Home For Christmas by Patricia Kay

eBook Novella
The last title I read during the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon was Home For Christmas by Patricia Kay, which is a novella approximately 185 pages in length.

 As a side note, I was able to download a free copy of Home For Christmas from Amazon to my Kindle, but this in no way affects the thoughts expressed in my review as follows below. 

I enjoyed reading Home For Christmas, even if it had a predictably happy ending! It has a lot going on within its pages from start to finish. I enjoyed the storyline and its development. The characters were fun for the most part even though the main characters of Quinn & Peter were a tad exasperating at times!

The following is a plot summary for Home For Christmas via the Amazon website:

Quinn Riordan hasn't been home for Christmas in more than ten years -- ten long years since she's seen her family and Chagrin Falls, the town where she grew up. It's been that long since the sister she once adored had stolen the man Quinn loved. But when Quinn's beloved Aunt Fiona has a bad fall and breaks her leg, Quinn can't stay away any longer. In order to help her aunt, she has to go home and face her past. But along with her past, the trip home brings her an even more difficult challenge in the form of her aunt's boarder, Peter Kimball.

Peter has been curious about Fiona's niece ever since he first saw her framed photo in Fiona's living room. He hasn't been able to understand how someone Fiona speaks of so glowingly could so selfishly stay away for so long. He's prepared to dislike Quinn and is stunned to very quickly realize he doesn't. On the contrary, he's attracted to Quinn and wants nothing more than to get to know her better. But Quinn isn't the only one who has been running from her past. Peter has avoided confronting his demons by staying away from the place where he lost everything he held most dear.

Can these two troubled people overcome the problems that have haunted them for so long? Will they be brave enough to forget and forgive and move forward into a future that promises to be filled with more happiness and love than they ever imagined? In the capable hands of best-selling author Patricia Kay, this heartwarming story will be the perfect accompaniment to your own holiday season.
I'm giving Home For Christmas by Patricia Kay a rating of 7.5 stars out of 10 stars. Until my next post, happy reading!!
