Kissed by Christmas…

Policeman Brian Glenn wants a promotion. Studying for a degree in criminology is the first step. When a member of Ballybeg’s most notorious family struts into his forensic psychology class, his hopes for a peaceful semester vanish. Sharon MacCarthy is the last woman he should get involved with, however hot and bothered she makes him get under his police uniform. Can he survive the semester without succumbing to her charms?

…Loved by New Year.

Sharon’s had a rough few months. She knows her future job prospects depend on finally finishing her degree. When she’s paired with her secret crush for the semester project, she sees a chance for happiness. Can she persuade Brian that there’s more to her than sequins, high heels, and a rap sheet?

My Review:

What a fantastic Christmas novella. I absolutely loved this trip back to Ballybeg. Keane tells an intimate story full of emotion and laughter. Her polished, inviting style really drew me in and I devoured the story in less than 2 hours. The way that she draws you into this small town is so complete that you feel as if you’re really there.

Keane makes it so easy to picture these characters. Her descriptions bring them to life in a way that you can easily see while her subtle character development really lets you get to know them as individuals. Sharon’s antics are priceless. She definitely made me laugh throughout. Brian’s toned down views are the perfect counterpoint.

This was an absolutely fantastic read. Keane has produced a fast paced, quick read that is still a brilliantly complete story in and of itself. I would definitely recommend picking up a copy.
