Sarah’s doing great. Okay, her dreams might still be totally bananas but real life is definitely back on track. She’s got a fantastic job, amazing friends and plans to spend all Christmas wrapped up with Brett, her handsome boyfriend. But after another night of increasingly bizarre dreams, Sarah wakes to find her housemate suddenly announcing she’s moving out. And later that day Brett begins to act strangely. He’s clearly hiding something – but what?
It seems to be becoming something of a annual tradition now for Giovanna Fletcher to release a short christmas story based on one of her recently published novels. Dream A Little Christmas Dream is her second short story (with Christmas with Billy & Me being the first, which I reviewed last year!) This story is based on her recent novel Dream A Little Dream (which I have also reviewed). The story is very short and really easy to read but very engaging nonetheless!
I love the characters in this story, and it’s nice to catch up with them again, even for a short while. The plot is simple but effective, even if the surprise at the end is quiet easy to guess (but I wouldn’t want it any other way!) I also love how festive it is – as a reader you can really get into the christmas spirit with this story, which is just what I wanted.
This story is short (duh!) and didn’t take me long to read at all, but that may also have something to do with how good it is. Giovanna has such an easy and enchanting writing style, and I always feel completely immersed in the worlds she creates. What a lovely way to spend this busy christmas period than to curl up with a festive book, if for only a brief while!
