  • A fantastic holiday read!

    The Afterlife of Holly Chase was such a great read, holiday or otherwise! The synopis of the book doesn’t do it justice. There is so much to appreciate about this book. At the top of the list is the fact that it’s a reimagining of Charles’ Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, a reimaging with a twist in the form of Project Scrooge. The way in which the original story is entwined into this story, becoming central to the plot, was so unique. It made for a lovely balance between the classic and the new. I loved the premise of Holly’s afterlife so much. There is something hopeful about the idea that there are those, even unseen, that care enough to try to help others. At one point, one of the characters makes a comment about never giving up on a Scrooge, and that was really beautiful. And I loved the messages of the original were also present in this, and without any preachiness or overly saccharine platitudes. And the characters… they were so diverse and interesting. Especially interesting for me was the affinity I felt for Holly and Ethan. Normally, I don’t adore an unlikable character, much less two of them, but there was something about them that really drew me. Both of them felt less like true “bad” people than they did broken people. And that made me heart ache for them. They were each deeply flawed, but it was the paths that led them there that got to me. It created an intriguing tug-of-war between sympathy and angst for them. There were moments when I couldn’t help but ugly cry, especially as I neared the end. I loved the way it ended, even if I was sad to see it end! My recommendation: If you love a holiday read, especially a unique one, this is a fantastic one to try!

  • The Perfect Holiday Read

    I just finished this one a few days into 2021. I LOVED this book. It was so hard to put down. The heroine was beautifully imperfect and reminds us of all of life's possibilities. I love it when an author can write a story that doesn't use sex as a crutch, and don't really enjoy reading about that at all. This book stood firmly on story--a strong one that made you fall into its world and forget about the rest of the world while you were there. The characters are believable and each has their own issues to work through. You fall in love with all of them. The attention to details set each scene and make lovely pictures in your head. I didn't expect the exact outcome of the twist at the end, but it was a brilliant one. There were all these scattered, unexpected bits of happy that made the ending so much more meaningful. The author has a firm grasp on what constitutes true love in all its glorious forms. I really can't say anything negative about this book. The dialogue is spot-on, the pacing is perfect and the story is a perfect example of the classics coming to brilliant life in a more modern time. This book would make an amazing movie. It's a perfect Christmas/holiday read, especially during a time in history when the world has been thrown into such turmoil. One of the best books I've read in a long time. Oh, and I loved I was doing zero editing in my head. I've read so many books lately I had to put down due to poor editing or dialogue or flat characters. None of that here.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Awww! Lovely Christmas Tale!

    I’m not gonna lie; this book started out a little rough for me. But the more I read about Holly, the more I wanted to read! It’s a bizarre retelling, really, almost a sci-fi/ fantasy contemporary connection to A Christmas Carol (by Charles Dickens). But once you decide to drink the Kool-aid, it’s a great ride, and ends well.

    Thanks for your feedback!
