    Not quite the innocent story I was expecting

    Hmmm ... this was not the innocent and cozy book that I was expecting. After having fallen for the cover I was anticipating a much more Christmassy affair from Debbie Johnson. It is a cutely designed cover but the first few chapters in the novel appeared to be verging on erotica without any real depth. I am not a person who minds a bit of sex in a book however there comes a point where one gets a bit tired from the lack of story development. Furthermore, the the insta love premise was a little unrealistic; but given the genre, this is forgivable. Predictable and unrealistic plots do not always ruin a book for me. As for the characters, neither Rob or Leah were particularly likable. Rob ... for lack of a better word ... was a complete jackass who could not make up his mind and as a result took out his anger on those who cared for him (especially Leah). Leah on the other hand held on to Rob much longer than she should have; she came across as weak and this became very frustrating as a reader. On the flip side, this novel had some redeeming qualities. I believe it did include an important and very real theme about grief, guilt and moving on. Overall I have mixed feelings about "Cold Feet at Christmas." I wouldn't say that it was a bad read by any means. I certainly felt that it was worth reading ... especially since I have read Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Jumper which focuses on Rob's twin brother, Marco Cavelli but I believe that this book wasn't quite as good as other Debbie Johnson books. Bottom Line: I would probably recommend this book to fans of the chicklit genre. Just don't expect a cozy little Christmas read.

    Enjoy able read.

    Great and diverse characters. Lots of twists and turns... And great sexual chemistry! Not just your usual romance.

    Irritating characters made this a DNF for me

    DNF at 75%. Leah Harvey finds her fiance boffing one of the bridesmaids at their wedding and runs off (in the groom's vintage car) only to find herself stranded in the Scottish countryside. Dressed only in a flimsy silk wedding dress and Jimmy Choo stilettos (does he even do flats?), she starts walking cross-country in the snow towards distant lights. The lights belong to a lonely cottage, rented for the season by Rob(erto) Cavelli, an American billionaire who hates Christmas and likes to spend the season alone, drinking whisky, in a scottish cottage he rents every year. One thing leads to another and Rob and Leah decide to have a no-strings attached holiday fling. But when Christmas is over Rob invites Leah to come to Chicago to start afresh, the deal being that they must go back to being just friends. Of course both Leah and Rob have deep dark secrets that colour their beliefs and behaviours, in Rob's case this makes him a hypocritical, judgemental, neurotic, unhinged, self-obsessed jerk. In Leah's case this makes her a bit of a doormat, although apparently irresistible to the opposite sex. I was under the mistaken impression that this was a novella, I started reading it months ago, lost interest and picked it up again this week hoping that the Christmas season would make the book more engaging. Sadly it didn't, when Leah and Rob got to Chicago all I wanted to do was wring Rob's neck and give Leah a good shaking. Having read 75% of the novel I couldn't bear to read another page which is a pity because Debbie Johnson is a must-read author for me.

    Loved it

    I think this is close to one of my favourite Debbie Johnson books, although Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe and Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe were awesome too. They all left me feeling good inside. Love her writing!
