Christmas Spirt by Nicola May ** Blog Tour Review & Giveaway**

I am delighted to be featuring a novella by Nicola May on the blog today. It is called Christmas Spirit and has a real festive feel. Details on how to enter a great International Giveaway are at the foot of this post.



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?


My Thoughts
If you are looking for a short, festive read which will have a message within the story in keeping with this time of the year, I am sure that Nicola May's Christmas Spirit will tick all the boxes. It has some great characters who are down to earth and relatable, and in addition there is a touch of Christmas magic in the air.

    In Evie, Nicola has created a character who lacks self-esteem and who does not really believe in herself. She has been badly let down and is at her most vulnerable. Through events in the story, she learns to look outside her own troubles and the message within the story is ultimately one of love and hope - perfect for the Christmas period. I also loved the humour within the story. Evie's friendship with Beatrice and the world she meets in the community centre stops the story from becoming overly sentimental and injects a dose of realism into the story. 

In short: A short story packed with the sentiments of the festive season.
