Review: The Christmas Cottage/Ever After

The Christmas Cottage (2 Book Series)

About the Book:
exciting reissue of both books in the beloved Christmas Cottage series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Samantha Chase, just in time for the holidays .

Legend has it that any couple who spends the night in the Christmas Cottage shall have love everlasting...

Lacey Quinn does not believe in happily-ever-after or the legend of the Christmas Cottage. But her best friend Ava does, and she's the one getting married. It's Lacey's job to make sure everything at the cottage is perfect for the newlyweds. Instead, she finds herself snowed in with the bride-to-be's brother, Ean Callahan, and begins to wonder if fairy tales really can come true.

Ava Callahan wants desperately to believe in love everlasting. But when Brian McCabe walks back into her life and upsets her carefully organized world, her commitment to perfection makes it hard for her to accept the love that's right in front of her. Will it take a night in the Christmas Cottage for Ava and Brian to find their happy ending?

My Comments:
If you are my age, you'll remember a song from our teen years:  "You'd think that people would have had enough of silly love songs; I look around me and I see it isn't so, oh no". The world is not only full of silly love songs, it is full of silly love stories and these two are in that genre.  While The Christmas Cottage gives Lacey her happily ever after, both stories are really more about Ava and her silly attachment to the legend of the Christmas Cottage.  I liked that Brian made her grow up and look at real life and not her silly ideas that everything would be fine after a night in the cottage.  Yes, I found Ava annoying and immature.  Still they are Christmas romances so you know that in the end there is plenty of kissing under the mistletoe.  

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.  Grade:  B-
