3.5 stars. Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas was a sweet start to the Friday Harbor series, although it could have been better with a bit more development of several plot points and of the characters, and the ending was somewhat rushed. Still, I could see the potential for the series, which I will continue, and it was a nice holiday read. ( )

[Saturday, December 10, 2011] I bought this book yesterday, I postponed buying it for so long. I love Lisa's historical romances novels, but I struggled with Sugar Daddy [still am]. This is not the case here. I opened the book less than an hour ago and now I'm in chapter 3, I guess I will finish the book today. It's adorable and short. I love Lisa's style in writing. I loved Maggie and Mark's story... I can't wait to see Sam and Alex's stories as well!

[Sunday, ‎January ‎06, ‎2013] OMG!! I could actually cry! What have they done to the book! I just finished watching the movie based on this book and it made me very very very mad!! They destroyed it! Lisa Kleypas should sue! ( )

This was a Christmas gift from my mom. As I started reading it I realized it was familiar...yup...you guessed it...there is a Hallmark movie that I've watched a couple times. The movie, of course, is a little different but they are both good in their own way. ( )
