Book Review:

This is my first holiday romance of the season, and it certainly is filled with holiday miracles. It was easy to feel sorry for Henry, the main character, because he had such a ho hum kind of life. He had artistic talent that he refused to develop and spent his time as a guard in an art museum. As time passed, he obsessed over a portrait of a beautiful woman. Finally, at Christmas time, he decided to add his own touches to the painting.

I had an idea where this story might go, but it didn't end the way I thought it would even though Henry does find happiness in a Christmas miracle.

While the story ended well, I wasn't a fan of the ending. I wanted to give Henry a kick and tell him to shape up. The story is well written with some great description, and it's possible that someone else may be kinder to poor Henry than I was. On a scale of 1-5, I'd give it a 4.
