    This second book has higher ratings than the first in the series But I find that I prefer the first one even though that one has aroutine trope a shotgun moc and a cruel cheating H.The premise and backstory of this book is certainly exceptional andintriguing An MB regency where the h was a struggling actress who has had a year long affair with the H, ten years ago and later they had parted in bitterness him alleging cheating and she angrily accepting the charges and leaving him This second book has higher ratings than the first in the series But I find that I prefer the first one even though that one has aroutine trope a shotgun moc and a cruel cheating H.The premise and backstory of this book is certainly exceptional andintriguing An MB regency where the h was a struggling actress who has had a year long affair with the H, ten years ago and later they had parted in bitterness him alleging cheating and she angrily accepting the charges and leaving him And, now they meet again she is now an acknowledged and revered actress, a widowed Comtesse with two kids and he s a dissolute and cynical rake The setting is same as the first book a few weeks at the Christmas house party at the H s grandparents estate, socializing and enacting plays with the large family and finding each other again I like the sophisticated h and her standing up to the H His dilemma of comparing his young intended with his old flame is also stimulating to say the least I absolutely adored the h s children and their strikingly opposing characterization, as also the H s remarkable affinity and ability to bond with them The children provided some very poignant, tear jerking moments in the book which should have been the romance s job Problem Arrrgh, this family As with the first book, all that family friends and then their preparing for the play was really distracting and boring The ow gets too much space as do her thoughts, revealing her sizing up and finding the H lacking I didn t need that the H s already a struggling figure and this added censure lowers him evenI get it that the sweet ing nue ow needs to be shown as not attracted to him so that she s not hurt in the end but maybe a little less of her pov would ve been better.And overall, the H spendstime with the ow than with the h.But the biggest disappointment for me is the ending view spoiler With all their MUs sorted out, he has an even bigger reason for being with the h their daughter , but he persists with his impending engagement with the ow Honor Nonsense Just plain spinelessness, I d say Love is just a word without commitment or intent A Hero regardless of alpha, beta typecasting is one who knows what he wants and goes for it all cylinders firing and nothing and no one can stop him What simportant than your own child It s left to the ow to dump him after he tells her that he loves her and only then he wakes up to this other possibility That means he would have gone ahead and married the ow if not for being dumped And there was no engagement official or otherwise Just courting Nice I HATE IT when the h and or their child are second best, second option So, meh hide spoiler

    Reading early out of print but now released in e format Balogh stories is informative of her growth as a writer It s also informative of her stagnation as a writer I think she has five, at most, basic romances that she recycles over and over through the years, mainly just supplying new names for the characters That s the stagnation The growth is reflected in the slightly better way she now develops the stories and the characters.This CHRISTMAS BELLE from 1994 has some good moments but it h Reading early out of print but now released in e format Balogh stories is informative of her growth as a writer It s also informative of her stagnation as a writer I think she has five, at most, basic romances that she recycles over and over through the years, mainly just supplying new names for the characters That s the stagnation The growth is reflected in the slightly better way she now develops the stories and the characters.This CHRISTMAS BELLE from 1994 has some good moments but it hasclumsy, tedious, annoying moments The hero here is slightly less of a jerk than Alex in the 1986 prequel, THE FIRST SNOWDROP, but I still wasn t overly fond of him The heroine here was less of a wimpy drip than the one in the prequel, but she had done and still did several things I did not approve of.Jack, cousin of Alex of Book 1, and grandson of the same set of ducal grandparents, is expected to pick a wife at the Christmas family get together this year Well, actually, his wife has already been picked out for him by his grandmother He is just supposed to meet her and propose marriage.Unfortunately, also invited to the bash is Isabella, an actress famous in both England and France, and widow of a French count and mother of two children Jack and Belle had been secret lovers almost a decade ago, when they were very young, he extremely immature and she an aspiring actress They parted bitterly because of their immaturity, some stupid misunderstandings and failures to communicate, all of which you ll learn about in the internal blah blah blah of both as the story develops in its repetitious, tedious, boring way.Again, as with the first book in this series, this is a formerly out of print Balogh which should have stayed that way Or at least a really low price for it would have lessened my disappointment and indignation

    Christmas Belle is the second book in the Frazer duet by Balogh, following The First Snowdrop This novel focuses on the reunion of a world weary aristocrat and the successful young actress he kept as a mistress ten years previous Their love for each other has never died despite misunderstandings and grief However a future together still seems impossible, and their emotional connection is tortured and poignant Still, a rewarding and touching HEA awaits in the wings amidst the house party Christmas Belle is the second book in the Frazer duet by Balogh, following The First Snowdrop This novel focuses on the reunion of a world weary aristocrat and the successful young actress he kept as a mistress ten years previous Their love for each other has never died despite misunderstandings and grief However a future together still seems impossible, and their emotional connection is tortured and poignant Still, a rewarding and touching HEA awaits in the wings amidst the house party theatricals where they meet again

    What an achingly sad story Two people who fell deeply and passionately in love when they were very young and lost each other After 9 years apart they find each other again, but because of circumstances, they almost lose their second chance as well.Note It was a bit disappointing that the young 19yr old betrothed of the Hero showedspine about controlling her future than the muchmature Hero and heroine who were about 30 and almost lost their own HEA because they allowed themselves What an achingly sad story Two people who fell deeply and passionately in love when they were very young and lost each other After 9 years apart they find each other again, but because of circumstances, they almost lose their second chance as well.Note It was a bit disappointing that the young 19yr old betrothed of the Hero showedspine about controlling her future than the muchmature Hero and heroine who were about 30 and almost lost their own HEA because they allowed themselves to be gently bullied into following convention, and not making waves

    A follow up to Balogh s The First Snowdrop, but written nearly a decade later, so lacking some of the annoying male arrogance of its predecessor It features almost the same plot as one of my favorite romances, Liz Carlyle s 2006 Two Little Lies A young man falls in love with an actress, and convinces her to be his mistress But his immature jealousy both of her male fans, and of her fame itself lead to heated arguments, and ultimately to her fleeing to another country Both feel done wrong b A follow up to Balogh s The First Snowdrop, but written nearly a decade later, so lacking some of the annoying male arrogance of its predecessor It features almost the same plot as one of my favorite romances, Liz Carlyle s 2006 Two Little Lies A young man falls in love with an actress, and convinces her to be his mistress But his immature jealousy both of her male fans, and of her fame itself lead to heated arguments, and ultimately to her fleeing to another country Both feel done wrong by the other, for reasons.But years later, after the actress has married and had children, she returns to England, where she encounters her first love again right when he s on the verge of becoming engaged Tempers sexual sparks fly, and ultimately secrets come to light, that allow each lover to better understand the feelings and actions of the other But will the impending engagement keep them apart Needless to say, while the plotlines of Balogh and Carlyle s books are nearly identical, both tell this story in their own, stylistically recognizable way I particularly liked the lesson that Balogh s hero must learn here although it may be rather anachronistic that trying to jealously constrain a woman who has a drive to create art through performance is both pointless and cruel As Isabella tells Jack, It was not a good love It was a jealous and possessive love It was a love without trust and respect

    Notes from the archive I did liked it because the characters were strong and believable but I didn t love it for 2 reasons I think the misunderstandings went on for a bit too long I had already guessed what Jack finds out almost at the end and because when they admitted their feelings for each other I felt they should have acted on it and not rely on fate or in this case Juliana to allow them to be together.2nd readThis is a book I have read a few years ago I noticed I hadn t written a Notes from the archive I did liked it because the characters were strong and believable but I didn t love it for 2 reasons I think the misunderstandings went on for a bit too long I had already guessed what Jack finds out almost at the end and because when they admitted their feelings for each other I felt they should have acted on it and not rely on fate or in this case Juliana to allow them to be together.2nd readThis is a book I have read a few years ago I noticed I hadn t written a proper review of it and since I read book n 1 in this duet a few weeks ago I thought this might be a good read for Christmas Eve I do love Christmas house parties and Balogh does them so well that I couldn t resist it.Belle and Jack were once lovers They meet again nine years later during Jack s grandparents traditional Christmas house party Belle is the guest of honor of what would otherwise be a just a family reunion.I really enjoyed seeing the characters I had met earlier in The First Snowdrop They all seem like such a warm and close knit family, I would have loved to see Freddie and Ruby get their own book or to read about the Duke and the Duchess s courtship and wedding On a second read Christmas Belle is even better than I remembered I don t usually go for the big misundertanding plot but here I felt thatthan the effects of a big mis situation we see the characters grow and acknowledge their own errors and behaviours We see how the years of separation and their new situation in life makes them experience things differently and how they take into account other people that are also important to them.My complaint about this story continues to be the same, though The HEA is left in the hands of fate and if I understand Belle and Jack s behaviour I would also would like to have seen themactively pursuing their happiness I m sure it would give us some wonderful angst ridden moments that they would eventually have overcome to celebrate their happiness.Despite this I think Christmas Belle is a really good Christmas novel and I wish Balogh will keep writing this type of story I am well on my way to read all her books and I can t imagine the day when I won t have one to look forward to Grade 4 5

    This story of Isabelle and Jack is very typical of Balogh s Christmas stories with all the obligatory merry making of an old fashioned English Christmas Sugary sweet but bittersweet at times it is a cozy read for any time of year.
