Read full description of the books Christmas Spirits:A VERY short story. Felt much shorter than Kurland's other short stories. But that was fine with me. I finished it quickly. I do wish that she would have had it take place over at least a couple weeks though. I never think it's very believable when people fall in love in only about 2 days and then literally get engaged and start planning their future. I mean, come on. A week ago, you didn't even know this guy. Come on.
But other than that, I did like this sweet story. Two people, both current day, alone in an inn in Scotland, just before Christmas. Their ghost, match-making ancestors (Ambrose, Hugh and Fulbert) pair them up and do everything in their ghostly powers to make sure they are alone at the inn together, and that they can't really leave. It was nice to finally find out how Gideon and Megan got together, since I've been reading about them in so many of the dePiaget and MacLeod books now. Too bad it was so short though. I like that I've read almost all of both of their siblings books by this point though. Gideon's brother is Stephen, who married Peaches. Megan's sisters are Jennifer (who married Nicholas) and Victoria, who I know marries Connor, but theirs is the only story I haven't read yet. That always helps to put a short story in context though and to help it feel not so short. I wasn't being introduced to these characters for the very first time. I already knew quite a bit about them and their families, so that helped.
Anyway, it was a cute story. Not the most amazing romance ever, but definitely enjoyable light reading.
Read information about the authorLynn began her writing career at the tender age of five with a series of illustrated novellas entitled Clinton’s Troubles in which the compelling hero found himself in all sorts of . . . well, trouble. She was living in Hawaii at the time and the scope for her imagination (poisoned fish, tropical cliffs, large spiders) was great and poor Clinton bore the brunt of it. After returning to the mainland, her writing gave way to training in classical music and Clinton, who had been felled with arrows, eaten by fish and sent tumbling off cars, was put aside for operatic heroes in tights.
Somehow during high school, in between bouts of Verdi and Rossini, she managed to find time to submerge herself in equal parts Tolkien, Barbara Cartland and Mad Magazine. During college, a chance encounter with a large library stack of romances left her hooked, gave her the courage to put pen to paper herself, and finally satisfied that need for a little bit of fantasy with a whole lot of romance!
