A wonderful new uplifting Christmas story from Kathryn Freeman to put you in the festive mood. Highly recommended.

Would you swap sea and sunshine for tinsel and turkey?
Gabby Sanderson is used to being let down – even at Christmas. Which is why she’s happy to skip the festive season completely in favour of a plane ticket and sunnier climes.

But this Christmas could be different, because this time she might not be spending it alone. Can Owen Cooper charm Gabby into loving Christmas in the same way he’s charmed his way into her life, or is he just another person who’ll end up disappointing her?

Linked to A Little Christmas Faith but can be read as a standalone.

It is always a delight to start a new Kathryn Freeman book, and this was no exception.  It was so romantic, with clear chemistry between the two leads and a story that developed and became so much more than it first appeared as it progressed. 

I warmed to Owen from the moment we met him, he is an incredibly charming man and he knows it, but hits useful for his job in sales.  However it is soon apparent he has a certain vulnerability to him too which just adds to his overall appeal. 

Whereas Gabby took a bit to grow on me, mainly because she doesn't seem to be a fan of Christmas. But as you discover her reasons why, and see how the grows throughout the book I found myself loving her more and more. 

With the way the book started, and the instant connection from the characters whether they were acknowledging it or not, I did worry that perhaps this was going to be a slightly different sort of book than I was expecting with many hot and heavy scenes, but what we actually get  is to hear more about the characters and their families. 

Easily all the best bits came in the second half of the book so I can't really tell you about them but rest assured you are in for a treat.  As the blurb says there is a connection to A Little Christmas Faith and I spent most of the book wondering if I was missing a link until I found it.  

Rest assured you don't need to have read A Little Christmas Faith in order to enjoy this one,  its there clearly for her fans, but if you weren't aware of it you wouldn't realise.  This is not a sequel in any normal sense of the word.  

What is is, is a wonderfully charming story, that had me hooked and I was devouring it,  It is a lovely addition to any Christmas book lover's kindle this festive season. 

Thank you to Choc Lit for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
