Before I begin:
A few keys 🔑 from the synopsis 1) showed-in = close proximity 2) abandoned baby 🤞🏼 found family 3) the holidays can make you 😝 so seeking out peace before the storm is understandable.
Always work on getting oriented the 1st 5 chapters 🤔 So far, the story is vastly different from how I anticipated 🤔 It’s intriguing 🤨 Glad that 😁 even early in on the story, 🔑 players are interested. So, even while we’re piecing stuff together, it reinforces how books can be puzzles 🧩 too (meant to be solved 👍🏽) The attraction between Vim and Sopjie grows ♥️ They’re still learning about each other 🤔 Makes me wonder 🤔 how much of their dynamic is because Sophie needs Vim vs. genuine attraction 🤷🏽♀️ Vim with Kit 😍 I couldn’t blame Sophie for being attracted to Vim 😂
Vim’s finally agreed to stay a night 👍🏽 Sophie is anxious about being alone with Kit. Learn Vim if from a Baron family and Sophie is from a Duke’s family but the other party doesn’t know 🤷🏽♀️😂
The arrival of Sophie’s brothers (3) rejuvenated the story for me. Finally saw a change of scenery 👏🏽 Just as the relationship between Sophie and Vim gets deeper. Meet new people too! Helps to see Sophie and Vim among people was nice 😊 I love romance and see how there could be complaints about the heavy emphasis on Kit, but I like to see family dynamics too 😁
End of book 📖
So forgot 🤦🏼♀️ to check-in… The Wyndam family 👍🏽 Vim-Sophie ♥️ Enjoyed learning more about Vim & Sophie 🧐 Enjoyed the story more after Sophie’s brothers came 🤗 Sophie regretful about Kit and Vim. Christmas wish was granted 😍
