3 stars – I liked it

Kate Drake is a bestselling novelist and is gifted with the ability to use her voice to bring peace. Returning to Sea Haven for Christmas she decides to stay and open a bookstore in a historic mill. Matthew Granite offers his services to restore the house but doesn’t expect to be battling an evil that was unleashed during an earthquake. 

While I enjoyed this book it wasn’t as good as the first one for me. Kate and Matthew’s relationship was very abrupt to me. They went from meeting each other for the first time in years to kissing to having a full relationship. I don’t usually mind fast relationships but for this one didn’t feel like a smooth transition. That said, I still liked Matthew and Kate, especially Kate since she was a bookworm. I just wish that their relationship had been more developed.

“My world is books. It always has been. I love words. I love living in my imagination…My imagination provides a wonderful adventure without the risk or the discomfort.”

I thought the fog creature they were fighting was very interesting. It was a unique villain that had a unique story. I enjoyed watching Matthew learn about the power of the sisters and accept it. I do wish we had learned more about Kate and her writing career. Or seen more development with her bookstore but maybe the other books in the series will touch on that. While I did enjoy this story, it needed a little more development for me to really love it. But if you are looking for a quick and unique holiday romance, pick this book up.
