Lovely stories, great narrator.

This is a lovely listen - nice stories and a wonderful narrator. She even sang the Gaelic Christmas carol! And this book is so cheap right now. Perfect for the run up to Christmas. Go for it!

Heartwarming

This was a wonderful anthology of heartwarming Christmas stories tied together by the premise of Lady Holly's Last Chance Christmas Ball. I loved each and every story and was so sorry to reach the end. All of the authors are fabulous writers.

Claxton did a good job narrating. I love her accent, and her voice is very soothing. She did both the female and male characters' voices very well. I will look for other books she's narrated.

Excellent and Enjoyable!

Where does The Last Chance Christmas Ball rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top 25. Excellent narration by Elaine Claxton and the short stories that are woven together around a Christmas Ball. I enjoyed all but one of the short stories. I like how each author connected their story line from the previous story. Made for a seamless listen. Really a pleasant Christmas story. No explicit sex scenes, which was really nice.

The Last Chance Ball

Beautifully narrated by Elaine Claxton, this anthology is filled with several different novellas all built around Miss Holly's "last chance ball". Each story highlighted characters who met and fell in love with someone else invited to the ball. I enjoyed listening to the audio version of this book since the narration was so splendid and these are some of my favorite authors. It was a wonderful Christmas diversion when I took breaks from all the hustle and bustle of this time of year.

Wonderful, charming collection

This is my favourite ever collection of Christmas short stories. I like the way they intertwine, and each story manages to have a different type of romance. It's a pleasure I suspect I will keep repeating every year.
