Book Review: ‘The Christmas Husband’ by Lucette Nel

About The Book

It was one little lie told only to protect impoverished Naomi Stuart and her daughter. But when Benedict Ramsay — a man she met fleetingly years before who should be in England — arrives in town, all she’d carefully constructed threatens to crumble.

Benedict arrives a stranger in Noelle, hoping to confront the father who’d abandoned him. What he did not expect was to discover he was a married man … to a woman he didn’t even remember meeting. And against his will, Benedict warms to the idea of a ready-made family

About Lucette Nel
Lucette Nel is a coffee addicted work-in-progress daughter of the Lord Almighty. She’s a mommy to a rambunctious boy and sweet baby girl and wife to her best friend and real-life hero. Along with a spoiled Pug, they make their home in Gauteng, the smallest of nine provinces in South Africa.

She works as a bookkeeper and uses every available second to create interesting characters in historical settings.

My Rating 4 stars!

I am a fan of Lucette Nel’s writing. I have read her work since her first book and they just keep getting better and better.

Imagine being alone, raising a child and inventing a husband, then have that man actually show up in town? My goodness, what’s a girl to do? Everyone in town believes Naomi’s husband ran off and left her. Now here he is, and with no idea what’s going on.

I love it when I connect with a book from the very first and that’s exactly what happened here. Nel has crafted characters that are ‘real’ to the reader with a plot that is surely believable. I loved every minute. I am not very much looking forward to her next offering. Recommended.

*My thanks to the publisher and author for a digital copy of this book. I was not compensated in any way and the opinion here is my own.1 like
