In Christmas with Her Ex by Fiona McArthur, midwife Kelsie Summers bumps into her ex and the man she jilted, Connor Black and his grandmother on Europe’s most opulent train The Orient Express. Even after so many years behind them, Kelsie hasn’t forgotten her first love and neither has Connor forgotten her. The attraction still burns bright between them and their kisses are hotter than ever. A lot is about to happen in a few short days this Christmas when two people are given a second chance at love.
Fiona McArthur tells a great Christmas story about second chances in Christmas with Her Ex which is the second part of the duet Christmas Express.
Kelsie and Connor are trying to avoid each other due to the heartbreak they gave each other in the past but Connor’s mischievous grandmother butts in and tries her best to make them realize they still love each other. So you get a couple who gets a second chance in love, a matchmaking grandmother and an awesome Orient Express romance.
I liked Kelsie but her reasons for jilting Connor were not justified according to me and even though towards the end the reader is given a back story as to what might have influenced her decision, it still did not bode well with me. Connor was the silent kind of hero and I absolutely loved him. He may come across cold but aloof and silent are better ways to describe him because he has emotions and feelings-he just hid them better than others. His grandmother was an amazing woman and I loved that she stayed in focus without taking away the spotlight from the couple.The medical details were good and to create a medical situation so skilfully on a train is not an easy task.
Overall Christmas with Her Ex is everything a good medical romance should be and it tells a story which resonates with everything Christmas stands for.
