Willow Reed Series Vol. 1
Author: Christine Cunningham
Publisher: Eternal Beginning Publishing
About the Book:
What's the point Christmas without a family of your own? This question haunts Nell as she struggles to get into the holiday spirit. Her walking partner, Hasan seems to be the answer to her prayers until he mentions he doesn't want children. Will Christmas be a disappointment this year too?
Novellas are the type of story that will either really capture my interest or will bore me because of the lack of good character development. "First Snow" won me from the get-go. It handed me characters that I both enjoyed and felt a connection to. Penelope (Nell) was a woman that felt real and true to life with an honest desire and fear. Hasan, Nell's friend, was not as connectable for me - at least not in the beginning, but by the end, I was adoring him.
This story is based around the Christmas holiday, but could be an anytime read. It is sweet, clean, and had a nice cozy quality that I thoroughly enjoyed. With this being the first volume in the series, I'll be anxiously awaiting the next as I really want to find out what the next chapter in Nell's life holds!
