#DashingDecember
blurb

Interesting story and characters. Perhaps a little long but mostly fast paced. Fulfills Washington DC for my #52mysteries reading project. First in a series, but it‘s a little cynical and depressing for me to continue. I can read about murder and mayhem in other cities, but for my own city I just need to turn on the local news.

Anyway, this was one of the books I planned to finish for #dashingdecember but better late than never!

Andrew65 Brilliant, and look at all that progress 👏👏👏 5mo

Christmas at the Cat Caf | Jessica Redland
post image
Pickpick

Having discovered Jessica Redland last Christmas and enjoyed her books since, I was keen to jump into this book about Tabby setting up a Cat Cafe, which seems a novel concept. Unfortunately just before opening her partner deserts her and if that isn‘t enough she also is suffering from the debilitating condition of fibromyalgia. There also seem to be people around her that want to stop the cafe opening.

Andrew65 I loved this book as much as her previous books and do enjoy the writing style of her books, and the romance style of them. I do feel it‘s good that people write about people suffering with medical conditions, and I learned a lot about fibromyalgia in this book which will make me understand it better, but I can see how this might put some people off who read books for escapism. 6mo
Andrew65 However I have to say I felt this was written very well into the book, and only added to the reading experience and the story for me.

I felt the story was very well written, and in particular the slow burn of the developing relationship in Tabby‘s life, and found myself rooting for them. I loved the main characters and was very glad to spend some of the Christmas season with them.

Andrew65 I‘m not particularly a cat person, but despite that I did love the story and the unique cat part of it, although I‘m sure I wouldn‘t spend the extra money to go to a cat cafe. Just a word of warning if anyone is a cat lover there is one part of the story that could be upsetting. However, even that I feel was very well written in the story.

Andrew65 Overall if you enjoy these romance style of books I would definitely recommend this book, and gave it five stars. There isn‘t one book by Jessica Redland that I haven‘t enjoyed very much, and look forward to reading more books by her.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

I loved these tales from the 10th Doctor. My favorite was The Christmas Blessing about a group or blessing of space narwhals that help clean space junk out of our atmosphere 💙

Mistlefoe: A Mead Realm Tale | Kimberly Lemming

While I dislike insta-love, there wasn‘t a fated mates plot at least. Also, I wish there was more on the Mistlefoe game! And the book just…ended. I want more! At least this explains where Alexis came from.

While fun yes, the dubcon in this one was a biiiiit too dubious. Lemming tried to make it not creepy but still. Also, didn‘t expect my introduction to the omegaverse to be this book 😅🥲

This was pure fluff and exactly what I needed to get me out of a mini slump. Back in Christmas Falls, the B&B owner falls for an unexpected guest

I really liked the concept of these queer fairy tale retellings, I think I just didn't care for some of the stories that were chosen to retell. There were two stories that I really loved but the rest left me feeling meh. Beautiful art though, I loved the colored pencil designs. I don't know if the author is planning another collection like this in future but I would give it a go if they do
