Three Delightful Christmas Tales from Beloved Storyteller Michelle Griep

Pour yourself a cuppa, get lost in the merriment of the season, and enjoy a Dickensian Christmas in three stories from fan favorite Michelle Griep:

12 Days at Bleakly Manor: Brought together under mysterious circumstances, Clara and Ben discover that what they’ve been striving for isn’t what ultimately matters. What matters most is what Christmas is all about . . . love.

A Tale of Two Hearts: Pleasure seeker William Barlow needs a wife immediately to gain his uncle’s inheritance, and Mina Scott is just the girl to make him look respectable—too bad she turns him down. Ought he give her a second chance?

The Old Lace Shop: Recently widowed Bella White is finally freed from the domination of the overbearing men in her life, but when she enters into a business partnership with the handsome Edmund Archer, she begins to wonder if marriage is worth a second chance.

My Thoughts

Once Upon A Dickens Christmas is my first Christmas read of the season. I was thrilled to get my hands on it. It is a compilation of three different novellas. The first two, 12 Days at Bleakly Manor and A Tale of Two Hearts came out in the previous two years so I had already read them. I chose to skip over them and went right to The Old Lace Shop.

If you are a fan of Dickens then I think you will enjoy these three stories. Michelle Griep does an excellent job in capturing the essence of Dickens writing style with a unique twist that is all her own. There is a little bit of mystery and a little bit of romance thrown in to all three novellas.

This would make a lovely gift for the book lover on your Christmas list.
