What if you got exactly what you wanted this Christmas? Find out why you should be careful what you wish for in best-seller Chrissie Manby's (Getting Over Mr Right, Seven Sunny Days) exclusive Christmas novella.

It’s the 1st of December and Milly Arnold is facing a miserable Noel. Newly single, the last thing she wants to do is join her settled sister and her young family

Awww randomly stumbled upon this looking at some Xmas short stories. 

What if you got everything you wanted for Christmas? That is what happens to Milly Arnold after she is dumped just about a month before the holidays. The problem is....she is about to learn that she needs to be careful what she wishes for. 

This was a quick listen but I really enjoyed it. Poor Milly. Being dumped RIGHT before the holidays is rough. Luckily she has her family looking out for her and Santa has a wicked sense of humor. 

I would've loved this to be longer. I want to see more of Milly and her family. They were a lot of fun. I adored Milly.

The narrator was good. Perfect for the characters. 

Overall, this was a perfect way to start of the holidays! My first Xmas of the season. 4 stars. 


- #75 for Audiobook challenge


  1. Sounds like a fun Christmas read!

  2. Bummer being dumped right before the holidays. I've already dived into the holiday reads. It seems they're being released earlier and earlier. Glad to hear this was a win.

  3. This sounds like a fun Christmas story. I wonder what would happen if I did get everything that I wanted.
