    I love languages of flower!

    Candle's Christmas Chair is an exciting short read. Min and Candle had met before and ended quite badly because of misunderstanding. When Candle wanted an invalid chair for his mother, he was recommended to Bradshaw Carriages. He didn't realize that it was the same shop that Min's family owned. So when he saw her again, he couldn't get over the fact that he was still in love with her. Min thought that Candle wanted to court her because of her money, but when she met him after three years she realized that maybe she got it all wrong. My favorite scene was when Min's mother translated to her the language of flowers. Even though wooing through flower is common, but when you send it with a message, it became more thoughtful. I really love each one of the messages and it was really sweet that Candle thought it through. I like the plot and the period. The Bradshaws were amazing and I like that they respect Min's ability. Great short story! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

    A sweet holiday romance

    "Grey eyes that had haunted his dreams for three long years, ever since she'd led him on at a house party for the amusement of her friends, and then left without saying goodbye." I really liked the character of Vicount Avery (Candle). His inner monologue was entertaining and the fact that he wants to help his invalid mother find the perfect chair, endeared him to me. He is a romantic at heart and still in love with the woman that he thought had spurned him. The beginning of the tale is that of misunderstanding and hurt feelings. When Candle visits the chair maker's shop he does not expect to find Min Bradshaw there. Especially surprised that she is the one making the chairs, he finds himself having to do business with a women he still finds himself attracted to. Little does he know that she feels the same way about him, but the reason for her standoffish behavior is a lot different than his own. Min Bradshaw was a little bit more complex in her feelings. She has a lot of inner turmoil and reason not to trust easily. Being part of a family that is in trade, makes her not as welcome with the high sticklers of society. Her nemesis particularly a catty, conniving woman named Lady Norton and her equally sordid brother Kitteridge. Min, accepts the business that Candle presents, but is on guard when he becomes determined to mend fences. He offers to have tea and they find themselves in the presence of the horrible brother and sister act. After the confrontation, Candle and Min express their reasons for breaking up their relationship and figure out that it was a big misunderstanding. However, Min, because of societies standards, does not feel that a relationship can progress between them, due to their status differences. "She would not fall in love with a peer. She could not. She was not so foolish. Was she?" That is the one thing that plagues her mind throughout the rest of the book and it's a journey that is rather amusing. One of my favorite parts of the story is when Candle attempts to change her mind by sending her different arrangements of flowers everyday. Min's mother deciphers the message that each bouquet means and it was interesting to find out. (NOTE: For those of you who are interested, there is a guide at the end of the book past the acknowledgements that tells you what each flower means.) If Candle didn't win over Min's heart over that, I'm sure it was with this line, "...But none of them matter, on either side. You matter. We matter. Don't let them come between us." My thoughts: This was a sweet holiday romance, with endearing characters. Nothing steamy in this novel, except for a few naughty thoughts from Candle. Other than that, only kissing. But really, there doesn't need to be anything more than that. I only wish that Lady Norton and her brother received a little bit more punishment, they would have deserved it. In the end, it doesn't really matter what anybody thinks, love is more important. I'm glad the characters realized this and it ended well for them.
