Review- How to Host a Holiday by: Kathleen Kitson

How to Host a Holiday (The Prequel to Ivy Stratton & the Time Machine)

Book Description (Amazon):

October 21, 2012

~Christmas Chick Lit Novella: 20,000 words~

Ivy Stratton has Big Plans to host an unforgettable Christmas dinner party.
She's compiled a gourmet menu, festive decor, and the perfect guest list, all in hopes of winning the heart of the man of her dreams.
But when her Big Plans fall apart, Ivy must scramble to make the most of the situation and keep her composure as the ideal holiday host.

This holiday novella is the prequel to the Ivy Stratton & the Time Machine series.

 I would like to start out by saying that this is not the kind of book I'd normally read. I am more of a paranormal/supernatural kind of gal. (: That said, the actual book (this is a prequel) is supposed to have something about a time machine- and that, my friends, is up my alley.
 I still thoroughly enjoyed it. 
 I really liked pretty much all of the characters, though sometimes I disliked G, which is pretty rare for me. There was a problem for me when it came to the relationship aspect-- I couldn't understand how someone can wait so long to tell someone they care about them. Seriously!? 
I will say, normally with a love triangle I automatically pick one person- but this book wouldn't let me choose! (; (If you can even call it a love triangle... it's like- the possibility of a love triangle.) 
  When this book was in my hands I could NOT put it down for the life of me! The author really did a great job keeping me entertained and wanting more. I rate this book 4.5 stars, and look forward to reading and reviewing How to Forget Your (Boy)friend. I also look forward to seeing how the author handles the time machine. (:
