A magical, modern-day Christmas Carol
Digital designer Emma Wallace is finally poised for her big break: kitchenware giant Johnson Cookware is looking to rebrand – and with Christmas around the corner, Emma’s long-held philosophy of work-before-play may just give her the edge she needs to win the account.
The only peppermint twist in her Scrooge-worthy plan? She’s promised her ever-patient, architect boyfriend Sam Cole that after spending the last three Christmases in her office instead of in his arms, she’ll make this holiday just about the two of them. But as Christmas Eve draws near and the deadline crunch threatens her promise to Sam, Emma finds herself visited by three boyfriend “ghosts” of Christmases past, who come bearing the gift of hindsight.
Will showing Emma her past romantic failures, as well as her early courtship with Sam, help her to see the path to true happiness in time to save her future?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Boyfriends of Christmas Past is a story loosely based on Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol with a twist. Emma is a workaholic and could never keep a relationship. All of her past boyfriends ended the relationship because her priorities were not with them. As the years pass and Emma gets older, her need to be the best at her job puts her current relationship with Sam in jepardy. Sam was a great guy; very patient and understanding however, he too, has limits. And when the final nail is hammered in, Emma will have to fight if she truly ants to have a future with Sam.
Emma is visited by a few of her past boyfriends. It is these men that help her to see the light. Of course Emma is driven by a fatherless childhood and a mother struggling to makes ends meet. Emma doesn’t want to ever depend on any man for financial security.
I very much enjoyed how this version of the story played out. It was fun and witty and the author’s version of the classic Scrooge was one I hadn’t read before. I would definitely read more from this author.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
