A Perfect Holiday Fling by Farrah Rochon - My Thoughts

A Perfect Holiday Fling (Moments in Maplesville) - Farrah Rochon

Farrah Rochon is an author I see mentioned many times in my Twitter feed by the romance authors I follow, so I figured it was about time I checked her out.  

 

A Perfect Holiday Fling is the first of the Moments in Maplesville novellas which seem to all circle around holidays, and I found it quite enjoyable and perfect for the Christmas season.  

 

I liked the characters, but as always, I bemoan the fact that there just isn't enough time in a novella to really get to know them, but what we do get is pretty good.  I enjoyed the instant chemistry between the two MCs as well as the fact that Stefan's young 5 year old nephew wasn't perfectly precocious as so many kids in romances tend to be.  

 

My one problem with this book was that the author likes her descriptors a little too much for my taste.  Adjectives abound all over the place.  Now I'm all for giving the reader a picture, God knows, but I often felt as if I was being inundated with colours and textures and brand names and all kinds of other stuff.  

 

But I did like the book.  :)  Perfect read for the holiday season.

 

And for those that search them out, this is a book written by a WOC and about POC.
