My Review:
If you are looking for a super-short little read to get you in the mood for the holidays, this was a fun one. It only took about 45 minutes to read, as the entire book takes place during a single night, Christmas Eve.

There were places that I would have liked it to have had a bit *more* to the story, but it worked. I liked both Carsten's and Josiane's characters. They had a fun rapport which started when they were both surprisingly trapped in the elevator on Christmas Eve and ended with a family dinner at Josiane's house. I liked the surprise about who Carsten really was and how it completely threw Josiane off. I liked the way that the book ended and really liked Carston's attitude towards their sudden sweet and romantic.

You can't beat the $.99 price-tag. It was worth every one of those 99 pennies. On a day that started off pretty unpleasantly, this novella provided a welcome and fun diversion.
