Holiday Romance by Catherine Walsh ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

Ten years ago, Molly and Andrew happened to sit next to each other on their Christmas flight home to Ireland. What started as a coincidence turns into a regular, planned occurrence. Though they occasionally cross paths during the year, the Christmas flight home is the time they spend together. Andrew is all about Christmas and family and Molly is ambivalent about the holiday and visits her family out of obligation. The flight is the highlight for Molly because she gets to spend the 7+ hours with Andrew. They catch up, discuss who they are dating or broken up with, and just enjoy being together.

Are you starting to compile your list of holiday reads? I don't read a lot of romance novels, but I'm a sucker for a Christmas time romance. 

The plot isn't really unique. I think I read a Christmas romance last year that was similar. Familiar plots are often why holiday stories are fun. The holidays can be so hectic and exhausting that it is nice to take a break with something that isn't taxing. 

I liked the characters of Molly and Andrew. I could identify with Molly and I could fall in love with Andrew if he was real. 

I liked that we got large chunks of the present day with just short flashbacks to earlier flights. Towards the end, I didn't care for the flashbacks as much as I just wanted to see them get together already.

If you are looking for a story that is as comfortable as your favorite pair of fuzzy pajamas, then you will want to put Holiday Romance on your holiday reading list.
