A short story to curl up with this Christmas!

This year, it’s time for A Christmas Carole…

Carole is a workaholic so dedicated to her job at a 24/7 rolling news TV station, that she plans to work all over Christmas and New Year too. Same as she does every other year. But then when you're long -term single and married to your job, she thinks, what else is there to do?

But a midnight visit from the ghost of Christmases past, present and future soon makes her look at her life in a whole new way…

Bestselling author Claudia Carroll brings her trademark sparkle to this modern re-telling of A Christmas Carol, perfect for your Christmas treat this year!

‘Full of warmth, humour and emotion . . . I guarantee you’ll love it’ Melissa Hill
