'Marian's Christmas Wish' is a book of two halves. The first half has a good Christmassy atmosphere with the main character trying to overcome family hardship and create a wonderful Christmas. It is warm-hearted and humorous. It then becomes more serious and the tone of the book changes becoming more of an adventure story. I really enjoyed the sense of humour throughout the book and am looking forward to reading more of Carla Kelly's work.

*Huge Spoiler Alert* I really enjoy Carla Kelly's books. I loved the characters in this book and the way the romance was developing so sweetly. However, toward the end of the book, I was totally bummed out that Gil didn't explain his intentions to Marian when he became "engaged to the spy" and that in fact he wound up bedding the spy when he was so in love with Marian. Pretty much ruined the ending for me. Of course, he wound up with Marian in the end but I was so emotionally involved in the story, I became totally stressed out during the past few chapters.

This is a thoroughly charming and heartwarming story. Marian Wynswich is sixteen-going-on-seventeen, but nonetheless has shouldered much of the responsibility for her household since the death of her profligate father the year before.

She loves her family dearly, but they don't make life all that easy for Marian or for themselves. Her younger brother Alistair is sent down from Eton and her elder brother Percy is often away. Her sister Ariadne, though beautiful, will not say `boo' to a goose and her mother is often self-absorbed and critical of Marian to the point of unkindness.

Marian is educated rather than accomplished; she frequently speaks without thinking and displays hoydenish tendencies - but for all that, she is devoted to her family and wants only to secure their happiness. Unfortunately however, the death of her father has left the family in straightened circumstances, and they will have to sell their home in order to clear the debts he left behind. This will therefore be the last Christmas they have in the house, and Marian is determined to ensure that it is their best ever.

I would normally have difficulty in empathising with a heroine who is so young, but Marian is so well written that her youth is never an issue. She is naturally lively, intelligent and caring; and if there are times when she does act rather immaturely, those are more than compensated for by the depth of her compassion and love for her family. And as the novel progresses, we see her starting to make the journey from girlhood to womanhood as she becomes more circumspect while losing none of the qualities which make her so likeable.

This books was so much more than I'd hoped. I loved it! What a Christmas story! There was plenty of fun, adventure, intrigue, mystery, and love. Yes, ALL of those! It was such a pleasant surprise!! I really enjoyed it and the time period. I kind of felt like I was reading some Austen, with a twist.
Loved the characters. Marian and Gil were my favorite, of course. They have so much fun! Marian and her brother Alistair get themselves into so much trouble time and again. It never ceased to amaze me.
I also love it when the characters are friends first before they fall in love. Isn't that how it really happens?! I think it adds something special. I stayed up into the night to finish reading this book. I really enjoyed it. It has all the elements of a perfect Christmas story! I know you'll enjoy it!
