Wrapped Up for Christmas by Katlyn Duncan #Review

Festive reading continues with Katlyn Duncan's Wrapped Up for Christmas.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… but not for Angie Martinelli…

Having lost her boyfriend, job, and apartment all in the space of a week, Angie has no choice but to leave California and return to her family in New England.

 Determined not to let life weigh her down, Angie finds work at the local mall where she worked as a teenager. After an embarrassing run-in with a handsome stranger, Nick, she’s convinced her luck is about to change.

But Nick has secrets of his own…  and as the first flakes of snow begin to fall, Angie can’t help but wonder if she’ll ever find love.

My Thoughts
This festive read really captures the essence of the holiday season - being a good neighbour and being kind to each other. Angie has had a difficult few years but has returned back to her childhood home and appreciates the community she finds there. Family love and looking out for those who are weaker seems to be part of her make-up and she finds real satisfaction from helping others. 

    I enjoyed Nick's story and his relationship with his brother's family. It shows you what sort of person he is. The main characters are all likeable and sympathetic. Angie's friends and family are all an entertaining bunch and I smiled at her family as they were curious as to what was going on in her life. It felt so true to life. It is a relaxing and comforting read which makes you smile- a real page turner..    

In short: Brimful of love and kindness.
