From the author of the beloved bestseller Shoe Addicts Anonymous comes a heartwarming twist on a classic tale filled with holiday cheer.
Noelle is not a fan of the holidays and to make matters worse, she is at a crossroads in her life when it seems that love and adventure are no longer possible. When she stays late at her job in a department store on a snowy Christmas Eve she accidentally gets locked in after closing. She isn’t too concerned about the prospect of spending the night in the store…until a woman appears out of nowhere and tells Noelle that she’s her guardian angel. Soon Noelle finds herself camped out in the shoe department facing several “ghosts” of Christmases past, present, and future...Will visiting the holidays of yesterday and tomorrow help Noelle see the true spirit of Christmas? And will the love she has longed for all her life be the best surprise gift of all?
I’ve not read the other books in this series but I had seen that this book was not a film and I wanted a nice short Christmas book before the end of the year.
Noelle has been spending her life avoiding adventures for so long she can’t remember what it’s like to have one! I really liked Noelle. She seems like a bit of an introvert that wants to get out there a bit more but doesn’t know how.
The idea of being locked in a department store sounds like so much fun! Like Noelle, I’d definitely be trying on all the clothes and shoes! I’ve not been shopping in so long and I do miss a day mooching around.
This book too a new twist on A Christmas carol with the shoe’s triggering memories. I really liked this. It was a good way for Beth to make it her own.
This is a cute festive story that you can easily read in an afternoon.
