I wanted to read cute adorable stories in the Christmas week, hence downloaded all the Christmas books from Hallmark Publishing.

This is a light fluffy read where love happens in a day, where transformation of the heart occurs over a few hours, and the whole town becomes Dickensian overnight.

Kate is the employee of the Christmas company and the entire town of Miller’s Point celebrates Christmas enacting Charles Dickens story, A Christmas Carol. And enter scrooge Clark who wants to shut the company and save his dollars. Kate then goes about to make him believe in the magic and hope of Christmas and fall in love with it

The book by Alys Murray has all the parts which complete a Christmas book, there was hope, joy, love, falling in river, being saved by the hero, making cookies, dressing the tree, mistletoe, and the town celebrating a 1800s style Christmas.

It was a good story with Christmas causing the main characters to fall in love. But where I fell in love with the story was when the entire town comes together to sing the carols and especially Silent Night. The whole scene was magical to imagine. I had tears coursing down my cheeks. There is something ethereal about that scene which causes my emotions to overflow as tears even now when I think about it.


I received a digital copy from NetGalley and publisher Hallmark Publishing, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!!

Alys Murray was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, and will always be a southern girl at heart. A graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, she travels with her fiancé as much as she can and writes as many love stories as she can.

The small town of Miller’s Point is known across the country for their annual Dickensian Christmas festival. When the celebration is threatened by Clark Woodward, a miserly, big-city businessman, Kate Buckner steps up to save her hometown, their traditions, and her favorite holiday. But, along the way, she realizes that the man she’s trying to protect her town from might need some rescuing of his own.

With a lot of heart and a little Christmas magic, Kate is convinced she can teach Clark to love her favorite holiday. But can such different people learn to open up and love each other?
