About the novella: From USA TODAY bestselling author Annette Lyon comes an enchanting Christmas novella: Claire Jennings is headed home to spend Christmas with her family, riding the train with Will Rhodes, who grew up across the street. He may be twenty-one now, but she can’t forget his torturous teasing from their school years. At the rail station, Claire learns that her home is under quarantine because her little brother has measles. She’s stuck in town, away from her family, on her favorite holiday. Will stays behind with her, and as Christmas Day approaches and her homesickness deepens, she discovers that perhaps he has changed in more ways than one.
A TASTE OF HOME was first published in the SILVER BELLS COLLECTION from TIMELESS ROMANCE ANTHOLOGIES.
My review: Re-reading this book was like talking to a long lost friend! I enjoyed reading every bit of it!
It's short, but the story is so sweet and poingant. I love the care that Will takes for Claire, for the way he comes home with her when he learns she'd be traveling alone otherwise, even though he'd already decided to stay. For the things he goes out of his way to do for her without her even asking.
Claire is cute too. I love the innocent way that she looks forward to Christmas. Dreaming of her family and the traditions they share. Wanting just one taste of her mom's special toffee.
I had an enjoyable afternoon reading this cute story with the snow piling up outside my window! It's a perfect Christmas story.
I was sent an e-copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.
