If you're like me you will get that into a book it basically becomes real life, well in a sense haha. I fell into Christmas Carol with a thud and basically got covered in family warmth, love and snow.

I adored this book, it is extremely funny and has been written extremely well. It's fast, full and well lovely. The plot is really good and it has the brilliant addition of little sub plots that have you cringing with ex-boyfriend embarrassment and also heartache. I adored every single character in the book. Honestly I did, there is a way about then that strikes you as good people, even the dicks! My favourite being Carol. She has one amazing sense of humour and I adored seeing her flourish throughout the book to become the person you know she actually is.

I will be keeping an eye out for more of Michele Gorman's work after this.

Full of Christmas love, joy, weddings, family, snow and ex's. Wonderful.

During weeks such as these, with overtime at work, the start of the Christmas rush, an off-season spring clean on the go and basically not enough hours to go around, I do enjoy finding solace in a novella. The perfect length to read over one or two sittings, and when you find a great novella, it contains as much action as a full length novel. Oh, and have I ever mentioned that I love Christmas? ...

Carol is a workaholic, who loves her bank job and her Blackberry equally and finds little time for anything else, including relationships. She hates Christmas and weddings and therefore is not particularly looking forward to her sister's wedding, the weekend after Christmas. Not only does she have to spend a full weekend with her entire family in rural Scotland (without a phone signal!) but she also has to spend the weekend with three of her ex boyfriends and with the snow falling heavier by the minute, she may not be able to escape any time soon.

Christmas Carol is absolutely hilarious and had me giggling throughout. Misunderstandings with exes, a Grandmother who says it like it is, a dodgy ice sculpture and an embarrassing dress-fitting session all make for a highly enjoyable read. For the chick lit fans amongst us, there's a decent amount of romance thrown into the mix too, but will any of the Men in attendance at the wedding be The One with which Carol will spend her Christmases yet to come?

For such a short book, Christmas Carol has lots of characters, all of which are brilliantly introduced and adapted, and you will no doubt fall in love with the beautifully described Scottish countryside.

This is the story of Carol, Carol who is super-efficient, and super clever, and super good at her job, and super good at avoiding her emotions and any confrontation likely to result in an emotional ending. Carol also doesn't like Christmas, in fact she is anti-Christmas, and her recently dumped status, means that attending her sister's wedding, just after Christmas, is her idea of hell.

I immediately got the feeling from Carol that she was all sharp angles, business focused and a no nonsense ball buster. Her job is top priority in her life, except when it comes to pleasing her sister Marley. Carol has a normal family life, but her crappy love life has made her the heartless worker bee she is and that's another thing that was evident from the get go, she wasn't lucky in love and she had been burned in the past. I think it kind of detracted from her character making her less likable and more likely to be pitied.

The story is set mainly in Scotland (yay) and what could be more romantic than a wedding in the snow north of the border? The thought of 3 ex-boyfriends being present? Maybe not. The story takes on a whole Ghosts of Boyfriends Past as Carol is forced to face each one of them and not only make sense of why their relationship ended but it also leads her on a mini journey of self discovery. Her attitude to change her own way of life is quite resilient until she realises that she's becomes someone who everyone sees as cold and unapproachable. Her demeanour changes though and flourishes with the freshly fallen snow, leaving the story on a warm Christmassy note.

This is a novella, so in between short story and full length book, it's perfect to while away a snowy afternoon in front of the fire (or radiator). Definitely one of my favourite reads so far with it's warm and touching storyline.

The whole family gather for a wedding in Craighorn Hall in Scotland. Amongst the people who are invited are the three ex-boyfriends to the bride's sister Carol (excellent choice of name for a Xmas book). They are Robert the rat, the groom's best man, Karl - the brides's boss and Skate, who is Carol's childhood best friend. During their stay at the hall, Carol embarks on a journey of self discovery which changes her for the better and where she finds out she doesn't have to always be perfect. She also ends up with one of her ex boyfriends, read the book and find out which one! She ends up with the best out of the three!

This is the second book I have read by Michelle Gorman, the first one was Bella Summer takes a Chance which is also a really good book. I like the author's style of writing, I found she wrote with wit and humour which regularly brought a smile to my face while reading this book. She is a very talented author and I will be reading other books already published by her.
