CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
First and foremost, for a short novella, Author Caroline Johnson packed Christmas Mystery Of The Heart with mystery, suspense, and romance. Keeping in mind the length of the book, I found the story-line solid and interesting. Novella’s, aka short novel, have to move and develop quickly. Consequently, unlike their parent, the novel, novella must pack a lot into a small space; without providing the depth and detail found in novels.
Also, Author Caroline Johnson skillfully crafted and developed her characters and paced the story-line correctly for the length of the novella. I found the premise of the story intriguing and personalities of the children heartwarming. I love a good clean romance and this story has these elements. Therefore, if you read to escape every day reality to find a world of Dukes, villains, mystery, and romance, this short book will be your cup of tea.
Finally, in concluding my mystery romance review of Christmas Mystery Of The Heart, I found this book a sweet, clean, light, heartwarming read. Great for a relaxing respite from the everyday, I would recommend this book to anyone above the age of 14+.
