    3. I remember reading Ellie Darkins first release, Frozen Heart, Melting Kiss more than two years ago. It was a lovely story but I remember commenting that it was a little uneven.

It's beautifully written, the characters are intriguing and engaging and the story itself, very sweet.Amber is a Dear Abby writer, her column gives advice to to the lovelorn and she was very good at it until a couple of years ago when her ex took her for a ride ta [...]

    6. This was recommended to me based on my love for cheesy hallmark Christmas movies. I was excited for a fluff, chick flick holiday read however this was just alright and doesn't even mention Christmas until the epilogue. Not exactly what I had in mind.

    7. Book was in a holiday HQ Romance bundle. It really isn't a Christmas book, only peripherally.Couldn't warm up to the whiny, bitter heroine. Kudos for having a paralyzed hero.

    8. An amazing holiday in the Italy was the only positive thing Amber was looking forward to after the disaster of a dating show appearance for a charity. And she didn't like Mauro, her date for the holiday because she found him all too attractive, too much of a playboy, to be comfortable around him. As soon as Mauro sees Amber he realizes that no matter how attractive she is there's no way he could have a fling with her during the week in Italy because she isn't the type for a fling, and that's all [...]

    10. For me, this was an interesting read because the hero uses a wheelchair. He had a life-changing accident. I, also, had a life-changing accident. Fortunately, I was only in a wheelchair for about 6 months but still use one when needed. The author touched on how a person changes in these accidents in one of the hero's moments of opening up to the heroine that pretty much was spot on. Life goes on and it is up to you to make it a life you enjoy, no matter what must be overcome. I've had that moment [...]

    12. What a lovely story! We meet Amber Harris, a prickly journalist and totally not on board with being part of celebrity dating show Holi-Date, which is a bit like Blind Date (yes I am old enough to remember that show!) but a charity version for the Christmas holidays.

    14. There is so much heart and emotion in this heartwarming tale by Ellie Darkins. The story is engaging and believable and the characters are instantly likable. I found the hero's charm to be sweet and I instantly fell in love with him. The heroine on the other hand had so much going on. Her past wasn't easy but having her move on eventually was the icing on the cake. Overall, fast paced, genuinely heartwarming and a special holiday treat. Highly Recommended4.5 Stars

    15. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which had a super sweet ending. I love a slow burning romance which keeps you shouting at the pages for them to get it together! The chemistry between the characters was described so well it fizzes from the pages, and I really rooted for them to get together. Beautiful surroundings and a TV show make this plot very enjoyable.
