This is a great read for any time of the year, it had me gripped to the end.
I immediately felt empathy with the main character, Lexi, who is a warm and loyal,amusing, yet self-conscious and self-effacing. She had me on her side from the start!
The first person narrative (narrated by both Lexi and the other main character, Leo)enhances this story, making it feel more personal than many other books of this genre. The other characters too, such as Lexi's best friend and her Uncle, are believable and add layers which enrich the story.
I loved the details in the descriptions of the contrasting settings of Vegas and Canada.
Overall,Elena's first novel is a thoroughly enjoyable read - I can't wait for the next one!
I LOVED this book ... it's the perfect story for the holidays, with all the right ingredients - snow, mountains, skating, log fires and, of course romance! The story drew me in from the very first chapter - I couldn't put it down. Highly recommended as a great gift, or as a Christmas treat for yourself!
