I love me a holiday story with a ghost, so this one caught my attention. It’s been on my TBR for a while now, and it follows a young man named Nathan (AKA Nathaniel) who runs a B&B, which just happens to be haunted by a ghost named Gabriel, who has taken it upon himself to play matchmaker with Nathan’s guests. Nathan has become used to Gabriel’s tricks and matchmaking over the years and does his best to ignore him.
So as we learn, Gabriel has been trapped in the house for nearly 100 years, and his time there is coming to an end. That is to say, unless he can make someone else fall in love, Gabriel will cease to exist and face only darkness.
To add to the intrigue, one of Nate’s former crushes is coming to the B&B, so if Gabriel can get them to fall in love, maybe he’ll get to move on. But things are not always as they seem.
This was such a sweet and enjoyable read, and I was in the mood for a fluffy holiday romance, so this one fit the bill perfectly. Though it’s a short book, coming in only at about 135 pages, it is a satisfying read. It would have made a fantastic full-length novel, though.
All in all, a heartwarming and romantic Christmas story with delightful characters and fun banter. Given that’s it’s a short book, I can’t say too much more about it, but I will say that if you’re in the mood for a little holiday spirit, then you may want to give this one a go.
