Review: Christmas Bliss

January 3, 2014

Christmas Bliss

Weezie’s wedding is approaching and she’s worried about her soon-to-be husband.  He’s in New York acting as a guest chef and he’s not communicating with her much.  Seeing a picture of him in the paper with the gorgeous owner of the restaurant doesn’t help matters much.  She decides to surprise him by flying up to see him.

Weezie’s best friend, Bebe, is 8 months pregnant with her first baby when she learns that her divorce has never been finalized.  If she doesn’t act fast, he will be the legal father of her unborn child.  She hopes she can get things straightened out before Harry, the baby’s father, finds out.  The clock is ticking, though, so she doesn’t have much time.

I wanted something light and fun to read during the days leading up to Christmas and that’s exactly what I got with Christmas Bliss by Mary Kay Andrews.   Bebe and Weezie are recurring characters for Andrews, but this is the first book I’ve read with them.  That didn’t bother me at all – I never felt lost while I was reading this book.

The story alternates between Weezie and Bebe and their voices are similar but chapter headings identify the narrator so it was easy to tell who was speaking.  The story line is pretty predictable and things are tied up neatly in the end but that’s what I expect from a book like this.  It’s just what I needed since I read it during such a busy period.

I enjoyed Christmas Bliss but I wouldn’t say that I loved it.  It’s light and breezy and features endearing characters and it was perfect for the busy holiday period.  It’s set close to Christmas but it’s not overly Christmasy, so I think readers can enjoy it anytime of the year.

I won this book from Booking Mama.  I am an Indiebound Affliate.

    It sounds like Bebe has gotten herself in a pickle! I haven’t read this author before, but I’m always up for light hearted girly read. Lovely review honey!

    I almost picked this one up right before Christmas, but didn’t. I wish I had. I’ve read one featuring these characters before and enjoyed it.

    Christmas Bliss sounds like a fun, light read.

    I’ve read the previous books and fell in love with these characters so this was such a fun read for me. I finished it early this week.

    I enjoyed this one but took it for what it was — a light holiday-themed story.

    Sometimes you just need a light and breezy read. This one sounds like it fit that bill.

    I didn’t get to this book this year, but I have it for next year! I’ve been in the mood for light and breezy and I’m glad this fits the bill. Plus the cover is adorable!
