In 1750, a master woodcarver poured all his unrequited love, passion, and longing into his masterpiece—a gorgeous Christmas angel for his beloved’s tree. When the man he loved tossed the angel away without a second thought, a miracle happened. The angel was found by another who brought the woodcarver True Love.
Since then, the angel has been passed down, sold, lost and found, but its magic remains. Read the romances inspired by (and perhaps nudged along by) the Christmas Angel through the years. Whether it’s the 1880’s New York (Kim Fielding), the turn-of-the-century (Jordan L. Hawk), post World War II (L.A. Witt), Vietnam-era (N.R. Walker), the 1990’s (Anyta Sunday), 2018 Europe (RJ Scott), the Christmas Angel has a way of landing on the trees of lonely men who need it’s blessing for a very Merry Christmas and forever HEA.
I wanted to love this – I’m a fan of the author and the blurb totally had me hooked! Prince, snobby museum guy, small country – sounded really cute.
However, it was really confusing and there wasn’t a lot of story here. We got a bit of cute flirting but I wasn’t sure where the conflict was which made for a rather tepid romance.
I enjoyed the fake new country but wasn’t as impressed by the rest of the story – especially as compared to the others in this series. This was my very least favorite and I don’t recommend it much – the others were so strong that this one looks quite faded next to them.
Others have loved this more than I did, so please look at their reviews – it might just be a case of “it’s not you – it’s me.”
