Prah, Constantine & Baryeh Reviews #christmas

For the month of December our review team decided to read a seasonal book.

Julie wants only one gift this holiday season, but it’s going to take a Christmas miracle to make her wish come true.

Julie Hamilton loves Christmas. It’s her favorite time of year, from the cinnamon smell of freshly baked mince-pies to the excitement of buying gifts for family and friends, decorating the tree, and hanging stockings for Santa Claus on the mantelpiece.
This Christmas promises to be extra special because she’s expecting the perfect gift--her first baby--on Christmas Eve.
However, a chance encounter turns her world upside down, and soon, she’s praying for her very own Christmas miracle.
Can the spirit of the Christmas season and the kindness of strangers find a way to make her wish come true?

Cathrina's Review:

I loved the cover of The Gift and the blurb was enticing. 

However, The Gift was not what I expected. The author 

Joanne Clancy fooled me. Having a first baby for Christmas is 

precious. (I know I had two myself in December) While The 

Gift begins on an upbeat note, especially with the baby's 

birth, the reader sees something coming, and hopes it 

doesn't. To ease any worries, I will say the baby is healthy, so 

don't get upset. It's something else that happens. 

Since I never leave spoilers, I will say The Gift is a fast easy 


Now let's head over to Nana Prah and Empi Baryeh to read 

their reviews.


  1. You are so right. I didn't want to see it. Heck I wanted to stop it. "Go with your gut." I kept repeating, but of course...

  2. I think we are in agreement on this one. No real surprises but I was afraid to read and get to the part where the inevitable happens.
