(Audiobook) The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand



On Christmas Eve five years ago, seventeen-year-old Holly Chase was visited by three Ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she’d become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways. She didn’t. And then she died.

Now she’s stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge—as their latest Ghost of Christmas Past. So far, Holly’s afterlife has been miserable. But this year’s Scrooge is different. This year’s Scrooge might change everything… 

I didn’t know what to expect with this book. It just sounds like another Christmas carol book with nothing else happening. I was wrong and I’m so glad I read this book. It is the perfect Christmas book to read every year. I was blown away by the story and over plot twists that happen, I never saw that ending coming.

Your MC Holly Chase is your spoiled rich kid. She is rude to everyone and everything, she only thinks about herself and what she can benefit from the situation. One night her dead stepmother tries to warn her to change her ways and that she will be visited by three spirits. Holly ends up not believing them and dies the next day.

Holly soon starts working for a company called Project Scrooge. They pick one person every year to try and save they tried to save Holly and failed, now Holly is their Ghost of Christmas Past. The Scrooge this year changes everything for Holly. She is thinking of others instead of herself. She is beginning to see things a bit different and hopefully, she can change this year scrooges fate.

The writing was astounding in this novel. I was constantly wondering what was going to happen. It was a great twist on the Classic Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I love Cynthia’s writing and the way she paces and puts the story together. The ending blew me away with this novel and caught me completely off guard. It was never what I expected to happen, I thought it was going a completely different way.

Overall this was such an amazing Christmas Story and makes your heart feel complete by the end. Have you read Afterlife of Holly Chase? What did you think of it?
