NO CHRISTMAS LIKE THE PRESENT BY SIERRA DONOVAN

THE BLURB
Lindsay Miller is knee-deep in Christmas cards and homemade fudge, but she’s never felt more like a Grinch. Why can’t Christmas be full of magic, like in her favorite movie, A Christmas Carol. . .?

. . .Enter Fred, a sexy and eccentric stranger who arrives at Lindsay’s door out of the blue. Dressed like he just stepped out of a Dickens novel, complete with British accent, Fred claims he’s a Messenger, sent from “Headquarters” to help her discover the joy of Christmas. But is Fred an angel from above–or just stone cold crazy?

Fred’s used to dealing with skeptics. Telling a stranger you’ve been ordered to inspire holiday cheer is a tough sell. But there’s a further complication. Fred’s mission is to help Lindsay right the wrongs from her past that have been holding her back. But somehow along the way, they’ve become wildly attracted to each other–and falling in love is not part of the plan. Fred only has ‘til the stroke of midnight on Christmas Eve to guide Lindsay to the magical future she deserves–even if it’s a future without him. . .

WHAT I SAY
I did enjoy this book but i got to say i was not sure what Fred was you will have see for your self

To me this book a modern take on the christmas carol which i like

Lindsay did not like christmas much but every year she makes fudge and sends lots of cards to people she only talks to once a year
I get the feeling that something was stopping her from liking christmas but what or who ?

We do get to hear more about it as the book goes on
She a lovely girl but she not got much of a life she just goes to work and then back home each day she did not mix with other very much
She got a few friends but like being by herself

One day she was watching her favourite film a christmas carol on tv
There a bang on the door it was Fred was he a ghost ? A angel? Or was he real what do you think?

I just loved him he got to help Lindsay find her love for christmas can he do that ?

He was just such a warm character i like how he got her to do things she did her cards, put the tree up it was so nice to hear all about it she was so not going to do any of this she hated christmas

He was so good at cooking his fudge was better than her what did he do different to her
They seem to have a lot of fun together we get to see a softer side to Lindsay she a great girl but i felt her past was holding her back

Fred head office wanted him to help her did he or did he not ?
Was he in her mind i not sure but I enjoy reading about all the christmas fun they had together both characters were very likeable and fun

The writing style is so easy to follow the story just follows and you just flow with it
I did like Fred mission but it goes a bit wrong i think or did it they seem to be very attracted to each other

The book so magical it was very through provoking story
The description are so well written you could see the plot in your mind
The book brings together people it shows us love, trust and show us how to be honest with each other it about finding love and happiness it got a strong emphasis on christmas being time for family and loved ones it about making memories every little one count

The story got laughter a few surprises and some very heartwarming moments
It just a magical christmas read
4 stars
I like to thank you net galley for letting me read and review
