It’s that time of year again…the time to read adorable, heartwarming Christmas novellas like Amy Lamont’s Joyfully Yours. This was my first introduction to Amy Lamont’s writing, and I really enjoyed it! I liked reading a love story with a genuinely nice, ordinary, but still very attractive guy—oh, and he also happens to be a priest. (He’s not Catholic, though, so there’s no forbidden romance drama here. Just hot Father Michael.) And our heroine Faith is very relatable and sympathetic as a twenty-something questioning her choices in life, still feeling pressure from her family’s expectations. Though this was a short novella, there were some really nice scenes outside of the love story as well, especially Faith’s interaction with a young girl, Laura, while Faith is volunteering at Father Michael’s church. I loved how Laura reminded Faith of herself even though their circumstances in life were so different. I also liked that, while Faith’s mother and sister could be incredibly annoying, they became more three-dimensional and sympathetic throughout the story despite the short length. The ending felt a little too perfect, but…who doesn’t love a fairy tale at Christmastime? I know I do!
