  • Perfect Holiday Novella for standalone or series

    Once again Katy Regnery gifts readers a story they can delight in. As I sit here contemplating my review, there is a burning question that comes to mind: Series, Standalone or Introduction read? What if I said yes to all three? As a series, this is definitely a must read for fans of the Blueberry Lane series. The story concludes our much needed HEAs for the Story sisters with insight on the connection to the Atwell family. As always, Ms. Regnery blesses the reader with both back story and current to have you connect. You walk away at the end content and happy to say goodbye to our beloved series. As a standalone if you are fan of second chance romance, this novella gives you two stories with different backstories for a satisfying read. Elizabeth's tale theme is 'misunderstanding' whereas Jane's is 'the one that got away'. With each heroine's story, Ms. Regnery delivers both backstory to not have an unfamiliar reader feel lost, and the connection story is never rushed. Both Elizabeth and Jane are strong female leads and there counterpoints in Merit and Amity are perfect blend of alpha-y male goodness. The reader also is given just enough heat to turn it up and feel the passion. If you are looking for that quick, feel good holiday read while catching a flight, you not be disappointed. If a reader is looking for an introduction, this would be definitely a recommendation from me for someone unfamiliar with Katy's writing or wanting to test the waters before diving in the entire series. The novella covers a complete story without needing to have the experience of reading the others. There are no obvious spoilers (at least for this reader) that would ruin the experience of the other novels. As followers of my reviews should now by now, I'm a very HUGE fan of Katy Regnery's stories. She writes without raking me over the angst and delivers a HEA I need. But for me, I tend to grade novellas on a harsher curve. It's difficult to deliver a complete for me, and I hate feeling abandoned if I can't continue on quickly. However, this gem ticks off ever necessary box I require. Never rushed to completion, understood the characters, some witty mixed with sweet banter - this story delivered it all. 5 out of 5 stars

  • A perfect Christmas present!

    4 stars — First of all, can I just say how happy I am that this exists at all? I was so bummed when this series was discontinued without getting Elizabeth and Jane’s stories, so having even just this little bit to give me closure was such a gift for a fan like me. (also note: you do not need to read the other books to enjoy this one I don’t think…you’ll have a better experience if you have, but I don’t think you lose anything if you haven’t) Now, onto the two romances… I can’t believe Elizabeth made me cry!! I mean, if you’ve read The Story Sisters series at all, she is NOT the nice sister! I was so confused by her coming into this novella, but in the end I actually liked her and Merit’s story the best. Go figure! I felt like I really understood their past together, and how it shaped Elizabeth into the person she became. For such a short amount of time, I felt like I got the most out of their love story, and I really felt their chemistry and bought the turnaround. Now, don’t get me wrong, I wanted more. Heck, I wouldn’t have minded a flashback to the “best day”. But at least it felt complete. Though I also wouldn’t have minded learning what happened with the company, and seeing Elizabeth come back into the fold and have her sisters understand what she was trying to do. Jane and Amity were both seriously adorable characters, but I didn’t feel as much chemistry between the two of them…it was definitely a sweeter story. And in the end, even with all the flashbacks we *did* get between them, I still felt like I needed more to really get entrenched in their connection. Which is not to say it wasn’t there, this one just wasn’t quite as successful at feeling complete in their short time. I can’t help but wonder what their original stories were supposed to be like…perhaps Elizabeth’s felt more complete because it was always going to be Merit and Elizabeth, so their past was probably already mapped out for the full length novel. But what would Jane and Dash’s story have been like, you know? The problem is that it had all the little tastes and flavours that I’ve come to love from the Blueberry Lane books, but it was just way too short to really dive in and truly satisfy me. Which is not the author’s fault, she did the best she could to give us desperate fans some kind of closure without taking away from the books that are generating more income for her. And I liked that there were these two interweaving stories, but because we got two couples instead of just one, and in a NOVELLA to boot, well it just felt even shorter than novellas usually do. It just made me mourn the lack of full length novels for these two. And made me want to rail against the supposed fans who didn’t support the series and have ruined it for all the rest of us. 😛 I want to have faith that they’ll all come out of the woodwork and make this novella a success, but…well…humans are flawed. So yeah. I thoroughly enjoyed being back in this world, it had everything I love about this series, just unfortunately crammed into a smaller format. But it was still a very Merry Christmas present to me. Thanks Ms. Regnery!
