When Serenity Holland proposes to her long-time boyfriend Jeremy, she’s certain ‘forever’ is a perfect fit. As the wedding train steams forward, though, Serenity starts to wonder if they really are an ideal match. From a crusty old ring to a dilapidated house she’s left to renovate on her own – not to mention the appearance of Jeremy’s clingy ex-fiancée – engagement feels more like disengagement.

Even worse, wedding planning’s like a bad hangover as Serenity juggles the wishes of family and friends with her bossy mother-in-law-to-be, resulting in a Frankenwedding nothing like the simple ceremony she envisioned.

Can Serenity knit her relationship back together and fashion a celebration that suits, or will ‘I do’ become ‘I don’t’?

Last Christmas By Talli Roland

Last Christmas‘Last Christmas’ is a short Christmas ebook by Talli Roland.

Eager to banish the ghost of Christmas past – when her boyfriend dumped her on the streets of Paris – Lucy is determined to make this the best Christmas ever. She rallies friends and family for an epic celebration that just happens to fall on the same day as her ex’s festive wedding. Furious at how she’s been treated, Lucy can’t help relishing the party v wedding smackdown.

But when the wedding is threatened and only Lucy can help, can she find the spirit inside to save the day, or will this Christmas be even more disastrous than the last?

As I sat on a cold bus, one freezing morning, I snuggled up with Talli Roland’s short festive novella ‘Last Christmas’ and as I sped through each chapter, I felt a warmth flow through my freezing limbs as I enjoyed this Christmas tale.

Lucy is the lead character of the story and is still reeling from the heartache of last Christmas when she poured her heart out to her ex-boyfriend, only to have it thrown back in her face. Fast forward a year later, Lucy is still heartbroken whilst her ex boyfriend Robert is eagerly planning his wedding for Christmas Day. Lucy’s friend and work colleague Mimi, decides enough is enough that they will throw a Christmas party that will rival the wedding reception and as the days loom closer to the party and the wedding, Lucy wonders whether she will regret the party.

Lucy is a lovely character, that I immediately warmed to, I liked her bubbly personality and sweet nature. I particularly liked how excited she was about her upcoming party and how she secretly enjoyed her guest list rivalling that of her ex’s wedding, I thought she was such fun and I enjoyed joining her as she prepared for the celebrations.

Mimi, Lucy’s outspoken friend was a great character, blunt and witty, she pushed Lucy into feeling more confident about herself and helped her arrange the perfect Christmas party with her infectious festive spirit, it was hard not to get into the party mood with these two ladies and with the addition of the handsome and charming James, a perfect gentleman, it was easy to consume this story in one sitting.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this fresh story, fun and lively from the first page, ‘Last Christmas’ is a captivating and merry tale that will take definitely entertain you on a winter evening.

You can buy Last Christmas from Amazon.
