My pal and fellow novelist Lou Aguilar brings us a new novella just in time for the Yuletide season ‘The Christmas Spirit‘ to bring lots of holiday cheer.
From the summary,
A jaded women’s magazine writer becomes obsessed with the dynamic lighthouse keeper who rescued her at sea just before Christmas then mysteriously vanished. She sets out to write a story on him, much to her rich fiancé’s displeasure and the Coast Guard’s discouragement. The deeper she delves into the mystery, the more she uncovers a romantic Christmas magic she never imagined but will take all her courage to embrace.
I enjoyed this story a great deal. It is a fun, Christmas time novella that has good characters trying to navigate their lives in the context of the holidays. It has romance, mystery, and takes a good look at the things that make up our life. Without giving too much away, I liked his message of not settling or compromising on your life. That is a very timely message for 2020.
Christmas is usually when we evaluate our lives as the year comes to a close and Lou gives a good read to provide a break from the nonstop craziness that came at us this year.
