A fast and fresh festive tale
This is a short and sweet tale about a blind date gone wrong – or maybe just right.
I loved Cordi – she was so relatable and I rooted for her from the start. Russ was the same – the handsome stranger who can take a girl’s breath away when he walks into a diner for pie. And he appreciates her appetite for said pie. Where can I get my very own Russ?
The story was fun, the writing was fresh and I really got a festive glow from reading the beginning of the romance between Cordi and Russ. I even found myself laughing out loud on a couple of occasions – always a bonus.
We get a spotify playlist to go along with the story – basically songs are name checked at different parts of the story. It’s a fun wee trick that just amps up the Christmas feelings.
The only reason I didn’t award the story 5 stars was because the head hopping between characters mid-paragraph did cause me some confusion at times.
Overall a great, festive story that will leave you with a smile on your face. And it will only take you 20 minutes or so to read. I very much enjoyed it.
