Review: A Fairy Nice Christmas by J.A. Kerr

Will she get her happy ever after?


The office has a Christmas tradition.

Whoever places the fairy on top of the tree is destined to find true love.

They believe the fairy is magical.

Simone does not.

She suffers from P.T.S.D…Post Traumatic Season Disorder.

The festive season to be precise.

Simone has an aversion to Christmas.

A fairy matchmaker?

As if!

One by one they write their names on the slips of paper.

At last, the bowl is full and the office staff gather around.

The girls wear excited smiles while the guys look quite sick.

Only one name will be picked…but who will it be?

Hannah plucks a folded slip and waves it in the air.

The office staff hold their breath.

I have to be honest, I had no plans on finishing A Fairy Nice Christmas. I got a third of the way through the book and I was scratching my head. I got to the half-way point and I was aggravated with the way I thought the story was heading.

J.A. Kerr knows what they are doing and I am so glad I finished the book. I do not want to give anything away, but the fairy knows what she is doing. If you start reading it and want to yell at Simone…be patient. Kerr knows how to reward you (laugh). A Fairy Nice Christmas is worth reading through.

I make the book sound so negative and I do not mean to, you just had to be with me last night as I was reading it to understand. When you see a character going one way and you are yelling at her, “Nooooo….” Yes, I get a little invested in my characters.

In some ways this book reminds me of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (Dir. John Hughes 1986) – now Kerr is scratching their head. There is a lot of internal dialogue to the reader. This is probably because Simone has no friends to tell her tale of woe too. So you get a lot of moments of Simone telling you all kinds of things and sometimes going on a tangent. Then you have someone else, say Hannah for instance, saying “Simone…Simone…Simone…” (Bueller, Bueller, Bueller…laugh).

A Fairy Nice Christmas is truly a miracle romance (not giving away any spoilers here lol). Thank goodness for Gloria because she ensures it is a happily-ever-after holiday indeed.

I received an ARC of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
