How can you not like a guy who loves take-out Chinese food? :D I agree with you that Lydia is a layered, realistic character, where the author could have just made her a stereotypical little girl. The only thing I would have liked to see was a more fleshed out dating backstory for Allison, the main character. There was no hint of any past romantic relationships before Luke popped up in her life. Maybe I missed something, but it felt weird that it was never mentioned if she had a boyfriend or boyfriends at some point in her life. Her backstory just felt a little sparse other than her running her parents' bookstore.

Very interesting point, Owlie! I guess I automatically assumed that, for the purpose of this tale, Luke is Allie's backstory, as a very sparse dating history with only one key highlight or two is nothing foreign to me--but that would be a discussion for an entirely different forum. :oops: :lol2: I do wonder how much these characters may or may not show up later in the series.

So glad you read the book! This serves as a much-needed kick in the pants for me to get back on the ball with my own reading, lest my TBR list should report me to the FBI as a missing person.

Yes--now that I've been pretty lately introduced to holiday reading, and Christmas is the holiday of ALL holidays to me, I may find myself in the company of Christmas books at more points during the year. :D
