Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The second Cynster Christmas special is also the beginning of the next generation of stories, as Laurens introduces young Cynsters within the context of a lovely, touching romance. Many characters and several plot lines will keep reader attention engaged and—best of all—this is an opportunity to catch up will all your favorite Cynsters. This is an enjoyable, warmhearted holiday story.” RT Book Reviews
“Holiday frivolity fills the air as the far-flung Cynster clan gather for the winter holidays at Scotland’s Casphairn Manor…A severe winter storm, a new baby, and a near tragedy keep the action on track in this story that brings fans up to date on the older Cynsters and provides a fascinating glimpse of the next generation. Verdict: Scents of pine, cinnamon, and yule log smoke (plus some nostalgia and a dash of magic) waft from the pages of this heart-warmer that adds another chapter to this popular, long-running series.” Library Journal
“Matthew Brenher’s voice is simply delightful, and his calm, mellow delivery is engaging.” AudioFile
