Ginny and Blake have been in love since they were teenagers. Then Ginny moved away and has never been back. Until now. And she brings danger with her. Will Ginny and Blake be able to move past their differences in time to save Ginny from a desperate man?

Characters: 1/1

To put it plainly, Ginny is a spoiled brat and Blake is the consummate gentleman. At first. Then Ginny starts to really grow up into an accomplished young woman with ambitions.

Blake was hurt deeply when Ginny left and didn’t write a single letter back to him so many years back. When she returns and the feelings he buried so deep start to work to the surface, he is faced with decisions and sometimes they aren’t the right ones.

Dialogue: .75/1

The dialogue fit the characters. Although, when it was first mentioned that Blake’s parents are from England and that Blake has a slight accent, I would have never guessed it. A few Briticisms may have helped that some. As with The Christmas Bargain, there was a little more heat than I cared for.

Plot/Storyline: .75/1

Overall, the plot and storyline were good. There was more heat than I found comfortable, but it never progressed further (on screen) than some heated kisses.

Overall writing quality: .75/1

The editing appeared better in The Christmas Token than it was in The Christmas Bargain, but there were still a few typos. Overall, though, the quality was very good.

Un-put-down-ability: 1/1

Shanna has a talent for writing books you can’t put down. This one didn’t disappoint.

Conclusion: 4.25/5

Again, the heat level was more than I cared for, but still what would usually be considered clean. If you like suspenseful Christmas romance, you’ll enjoy this book.
