Review: Christmas Carol by Michele Gorman

Christmas Carol by Michele Gorman

Pages: 101
Format: ebook

Goodreads:  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 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?

Kritters Thoughts:  There are many renditions of the classic story - The Christmas Carol, but I think this is my first time reading a chick lit rendition AND I loved it!  Carol must confront three past boyfriends at her sister's wedding and hopefully after these "encounters" she find the true reason why she has been unsuccessful in love.  

Perfect and sweet.  The way the three ex boyfriends had different ways to show her what she needed to change was great.  I appreciated the lesson that you need to learn from each relationship, whether it be romantic or not, but learn a lesson so each experience makes you a better person.

This was short and sweet and perfect to curl up for an afternoon of reading during the holiday season; forget the holiday to do list for an afternoon!

Rating: perfect to cuddle with!
