“The Christmas Surprise” by Samantha March
Blurb: Juliette Mabry is a happily married stay-at-home wife and mother…until there appears to be trouble brewing in her nearly ten-year marriage. Juliette takes it upon herself to find out if her husband is up to no good, but does she want to know the truth? Everything is revealed on Christmas, and Juliette is in for her biggest Christmas surprise.
My Review: I’m a huge fan of Samantha March’s books, so, of course, I accepted an ARC of “The Christmas Surprise.” This 77-page novella jumps right into the action, where Juliette wonders if her husband is having an affair. I really hoped it wasn’t true, but when she stumbles on incriminating evidence, I found it hard not to wonder if it was true. Thankfully, she has a great friend who supports her, along with Colin, her adorable son, who she would do anything for, to distract her.
I loved how even with the possibility that her family could be falling apart, Juliette focuses on giving to the less fortunate, helping keep one’s memory alive, and trying her best to make her life the best it could, especially during the holiday season.
When the truth comes out on Christmas morning, Juliette is overcome with joy and amazement that her husband could put together something so special for her, my heart melted, loving how her husband put so much effort in something so special.
If you’re looking for a sweet, lighthearted, Christmas novella, which will get you into the holiday spirit, then I would definitely recommend “The Christmas Surprise.”
I give this book 5 stars!
