🎄📚 BOOK REVIEW 📚🎄
Title: Last Christmas in Paris
Author: Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb
Publisher: William & Morrow Books
Genre: Historical Fiction
For me it was this book. I had no intentions of doing so, but it’s one of those books you keep telling yourself “let me just read a little bit more and I’ll stop...just a little bit more…a little bit more…well shoot I only have 100 pages left, I might as well finish.” This book is nearly 100% told in letter format and I think that makes the book really flow. It’s a fast read that keeps you engaged and wanting to know more about these characters. Give me more books in letter format!
Our story begins with Thomas Harding traveling to Paris with a packet of cherished letters. These letters tell a tale of love, loss, friendship, family during a devastating time of war. As Tom reads the letters one by one, he is transported back to 1914 when Evie Elliot waves goodbye to him and her brother Will.
But you see, they are to believe the war will be over by Christmas and make plans to reunite and celebrate in Paris. But it is not to be. As month’s slip into years Tom and Evie become bound together by letters and telegrams.
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Oh my heart! This is a love story about soul mates. The one and only your heart belongs too. I haven’t read too many WWI stories but the sacrifices and dedication was real. Despite having Christmas in the title this book doesn’t have to be read at Christmastime. I do feel like it’s a winter book to read on a cold day. It’s going on my favorites and rereads shelf, for sure!
