Where better to set a Christmas novella than in Lapland I think this may be the first book I have read that is set there and its made me want to visit Lapland than ever before The place sounds completely magical at Christmas time and magic is something that Jessie really needs Jessie suffered a tragedy a few weeks before last Christmas and this year she is determined to do things her way so she tags along on her brother's ski trip to Lapland On her first day their she meets Mikku a young Sami man and he seems to really empathise with Jessie He also points her straight into the path of ZacOver a few short days Zac and Jessie become uite close and they are both big believers in fate Even if you are a bit sceptical about fate you will certainly feel a connection between the pair and that is a connection that is strengthened when their pasts are revealed For a relatively short novella this book packs uite a lot in and I found I was wondering certain things about Mikku and although not completely correct I was vaguely along the right lines The descriptions of Finnish Lapland even without meeting Santa Claus make it sound like a wonderful place and I could really picture the sky in all of its various shades of colour in a place that has very little sunlight in winter I really enjoyed this novella and got a uite a good Christmassy vibe from it despite reading it in summer

Icing A PDF #206 A story of love and hope at Christmas The First Christmas Without You is an emotional and poignant novell. Jessie's husband died a year ago just a few weeks before Christmas He was her life her past her future Without him Jess feels lost and she definitely does not feel ready to move on She is however determined to convince her loved once she's doing just fine She knows she has to keep going but she's just not sure how to get on with life without Jase She decides to follow her brother and his friends to Lapland the dream holiday she and Jase had been looking forward to for so longIn Lapland Jess finds herself enjoying the holiday spirit again and together with her new friend Mikku she starts thinking about her life She looks back on the past year and how she handled grieving for her husband But moving on will prove to be much harder than she thought I'm not a big believer in fate and destiny so the idea of fate bringing them together which is pretty much a constant throughout the story kept me from getting really absorbed into the story Mikku wasn't my favorite character I liked how he was able to help Jess rethink her life how he helped her decide for herself what it is she wanted I did find him to be a bit pushy at times and I would have liked it if his mentor role had been assigned to her brother for example instead of a complete stranger she met walking down the street I did love reading Jessie's journey and I love how the story is full of hope and Michelle beautifully describes Jessie's mixed feelings of love guilt pain loss Final note I absolutely love the coverI'm very happy I got the chance to read this novella just in time for Christmashttpmssbookshelfblogspotbe
