Blurb: Will Oliver get the gift he’s hoping for this Christmas?
Oliver Walker’s Christmas is shaping up to be a quiet one. That is until hunky neighbour Ed Middleton moves in next door.
Attraction is instant, but Ed is only there temporarily and neither wants to start something with an expiration date.
As the festive season approaches, holiday cheer wraps around them, and giving in to temptation is inevitable. But Ed is still set on moving in the new year—a fresh start, miles away from those he’s closest to.
If Oliver doesn’t want to lose his heart, he’ll have to show Ed that home is wherever he wants it to be, and love is possible no matter what.
No Place Like Home is a heartwarming story of love between neighbours, family and friends, about adorable rescue cats, and remembering that sometimes the very thing you’re looking for is right under your nose.
This was such a sweet, cute story about neighbors who build a friendship and fall in love. I loved how they started off with Ed calling the cops on Oliver for being a suspected burglar. It was so cute and interesting seeing Ed fumble so much around Oliver. I really enjoyed seeing them explore their fledgling relationship and how Oliver was willing to help Ed fix up his late aunt’s bungalow. It was very sweet seeing them dance around their attraction and watching them grow closer.
While I really enjoyed this one, about two-thirds of the way through, there was something that didn’t hold my attention. I’m not sure what but I struggled to keep reading. After a time, the story caught my attention again but there was a time I wasn’t sure I’d continue.
All in all, though, I did ultimately enjoy this one even if I struggled for a little bit. I loved Ed and Oliver as characters and enjoyed their chemistry together and seeing them dance around each other. It was such a sweet, cute story, I definitely recommend reading it if you’re looking for a good Christmas story between neighbors.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
