Spirits of Christmas by Nicky Wells

Nicky’s Rock and Roll Xmas Promo Party!!!
20th December 2014!

Fairy Tale in New York by Nicky Wells

What They Say:

New York. A restaurant near Park Avenue. It’s early evening, and dusk is falling. So is the snow. Jude and Carrie are only killing time while they wait for their flight to London. They don’t know yet that their life will never be the same.

When rock star Jude gets stranded in New York with his family on Christmas Eve, he has no idea that he is setting in motion a chain of events that will turn their Christmas into the most magical one yet…

No good deed goes unpunished, or so it seems to Jude and Carrie on the morning of the twenty-fourth of December. The previous day, they gave up their London-bound flights to someone in crisis. And now, a spectacular whiteout is grounding all planes, and Jude, Carrie, and baby Maya are stuck far from home.

Tired, hungry, and just a little panicked, Jude loads his family into a cab and returns to their hotel. But there’s no room at the inn, and not even a platinum credit card will make a difference. Snow is falling heavily, and the family is facing a very bleak night indeed.

How do you celebrate Christmas with no place to stay, no food, and no presents? Join Jude, Carrie, Maya and a cast of colourful characters in this fairy tale story of Yuletide in New York.

Fairy Tale in New York is now available in Kindle and paperback editions from all Amazon domains, including:

Spirits Of Christmas by Nicky Wells

What They Say:

Spirits of Christmas: A Rock’n’Roll Christmas Carol

At one time, up-and-coming rock singer Jude had it all: a great band, a platinum record, a loving girlfriend. This Christmas, however, he is well down the road towards spontaneous self-destruction.

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.

What I Say:

I would like to thank Brooks Cottage Books and author Nicky Wells for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Jude is the lead singer of The Blood Roses but all is not well in the rock band.  Jude has turned into an ass and is putting on the big 'I Am' act as well as neglecting his girlfriend Carrie.

In this story Nicky retells A Christmas Carol in a Rock Star way.  It's  brilliantly written and really enjoyable.  It's a great festive read and I found myself wanting to watch A Muppets Christmas Carol again (sorry but this really is my favourite version of A Christmas Carol).

Jude is basically a nice guy who has let the bright lights of stardom blind him to what is important in his life.  I loved how the book flows never stretching out scenes and leaving you guessing  who the ghost of past, presence and fu (future) as it hasn't been written yet, are.

I found myself liking Jude even though at the beginning he really isn't a nice person.

I love Nicky's books and I can't wait for her next one.
