Can you tell I’m a winter person? Yes, I’m reviewing a Christmas book in June and no, I’m not mad about it. June and July is the time for Hallmark Christmas releases and A Christmas to Remember is the first one I’ve read so far (yup I’ve already started another). I couldn’t have had a better start to my Hallmark Christmas book marathon. Check out my full review below!
A Christmas to Remember by Rebecca Moesta
I received an early copy of this book to review
Release date: June 26, 2018
She can’t remember who she is,
but she likes who she’s become when she’s with him…
Jennifer needs a break. The perfectionist TV star heads to a mountain retreat for a restful, relaxing holiday. But when she gets caught in a blizzard and crashes her car, Jennifer is left with more than a wreck; she’s left with amnesia.
John, a small-town veterinarian and single dad, finds the confused Jennifer wandering on the road. He’s used to taking care of others; he’s built for this. When he takes her in, he and his children give her more than shelter…they try to help her figure out who she is.
As Jennifer and John make new memories, their connection to one another grows. But how can they even think about romance when they don’t know her true identity?
This was such a feel good book, writing this review I’m smiling just thinking about it. I flew through this one in a day and devoured all parts of it.
The first thing I noticed about this book is how descriptive the writing is. Being able to read about a snowy town full of festivities and be able to picture all of that while being in the dead of summer says a lot. Every scene was detailed to the point where I felt like I was watching a movie rather than reading a book.
I found the character development to be especially great in this one. A lot of the times characters will change their personality within one chapter but in this book it takes time for both Jennifer and John to change. Jennifer realizes her own worth over the course of the entire novel and so does John. This is a really important message that a lot of feel good contemporary books don’t always send across. But in this one we read about everything from grief and loss to love and passion.
If you couldn’t tell I really did have a good time with this book. It was entertaining and it helped me escape my hectic and stressful life right now which is just what I needed.
SOOO who else is excited for fall/winter because now I can’t wait. I’m over the heat. Do any of you read Hallmark books at this time when they release?
Would you guys want to see more reviews of the other Christmas books I will be binge reading in for the next month? I know it’s a bit odd for this time of year but its a really great time to read and review them. Let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
