I loved this delightful story, partly because I like well written stories and partly because the ending is just right.

Hooray! What a wonderful Christmas present. This is fun to read. I love the pink ruffles. Very well written and I love the humor throughout. Great job!

Love the wry and sarcastic voice of your main character!

I suspect there are a number of people who could relate to this woman's plight--and who would very much appreciate her voice. Your MC is a crack-up.

You got a lot of story in the word count! I felt like I knew Carolyn by the end. I kept wondering what was "pink with ruffles", and was delighted by the ending. Super!

Knowing the community here, I was almost certain the main character would pull out of her slump. I was glad I wasn't disappointed! :)

The sarcasm in this piece was great. Definitely my kind of humor.

I agree with everyone else that the ending was a good fit. However, being the pessimist that I am regarding relationships (and being one that is still single and "hoping" this Christmas), I guess I was picturing a different conclusion. Oh well. I'm just being scrooge so don't mind me, because this was a great story. I really enjoyed the writing style you used. :)
