Review: The Reluctant Elf by Michele Gorman

The Reluctant Elf is a Kindle Single!
Amazon really jingled Michele's  bells when they accepted her Christmas novella, The Reluctant Elf, into the Kindle Singles programme!

Meet Britain's Worst Innkeeper

Single mother and extremely undomestic goddess, Lottie, has five days to become the ultimate B&B hostess to save her beloved Aunt Kate’s livelihood.

When Aunt Kate ends up in the hospital, Lottie and her seven-year-old daughter are called to rural Wales to stand in at the B&B. Without the faintest idea how to run a hotel (she can barely run her own life), Lottie must impress the picky hotel reviewer and his dysfunctional family who are coming to stay over Christmas. Without the rating only he can bestow, Aunt Kate will lose her livelihood.

But will Danny, the local taxi driver who she hires to help her, really be Santa’s little helper, or the Grinch who stole Christmas?

It published on November 13th globally on Amazon, but if you don't have a Kindle, it's also available in paperback :-) 


Gorman has an amazing way to get into the head of women and articulate their thoughts in an honest, humorous and entertaining way.  She creates a blend of characters and a plot that is not to be expected, but it appreciated and enjoyed by anyone who reads her books.  I adored the story of Lottie and the journey to pull off Christmas even among the chaos and confusion due to the zany characters that surround Lottie. Humorous, heartwarming and entertaining.  Another hit by Gorman, an ABSOLUTE FAVORITE writer of mine. A must read novella for the holiday season!  5 stars
