Yup! Pyland NAILS Scarlet’s Story
5 out of 5 stars
The Wait is Over by Nicole Pyland is a captivating addition as the sixth book in The Holiday series. Pyland masterfully delivers a beautiful romance story that does not disappoint. From the start, it is evident that Pyland had something special in store for Scarlet, and her storyline builds up beautifully throughout the previous books in the series.
One of Pyland’s strengths is her ability to create believable and captivating characters that jump off the pages. Dakota and Scarlet’s slow-burn romance perfectly exemplifies Pyland’s excellent storytelling. The tension, anticipation, and character development are incredibly well-crafted and engaging both leading up to this book and within it.
I appreciated that Pyland addresses the challenges that come with coming out to your family later in life in this story. Scarlet’s panic and worries are relatable and realistic, making the audiobook even more immersive. The Wait Is Over has the perfect balance of romance and emotional depth, with just the right amount of angst. Carolyn Eve’s narration is spot on, making Scarlet’s character come to life in a way that will stay with me for a long time.
Overall, The Wait is Over is a fantastic audiobook that is a testament to Pyland’s storytelling talent. It is an excellent addition to the series, and the title perfectly matches the story’s theme. It is a must-read for anyone who loves a heartwarming and beautifully written romance, especially one about finding love for the first time (even if it’s in your 20s)
This is book six in the Holiday series.
Scarlet Campbell’s friends had all coupled off, and it had happened this year. All five of them had found love while Scarlet had continued to go back and forth about coming out to her family, and on top of that, she still couldn’t talk to women. Every time she tried, she choked. She got nervous. She said something stupid. As a result, she was still a single nerd who worked as a data analyst and did coding on the side.
Dakota Wagner was new to the marketing team of a software company, tasked with building a customer community. To do that, though, she needed data. When Dakota was sent Scarlet’s way, she found the woman endlessly adorable, so she wanted to get to know more about her other than her fascination with sugar and numbers. In Scarlet’s eyes, Dakota was sexy, smart, and would have no problem finding a girlfriend easily, so Scarlet didn’t think she’d have a chance. Little did she know that Dakota was exactly who she needed in her life to get the courage to be more herself, conquer her fears, and finally come out to her family.The Wait Is Over by Nicole Pyland
