Christmas Carol - Michele Gorman

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?
If you're like me you will get that into a book it basically becomes real life, well in a sense haha. I fell into Christmas Carol with a thud and basically got covered in family warmth, love and snow.
I adored this book, it is extremely funny and has been written extremely well. It's fast, full and well lovely. The plot is really good and it has the brilliant addition of little sub plots that have you cringing with ex-boyfriend embarrassment and also heartache. I adored every single character in the book. Honestly I did, there is a way about then that strikes you as good people, even the dicks! My favourite being Carol. She has one amazing sense of humour and I adored seeing her flourish throughout the book to become the person you know she actually is.
I will be keeping an eye out for more of Michele Gorman's work after this.
Full of Christmas love, joy, weddings, family, snow and ex's. Wonderful.
