Third RaRaResources blog tour of the day, and fifth and final tour of the day! Many thanks to Rachel for inviting me to take part in the blog tour for ‘My Christmas Fake Fiance’ by Linda West, and for the ARC. Here is my review:
Snowflakes are falling on Kissing Bridge Mountain, and Devlin is going home at last. But he can’t go home without a fiance, even if it has to be a fake one!
When he meets smalltown girl, Allie, who has a Christmas crisis of her own -they strike up a deal. Soon, the fickle snow flurries of fate send them down a destined road they never expected…
What does TWG think?
I’ll be honest. The whole ‘fake fiance/boyfriend/girlfriend’ thing has been done many, MANY times before, so for me the surprise element wasn’t really there. However, I have never read a version that has had me laughing out loud from the get go.
Seriously! Almost straight away I was giggling at Allie and her bambi on ice type personality! She was such a breath of fresh air, and was such an antidote to Devlin’s foul nature. A match made in heaven some might say!
With the amount of times I giggled, the predictability factor didn’t seem as important anymore. Yes, I could see what was coming, and yes, it was incredibly clear what the intentions of the characters were, yet Linda West very cleverly wrote her story in a way that enticed me and left me wanting popcorn like a good movie.
This book may be short, but it sure packs a punch with its lighthearted, laugh out loud, and cosy vibe. I throughly enjoyed escaping into a Linda West novel – it definitely wont be the last!
