Novella: A Highland Ghost for Christmas

 

Madison Jacobson had her heart broken when she found her boyfriend of five years with another woman. To add insult to injury, he took all the money they had saved for their wedding.

It is almost Christmas and this year she would receive a Christmas present that would forever change her life. Maddy’s best friend, Ellie, decided to give her a very unusual gift, a visit to Madame Azalea’s tea house for a reading. According to Madame Azalea there would be two men in her life both very handsome and one who wears a kilt. Maddy had already signed up for a dating service and so she was hopeful that was where she would meet her two men.
Cullen Macfie has been a ghost for three centuries and when he sees Maddy at the tea house he is smitten. The tea house hosts a poker night for ghosts and Cullen is a regular. Cullen actually has a therapist, CeeCee, who keeps attempting to mend Cullen’s ways and have him finally find his way to Heaven, only Cullen is happy where he is. Three centuries ago he was in love, but marriages were arranged. When he was caught kissing his love, her husband killed them both. His soul has stayed alive because his has been filled with hatred for the man who killed him and his sweetheart.
 Cullen and CeeCee make a deal that involves Maddy. He is given five days to make her happy, six months without visits with CeeCee, or off to Heaven. Cullen makes himself known to Maddy and they are able to communicate through his ability to write. They bake cookies together, watch TV and talk about their lives. She is falling in love with a ghost and then a flesh and blood human from the dating service comes knocking.

This was a perfect Christmas story filled with humor and love. Maddy has to choice between a ghost in a kilt or a human that can kiss her, but what she chooses is not something I will reveal. This is a story that puts a smile on your face and I highly recommend it.

Take Care of Yourself

shutterstock_113449987No matter how much caffeine I drink, I find it hard to concentrate this time of year. So much to do and so little time.

Add another hurdle. We’re expecting three days of snow. Aaach!!! Haven’t seen that stuff for three years, except on the mountains from a distance.

Not complaining. Just saying. The days are short, the nerves are frazzling and we all need good cheer.

Take of yourselves, my friends.

hugs,
