Overview

On Christmas Eve, Keti Whitechapel finds a dog

Prophetically, perhaps, she names the dog Marley. That night, the ghosts of her past appear in a dream--or is it a dream? Inexplicable things have been happening since she came home to Bounty, Nevada, a place she'd once vowed to leave forever. But Keti's no longer a poor miner's daughter. She's a successful businesswoman with only one regret: Martin Collins, her cherished childhood friend. The man she's never forgotten. The man she loved and lost. Strange apparitions are abroad this astonishing, magical night. Soon Keti finds herself reliving the joy of first love with Martin...and the anguish of a secret heartache. And suddenly her future becomes clear--if Keti can find the courage to give Martin the truest gift of all: the gift of her heart.

Meet the Author

Margot Early spent her first years in a dark three-story Tudor mansion, where, gazing out an upper window, she once saw a man fall from the roof. Born late to a large family, she soon became acquainted with the fine shadings of human nature; at the age of 11, she began expressing her findings in the medium of fiction. Early develops the same theme in every book: that darkness and light dwell together, and that truth renders even the ugly and imperfect as beautiful and perfect.

She has studied martial arts and herbalism and enjoys walking in the forest, especially in the shadows, where she is quick to crouch and examine any animal sign. This award-winning bestselling author has written 10 Harlequin Superromances and one novella; her storytelling is to romance fiction what Siouxie and the Banshees are to pop music. There are three million of her books in print in seven languages and 15 countries. Margot Early dwells in the shifting landscape of Colorado's San Juan Mountains with her loved ones.

    Lacking the Spirit of Christmas

    This story had so much potential but just never really reached the level of engaging and interesting. The heroine was not sympathetic and I did not find myself even cheering for her in the story. A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite tales of all time and I enjoy many various takes on the original - this one does not join the ranks! It held none of the magic and warmth of the original Christmas tale on which it was loosely based. Would not recommend this story at all. No stars for rating if this were possible!

    well written update of a segment of A Christmas Carol

    Wealthy fifty-five years old Keti Whitechapel owns Bounty Mountain Resort in her hometown of Bounty, Nevada. Kei knows she has come a long way from her lonely impoverished childhood, but though she is rich, she remains alone in spite of having a child with Dr. Martin Collins.------------ Her only childhood friend Martin ended his relationship with Keti though he loves her because he loathes her lack of business ethics, which extends to her personal relationships. Keti prepares to celebrate Christmas Eve as she always has by herself until she rescues a mutt she names Marley. However this time whether it is a dream or a ghost Keti looks back on the monumental events that shaped her miserable life.-------------- Keti is a modern day female Scrooge who looks back at what made her who she is today. Fans looking for a romance probably should pass though there is a glimpse of her first time with Martin and a possible second chance at love if she risks rejection by telling him how much she loves him. However, although the rest of the cast is never developed except in terms of how they relate to Keti, this well written update of a segment of A Christmas Carol is a character study of how the child becomes the adult.--------- Harriet Klausner
