CLAIMING HIS CHRISTMAS BRIDE
Staying with her brother and his wife for her nephew's christening and Christmas, Molly tries to enjoy herself. Another houseguest, Gideon, is drawn to Molly but believes she had an affair with his married brother when he was alive. Although they don't like each other, they also can't stay away from one another. Carole Mortimer's latest, Claiming His Christmas Bride (2), is filled with passion and tension, but the characters seem flat and uninteresting. More complex development would have added spark to this holiday tale.
