It's Christmas time,
so I had to read a Christmas book.
A Very Gothic Christmas
is not very Goth,
but it is a little Christmassy.
There are two little novellas here.
The first one,
After the Music,
is written by Christine Feehan.
It's the story of Dillon,
a famous musician.
his wife got involved with the occult,
and after walking in on her friends
abusing young Jessica,
shots were fired
and the house was burnt.
Jessica arrives on the island
with Dillon's teen aged children
in hopes for Christmas miracle.
Someone has been trying to kill the twins,
and Jessica hopes spending time with their father,
will bring them together as a family
and learn who is trying to harm them all.
Lady of the Locket
is written by Melanie George.
I've never read anything by her,
but after this,
I think I will.
Rachel Hudson travels to Scotland
to fulfill her parents wish,
of spreading their ashes over Glengarren,
the Scottish castle where they met
She sees a portrait of the fierce Highlander,
and something awakens within her.
After a stormy night,
Rachel finds herself face-to-face
This one was heart-wrenching
but so lovely.
