The Afterlife of Holly Chase Book Review

Summary: (borrowed from Barnes and Noble) On Christmas Eve five years ago, seventeen-year-old Holly Chase was visited by three Ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she’d become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways. She didn’t. And then she died.

Now she’s stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge—as their latest Ghost of Christmas Past. So far, Holly’s afterlife has been miserable. But this year’s Scrooge is different. This year’s Scrooge might change everything…

Thoughts: I got this book because my December TBR had no holiday books and this one was on display at my local library. I saw that it was a retelling of a Christmas Carol which I have never read so I was a bit worried about that. I’m so glad that I decided to read it because it was such a cute Christmas story.

I loved the romance aspect of this story and how Holly was trying to fix the scrooge. I loved how Ethan’s past mirrored Holly’s and how they bonded over small things. I liked watching as they both grew as people and as they changed in the readers eyes as well.

The twist at the end was so unexpected and was something that I never saw coming. I was like wow how did they do that but was also kind of sad because I was rooting for the original plot I thought was happening. I loved the way they shifted everything and how they made sense of things.

I recommend this to those of you who enjoyed A Christmas Carol and those of you who enjoy romance.

You can get this book at Barnes and Noble or look for it at your local library.
