I'm feeling a little bit likr the Grinch right now, because most of the Christmas stories I've read so far didn't do a lot for me.
This one wasn't exactly an exception. Ben has this confused & lost puppy feeling to him, that made him kind of adorable, but also a tiny little bit annoying. Cal on the other hand is an easy-going good guy who comes literally from the back of the woods. Add a cozy little cabin and a lot of snow, and vòila! Here comes Cabin Nights. It's a cute story, extra sweet, with enough steam and an unusual epilogue.
I liked it, I really did. It was easy, it was heart-warming in a way, and it had all the ingredients a Christmas Story needs. And yet... I don't know. I wasn't really touched, it didn't grab me or pulled me in all the way. I definitely didn't start humming Christmas carols while reading. It was a good book, just didn't rock my world.
