My thoughts...
What a beautiful short read. Carole Matthews unfailingly delivers uplifting books that leave you wanting more and this short story was no exception.

It's the festive season and Hannah is just not feeling it. Everything is an effort. Last year she was suddenly, without notice, dumped after spending a wonderful New Years Eve with Mitchell.  
She finds herself drawn back to a place that had happy memories she'd shared with Mitchell, although this time you can feel the sadness enveloping her as he begins a painful journey reliving those memories. Ending when she is greeted by Father Christmas. Does he grant her wish, to regain those happy memories? 

You'll have to read it for yourself to find out but you won't be disappointed - highly recommend you grab a coffee and settle down for a little bit of Christmas magic.


I gave this book 5/5 stars
