A Christmas Miracle in July by R.M. Gauthier
Christmas – Bah humbug! I am not a fan of the most wonderful time of the year. All the good tidings and cheer. All the tinsel and bows and my all-time favorite – the Elf on a Shelf. So when Jack enters Christmas Town and wants to vomit, I said to myself – now there’s a man I can exchange coal with.
Jack Frost aka Jack Bennett and I enjoy a few chapters releasing our inner Grinch when suddenly, his heart grew 3 sizes and he left me for a chick who wears snowman sweaters. No. I do not want to build a snowman Anna…go away!
Charlotte Rose is as sweet as a gingerbread man and as innocent as a child snuggled in bed waiting on Old Saint Nick. Jack is smitten as a kitten. So much that he stupidly decides to tell her the real reason he’s in Christmas Town and it sure as shit ain’t for the yuletide carol.
Honesty. Bad move Jack. Everyone knows there is no better time to lie than Christmas. It’s best to keep Aunt Betty’s liposuction and Uncle Bill’s lip lock to yourself but Jack doesn’t want to be on the naughty list and like a partridge in a pear tree, he chirps the truth.
At this point in the story, all I have to say is that you did it again R.M. Gauthier. Like being blindfolded on the rooftop and hit by Santa’s sleigh – I did not see it coming. But having read her other books, I guess I really should have. Who was I kidding thinking this would be a simple Christmas love story from the author of Control?
But don’t put away that mistletoe just yet. A Christmas Miracle in July will have you “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “Dashing Through the Snow” with an ending that is sure to please even a Scrooge like me. Bah Humbug!
