This is a short novella with Artemis having a second chance after making a mistake in his past and losing his love. His Grandma and a little magic make it possible to go back and make things right. It's a sweet,magical Christmas story told through Artemis's eyes. It's well written,fast paced and I enjoyed reading.

I was thrilled with this book and that says a lot for me since I am not a romance reader. But this book is about an attempt to rectify that thing that was done when you were not thinking straight. Who cannot identify with that and wish for a second chance? Great book!

Magical Christmas Do-Over

What a fun little Christmas short story! It's hard to call truly it a Christmas story, though, because while it takes place at Christmas time, there are only just a few references to it. There are no holiday traditions or anything like that in the book. However, it is the backdrop of a miracle of sorts. The hero of the story, Artie, made a disastrous choice 5 years ago that he is still paying for. Have you ever wanted a do-over in life? If so, this book may appeal to you

This was an entertaining and enthralling short story about second chances.
It is one long chapter, and we are only in the mind of the main protagonist, Artemis Hamilton. When Art gets a call one evening to meet his ex, he drops everything and goes to her. He has always regretted their past and wishes he could make amends.
There is a very well-developed and intricate back story given, and the book certainly doesn’t feel as if it is only 46 pages. It felt like a full-blown novel; I was very impress

Artemis makes a mistake, and drives away the women he's loved all his life. Grandma shows up, and give him a glimpse of the future, along with an opportunity to go back in time and make things right. Will he make different decisions this time? Will he and Devona find their happily every after? And just who is this Grandma? This is a charming book, and a very sweet story. Devona seemed a little cold in the early part of the book, but I warmed up to her later on. Artie is a nice guy who gets swept ...more

Artie and Devona were together since before school and never would have dreamed of anything separating them and their love, that seemed to be protected by an older woman - G'ma, who was always there for them- until the day that Artie misguidedly betrays Devona's trust.
Now, 5 years later, he still cannot forget - or forgive his own stupidity. But can G'ma give him a second chance at love?
A magical story about one stupid, but fateful mistake, that changes the course of people's lives. An unconvent

Wonderful magic!
Meet Artemis Hamilton a greedy and selfish person who pretty much lost everything that was important. Then fate popup and show him a way to correct things. This sweet look at a Christmas classic a Christmas Carol is a wonderful fantasy with just a bit of magic too. Who knew that wishing on a strawberry cake could bring happiness or perhaps it was just Grandma? Love this quickie! Loved the characters! This is the one to pick up for a quick coffee break read. It will put a smile on

Artie hears from the woman he most loved and most betrayed in the past. He had been foolish enough to make a choice that might have saved his parents home, but cost him the trust of Devona, the woman who had lived him boy to man.

Some special Christmas magic, and the love of a special someone from their childhood gives them the chance to make better choices.

Intense action and emotions.

In one long chapter, Artemis finds himself in the present regretting his past actions of "greed" that cost him his true love, childhood sweetheart Davona. Unlike Ebeneezer who returns to the present to right his wrong, Artemis returns to his past for his second chance. Will he make the right decision and get his fairytale ending or return to the present right back where he started.

A fun and enjoyable short set during the holidays. A wrong choice in the past is making Artie spend his life alone. All he wants is a do-over and win back the girl he loved but pushed away. A quick read that's definitely worth it.

A sweet short story about regretting some wrong decisions and the opportunity to go back on time and have a second chance. Something we all would like to do at some point but, unfortunately not possible in real life, just in books or films.

A short and quick read in Arts point of view, that's sweet, sad, a bit quirky and maybe farfetched but it's impossible not to get invested in the story.

This was a cute but super short read. This was a 2nd chance romance with a bit of holiday magic.

Written as a 3rd person, single pov with a HEA ending.
