Despite the misleading title (Christmas really has nothing to do with the story), Stella Bagwell has created a solid read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Raine has always wanted to find her father. So when she sees an old photo of a woman she believes is her mother, she contacts Neil, a lawyer, who is searching for the missing woman. Raine's mother lost her memory when Raine was a baby and doesn't want Raine to dig in the past. So while investigating her identity, Neil poses as Raine's fiancee'. But when it comes time to end the charade, will they be able to say goodbye?
To me, the romance seemed to be a second thought to solving the mystery of Raine's mother. The romance was there, but rather underdeveloped. I also had a little problem with the age difference between the characters (thank goodness it wasn't brought up more than once or twice)... with Neil being about 15 years older than Raine. But other than these two issues, I enjoyed this quick read.
