Bestseller Books The Twilight Before Christmas Finally I have gotten to read Kate Drake's story. So that leaves me one more Drake sister book to complete (Dangerous Tides--Libby's story). All in all, I found The Twilight Before Christmas to be a great story. I can't give it 5 stars, because it did drag a little in some parts. It's probably a 4.25 star story. I read this story out of The Wicked and the Wondrous duology.What I liked about it: *Matt's adoration for Kate was very endearing. It was funny how he felt like he made a fool out of himself in front of her, and how she made this very physically-accomplished guy act clumsy and wreck three cars. I like that although he became enamored of her when she was fifteen and he was college age (I'm going to assume he was maybe 19 or 20), he didn't act on it, but left to her grow up. Plus he joined the military and Special Forces. Some might argue that this was just an infatuation, but the fact that he had these feelings for so many years suggests that this is not the case. When this book rolls around, Matt is in full hero-in-pursuit mode, although gentle and wooing about. Matt was a very nice guy. *The humor in this story was great (which I alluded to above). Poor Kate thought that Matt's brothers were laughing at her, because she always felt clumsy and inadequate around Matt in their interactions. They were really laughing at their brother, and how stone cold cupid-struck he was for Kate. This story had lots of other family interactions that made me laugh. Christine Feehan really is a funny lady, for all the angst and darkness in her stories. *Family and friends--always a good thing for this reader, although sometimes I get a little bored with some of the descriptions of various denizens of Sea Harbor. I like the Drake books best when they focus on the family and immediate friend interactions than talking about such and such and who did what around town. I felt a little cheated because we didn't really see too much Damon in this story. He's a cool character for me. What can I say? I love nerdy guys. And Damon, well, he's brilliant. Smart is sexy. So: I.Wanted.More.Damon! Loved seeing all the Drake sisters. What a cool bunch of women. Since I read Hidden Currents just before this book, it was nice to see the beginnings of the bond between Jackson and Elle. Sadly, no Ilya or Alexsandr :( I love me some Jonas, and he's in this one a lot. You can tell he has it bad for Hannah. *Very cool gothic, scary, creepy angle. The ghostly villain, shall we say, reminded me of the creepy Old Man from Poltergeist II. It goes without saying that it was a bit scary in moments since I refuse to watch that movie since I saw it the first time. The backstory behind the haunting was very interesting, and Ms. Feehan utilized it very well to tell us a little about the history of Sea Harbor and a bit about the Drake ancestors who settled in this seaside town. The scary parts probably dragged out a little too long for me, but overall, I enjoyed it. *Kate and Matt--Although I could see where Kate was coming from with her fears that she was a mis-match for Matt, the man was clearly in love with her and adored her. Say yes already! I doubt the man was going to change his mind after being in love with her for what I estimate is over ten years. So that part was a bit frustrating for me. Great love scenes (as usual). All in all, a nice story, and just right for this time of year. I liked the message about religious tolerance and the fact that we can all be united in some way, even if we don't share the same beliefs.

  4.

  5. Oh, my God That s Kate Drake, Danny said gleefully, pointing to a woman on a horse, riding along the narrow trail on the side of the road That can t be her Matt hastily rolled down his window and craned his neck, gawking unashamedly He could only see the back of the rider, who was dressed all in white and had thick chestnut hair that flamed red in the sunshine His heart pounded His mouth went dry Only Kate Drake could get away with wearing white and riding a horse so close to the side of the roa [...]


  6. If you ve ever wanted to know how it would sound for the librarian to read a romance novel using the same voice she uses to read Dr Seuss to the little kiddies at story time, this is the audio book for you This is the worst audiobook narration I ve ever heard Really It ruins the book Not that Feehan s books are on a par with Hemingway, but it wasn t as bad as Teri Clark Linden made it sound She had clearly done some homework with the book because she bothered to make different voices for the 15 [...]


  7. Achei este 2 volume das irm s Drake mais interessante do que o 1 , apesar de o fio condutor ser o mesmo uma hist ria de amor no meio de uma situa o perigosa e desta vez, com mais elementos sobrenaturais N o sei se foi de ter lido em ingl s, se foi da pr pria hist ria, com mais ingredientes m gicos e sobrenaturais, bem como ter gostado mais deste casal, mas a verdade que o livro me surpreendeu pela positiva Mas n o esperem um livro complexo, mas sim uma hist ria simples e que entret m Este livro [...]


  8. This book was not my bowl of rice but for others it may be the perfect sticky rice The story line seemed to drag and repeat itself in conversations among the sisters I kept making sure I was turning the page And, the sensual tension between Kate and Matt was really wearing thin rather quickly But, the tension finally ended, and the bosom heaving and horizontal hijinks started Always with a dash of malevolence thrown in for good measure Sorry folks, I wanted to like it Different strokes for diffe [...]


  9. gostei da continua o da historia das irm s Drake.o desenrolar da ac o r pido e vai cativando medida que a historia vai acontecendo.historia de trama simples, n o se nota grande desenvolvimento de relacionamentos a n o ser o dos personagens principais.apesar de tudo gera uma vontade de chegar ao fim para ver como tudo termina, se bem que ficou a saber a pouco o fim quase que acontece sem darmos por isso.


  10. I listened to this while working out on the tread mill and found myself ignoring the audio book while focusing on exercise Part of why I listen to audio books on the tread mill is to FORGET the drudge of my exercise so that kinda backfired on me Still enjoyed the story for the most part but I thought a LOT could be cut out and some of the drama came across as WTF to me.


  11. 2 in Drake Sisters and Kate Drake was one of my favorite sisters in this series, so far Both characters were neat and though they really had little in the character development arena, it was a good book Erie.


  12. de facto gostei muito mais desta irm Drake do que da primeira notei uma evolu o na escrita de um livro para o outro gigante Muito mais estruturado, muito mais consistente e a hist ria mais bem preparada que venha a pr xima irm Drake




  13. One effective way to help kids understand bad writing might be to craft an example which is so over the top that the flaws become immediately evident Of course, the problem is that you teachers would have to take the time to prepare such a document Or so I thought Today I discovered that author Christine Fahey has done the work for you and she has earned an A plus I almost never give up on a book, at least not after a couple of chapters But this is so bad that I have no alternative The overwroug [...]


  14. 4 stars I have owned these books for ages and am reviewing them as I read them once again.I am a big fan of Ms Feehan and give credit when it is due Whilst I really enjoyed this story it was not an I Love it one The reason was the suspense promised in the blurb did not come through enough A bit eerie but not scary.Matt is so cute being tongue tied around Kate whom he has had a crush on for years Now Matt is a decorated Army Ranger but he feels like a clumsy bumbling fool around Kate I loved how [...]


  15. This was an nteresting book about one of the seven Drake sisters who lived in Sea Haven Paranormal romance is not my preferred genre but I have read and enjoyed, Feehan s Sea Haven Sisters of the Heart series Therefore I wanted to read at lest one of the Drake sister s book since Sea Haven was the setting Both Kate Drake and Matthew Granite were likable characters However, I did not totally understand the villainous fog or the mysterious happenings that tried to prevent the annual Christmas page [...]


  16. This was a fun supernatural romance with a holiday theme The story follows the Drake sisters and their mission to protect their home town of Sea Haven from an evil force trying to ruin Christmas Kate has a wonderful ability to calm and soothe with her voice and her sisters all have their own mystical and helpful talents There is a strong theme of family bonds and history woven into a traditional boy gets girl story Matt is an appealing leading man and is a nice match for Kate.

  19. I don t know what it is about this author that makes me read her books, especially this series It s not that good at all for me to spend time reading it but as awful as it is i find myself straining to see just how bad it can get I guess it s unto the next one for me until i find something else.




  20. A fun, witchy, romance Strange things are happening around Sea Haven and Kate Drake is in the middle of things Matt doesn t stand a chance when she asks for his help.
