Maggie refuses to stop in LA, dwelling on things over Christmas, so finally persuades to take Zoe on an all expenses paid trip of a life time to London, where Christmas is done the best! The girls have a wale of a time and manage to sprinkle love in the lives of others.
This is a short and sweet Christmas fairy tale.
The Perfect Christmas by Kate Forster is a short story, meaning that I read this within an hour. The thing about short stories is that I'm always left wanting more, wanting to know more about the characters, the situations, the lives... I don't think there has ever been a time where I've finished a short story and felt satisfied.
In The Perfect Christmas by Kate Forster, we meet Maggie and Zoe, both desperate to get away and leave LA behind for a few days. The fact that the girls decided on London had me excited, as London during Christmas is said to be a truly glorious sight. When the girls arrive and are met at their hotel by their very own personal concierge, I was made aware of Maggie's status. The hotel was luxurious, their room almost like that of a palace, and I was insanely jealous of the fact that they were able to order room service (something which I've always wanted to do)! Kate created a fabulous atmosphere during their time in London, it definitely felt Christmassy, with the lights and the shopping! The scene was really delivered to me, and I loved it.
The plot moved along very quickly, but not so quickly that I didn't have chance to enjoy it, which I did. The idea of having Holly, the concierge, involved in the plot was great, and it added that gorgeous spark of romance to the story, which we all adore at Christmas! There was a little bit of meddling on Maggie and Zoe's part, and of course best-friend banter, which was entertaining to say the least. The whole tone of the short story was jovial, festive and endlessly enjoyable.Read more ›
I loved the two main characters. Maggie is married to Will and has a step son who is waiting for a heart transplant. They usually spend Christmas at home together and Maggie is shocked when Will announces that they are off to Mexico for Christmas this year, without Maggie.
Zoe is Maggies friend and manager. They haven't seen eachother in a couple of months, but when Maggie hears about Wills plans she heads straight over to see Zoe. With neither having any plans they decide that they will escape all the madness and head to London. Zoe is always on the go working and it is Maggies intention for her to stop for a few days.
We follow them over to London where they check into The Dorchester hotel and the fun begins. Here we meet Holly who is assigned to look after them during their stay. Maggie spots that Holly has a, how shall I say....soft spot for Jack who is the hotel manager, and decides to take it upon herself to play Cupid. The rest of the story follows their trips out, and also their attempt to bring Holly and Jack together.
I really enjoyed this novella and read it all in one sitting. The characters are bought to life very quickly and I felt able to connect with them. The story felt like a great adventure which made me laugh and smirk almost all the way through. Maggie and Zoe are very likeable and I really wanted them to go out and have fun, so was willing them on. It was a bit like hanging out with a couple of friends.Read more ›
