Brief Reviews: The Perfect Christmas; Kat, Incorrigible; What You Have Left

The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber, AF, 2009, Playaway audio, 4hrs, rating=2.5

Cassie at 33yo was ready to settle down but where was Mr. Right?  No luck in dating so she turned to a matchmaker for help.  At a whopping fee of $30,000, she was serious and determined to jump the hoops required of her.  Then of course something predictable happens and a different route was taken.

This is a good book if you're in a cheesy mood ... a quick corny predictable read.  I suspect reading this during the holidays would put you in that mood and so this might be more entertaining then.

Kat, Incorrigible by  Stephanie Burgis, YR, 2011, 298p, rating=3

The cover set me up for a cute read and so it was.  Kat indeed had her sassy moments.  This was Anne of Green Gables meets Harry Potter but not near their caliber of greatness.  An entertaining read nonetheless ... whimsical, English, swashbuckling romance, and sisterhood.  Oh, I liked the step-mother's turn of character towards the end.

What You Have Left by Will Allison, AF, 2010, 210p, rating=3

Stumbled into this while on the hunt for the author's other book Long Drive Home.  My library didn't have that book so I picked this one up instead.  ~Pretty crazy cover, huh?  The baby's pretty high up!  When she falls back down she's 30 years older ... the time it took between when Wylie Greer dropped off his 5yo daughter, Holly, at his father-in-law's to when they saw each other again.  In between, there were stories of grief, reflections, racing, love, and understanding.  The dynamics of longing was center.  I found the book most appealing through Lyle's point of view.  This book was an overall good read.
