While searching for Christmas Books I came across a book by Nora Roberts called “Christmas Magic”.
The interesting thing was it was only published in the U.K. I was immediately intrigued and found a used one on Amazon to order. When it arrived I laughed a little, it’s two stories in one book, and both were originally published in the mid-80′s. The first one is “All I want for Christmas”
Here’s the Goodreads synopsis:
“Identical six-year-old twins Zeke and Zach wished for only one gift from Santa this year: a new mum! But convincing their love-wary dad that their new music teacher, Miss Davis, was his destiny and sent by Santa wasn’t as easy as they’d hoped… “
It was an easy, enjoyable, fairy-tale read and one that had me wondering; it seemed a little familiar. After some research I quickly found that “All I want for Christmas” was also in the Nora Roberts book “The Gift” (along with “Home for Christmas”).
While “All I want for Christmas” was more of a novella it was still an enjoyable one. A good story to read by the fire with a cup of cocoa . And as long as you keep the “fairy-tale” part in mind I’ll give it 4.5cups. I’ve started the second story, “This Magic Moment” and will have that review for you next week.
