Just like the book, I’ll keep this review short and sweet. Two Weeks ‘Til Christmas, which, coincidentally I did read just a couple of weeks before Christmas, was a pleasant surprise. At just over 250 pages, it’s a short read and perfect to stash in your beach bag over the summer holidays.
Claire Thorne heads back to the regional town of Bindallarah to stop her ex-lover’s wedding. Great hook, right? She left behind her hometown thirteen years earlier and broke the heart of her high school sweetheart Scotty a few years later. Now they’ve reconnected and he’s about to tie the knot- to someone else- Claire leaves behind the big smoke to face her past, come to terms with her true feelings for Scotty and find the strength to take risks for a chance at her very own happily-ever-after.
Two Weeks ‘Til Christmas is a light, fun seasonal read with a frustratingly strong protagonist and a soft-hearted hero. I read it in a weekend!
