Visit Leanna Renee Hieber's Strangely Beautiful Victorian London, "strange in its happenings and mood and beautiful in its romance and language." -Booklist
Haunted though these soot-stained urban alleys may be, a lonely headmistress and a gallant vicar shall here reap the season's blessings.

    A Midwinter Fantasy

    I absolutely love the world that Leanna has created and ever since I read the first book in the Strangely Beautiful series I have been hoping that we would get to read about Michael and Rebecca, and have their much deserved Happily Ever After come to life.

    I actually met Leanna this past weekend and she being the amazing person that she is, gave me a galley for the Midwinter Fantasy anthology where she finally gives us that long awaited HEA. I finished the story 2 minutes ago and just had to run to my laptop to get these words down.

    A Christmas Carroll is a heartfelt and beautiful story that could only be better if it was longer, though I do think it’s size was perfect and Leanna did the most amazing job in sharing with us the long, winding and sometimes painful path that these two characters have taken to find each other once and for all.

    Leanna masterfully takes a page from the classic Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and makes it her own in such a way that you can’t help but fall in love with it, smile and cry with the references to the classical story. Her genius approach in my opinion was accented by the fact that she did not borrow the idea covertly, but simply owned it in the story itself, with mentions of Charles Dickens’ himself and even allowing the story to not take itself too seriously by adding a much appreciated and well crafted dose of humor.

    All of our favorite characters are there and we get to see how Percy and Alexi are doing, along with Josephine and Elijah. I felt like I was attending a reunion with much beloved friend I hadn’t seen in a while and couldn’t wait to catch up with.

    If you enjoy Leanna’s Strangely Beautiful  series this is an absolute must read, that I guarantee you will not regret getting. If you are new to the series, there are spoilers to the stories in books one and two, but I feel that those will only make you want to read those books even more!

     

    Lovey_5

     

    As you guys should know, I am in The States right now and last weekend I was at the AAD Book Convention, where I had the imense pleasure of meeting Leanna Renne Hieber.

    I also had the great pleasure of Interviewing the heroine of Leanna’s books, Percy Parker, Enjoy:

     

    As you can see, I was a Vampire for the party at the AAD! =P

      Leanne's new book sounds like a really good read.

      I actually commented on some blog that I was surprised that nobody had tried to do a mash-up of any of Charles Dickens books as yet, so the remark about him caught my eye.

    10. Thanks SO MUCH Larissa!!! Meeting you was such a highlight and I'm very excited to contribute some Strangely Beautiful swag to your cause here, thanks for your wonderful words about this novella.

      And thanks again for the interview!

      I wish the book were coming out in Mass Market paperback but alas, even though all the links are up for it, its only digital / eBook release :( and unfortunately the links for digital aren't up yet. So perhaps the best thing is to go to the publisher's site: www.dorchesterpub.com - sorry everyone, these changes have been a bit confusing and out of our control. :(

    **As of Today, Feb 24th, This Blog is an Award Free Zone!**

    I am sorry! I LOVE the awards you give me and I wish I didn't have to do this, but my blogging schedule in general has not made possible for me to follow the requirements for the awards I receive.

    Because of that, I feel that this is for the best.
