Holly O’Neill has always cherished her charm bracelet saying that the charms are simply a map to her life marking the good and bad times. She works in a upscale secondhand clothing store and when a donation comes in with a charm bracelet mistakenly inside Holly is determined to find the owner.
Greg and his father have been looking for his mother’s charm bracelet. She had become sick and the bracelet had always been special to her so the family really wants to keep it but doesn’t know what had happened.
I was a bit disappointed with The Gift of a Charm. I thought going into this one that it was going to be a lovely holiday romance read. Unfortunately the synopsis of searching for a charm bracelet’s owner is basically the entirety of the read.
Starting off it was sort of a fun little mystery told by the one searching, the original owner and then the son of the owner. But at 400+ pages this just became really boring for me waiting for the “more” that never really came. There was a little twist at the end but a little too little too late for my taste.
I won this book from Goodreads First Reads.
