Back Cover Blurb:

It's official - for Juliette Connolly Christmas is a bust and she's definitely not in the Christmas spirit. She's been dumped by her boyfriend and replaced by a younger model. Then a clause in her contract means she and a mysterious colleague have to work over Christmas. But there's much more to Andrew Campbell than meets the eye. Especially when it turns out he's the Scottish Laird of the haunted house they're filming in.

And it seems like there's magic in the air in the remote snow-filled setting. The local village contains a cast of Christmas characters and even though the boiler in the drafty house is broken the temperature is definitely rising.

Maybe Andrew and Juliette are about to be sprinkled with a little Christmas fairy dust?

My Review:

What a chillingly brilliant Christmas novella. Wilson had me on my toes throughout. I couldn’t believe the twists and turns that she worked into this story. She set the scene perfectly in this Scottish house perfectly and made it into a Christmas that I’ll never forget. Wilson not only made me laugh with the absurdly realistic situations her characters found themselves in, she also engaged my emotions and had chills running down my spine with her absolutely original storyline.

I quite enjoyed getting to know the characters as they got to know one another. Going from a strictly professional relationship to a much more personal one not only increased the relationship between the characters themselves but gave readers an inside peek at who these two are. By taking this interesting approach to their development Wilson gives her readers a very interesting look at who her main characters are, both inside and out. The supporting cast in this novel was virtually non-existent, but this worked very well for the story. The main characters are more than strong enough to carry it on their own.

I loved this story. It was hilarious & personal all at the same time. The premise was original and the writing inspired.
