Robert Valle’s charming Christmas read, Miss Brown's Christmas, involves a beautiful romance with a mysterious twist. While working at the New York Public Library, Emily meets Tim, a shy man and like Emily, a newcomer to the city. After a painful breakup, Emily left everything behind to start anew. Though she could travel back home for Christmas, distressing memories kept her away from Pennsylvania. She still remembered and missed her hometown’s magical Christmas seasons. Tim had come to New York after accepting a great job offer. Since meeting Emily at the library, he had been intrigued by her but had been too shy to learn more about her. This Christmas, both had planned to celebrate the season alone but an unexpected invite changes their plans and grants them a wonderful miracle.
A story of hope, surprises, and new beginnings, Miss Brown's Christmas is a heart-warming and uplifting holiday story that celebrates the meaning of the Christmas season. I loved the beautiful images included in the book and its lovely characters. Together with the atmospheric descriptions of New York scenes during Christmas, they create a magical backdrop for the story. I also loved the kind Mr. Niels and enjoyed the story’s optimistic ending. The tale explores other important themes such as reconciliation, love, and forgiveness which are especially relevant to the holiday season. A wonderful read that beautifully captures the spirit of Christmas, Robert Valle has provided a splendid holiday-themed romance that readers will love.
