by Kelley Armstrong
Werewolves Elena Michaels and Clayton Danvers want to give their four-year-old twins, Kate and Logan, something their parents never had: a nice, normal holiday. No Pack responsibilities, no homicidal half-demons or power-hungry sorcerers to deal with - just the four of them, alone, at a chalet outside Ontario’s Algonquin Park.
Clay and Elena are one of my favorite couples in urban fantasy, so was very excited to read this one! And I'm happy to report that it doesn't disappoint!
Elena has always wanted a family Christmas, and Clay is determined to give it to her. I'm thrilled that having children hasn't ruined their relationship, as they make a great couple! Unlike most urban fantasy couples, Clay and Elena butt heads more often than not, but you know that they really love each other. The twins just add to their relationship, and I love seeing them as parents!
Was a little surprised that they haven't told the twins that their family and friends are all werewolves, but can understand why Elena wants to wait. Pretty sure the kids know something is up, so curious to see how the parents handle it.
The main plot was okay, but I found myself more interested in the family dynamics. And I don't remember the younger weres from previous books, but it's been awhile. Really liked them, and hope to learn more about them in the next book!
This was a fast, enjoyable read and should tide you over until the next book. Kelley is an extremely talented writer and has yet to disappoint! Gave it a 4/5 as I really enjoyed seeing Clay and Elena again!
