In Christmas Carol by Michele Gorman, Carol is not a fan of Christmas. So, when she has to attend her sister Marley’s wedding over the Christmas weekend, she tries her best to be happy. This becomes pretty difficult when she finds out that her three ex-boyfriends are also going to the wedding and spending the weekend with her family. Not really having the option of avoiding all three of them, Carol soon discovers what went wrong in each of her relationships. In the process, she surprisingly learns a lot about herself. Because of these realizations, she just might allow herself to find happiness.
I absolutely loved Christmas Carol. As a huge fan of chick lit books, I was pleasantly surprised in the uniqueness of this one. Carol, the protagonist, discovers who she is and learns about how she needs to change in order to be happy, making her a very dynamic character; you don’t always see this in chick lit books, so it was refreshing. I also enjoy the concept of learning about yourself as you learn more about your past relationships. I think this is something that almost anyone can relate to. Seeing Carol interact with each of her exes is both amusing and heartwarming. You’ll wonder who she will end up with, and it will keep you guessing right until the last chapter. With a very entertaining and unpredictable plot, a dynamic main character, relatable experiences, and laugh-out-loud humor, this is a must-read. I am now a big fan of Michele Gorman, and I cannot wait to read the rest of her books.
