#Review: Christmas Catch, by @chel_c_cam

Christmas CatchTitle: Christmas Catch
Author: Chelsea M. Cameron
Rating: 4/5 stars

“Two years ago, when Ivy Emerson bailed from the tiny fishing village she’d grown up in to go to Columbia, Sawyer McCallister was the only thing she was sad to leave behind, and she still didn’t look back. But when her mother guilts her into coming home for Christmas, she crashes headfirst into Sawyer, who’s also returned after being away. Now that they’ve both been dragged back to Saltwater, Maine, they might just realize it’s where they belong. Together. (description from Goodreads)

I had this novella on my Kindle for almost a year. I almost read it a few times, but figured it was best left to be read closer to the holiday season. I think, now having finished it, that it was a good decision. Even as a person who doesn’t celebrate the holidays much, it had a lighthearted, good-time cheer to it that I needed with winter settling on around me.

Like other Cameron books I’ve read, there’s a great sense of place in Christmas Catch. As usual I felt connected with the setting of this small town in Maine. I also felt a good connection with Ivy, the main character, with her attitude toward her hometown; the good and the bad. I feel that this added to my uncertainty of the story’s outcome, as well. For a story without too much depth, this was a welcomed uncertainty.

Christmas Catch was just what I needed to read this time of year. Even if I didn’t feel it’s in the same league as Cameron’s novels that I’ve read so far, it’s still a great read since ultimately I base a book on itself. If the author writes more about Ivy and Sawyer, I’ll be sure to read it.
