    quick, enjoyable read to put you in the spirit

    Spinster Patience relies on the income from writing her advice column for her living and is nothing but annoyed by her overbearing, Scottish employer, Dougal MacHugh. But when competition with a rival publisher leads to a frantic writing and release schedule, and lots of time spent together, Patience begins to see Dougal in a different light and he begins to see more in her than the arrogant spinster he had presumed her to be. The two begin to grow closer and recognize feelings for each other, but both have their own secrets and ambitions that may be enough to keep their relationship strictly professional. This was a quick, enjoyable read to put you in the festive spirit and I'd recommend it for a holiday diversion. I received a complimentary ARC via NetGalley. Thank you!

    Patience For Christmas by Grace Burrows is being released today, 12-18-18, in e-book form. This novella was previously included in The Virtues Of Christmas in 2016. This was my first read and I found it witty and well written. At times the lead characters are amazingly close to the repartee of Nick and Norah Charles. They play off each other well. As a person owned by a cat, I think King George is inspired and to be adored (my cat made me say that). Our heroine is Patience Friendly, a fiery-haired, and tempered, advice columnist. This spinster has found a way to apply her talents to a job that pays the rent. Using her nom de plume has allowed Patience to live independently, not on the charity of distant relatives. Unfortunately the struggle for survival has left her a little isolated and lonely too. A dog would be a good companion (my dog made me say that). Our hero is Dougal MacHenry, handsome, Scottish owner and publisher of the circulation that carries Patience's popular column. He's handsome, Scottish, and has a burr, that's really all you need to know (sigh). He thinks about, and enjoys meeting with, Patience a little more than an employer should. He thinks she's pretty and smells good. When he manages to get a kiss under the mistletoe the romance race is started. To increase sales, and intrigue Patience, Dougal proposes a pen-to-pen contest with her popular rival. It's a he said, she said competition over the 12 days of Christmas. This requires the couple to spend lots and lots of time together. It's fun to keep up with the number of sweet treats mentioned and consumed during a mere eight chapters. It's astounding. As this is a romance book there is a happy ending. We'd be up in arms if there wasn't. Receiving an ARC is a privilege, and one I enjoy. Being able to share my opinion is a pleasure. Both are free and without obligation. Happy reading.
