  Wow peeps this will be my last post of the year, can't believe how fast this year has gone. For my last book of the year is a Christmas novella by Hp Mallory and J.R Rain. THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT .

                          BOOK BLURB

   It’s Christmas Eve, and Poppy isn’t feeling much of the Christmas spirit.

Her mind churning with doubt regarding her recent engagement to Marty, Poppy’s thoughts are a turbulent sea of anxiety and regret.

When a stranger walks into Poppy’s shop, introducing herself as Noelle, she tells Poppy she’s looking for a potion called Holiday Cheer. Poppy is surprised because she’s never even heard of it.

Almost as soon as Noelle walks into the shop, she disappears again, leaving only the recipe for the potion and a festive candy cane.

After brewing the mystery potion, Poppy finds herself transported to a dreamscape of her own life five years into the future.

Whether the vision is a gift delivered by the Spirit of Christmas or the result of Poppy’s stressed mind, she’ll be confronted with a future that will make her reconsider her present.

                MY REVIEW

    Poppy is having second thoughts over her engagement with Marty. It is Christmas eve and Poppy is filled anxiety and a little bit of regret. Until the moment a sweet stranger comes into her shop and has Poppy mix up a potion . After Poppy brews up the potion, she is transported into a future that is five years ahead . Will the vision help Poppy out and help set her feelings on the right path and help her decide her present. 

 Poppy is back and she is stressed to the max, she is torn on what to do about her future . Also she is having trouble with Finn growing up, just like all moms do. I was kind of worried about her in the end of the last book , she is such a people pleaser and wants to do the right thing. We actually get to see her grow up and stand her ground. Noelle is a sweet character that is all Christmas magic and sweetness all rolled into a cutie. We don't see much of her but what we do see is a sweet magical pixie that is showing Poppy the way. 

This book was written right after Pan's Delight which I was excited for. We didn't have to wait to find out what is going on with Poppy. They really hit it on the head. It is like they took a part of Scrooged Christmas story and applied it to Poppy. It is a fast fun read that put me in the Christmas spirit. I can't wait for the next Haven Hollow book.  If you want a fun series check it out.
