There’s nothing On Top managing editor Cynthia “Starr” Starling hates more than Christmas. With an important deadline looming, plus her dreaded Christmas Day birthday, Starr just wants the holiday to end. But when she wakes up Christmas Eve night to the ghost of Christmas Past, Present, and Future—all in the form of the super-hot Matt Landry, the new art director—she knows she’s in for a long night.
Matt is the one person on Starr’s team she can’t boss around and the only one she doesn’t need to. He’s also her employee and totally off limits, even if he does seem interested. Though he’s seven years younger and all kinds of forbidden fruit, he’s the form the Powers That Be decided she’d be receptive to.
Because they have a message for her: learn the true meaning of Christmas spirit or risk being alone for the rest of her life.
A Cinderella Christmas Carol is a holiday novella in the Suddenly Cinderella series by Hope Tarr. I haven’t yet read the first book in the series, Operation Cinderella, but I plan to now! This novella is centered around Starr who is all about work and not a lot about fun. Starr is cast as the Scrooge of Christmas time. Christmas Day, and her birthday, hold little meaning for her anymore so she is in need of her own personal Christmas ghost. Definitely a take on the Charles Dicken’s classic, this version is full of humor, too. And how could you have a “Cinderella” story without a great pair of shoes, too?!
Fun holiday read, and a quick one!
