Today I share my review for the novella Christmas Spirit by Nicola May. This is an enjoyable one that will help get you into the Christmas Spirit! There is also an international giveaway going on!
It’s two days before Christmas – and Evie Harris finds herself both manless and jobless. After a chance encounter with handsome Greg (and egged on by her toy-boy-eating friend, Bea) she agrees to work at a homeless shelter on Christmas Day.
Striking up an unlikely friendship with homeless Yves, Evie begins an unwitting journey of spiritual awakening, all set against the sparkling winter backdrop of London landmarks.
A New Year’s Eve revelation is on its way . . . but will it leave Evie with a happy heart, or will she allow the pre-Christmas past to dictate her future?

This was a quick read to get you into the spirit of Christmas! Christmas can be such a crazy time and we can forget what the true meaning of Christmas is about: Helping others. This story focuses on the helping of others while helping Evie to grow herself. She starts off the story without a job and left by her boyfriend. She feels pity for herself, but the invite to volunteer at a homeless shelter was just what she needed. (And yeah, ok, Greg is nice to look at too!)
Evie meets a homeless man Yves who she helps and in return he helps her! This is a great short story that has a happy ending. This will be sure to help you get into the Christmas spirit!
