Also today I’m delighted to be on the blog tour for You Never See Rainbows at Christmas by the lovely Elaine Spires. This is a wonderful feel good Christmas romance that I devoured in a few hours…..

about you never see rainbows at christmas

Like a rhinestone Miss Havisham Eloise plans to spend Christmas alone, lying on the settee, crying her eyes out and listening to Dolly Parton’s Greatest Hits.  But a fall in the sleet two nights before Christmas lands her at the feet of rough sleeper Adam who is fighting his own demons.  Limping, cut and bruised, she has no alternative but to accept his offer of help. And instead of rejection and solitude there’s friendship and company and the festive season suddenly seems brighter.  Eloise’s never seen a rainbow at Christmas… Until now.

my thoughts

I adored this wonderful, short feel good read that had me grinning at the end!

Eloise is planning on spending Christmas alone, wallowing in self-pity.  She’s cancelled her family and she’s not celebrating.  But when she nips out one evening more more milk in her PJs she ends up falling over and being rescued by the homeless man outside; the same homeless man she’d just ignored.  But he goes above and beyond, and a little kindness changes everything………

Honestly, this is just what you need at Christmas.  This had me going through so many emotions.  Both Eloise and Adam have their own heartbreaking stories, and find something in each other that they need at that moment.  Learning what they have both been through makes you want to hug them, and seeing where things go and what happens will shock you at times, but mainly put a big smile on your face.

There are plenty of parts to this story that will make you stop and think; especially when it comes to Adam.  Things aren’t always what they seem and we should all remember this.

This is only a short story so you can pick this up and read it in a few hours, or spend your time enjoying it.  The writing style is enjoyable and ‘real’, and will make you want to see where things go for this lovely pair.

So, if you’re looking for a short, wonderful, contemporary romance that will make you think, but make you feel warm and glowy, then you should check this out.  Highly recommended by me.
