I always try and post about new upcoming cover reveals, author chats, and other literary related events and I know a lot of you are out there looking for new for your holiday reading lists!
So I thought this sounded like a cheeky book to add to your holiday reading!
Michele Gorman’s Christmas Carol is coming down the chimney on October 24th!
Gorman is also the author of the hilarious chick lit series, Single in the City.
This latest novella is a wickedly funny re-imagining of Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. Here is a summary of the novella:
One winter wedding, two happy couples, three ex-boyfriends… And a very uncomfortable weekend.
Carol hates Christmas. Being recently dumped, she’s not crazy about weddings either. So her sister Marley’s nuptials, over the Christmas weekend, are making her positively Scrooge-like.
When she arrives for the weekend at the stately home in rural Scotland to find her three ex-boyfriends in attendance, Carol has no choice but to face her ghosts to discover what really happened in those relationships, learning a lot about herself in the process. As the snow falls outside and the fire crackles in the hearth, might one of the wedding guests become the harbinger of Christmases to come?
Available globally in paperback and eBook at these fine locations:
