Mimi Barbour Delivers a Story to Warm Your Heart

Today I am trying my hand at a book review. Let me know what you think.

Together for Christmas is multi-published author, Mimi Barbour’s, fifth book in her Vicarage Bench Series. It is a delightful story of two people falling in love, inside one body. Yes, you heard me right – one body.

After a fall, Abbie Taylor’s  spirit leaves her body and takes up residence in Marcus Chapman, a handsome, independent  man. Trapped in the closest and most intimate of spaces, they get to know each other and themselves. The dialogue is witty and the plot is fun. You find yourself cheering them on, as they fall hopelessly in love.

Barbour spins a difficult to tell story with ease. Her prose is smooth. Her characters rich and her plot fast paced. She delivers the well deserved happily ever after ending perfectly. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys sweet romance with imagination.

Author: Jo-Ann Carson

About Jo-Ann Carson Where magic happens … Reports of Jo-Ann Carson’s death on a Gulf Island are greatly exaggerated or, at the very least, premature. The eclectic crew of ghosts that haunt her head spill onto the page in two series: The Gambling Ghosts and The Ghost & Abby Mysteries. A Viking with existential issues, a broken hearted Highlander, a Casanova man-witch and a Pirate with a secret are just a few of the males her strong heroines encounter in tales of fantasy, adventure and romance. A firm believer in the magic of our everyday lives, Jo-Ann loves watching sunrises, walking beaches near her home in the Pacific Northwest and reading by the fire.

  1. Wow, Jo-Ann. This is a lovely review and gave me just the lift I needed to get my butt back in my chair and start editing my wip. Thank you so much. Since I know that you must be flying high thinking of your new little angel in the family, your granddaughter, I feel doubly blessed that you took the time to think of me now.

  2. I had to read this, because the premise of the book sounds like nothing I’ve ever imagined possible. I don’t mean the actual doing of it, but the coming up of the concept for it and pulling it off. Sounds like a very interesting and fun read. Thanks for a great review. You’ve caught my interest.

      I know what you mean. The idea of spirit travel is puzzling, but Mimi pulls it off beautifully. Thanks for stopping by.
      Best Wishes
