The greatest gift at Christmas is love. Love is all around you. It’s never too late.

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. I haphazardly added it only because it was a Christmas book and it has a high rating on Goodreads. Also, my friend Cara wrote a wonderful review about it so I thought I’d give it a chance. When I cracked it open I was dismayed to see it was a Hallmark movie because I despise them. But this was unexpectedly different and I think I enjoyed it so much because of the “A Christmas Carol” vibes. The 1951 movie version with Allista Sim is the best Christmas movie ever made…there I said it!

I loved that the romance wasn’t central to the story. In fact, it’s hardly there at all until the end. This is not your typical cheesy, schmaltzy Christmas story and that was a very festive surprise. The story has a sad background because our main character, Alexis lost both her parents on Christmas Eve twenty years ago. She now despises Christmas and anything that has to do with the holiday so she focuses solely on work. She isn’t very nice to her employees or herself for that matter. Will visiting the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future heal Alexis’s heart which has frozen over? You’ll have to read the book to find out.
