Book Review: The Angel of Forest Hill, by Cindy Woodsmall


When I learned that Cindy had a new Christmas novella out (I’ve read some of her other novellas in the past), I was excited to read The Angel of Forest Hill. I loved it, and my only disappointment with it was that it wasn’t longer. I have a love/hate relationship with novellas. I love that I can finish a whole story in a couple of hours, but I hate the necessary leaps in time and super-condensed plots. This novella in particular jumps over long periods of time with only a brief synopsis of what happened during the skipped years. But it’s a forgivable annoyance.

The main character’s personality was as well-developed as is possible in a novella. The other characters are pretty flat. But if you are looking for a cozy, romantic, short read about an Amish marriage of convenience, then this is your book.

I received The Angel of Forest Hill from Blogging for Books for review purposes. I was not required to write a positive review.
