And Then There Were Four by Elna Holst

 

⭐⭐⭐☆

This is the fourth book of Holst’s Tinsel and Spruce Needles series that essentially has one book every Christmas – so the title can be as much play about that, as about the arrival of twins.

This book is an update about what’s happening with all the characters from the series. Each of the four chapters gives a peek into a different character’s life. The first chapter has Erika Stolt and Padma Lingren (from Candlelight Kisses) who are about to have twins. The second chapter tells us what’s happening with Helena Hansen (now this is a character who deserves a love story of her own). The third chapter has the Andersson sisters, Mia (Wild Bells) and Fifi (Little x). The final chapter has the birth of the twins and the start of something new for Gunilla Andersson (Mia and Fifi’s mom – and we hope for her story too – though this one is supposed to be the last of the series).

The writing is fluid, the characters – we already like them all from the previous books and they remain great. Love the dialogues and consistency of characterisation across books. All the characters are linked in one way or another but interestingly, each chapter can be read as a short story by itself. Our favourite chapter is the third one – it has the strongest and the most romantic story. It would help if you’ve read the previous books in the series to get a sense of the characters and their relationships. (We’ve missed Candlelight Kisses so our connect with Erika and Padma was limited – though we really liked them individually and together in this one).

The book is rather short and given its length, there are a surprising number of explicit scenes. Since the sex is between different couples, it doesn’t seem like erotica, though a large part of the book is erotica.

This is a short, easy read about people you’ve met and liked earlier.
