I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. It sounds like a perfect romance, appropriately sweet for Christmastime.:-)

    1. Yes, it is. Thanks, Priscilla. Have a lovely week.

  2. Thank you Olga.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. I hope to catch up on more of the author’s novels in the future. Stay well.

  3. Not something that appeals to me, but I can imagine a TV series adapted from it being very popular in the UK. Good luck to Mimi with the book.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. No, I didn’t think this would be your kind of book, although I am sure you’d enjoy the setting. Take care and stay safe. ♥

  4. Hi Olga, I think this sounds like a lovely read. I also like Victorian Christmas depictions.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I was interested in reading one of Matthews’s stories, and the setting and the story appealed as well. I think you’d enjoy this one as well. Enjoy the rest of the week.

  5. Hi Olga. You know I’m not a fan of holidays, but you have intrigued me despite that. Thanks for your detailed review about the subplot and secondary characters. I agree that would make the story more appealing to me too. I love the way the text is done on the cover. (I must figure that out!)
    Have a wonderful week. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I’m not a fan of Christmas in particular, but I don’t mind the stories set in it so much. I am curious to read more of the author’s work as well. I love the cover but your comment made me look at the title and the text on it. It is beautiful and I’m sure you’ll figure out how it’s done. You have a knack for these things. Have a lovely weekend. Big hugs.

    Very intriguing Olga. I’m going to head over and check out more. I enjoy novellas, and that time period. Hugs xx

    1. Thanks, Debby. Novellas are a great way of taking a break between longer reads, and they can be very handy when we have a tight timetable but still fancy a change and something short and satisfying to read. I think you’d enjoy this one. Take care and have a great weekend.

        I agree with all you said about reading novellas. A perfect length story for in-between longer reads. 🙂 Thanks Olga. Happy weekend to you too! <3

  7. Another great review, Olga. This sounds like a delightful romance, and I enjoy novellas these days. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. It is a lovely novella. I usually prefer full-length novels, but some novellas are so beautifully written and fit the form so perfectly that they are irresistible. I hope you are feeling better and can enjoy the rest of the week.
