I'm a sucker for all things 'A Christmas Carol' and Marquette's "The Bureau of Holiday Affairs" is an absolutely delightful retelling of Dickens's Christmas classic. The highest complement I can give it is that I didn't want it end. Don't miss this Christmas romance. It's just wonderful.
Loved the setting of this story. Steampunk western always gets a win in my book. My only complaint is that the ending felt rushed. I appreciate when an author takes the time to put a denouement that does more than pay scant lip service to wrapping up the dangling plot bits. That's not the case here, but other wise this was an enjoyable story that most should like, especially if they appreciate the offered setting.
I'd like to give this book more stars, but I can't. Despite the fact that there's a fun, imaginative story here, the book itself is rife with spelling and grammatical errors and is in desperate need of an editor. I'd overlook these things if the book were free or $0.99, but at the $4.99 list price I expect a product that is of a significantly better quality.
If you're the sort of reader that can overlook this sort of thing, jump in. I think you'll enjoy the book. Otherwise I can't recommend that you spend your money on this book. Apologies to the author for saying that.
