Not gonna lie Clarissa, the author, is a friend of my husband. And with a title like Christmas in Whimsy I probably would have passed this book by (I’m a bit of a Grinch). However, knowing the author was a good thing because this book was totally up my alley!

Yes it takes place Christmas, yes there are love stories, yes there is a bit of magic. The story is still relatable, and there are details sprinkled through out that are not in your classic ‘chick-lit’ read. Bonus, a few words I had to go l

Those who know me know I am a sucker for the holidays. So when Clarissa Markiewicz reached out to me about reviewing her book, Christmas In Whimsy, she had me at the title.

The book is, at its core, about friendships, the kind of support that sometimes comes with a hug and other times with a slight kick in the pants. The women care about each other, help each other, sustain each other when life becomes a little too much to handle.

And the Christmas timeframe makes it even more perfect!

Reading this engaging book was like reading a Hallmark Christmas movie but with deeper character-development and surprising plot twists. (I love to escape to a Hallmark Christmas movie.) I especially liked the scenes where one character time-traveled to the future. Autho Clarissa Markiewicz has a great imagination and engaging writing style. I highly recommend this book for reading any time of year, and I hope to read a sequel some day, because Whimsy is definitely worth visiting again.

Claire is a good friend of mine and a former colleague. I am in awe of her writing talents.
This book was everything I thought it would be! Magic, whimsical! I got lost in that world she created and my heart was so warm upon the last page!
Beautiful book!!! So proud, Claire!!! You go girl!!!

I thought this book was excellent. It was quick paced and held my interest. The characters came alive and the author did an excellent job of creating separation between them while at the same time, you walked away thinking you have met them all along the way. I found it a fun book to read.
