her what true family and true love really mean. Katie has never grown up with a loving family, so she really thinks the whole family is unbelievable because of their positivity.
I enjoyed this book for the most part, it was just so cheerful and sappy. I just felt that Katie was so down-in-the-dumps and the entire Binder family was so overly perfect. Of course, the book was a great escape, and an easy read, and it did have a happy ending, even if I did feel the ending was a bit rushed. There were also a LOT of characters to keep up with in the story.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
