Tears, there were tears. Even though this was a short story, it was great. Everything about it was so gritty and real. The author did an awesome job portraying a couple not over each other. I wasn't expecting much from this going in and I loved it. The characters blended and the life lessons were there. Sigh, Sawyer :) Overall, if you're looking for a great little Christmas story, Christmas Catch is just what you need. It gets five glittery stars for putting so much emotion into a wonderful little package.

I had this novella on my Kindle for almost a year. I almost read it a few times, but figured it was best left to be read closer to the holiday season. I think, now having finished it, that it was a good decision. Even as a person who doesn’t celebrate the holidays much, it had a lighthearted, good-time cheer to it that I needed with winter settling on around me. Like other Cameron books I’ve read, there’s a great sense of place in Christmas Catch. As usual I felt connected with the setting of this small town in Maine. I also felt a good connection with Ivy, the main character, with her attitude toward her hometown; the good and the bad. I feel that this added to my uncertainty of the story’s outcome, as well. For a story without too much depth, this was a welcomed uncertainty. Christmas Catch was just what I needed to read this time of year. Even if I didn’t feel it’s in the same league as Cameron’s novels that I’ve read so far, it’s still a great read since ultimately I base a book on itself. If the author writes more about Ivy and Sawyer, I’ll be sure to read it.

"Places are like time capsules, I think. Right now I'm transported to two years ago when Sawyer and I used to sit here under this blanket and watch the ocean and talk. Or sometimes we wouldn't. He's the only person I've ever met that I can be completely silent with and it's not awkward." Ivy Emerson is a small-town girl who has spent the last couple years in New York City after escaping her small-town California upbringing. Now she finds herself back in her hometown after being guilted into coming home for the holidays by her mother. To make matters worse, she's run into her first love, Sawyer McCallister, the only person she is sad to have left behind. He's back in town after the death of his father. Suddenly, being home for the holidays isn't looking like such a bad option.   "Sawyer stares down at me and something shifts and then his lips are on my lips, like two magnets being drawn together. Can't stop it, can't fight it. Let it happen." It's obvious from the minute they set eyes on each other again that their feelings for each other are still incredibly strong. The chemistry and sexual tension between them leaps from the pages. I adored both of these characters. I connected with Ivy immediately, but was able to see Sawyer's side of the story too. They were so obviously right for each other. I wanted them to stop fighting it and give in. The novella was incredibly well-written and I found myself simultaneously wanting to reach the end to see what happened and never wanting it to end. As much as I loved this as a novella, I would have loved it more as a full-length novel. There was just something about these characters.  "Not much has changed. The more time I spend with him, the more I realize that. They say time heals, but time doesn't make you forget." This was a beautiful and heartwarming novella about true love and second chances. I found myself completely sucked into Ivy and Sawyer's story. This story made me really emotional. I guess it hit a little close to home. I loved the way their families rallied around them, realizing they belong together and trying to gently nudge them towards each other. There was a lot of emotion and passion in these 72 pages. I definitely had a case of the warm fuzzies when I finished it.  I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
