After seven years in Canada, Korean native Jae-ho Kim still hasn’t had the special Christmas Eve date night that he would have enjoyed back home—a fact that has his sister, Soon-kyu, very upset during their yearly phone conversation. This year, Jae’s lack of effort concerning his love life comes back to haunt him in the form of Christmas Eve ghosts, showing him very vividly what will become of him if he refuses to take a chance and find a date for Christmas Eve.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2014 Advent Calendar package “Celebrate!”.
The Eve That Finally Happened by Diane Lennox is a romantic twist on A Christmas Carol. Or at least, that is what it was supposed to be. But the trips through Christmases past, present, and future are so quick and cursory they go unexplained and leave the reader unfulfilled. In addition, I was unable to connect with the main character and the love story was lacking development. There is potential in this story, but for it to be an adequate adaptation of such a beloved Christmas tale, there needs to be more depth and meat to what is already written.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.

Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
