She isn’t too concerned about the prospect of spending the night in the store…until a woman appears out of nowhere and tells Noelle that she’s her guardian angel. Soon Noelle finds herself camped out in the shoe department facing several “ghosts” of Christmases past, present, and future...Will visiting the holidays of yesterday and tomorrow help Noelle see the true spirit of Christmas?

Chapter 1
It was a picture-perfect Christmas Eve. Snow was falling at almost two inches an hour, swirling down in front of the Simon’s Department Store window displays on Massachusetts Avenue like flakes in a snow globe. People either hurried past—clutching their coats to them and closing their eyes against the cold—or ambled along, looking up and around with childlike wonder at the beauty. Even the most ordinary scene, like the Exxon service station across the street from the main door, took on a fairy-tale quality, like a gingerbread house iced in a confection of snow.

Simon’s, where I worked in human resources, would have been the perfect subject inside a snow globe, or maybe an impressionistic painting. The owner, Lex Prather, was a very old-fashioned guy (bow tie, martinis, a physique as straight and trim as a cigarette), and I swear he designed the place with Fred Astaire movies in mind.

Or maybe it was more accurate to say that the store was established in the thirties and all of the owners since then, including Lex’s late mother and now he himself, had maintained it as the kind of setting where you wouldn’t be at all surprised to see a guy in a top hat and tails walk in.

There was even a glove counter. Small, admittedly. Not the most popular department in the store, by any means, but it did more business than you’d expect. There are always Audrey Hepburn/Holly Golightly wannabes, and this was like a Wonderland to them; there are always Women of a Certain Age, and ... More

My Review

NYT bestseller Beth Harbison’s Shoe Addict holiday novella is short and sweet, an entertaining, with a message, mix between A Christmas Carol and Its A Wonderful Life. With a storyline that’s both timely and timeless and fantastic stars including her guardian angel showstopper, A Shoe Addict’s Christmas is soon to become the next Christmas classic!

Noelle Carpenter hates the holidays and has since her mom died when she was young. So being accidentally locked inside Simon’s Department Store where she works in HR on a snowy Christmas Eve when she has nowhere to go and nothing to do sounds like a dream. That is until her worst Christmas nightmare shows up in the form of her guardian angel hoping to inject her with some holiday cheer by rewriting some of the worst holiday memories of her past and giving them happier endings.
