Snowy rooftops, mulled wine, and a hot single dad. Not the Christmas Saffy wished for… but maybe the one she needs?

Twenty-nine year old Saffron Baxter knew her holiday plans didn’t stand a chance the moment her sister called to say she was stuck abroad with no hope of being home before Christmas. Saffy would just have to abandon thoughts of wild festive parties in the city and head down to remote Cornwall.

Because every year her sister hosts a huge Christmas meal for all the single parents in her village. And Saffy knows it’d break her heart to let them down.

Arriving as snow starts to fall over the thatched cottages of the little harbour town of Port Breok, she meets Logan – the tall, fair-haired, blue-eyed, devoted single dad who lives next door, with his adorable daughter Chloe. At first she thinks he might help her make Christmas Day extra-memorable, but he just seems convinced she’ll never manage – that she’s just a party girl who doesn’t care about Christmas, or anyone’s feelings.

Maybe he’s right. After all – she doesn’t want to settle down, she’s only there for a few days… But she’s still determined to do her sister proud with gorgeous decorations, the most beautiful real tree – complete with extra twinkly lights, and delicious mince pies. To make it a Christmas everyone will remember, especially little Chloe. Even if, when the mistletoe comes down, she knows she’ll probably never see Logan again…

A pure pleasure to devour this book, I just didn't want it to end, I was enjoying it so much.  

Karen King has written a wonderful Christmas book, set in Cornwall, with a new love on the cards,  big declarations of love, a Christmas party for all the local single parents and their children,  tree decorating, polar bear onesies, snow and just a huge helping of festive goodwill and cheer. 

Saffy is Hannah's younger sister and doesn't visit her as often as she should, is more of a career girl, so when Saffy is asked to run the Christmas party and Hannah's hotel her first instinct is to refuse. But once she agrees and we see just how Christmas mad, Saffy is I start to think its a very good thing, and shows a whole new side of her. 

We are also introduced to Logan and his young daughter Chloe and they are a huge part of this wonderful story, and Chloe very quickly found her way into my heart too. She is adorable.  

This is a really sweet story with so many good parts, that its best for you to discover them for yourselves.  Definitely my new favourite book from Karen King, I found this quick and enjoyable to read, and it passed my ultimate test of, me not having the foggiest where I was on the tube journey, while I was reading it, which is normally a great indicator of how absorbed I am. 

Snowy Nights at the Lonely Hearts Hotel would not look out of place on any Christmas reads TBR this year, its that good. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily,
