All I Want For Christmas: Day 17 – Book review: Revenge of a Chalet Girl by Lorraine Wilson
When Amy finds out that her ex is among the guests at the Chalet Repos where she works, she decides that it’s time for revenge. The very person responsible for her depression is here, and he is getting married. With someone else. So it’s time for payback.
Amy seems like a nice person, very emotional, very moral. When her fiance left, she tottaly cracked. After the breaking up and a death in the family, Amy feels depressed. She find herself in a state that cannot dissapear over a night, so years after she still struggles with the consequences. When she finally manages to pick up the broken pieces of herself, her ex appears again, this time with a new bride. Luckily Amy has two of her best friends to look after her and cheer her up. The revenge is actually their idea. The bastard has to pay.
But it seems that Jacob is not a bad guy at all. He made some bad decisions and the timing simply wasn’t right. Seeing Amy after many years, opens up old wounds, but his bride doesn’t deserve this. He made a promise to her, and he’ll keep it. But feeling Amy so close is still such a good feeling…
Overall I liked the book, it is very well written and I liked the writing style. However, I had few issues with the characters, especially Amy, the main character. At first I liked her, then I didn’t, than again she would win my heart. It all felt kind of confusing really. She seems like a nice person but not much of s strong character. It was really hard for me to connect with her and understand her and her actions. Still, it’s a light and short read I’m sure many will enjoy.
My rating: 3/5
