Review of Christmas Carol by Michele Gorman!

Happy Sunday!

Christmas season is soon here and many authors are already publishing their interpretations of different Christmas stories. I really enjoy reading them and today I have the pleasure of posting a review of one of them - Christmas Carol by Michele Gorman.

Here is my review.

One winter wedding, two happy couples, three ex-boyfriends... And a very uncomfortable weekend.
Carol hates Christmas. Being recently dumped, she’s not crazy about weddings either. So her sister Marley’s nuptials, over the Christmas weekend, are making her positively Scrooge-like.
When she arrives for the weekend at the stately home in rural Scotland to find her three ex-boyfriends in attendance, Carol has no choice but to face her ghosts to discover what really happened in those relationships, learning a lot about herself in the process. As the snow falls outside and the fire crackles in the hearth, might one of the wedding guests become the harbinger of Christmases to come?

My review:
I love a good Christmas story and I don't mind if these stories are based on the classic Christmas stories. It's fun to read and these stories always make me missing Christmas. Luckily, the holiday season is not so far away, only few weeks. Christmas Carol by Michele Gorman was a quirky, witty and lovable short story!
The main character Carol hates Christmas and weddings and she needs to be locked in a mansion with 3 ex-boyfriends to set some perspective on her love-life, on her understanding of Christmas. I loved that the Scrooge was a female. The characters were enjoyable and I did not want this story to be ending. It could have been a full length Christmas novel and that is the only criticism - it ended too quickly!
Loved it! A very good holiday reading!
5 Flowers!
5 stars!
