Review + Contest Info: A Light In The Window by Julie Lessman!


A Light in the Window: An Irish Christmas Love Story 
by Julie Lessman
Find on: AmazonGoodreads

About the book:

One Woman. Two Men. 
One stirs her pulse and the other her faith. 
But who will win her heart? 

Marceline Murphy is a gentle beauty with a well-founded aversion to rogues. But when two of Boston's most notorious pursue her, attraction, dreams and faith only muddle her mind. Can the light in the window illuminate the path of true love?

My thoughts:


A Light in the Window was a great read! I loved getting to read Marcy's story and even though I knew who she ended up with (having read the Daughters of Boston series and A Love Surrendered), it was still a thrilling ride!

I really liked how A Light in the Window didn't seem as "passionate" as other Julie Lessman books I've read, I'm not a huge fan of a lot of kissing/passion in books and I'm glad there wasn't that much of it in this book. :)

It was kind of weird reading A Light In The Window, at times, because I knew what a great guy someone was and I just couldn't stand how Marcy was acting towards him... :|

A Light in the Window was well written and I really enjoyed reading it! While I would have liked a little more details about things that had happened towards the end of the book, it was still a great ending that brought a smile to my face. :)

If you enjoy historical romances, then I think you will enjoy A Light in the Window! You don't need to have read the "Daughters of Boston" or "Winds of Change" series first.

  1. Hey, MEL, thank you SO much for taking the time to be part of my blog tour, especially with all the books on your plate. I am glad you enjoyed ALITW, and you are absolutely correct -- this book is the least "passionate" of all my books, and would you believe you are the first to point that out, which doesn't surprise me too much ... ;)

    I am giving you six points in my contest, so GOOD LUCK, my friend, and thanks again!

    Hugs,
    Julie
