Bad pacing makes the romance very slow and then very sudden. Very festive, but rather syrupy-sweet and stereotypical.

Inhaltsangabe zu "Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles"

Toby Kincaid loves being the junior librarian in his hometown of Sandy Lake, Ohio. He spends his days surrounded by books and chatting with the library patrons. He especially adores the head librarian, Mr. Miggles, who is kind, witty, knowledgeable about everything, and hopelessly addicted to Christmas. Sean Miggles is also pretty cute—especially for an older guy who wears ties and suit pants every day.

But Sean keeps himself at a distance, and there’s a sadness about him that Toby can’t figure out. When Sean is accused of a crime he didn’t commit, he gives up without a fight. Toby realizes that he alone can save the library—and their head librarian.

Toby will need to uncover the darkness in Sean’s past and prove to him that he deserves a second chance at life and at love too. And while Christmas miracles are being handed out, maybe Toby will get his own dearest wish—to love and be loved by Mr. Miggles.

    Kurzmeinung: Bad pacing makes the romance very slow and then very sudden. Very festive, but rather syrupy-sweet and stereotypical.
    Bad pacing, syrupy without giving the romance the required time to grow.

    Toby is the junior librarian in his home town. He's got a boyfriend who keeps borrowing money without paying him back and never like to do anything Toby enjoys. He's actually had his eyes on his boss for a bit, head librarian Mr. Miggles, who dresses very professional, speaks rather stuffy and seems a bit sad all the time. But Mr. Miggles is keeping a professional distance.
    But then Mr. Miggles is accused of a serious crime and the town board is trying to severely cut the library hours at the same time.

    I'm not sold on this one. It's cute, sure, but I felt the plot completely ran over the romance.

    I did like Toby, who's cheeky and cute and I liked Mr. Miggles, who's a bit stuffy, clever and rather more tongue-in-cheek, but the romance development is just not there.
    The thing is, it starts out slow, Toby still has a boyfriend, Mr. Miggles is being very professional and distant. There's a bit of a vibe, but that's it. Then you have the big plot point (which felt really dramatic and dark for a holiday novel) and the two are separated for a big chunk of the book. And when they see each other again it's big confession time and they are basically together. I wanted them to spent some time actually falling in love. The MCs really did not interact all that much at all in the book. There's a kinda cute/hot library sex scene in the end, but really, that felt a bit shoehorned in, too.

    Now, the story certainly feels very festive and heart-warming, but it's also very much black and white with a typical villain and a town rallying to the course. It seemed a bit too stereotypical and overly sappy at times with little counteract the overt syrupyness of it all (besides the rather dark accusation that's the starting point).

    So yeah, I'm mostly meh about the romance. It just doesn't feel like it's the main point of the story, which is a shame, since I really liked both MCs, and am sure I'd have loved the book if it gave them more time to shine together.
