What I loved about this book is the romance and how Ms. Alers takes us on the journey as Viola and Dom find love. It was refreshing to see them go through the stages beginning with friendship first. The storyline moves so seamlessly that I felt as if I were staying at the chateau and touring the estate. I loved how the book has a small town feel to it which I enjoyed very much. There is an element of surprise that I wasn’t expecting which had me all in my emotions. The chemistry between Viola and Dom is smoldering hot. I loved how Dom caters to Viola and supports her in her decision to help her siblings with the renovations and to run the kitchen. It was also good to see Sonja and Taylor reappear.
Overall, I enjoyed reading CHRISTMAS AT THE CHATEAU. It is such a feel-good story about love at Christmas. I cannot wait to see where Ms. Alers takes this series next. Make sure to grab a copy of this amazing book.
