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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
