Unwitting at first, Jude has progressively alienated his band and driven away the love of his life. Tonight, the night before Christmas Eve, he has broken the final taboo during a disastrous gig. Yet Jude doesn’t see how badly his life has derailed, not until a ghostly procession of legends passes through his bedroom with a series of vivid and powerful wake-up calls.
Will the Spirits help Jude put the friendship, love, and rock music back into his Christmas?
Spirits of Christmas is a modern-day rock’n’roll adaption of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol. This novella will enchant romance readers, rock lovers, fans of ghost stories, and everybody who adores the festive season.
My Book Review:
With the Christmas holiday season right around the corner, author Nicky Wells gives her readers an early Christmas present with the entertaining novella, Spirits of Christmas: A Rock'n'Roll Christmas Carol. In true Nicky "Rock Chick" Wells style, she weaves a fun story that is a contemporary version of the classic Charles Dicken novel, A Christmas Carol, but with a rock'n'roll theme.
Jude Shaw is an up-and-coming rock star with the British rock group, The Blood Roses. When the band hits some hard times, Jude starts fighting with his band mates, accusing them of being the cause of their downfall. With his life in a downward spiral, Jude is on the verge of losing everything, and on Christmas Eve he finds himself alone. But in true Dickens fashion, Jude is visited by a trio of rock legend spirits who are sent to give him a dose of harsh reality, and make him see the errors of his ways, and the need to change his life before it is too late.
Spirits of Christmas is a festive Christmas novella that will get you ready for the holiday season. Author Nicky Wells sprinkles her rock'n'roll stardust on the classic Dickens story and makes it a fun and entertaining read. This story reminds me of the Vanessa Williams movie, A Diva's Christmas Carol, and as I was reading, I couldn't help but smile at the similarities between this novella and the movie, as both provide a rockin' good time! So if you want to start the holiday season early, Spirits of Christmas is a lighthearted quick read that will get you in the mood for all the festive hoopla that comes with the Christmas holiday season!
Rock On Nicky!
