One Magical Christmas – Berni Stevens

Christmas magic doesn’t really exist – does it? 
When Annie Berry collides with Nik Knoll in a car park on the day of her sister’s wedding, it feels like all of Nik’s Christmases have come at once. Annie seems like just the sort of woman he’d like to get to know, and the chance nature of their encounter is almost like, well … Christmas magic.

But Nik has a secret, and he has to be sure that he can trust Annie before he tells her. The problem is that this secret has a Christmas deadline, and time is running out …



My review

This was such a fun story. It was full of little jokes and I liked the way people behaved. Of course, there has to be a villain sometimes, even in the most beautiful love story and this added a bit of suspense as well.

What is Christmas without magic? It will not surprise you then that the author has inserted plenty. Although it was clear where the story was headed, I still was under its spell.

A lovely novella to receive or give as a gift to be put under the Christmas tree. 5 stars.

Thank you, Berni Stevens and Choc Lit.
