A Lover of Books

‘The Christmas List’ by Chrissie Manby

Christmas List

I loved the sound of ‘The Christmas List’ and was really interested in reviewing it.  Chrissie Manby kindly sent me a copy of her new novella when it was ready.

As children, Milly Arnold and her sisters always made a Christmas list on the 1st of December which was then sent off to Santa via the chimney, a family tradition continued by her married sister.  Milly who has always loved Christmas is especially looking forward to it this year, but things change within minutes when she unexpectedly gets dumped.

The last thing Milly wants to do on the 1st of December is go to her elder sister’s house for lunch, but she doesn’t really have a choice.  When her nephews sit down to write out their Christmas lists they insist that she also does one.  Milly doesn’t really expect to get any of her requests, but just goes along with it.  However, things can work in mysterious ways.  Will Milly find the happiness she truly deserves?

I really enjoyed ‘The Christmas List’.  Though predictable in places this was a magical little read.  I recommend getting a copy of this novella.  It’s bound to get you in the mood for Christmas.

I hope Chrissie Manby writes more novellas like this.

I give this book 4 out of 5.
