ABOUT THIS BOOK
She's out to save her town from a real-life Scrooge...
The small town of Miller’s Point is known across the country for their annual Dickensian Christmas festival. When the celebration is threatened by Clark Woodward, a miserly, big-city businessman, Kate Buckner steps up to save her hometown, their traditions, and her favorite holiday. But, along the way, she realizes that the man she’s trying to protect her town from might need some rescuing of his own.
With a lot of heart and a little Christmas magic, Kate is convinced she can teach Clark to love her favorite holiday. But can such different people learn to open up and love each other?
Like a Hallmark movie on the page, THE CHRISTMAS COMPANY by Alys Murray is a sweet romance that really brings the magic of Christmas to life.
To Kate Buckner, the town of Miller Point and its inhabitants is the family that she never had, and working for The Christmas Company which runs the annual Dickensian Christmas festival is everything she dreamed of as a child. So when Kate and the town discover that The Christmas Company is being shut down effective immediately and that a lot of families are going to be struggling because of this, Kate is not willing to take it lying down. She wants to be angry at the cause of all of their problems, Clark Woodward, but as she spends a little time with him, Kate recognises a lost man who has buried his emotions deep inside. If only Kate could show him how important Christmas is for this town, then maybe he would allow them to keep their festival. So Kate decides, with the help of her friends, to make Clark love Christmas again but what she doesn't expect is to feel a hitch in her heart when he is around her. Can the magic of the season bring these two souls together or will the magic be lost on someone who has left Christmas in his past?
THE CHRISTMAS COMPANY by Alys Murray puts the sweet into sweetheart romance and sometimes that is just what you need. The characters have had their own troubled pasts but have dealt with their heartache in very different ways. The setting and the whole Dickens vibe worked well for me as I am a huge fan of A Christmas Carol so I could picture it all perfectly as I read each page. Overall, THE CHRISTMAS COMPANY by Alys Murray is a delightful read that is sure to be a huge hit with Hallmark fans everywhere.
Alys Murray was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, and will always be a southern girl at heart. A graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, she travels with her fiancé as much as she can and writes as many love stories as she can.
