My review of A Christmas Gift
A Christmas Gift is a wonderful, cosy, romantic read. It makes you feel good and it was such a treat to curl up in my favourite chair to read this story. It's a beautiful modern day romance set at Christmas and I loved it.
Georgine France is in a spot of trouble. Her ex boyfriend, Aidan, has left her with mounting debts and she is struggling to pay them. Ever cheerful and resourceful, Georgine throws herself into work at the local college as they prepare for their Christmas production. Now, Georgine is a fabulous character There is so much to like about her. She is clever, resourceful, giving and cares about her local community. I couldn't help but like her.
We then have Joe Blackthorne, who comes into her life as the new assistant director and oh my, I fell in love with him. Here is a man who on the surface appears to have it all, but he too has his own secrets. His storyline I found quite emotional, and I think Ms Moorcroft got his back story spot on. There is an obvious attraction between Joe and Georgine that simply fizzled on the page. I loved their interactions.
Although a beautiful winter romance, this book does touch upon serious issues, like those of financial debts. This is incredibly relevant to the world we live in today, with food banks, and austeerity. This issue was dealt with gently and with compassion and understanding. It's a book for our modern times.
A Christmas Gift is the perfect read for those cold winter nights. It restores your faith in humanity as you read about this close knit village community. A pure joy to read.
