#Review Christmas Light by Jolyse Barnett

Title: Christmas Light
Author: Jolyse Barnett
Rating: 3 stars

This was my first time reading Jolyse Barnett. I'd originally started reading this story before Christmas, but life got in the way and I only recently got back to reading it. 

The story had a strong opening. I loved how the author introduced the couple. These two hadn't seen each other for ten years and to say Ben had grown up was an understatement. Jade didn't recognize him at first, which brought a wonderful awkwardness to their first encounter in the story. 

There were moments in the book that had me melting inside as these two reconnected after all the time that had passed, but there were other times when I was rolling my eyes at their lack of communication. If they'd been strangers, then I could have understood but they were supposed to be best friends. Considering what drove a wedge between them years ago boiled down to her not sharing her struggles with him, it felt as if she hadn't grown up and was still as insecure as she was as a teenager. 

Despite the communication issues, I did like this book. It was a nice holiday read full of friends, family, and community. 

I would recommend this book to anyone who's looking for a quick holiday read about best friends who realize they are made for each other.
