So, here’s what I thought of The Kissing Season!
There is one person that we all of us know like Hannah – a fun, sweet girl whose decision making often leaves you scratching your head. Getting married on a whim may have seemed like the right idea, however Hannah’s pregnancy changes everything. Hubby legs it, the marriage is annulled and she has to return home to her family.
At first, her reluctance to tell her family about the pregnancy was something I didn’t quite get, but as I read on, I began to understand her choice – for so long, she’s been seen by her family as flighty and prone to irresponsibililty, she just wants that chance to show them she can be different before dropping the baby bombshell. Good on you, Hannah!
I must say it was a very interesting first meeting between Hannah and her delicious hero, Matteo. Certainly made Hannah’s vow to stay away from men a little difficult (read it and you will know what I mean – it would for me). I’ve seen a few people express their reservations about this scene, but it does fit both characters well and once you read the story, it should be clear how so.
With this being a novella-length story, the romance of course develops fairly quickly, and it really does work quite well. The chemistry between Hannah and Matteo is fantastic, and not just as lovers. The friendship that develops between them makes their move towards a happy ending all that more believable. I loved that even despite his own misgivings about commitment, Matteo stood by Hannah when she needed someone at her side.
Being Australian, it’s always lovely to see our version of Christmas come across the way it does in The Kissing Season. There’s nothing quite like singing songs about snow and reindeer when it is 30-plus outside and your shoes are in danger of melting into the footpath. Rachael has managed to capture the spirit and difference of an Aussie Christmas perfectly.
I only wish that it had been longer!
The story of Hannah and Matteo was such a beautiful read! How Hannah is dealing with life challenges while trying to prove to her family that she is a responsible adult and at the same time just trying to have some fun and finding her way.
Matteo rushes Hannah off her feet in the family store of Elliott's, being so charming and sweet and very obviously flirty and the character interactions get more and more intense!
The characters and story were brilliantly written, with angst and laughter thrown together which made you wanting the novella not to finish!
Five Star Read!
