    About this Christmas novella. Short! I enjoyed it. It was like watching (reading in this case) one of those Hallmark Christmas romance movies. I did not need much character development. For me, it brought back fond memories of infatuation around the Christmas season. Glad it was my first read within the series. About the series: Looking forward to reading. It seems the series is filled with lite, endearing, meddling, mature ladies. 3.5 stars

    3 stars. A Christmas-themed light-hearted historical romp. Cute and entirely forgettable.

    3.5 stars For a short novel it was pretty good. First time reading this author and it seems I'll try again later. It was really hilarious sometimes, especially with those three meddling ladies. Wesley was pretty cute, a good leading "actor". And I liked Anabel's bravery towards the end to accept her feelings and tell Wesley she fell for him, even if he's an actor and therefore penniless. If only she knew. lol. I only would have liked to see more of the interaction between the protagonists to fe 3.5 stars For a short novel it was pretty good.

    I do have mixed feelings about this read, for a short one, it took me long to read it. Not usually a good thing. Okay it was a novella but things felt rushed in, they come to first meet, then they are in love. I do liked the premises, the mixed identity but after I had a hard time to believe the story, this insta-Love affair lacked. The only funny scene was when the truth is revealed. It is a clean read. A wasted opportunity, 3 stars for me.

    Anabel Snelling does not want to marry a childhood friend. An American, Wesley Grant, is in London to get funding for his new design in chronometers. Anabel mistakes him for the actor she hired to portray her love interest. Lots of confusion with a HEA!

    Anabel needs a fake fiancee for just a few weeks. Her aunt has hired an American actor. So, when she meets an American at the place determined by her aunt, she starts explaining her situation to him. He is not an actor, he is Wesley. He is in England to meet her father in order to try sell a device he invented. But, he finds Anabel and her story charming. The fact that she is beautiful is an added bonus. He agrees to pretend but he does an even better job than expected from any actor. Ms Alexander Anabel needs a fake fiancee for just a few weeks. Her aunt has hired an American actor. So, when she meets an American at the place determined by her aunt, she starts explaining her situation to him. He is not an actor, he is Wesley. He is in England to meet her father in order to try sell a device he invented. But, he finds Anabel and her story charming. The fact that she is beautiful is an added bonus. He agrees to pretend but he does an even better job than expected from any actor. Ms Alexander always provides humor in her stories and this is no exception. A great deal of the humor comes from the three elderly ladies who are determined to help Anabel and Wes make a marriage. Anabel and Wes are very likable characters. Both of them are willing to seek adventure. They also agree that marriage should be because of love, not because of any time table. The fact that Anabel will soon be 21 does not mean she will be on the shelf. This novella is amusing and entertaining and definitely one I enjoyed. Just what I expect when I read what Ms Alexander has written.

    Part of the Lady Travelers Society series, this is a light-hearted romp, perfect for pre-Christmas reading. I loved the main characters simply because they are good people and perfect for each other. The web that is woven is quite simple, so I enjoyed seeing how it all got tangled and then simply twined together. If you like traditional romances with maybe a spicy kiss, then this book would probably be up your alley. Victorian romance readers would enjoy it.
