Once Upon A Dickens Christmas
by Michelle Griep

Now available to read from Shiloh Run Press is Once Upon A Dickens Christmas by Christy Award Winning Author Michelle Griep, featuring 3 charming Christmas tales set in Victorian England.

12 Days at Bleakly Manor

Brought together under mysterious circumstances, Clara and Ben discover that what they’ve been striving for isn’t what ultimately matters. What matters most is what Christmas is all about . . . love.

A Tale of Two Hearts

Pleasure seeker William Barlow needs a wife immediately to gain his uncle’s inheritance, and Mina Scott is just the girl to make him look respectable—too bad she turns him down. Ought he give her a second chance?

The Old Lace Shop

Recently widowed Bella White is finally freed from the domination of the overbearing men in her life, but when she enters into a business partnership with the handsome Edmund Archer, she begins to wonder if marriage is worth a second chance.

Where To Purchase?

Once Upon a Dickens Christmas features 3 holiday romances by Michelle Griep that are inspired by the great works of Charles Dickens (a.k.a. — the author of A Christmas Carol). I have to admit I had never heard of Michelle Griep until I learned about this release a few months ago. After reading the three novellas, I'm really impressed with her writing style. All of the main characters are likeable, the descriptions are detailed, and the dialogues are well-written.

A Tale of Two Hearts (inspired by A Tale of Two Cities) and The Old Lace Shop (inspired by The Old Curiosity Shop) have the same of theme of "second chances" and they're both enjoyable reads. My favorite out of the three stories happens to be 12 Days at Bleakly Manor, which was clearly inspired by Charles Dickens' Bleak House

Overall, I loved reading all three tales in Once Upon A Dickens Christmas. It would make a great gift for any reader!
