Spirits of Christmas: A Rock’n’Roll Christmas Carol by Nicky Wells

At one time, up-and-coming rock singer Jude had it all: a great band, a platinum record, a loving girlfriend. This Christmas, however, he is well down the road towards spontaneous self-destruction.

Unwitting at first, Jude has progressively alienated his band and driven away the love of his life. Tonight, the night before Christmas Eve, he has broken the final taboo during a disastrous gig. Yet Jude doesn’t see how badly his life has derailed, not until a ghostly procession of legends passes through his bedroom with a series of vivid and powerful wake-up calls.

Will the Spirits help Jude put the friendship, love, and rock music back into his Christmas?

Follow Jude as he embarks on a journey of self discovery with the Sprits of Christmas.
Can he save himself before it's too late?

I love the age old tale A Christmas Carol and this year it's back with a new twist.
Thanks to Nicky Wells, A Christmas Carol has gone rock and roll!

The characters were wonderful and I loved the ghosts, there was something haunting (excuse the pun) and secretive about them, that had me enchanted.

This is the first book I've read by Nicky Wells and it certainly won't be the last.
It's a brilliant twist to the Christmas Carol we all love and will definitely be a story I will re-read.
It's modern, quirky and romantic.

5/5

Thank you to Nicky for sending me a copy to review

  3. No, it completely took me by surprise. I'm going to get it in a paperback and make it a regular Christmas read.
    Truly wonderful xx
