Picture Perfect Christmas~A Review

Picture Perfect Christmas by Charlotte Greene is a really satisfying reunion romance that takes place around the time of year known for reunions and getting together with family and friends. I’ve been having great fun reading new Christmas romances, and this is a good addition to the list.

Photographer Nicole Steele is coming home to visit her mother for the holidays in her hometown of Glenwood, Colorado. She has also taken a job taking photographs for the town’s tourism campaign while she is there. It means she can spend more time with her mother. There is just one problem. She will be working with Quinn Zelinsky, the woman who broke her heart when she was in high school.

While this is definitely a character driven novel, the setting does play a major role in the story because of the photography aspect, and because it is just such a beautiful place, especially this time of year. It is well described by the author and makes the tale more realistic. The characters are well developed, both main and secondary. We get to see the story through the eyes of both Quinn and Nicole, and thankfully, the narrative makes it clear when the reader switches from one to the other. I bonded with Nicole quickly, but I must admit I had some problems with the way Quinn treated Nicole in the story. The author does give us some clues to why Quinn acts this way (it involves something in her childhood), but her actions kept me from connecting with her until later in the story.

I had fun reading this Christmas love story, and wholeheartedly recommend it to readers who love reunion romances.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
