This is my first book that I have read my Michelle Griep. I found it for a good deal at Ollie’s and it not only had an attractive cover, but if also has the pages I like that have uneven edges. Both of those things plus that it is a Christmas book drew me to wanting to read it. This novel is a collection of three novellas, 12 Days at Bleakly Manor, A Tale of Two Hearts, and The Old Lace Shop, all by Michelle Griep. All three novellas are slightly related and all of them are excellent reads. You will not be disappointed if you pick this book to read not just at Christmas but anytime of the year. Each story reminds you that it is good to give people second chances. They all have romance in the story and some intrigue as well.
