Maids Under the Mistletoe #1
Reviewed by Helen
I love Christmas stories and I love stories that are a magical reunion between two people who loved one another when they were young and then life and tragedy get in the way and part them but true love and life has a way of bringing them back together in such a beautiful way.
Emma Carmichael had everything growing up a loving family part of the privileged she mixed in the highest circles she was a real lady and fell in love with her best friend’s brother and Earl no less Jack, but they were both young and eloped but before they had a chance to let anyone know tragedy strikes and Emma is left to make repatriation for her father’s mistakes. Her life changes dramatically she takes on a job as a waitress and never goes back to Jack, that is until she meets him at a party she is working at six years later that spark is still there she has never forgotten him.
Jack Westwood is from the upper class and appearances mean everything to his strict family but he wants to expand his wings and move to America and start his own business. When he falls very deeply for his sister’s friend Emma she encourages him to follow his dreams and they marry with plans to go together but life doesn’t turn out that way and Jack gets on with his life in The States but never forgets his wife.
This story has everything that a true romantic wants in a fabulous story it is a reunion story a bit of a Cinderella story with a hero who is so loving and caring and strong and Emma is just an amazingly strong heroine one who has the back bone to stand up to the people she thought were her friends. I highly recommend this fast paced romance it ticks all of the boxes for a must read.
5/5 stars for a fabulous story
