Making Christmas Magic by Rachel Carrington is a charming novella about a woman receiving a much-needed Christmas miracle. When Ainsley meets handsome Noah, a stranger to her small town, she becomes instantly guarded. The house he inherited from his deceased uncle will soon go into foreclosure and he plans on selling it to the first bidder. What his uncle did not tell Noah is that he had promised Ainsley that she could pay what she could afford to purchase it…which isn’t much. Ainsley operates an orphanage in the house and there are twelve children who will lose their home, which would be devastating for them since they have lost so much in life already. She doesn’t know what to do, but she decides to go on with the famous Christmas pageant she orchestrates every year and think about this problem after the holidays. Noah admires her determination and thinks of a way to fix the problem…along with falling in love.
What I like about Making Christmas Magic by Rachel Carrington is that it’s short enough to fill a cold evening whilst drinking hot chocolate, while being a clean romance full of Christmas spirit. Rachel Carrington is a talented writer who knows about pacing; we find out more about Noah as the story progresses, and he isn’t the one-dimensional selfish playboy we thought he was, but a man with many talents and virtues. We are entertained with many pleasant surprises and the ending is quite satisfying. A definite feel-good story that I recommend diving into.
