Suddenly let go from her news anchor position, Aria Roberts heads north to stay at her late Great-Aunt Clara’s house. She has many good memories there and wishes to give Clara’s Christmas Shoppe, which is located on the first floor of the Victorian mansion, one final holiday season. When Aria arrives, she finds the special gift Clara left for her—an antique nutcracker with a poem hidden under the back lever. Aria reads the poem out loud. At sundown that night, those words magically bring the nutcracker to life. 

Kort Zellner awakes inside the familiar surroundings of Clara’s house but learns she has passed away and now her great-niece resides there. The curse placed on him three hundred years ago traps him in the form of a nutcracker but allows him to return every December 1st through midnight on Christmas Day—only between sundown and sunrise. 
After some convincing, Aria believes Kort’s strange story. She helps him experience life as he is gifted so few hours alive and in doing so, falls in love. He knows his curse makes it impossible to give her the constant relationship she deserves. His plan to leave her forever on Christmas Day collides with Aria’s desire to build a future together, even if for only twenty-five nights a year.

Aria Roberts is staying at her Aunt Clara’s house and wants to give her Christmas Shoppe a go for one more year. When she finds a gift from her aunt, an antique nutcracker, she finds a poem inside. In reading the poem, the nutcracker suddenly comes to life. Imagine Aria’s shock to find the nutcracker is a real person and comes to life each year on December 1st thru December 25th. Aria learns this curse was placed on Kort 300 years ago and works tirelessly to find a way to break the curse. 

Thus is a very different Christmas story than most I have read. I found it fun and entertaining as Aria and Kort try to find a way to be together more than the 25 days a year Kort has. A Nutcracker Christmas by Laurie Winter is a sweet Christmas story that is nice reading in the weeks before Christmas. I love Nutcracker’s and will never look at one the same after reading this book. If you enjoy a good Christmas read, this is on you want to try. Check it out for hours of entertainment and enjoyment.
