Christmas Kismet by Jemma Grey

eBook Novella
I've been welcoming the Christmas spirit by reading a few holiday books this season. I recently decided to read an 86 page novella by Jemma Grey titled Christmas Kismet, which I downloaded to my iPad and read in one afternoon. 

Christmas Kismet is my first read by author Jemma Grey. I thought it was a good read filled with fun leading characters and a decent plot. I liked that Christmas Kismet is a fun light, read to pass the time away during the holiday season. I'm giving Christmas Kismet a 3 stars our of 5 stars rating.

Amazon Product Review:
Kate Murray has always loved Christmas.

Until this year.

This year, Christmas represents an aching reminder of all that Kate is supposed to have and all that she has lost. Her fiance ran off with her twin sister and Kate would rather hide and wallow in her misery than spend Christmas with her family.
This will be the first Christmas that she has ever spent alone.  
Kate rents a secluded cabin for the holidays and hopes to find herself again as she picks up the pieces of her shattered heart.

Instead, Kate finds Henri Archer, a sexy architect who owns the vacation cabin that she rented. Henri is undeniably handsome and although Kate knows that it is entirely too soon for her heart to embark on a new relationship, her attraction to Henri is impossible to ignore.

Since the death of his wife three years ago, Henri has struggled to get through Christmas. Spending an unexpectedly romantic holiday secluded in a winter wonderland with Kate has Henri wondering if Christmas wishes really do come true.

Together, Henri and Kate rekindle the joys of the Christmas season - each contemplating bearing the scars of their pasts for a second chance at love.

Kate fears that by opening her heart to Henri she risks re-opening herself to the heart ache that threatened to destroy her.

Henri hopes that two broken hearts can come together and mend each other - a true Christmas miracle.

I think it would have been interesting to read Christmas Kismet as a full length novel. I think a few more details could have been flushed out in more detail... Like the relationship between Kate and her twin sister, Emma... And why Emma and Kate's fiance, Shane, decided to have an affair. Plus, learning a few other minor things in more detail that could have been flushed out.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
