Title: Once Upon a Wish-Mas
Author: Laura Barnard
This is a standalone Christmas novella.
I love Laura’s Christmas stories and I was all settled and ready to laugh my socks off in to the new year. Well, this one isnt quite like that.
Now, don’t get me wrong, there is the occasional amusing blunder and Ruby is inappropriate and awkward as you would be. But there is so much more depth to this story.
I think it’s amazing how Laura can create such a depth of emotion and a full rounded complete story on a novella. To be able to take all the parts of a novel length story and condense it while still managing to keep the essence is fantastic.
I’m probably not explaining that very well, but the story is great. Ruby and Barclay are heartbreaking, and heartwarming, Lottie and Jessica are just gorgeous too.
A fantastic Christmas read!
