The First Christmas Without You - Michelle Betham

4 Stars!

A story of love and hope at Christmas, The First Christmas Without You is an emotional and poignant novella. A truly magical Lapland fairytale…
Jessie Collins has always wanted to visit Lapland. But this Christmas, more than any other, it’s the place she feels she really needs to be as she tries to come to terms with a future she really needs to start living.

I've been writing all my life, but started writing seriously almost 2 years ago, in that time completing 3 novels.
I'm an independent author - self-publishing my novels as eBooks only for the time being - born in the North East of England.
I now live in County Durham, spend almost every day thinking up new stories and creating new characters - and I love it! I just want to write stories that people want to read, and hopefully enjoy. Stories that give people the chance to escape everyday life and live in another world for a while. They're the kind of books I like to read, and they're the kind of books I like to write.

A very nice Christmas read! I love books like this - a woman alone for one reason or another goes off someplace new to get her wrecked life back together. If something big happened in my life that's exactly what I would do, so I love reading books about women who do the same. I read a lot of books like this and I usually love them all.

This story takes place in the Finish Lapland and I have never read a book that took place there before. I also love reading books about new places.

This story was a tiny bit slow in spots, that's the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5. Other than that, A very pleasant book to read.

Thank you Netgalley and Harper Collins for sending me this e-book to read and review!
