Christmas Diamond -- A Novella by Hallee Bridgeman

eBook Novella
I downloaded a free copy of the Christmas Diamond by Hallee Bridgeman from Amazon to my Kindle -- This in no way affects the thoughts expressed in my review as follows below. 

The Christmas Diamond is a short, Christmas romance novella with a very predictable happy ending!! The Christmas Diamond is approximately 117 pages in length.

I wasn't overly impressed with The Christmas Diamond... Like all the other holiday reads I've read the past few days, this story was big on romance and predictability. The story and characters were captivating enough to read  about and I guess in some regards it is nice to have an easy breezy fun and fast read for the holidays... But do all Christmas themed have to be such predictable/feel good reads that lack any depth to them??? 

The following is the book summary of the Christmas Diamond, which I found on Amazon:
Inspired by the Jewel Series and Virtues and Valor series. 
Faith Green spends her career as a pilot honoring her grandmother's heroic efforts during World War II. When she's invited to participate in a Christmas time air show in the Florida Keys, she thinks it will be exciting to fly somewhere warm and sunny instead of her cold and wintery London home. But on her first day, she encounters a lifeless body washed up onto the beach. 
TJ Viscolli is the eldest child and only son of a wealthy and powerful corporate mogul but instead of modern business his interests lie in history. Months away from a Ph.D., he has an accident windsurfing at his Key West home. When he is resuscitated by a beautiful women, at first he thinks that a Christmas angel has come to save him.
 The couple share the common bond of a love of history and romance blossoms. But an accident during the Christmas Eve air show threatens their hope of a life spent together. Will God provide a Christmas miracle, or will the future look cold and dark like a winter night?
I'm giving the Christmas Diamond a rating of 6.5 stars out of 10 stars. Until my next post, happy reading!!
