It is highly unusual for me to give a romance novel like this fiver stars. Let me explain why I made an exception this time. The majority of the romance novels I have been asked to review lately have been plain rubbish, with horrible plots, flat characters, etc. Frankly, many of them are so bad that I haven’t been finishing them.
Cara Colter’s The Wedding Planner’s Christmas Wish brings the romance genre back to where it should be. While there is nothing earth-shattering here, it is a well developed novel. The characters show both depth and growth. The plot line is believable and moves along at a steady pace. It is not repetitive. Let me repeat that for the authors at the back repeating the same information over and over. This book isn’t adding words for filler to meet a word count. The story is heart-warming and sweet. There is nothing wrong with writing romance novels, but if you are going to do so, they should still exhibit good writing, which Colter does.
