Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.

Gwynn Michaud is a widow with a family waiting for her back in New Hampshire. She’s only in New York to see the lighting of her honored Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. And her widowered host, Professor Theophilus Stellakis, has no intention of growing attached to this house guest his daughter invited over. But Gwynn and Theo may be in for some surprises in Comfort and Joy by author Lynette Sowell.

I found this novella to be warm, down to earth, and engaging, the story moving at a nice clip without rushing. The romance is well-developed, balancing attraction with the ease of Gwynn and Theo’s dialogue. It also raises realistic points about finding new love later in life. The reading was like sitting down to watch a cozy Hallmark Christmas movie without commercials.

This was my first time ever reading this author, and this romantic and, well, comforting holiday tale has certainly put her writing on my radar.
