Review: Holiday Spirit

Holiday Spirit
by Donna Michaels

Every year, during the winter solstice, a door is opened for ghosts to move on. And every year, Lucius Beamount and his ghost wife, Hattie Mae, pass up the opportunity in order to help mankind. This year is no exception. Jeff Grayson and his wife Carolyn need to be reunited for a very special reason. The bumbling fun begins when Jeff leaves L.A. to fly home to surprise his wife—who's on a plane bound for California to surprise him. Little do they know they're about to encounter some Holiday Spirit.

This was a really sweet holiday tale about a couple trying to make their way across country to be with each other for Christmas. The trouble is, they’re about to criss-cross the country and miss each other.

While I enjoyed the married ghost couple, Lucius and Hattie Mae, and found their interactions to be sweet and quirky, I wished the story had put more focus on Jeff and Carolyn. Instead of developing Jeff and Carolyn as characters, the ghosts were more developed and had more dialogue.

This is a quick, charming story that is full of holiday spirit, even if it is a little light on the romance.
