Completions and Connections by Kathryn R Biel **Review & Giveaway**

Hey Everyone!

I'd love to introduce you to Kathryn R Biel, who is on tour with her Holiday Novella, Completions and Connections.

Telling stories of resilient women, Kathryn R. Biel hails from upstate New York and is a spouse and mother of two wonderful and energetic kids. In between being Chief Home Officer and Director of Child Development of the Biel household, she works as a school-based physical therapist. She attended Boston University and received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from The Sage Colleges. After years of writing countless letters of medical necessity for wheelchairs, finding increasingly creative ways to encourage the government and insurance companies to fund her clients' needs, and writing entertaining annual Christmas letters, she decided to take a shot at writing the kind of novel that she likes to read. Her musings and rants can be found on her personal blog, Biel Blather. She is the author of Good Intentions (2013), Hold Her Down (2014),I'm Still Here (2014), Jump, Jive, and Wail (2015), and Killing Me Softly (2015).

Completions and Connections: A Romantic Holiday Novella by Kathryn R. Biel

Christine's list of resolutions contains many clich├ęs. Try something new. Buy a pair of heels. Get a promotion. Fall in love.
Seems simple, especially when Christine meets Patrick, the man who could be Mr. Right. He's got the right credentials: a job, a sense of humor, a love of all things Indiana Jones, and best of all, he's actually taller than Christine. But busy schedules take over and get in the way of Patrick and Christine's budding romance.
Life interferes, as it has a way of doing, and Christine wants to throw in the towel. Is the magic of the Christmas season enough to renew Christine's faith in love?

Hey! Here's my review.

Completions and Connections is an entertaining novella, spanning one year. Kathryn wrote it in tribute to one of her favourite Christmas songs, Christmas Wrapping by The Waitress. I wasn’t familiar with the song, so looked it up after I finished reading, and it’s a fantastic tribute! I liked Christine and mentally encouraged her not to give up on Patrick. Ok, so maybe I verbally encouraged her too, but no one else was present to confirm or deny that fact. They were so good together but seemed destined to be kept apart.

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. This was the first book I’ve read by Kathryn and I already have another couple of her full length novels lined up to read soon.
