it was amazing

Emma Louise Fallon, “Elf” for short, has decided that Christmas is not the most wonderful time of the year, at least this year. Disappointed by her latest boyfriend, and in danger of losing her job, Elf can’t bear “to see the pity in everyone’s eyes because she has to spend another Christmas alone.” So, she decides to go to a secluded cabin for the Christmas holidays with her best friend Carla.

Of course, events continue to go wrong for Elf, and when we meet up with her, she is running out of gas near the small, quaint town of Polerton on her way to the cabin. She also learns that Carla can’t make it to the cabin after all. Can Elf face a bleak, dark cabin in the woods all alone?

Yes, it turns out that she can thanks to the magical characters that she meets that not only help her, but provide us with the most delightful Christmas love story I have read in a long time! Nick and Mrs. C run the general store in Polerton and they give Elf a warm welcome and plenty of food. But Elf’s best friend turns out to be the cat, Sue, who turns up at the cabin and helps Elf turn on the generator, gather logs, and start a blazing fire in the fireplace. Sue the enchanting cat even encourages Elf to cut down a fir tree for Christmas and helps Elf get it in the cabin and finds the decorations!

But, despite her pride in her pioneer accomplishments, Elf can’t decide “if living alone in a cabin is fun or torturous.” Until she meets the last marvelous character, Rudi the town vet and part-time cop. When Nick C. (Santa?) gets in a pickle, can Rudi and Elf guide him?

Yes again, in the same way that Author Allyson Abbot steers us to a satisfying and heart-warming conclusion that will jingle all your Christmas bells. The author writes in a clear voice, with fresh characters, and adds just enough surprises, and romance. Sweet, amusing, whimsical, charming- this book is a Christmas gift!
