Spirits Of Christmas by Nicky Wells

‘At one time, up-and-coming rock singer Jude had it all: a great band, a platinum record, a loving girlfriend. This Christmas, however, he is well down the road towards spontaneous self-destruction.

Unwitting at first, Jude has progressively alienated his band and driven away the love of his life. Tonight, the night before Christmas Eve, he has broken the final taboo during a disastrous gig. Yet Jude doesn’t see how badly his life has derailed, not until a ghostly procession of legends passes through his bedroom with a series of vivid and powerful wake-up calls.

Will the Spirits help Jude put the friendship, love, and rock music back into his Christmas?

Spirits of Christmas is a modern-day rock’n’roll adaption of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol. This novella will enchant romance readers, rock lovers, fans of ghost stories, and everybody who adores the festive season.’

I was sent this novella by Nicky, so I would like to say thank you to Nicky for asking me to review Spirits Of Christmas for her.

What a truly charming little story this was. Straight from the off we are thrown in at the deep end and Jude is arguing with his fellow band mates. This ends in the band breaking up, to top it off when Jude gets home he realises that his girlfriend Carrie has left him.

That night Jude is visited by ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. All of which show him how badly he has treated those around him and how his life could turn out if he doesn’t mend his ways, fast.

I thoroughly enjoyed this, I’m a huge Christmas lover and this ticks all the right boxes for me. Who doesn’t love a bit of Christmas magic?

It was modern, clever, fun and full of festive cheer.
