Holiday Terminal is a Christmas-themed romance that sees two ex-lovers get a second chance of happiness. As a huge fan of the authors already, I was super excited to get started on this. I was also hoping it would get me into the Christmas spirit and I can safely say that it has!
Penelope Barnes and Artemis Warren could not be more different. A small-town girl and a city boy, they were thrust together during a hot summer neither of them would ever forget. We got to learn about their past through short flashbacks and, while there wasn’t many of them, it was the perfect amount for us to understand just how deeply they had cared about each other. Learning about the Warren family was fun, but it was the love and support Penelope’s parents have showed her that I enjoyed so much. The Warren family are not the kind you want to be part of, so I was screaming at Artemis to finally get the guts to step away from a life he hates leading.
Seeing Penelope and Artemis together after so many years apart was fun. There was so much back-and-forth that it keeps you guessing until the very end. There is a huge plot element that I can’t discuss (because it is a big spoiler!) but I absolutely loved how endearing it was. It is the perfect Christmassy read as family is such a strong theme. Another thing I loved was the wintery setting, especially all the snow! Being stuck in a desolate airport terminal on Christmas Day sounds awful, but this book made me want it to happen to me!
I absolutely loved this and will definitely be recommending it. It is the perfect short read to get you in the Christmas spirit and its left me hungry for more festive reads!
