REVIEW: 'Twas The Nate Before Christmas by Sophie Sloane
Author: Sophie Sloane
Publisher: Sophie Sloane
Publication Date: December, 2014
Genre: Chick Lit
Buy The Book: Amazon
Description: Daisy, a young, American woman, has moved to Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, England. Amidst the hustle and bustle of the town centre at Christmastime, she rather clumsily falls to the ground. She looks up to see the most handsome face she had ever seen. Nate. It was love at first fall.
He is a gardener at Friar Park, but things don’t seem to add up, as he is constantly jumping into black sports cars, using code names, and hiding her from his friends. At other times, he is the perfect gentleman; wining and dining her at fancy restaurants, zipping around on their scooters, and wooing her with his British wit and banter.
Will he tell her the truth, or will she end up alone at Christmas?
My Thoughts: Cute little Christmas novelette about Daisy, a young American woman living in England meeting the man of her dreams when she falls, literally, at his feet. Nate isn’t all he claims or appears to be. As far as Daisy knows, Nate is a gardener at George Harrison’s estate, but every time Daisy sees him, he’s getting into or out of fancy sports cars and keeping company with people who appear to be celebrities. Daisy is convinced his “Uncle Paul” is THE Paul McCartney, but maybe her eyes are playing tricks on her…or are they? As Daisy gets to know Nate better, the more questions about Nate’s identity and intentions come to light.
Daisy and Nate were likable characters that were easy to relate to. The twist on Nate’s true identity was an interesting and charming revelation and made the story more fanciful. This story is a quick read that will be a great addition to any reader’s Christmas reading list.
