The Blurb

Dreams come true on Christmas day … don’t they?

It’s three days until Lucy and Andrew’s perfect winter wedding. Over Christmas dinner the two families will meet for the first time.
What could possibly go wrong?!

Jo has planned her first Christmas as a married woman with military precision. But it seems her new husband Dave has gone missing …

Strict vegans Dawn and Kirk slave away over a unique Christmas feast, but Dawn’s mum doesn’t like mung beans. And she certainly doesn’t like Kirk …

Will these couples survive the Christmas madness and get the day they dreamed of?

The Review

What a disappointing short story!

All I Want for Christmas focuses on the lives of three couples and the problems that face modern love. So far so good, right? However, the stories are never fully developed. We have no idea what happens to these characters; if I am honest we don’t really have time enough to fall in love with them either. Yet, we are left with a very ambiguous ending that destroys any possible Christmas cheer.

I don’t really know what else to say about All I Want for Christmas. I am just very disappointed.
