Today I am excited to be sharing my review for A Christmas Kiss by Eliza J Scott, this was my first book by this author and what a corker to start with. I read this as a stand alone book and now want to read the previous books, I loved meeting these wonderful characters in the lovely moorland village of Lytell Stangdale.

Livvie is a bubbly character loooking to escape her current life and seek refuge for a quiet Christmas where she doesn’t know anyone. What she is expecting when she books her last minute trip to Lytell Stangdale and what happens turn out to be very different, when she encounters Zander and his lovely rescue Labrador Alf.

I loved this book from the first few pages and the array of vibrant personalities scattered throughout this festive read just jumped off the pages. I can’t believe this was my first book by this author and I can’t wait to read more as I quickly fell in love with the characters and was eager to keep reading.

A sparkling festive romance that will warm your heart this Christmas.

The week before Christmas, GP Zander Gillespie finds his festive plans in tatters. He’s supposed to be flying out to his parents’ chateau in Carcassonne with his high-maintenance girlfriend, Melissa. But she has other ideas. She wants to spend Christmas in London with her party friends – and he’s not invited. The prospect of facing his family, with their questions and their sympathy – not to mention the ‘I told you so-s’ – just isn’t an option. Instead, Zander decides to head to his holiday cottage in the quaint moorland village of Lytell Stangdale, where he intends to hide away with his faithful rescue Labrador Alf.

Eighty miles away, Livvie’s world has come crashing down. With plans to cook a romantic meal for her boyfriend, she heads home early and walks in on him in a compromising position with their neighbour. Fed-up of his lies and philandering ways, this is the final straw. With her Christmas plans up in smoke, the thought of spending it with her parents and her smug, married sister with her pompous husband in tow, is enough to bring Livvie out in hives. So, when she fires up her laptop and finds the perfect little holiday cottage in Lytell Stangdale available to rent over the festive period, it seems the perfect solution. Or is it…?

Zander didn’t believe in love at first sight until he set eyes on Livvie. Livvie had sworn off men until she met Zander. The pair may be reluctant to give in to temptation, but fate seems to have other ideas…

Join Livvie and Zander – and all the usual characters – for a magical Christmas in Lytell Stangdale.

The perfect cosy read to snuggle up with this Christmas

#Review Today I am excited to share my Publication Day review for Starlight over Bluebell Castle by Sarah Bennett

Today I am excited to share my publication day review for the latest visit to Bluebell Castle, where we get to catch up with the triplets again and the progress they are making turning the castle around.

I am loving this series of books and the superb character additions in this book, bring a whole new dimension to the story. When reading about Bluebell castle I feel like Sarah has personally introduced me to each character so I can really connect with them as their story unfolds.

I loved this book and flew through it in a couple of short sittings, I was so keen to see what would happen and if they would get the magical Christmas for their guests that they have been planning. A superb third book in this series that will leave you with a fuzzy feeling and wanting to plan a Christmas trip to a magical castle.

Don’t miss Starlight Over Bluebell Castle, the third book in the delightfully uplifting Bluebell Castle trilogy!

The most magical time of the year…

Jessica Ridley’s life has just been turned upside-down – and not in a good way! So when blast-from-the-past Tristan Ludworth invites her to stay at Bluebell Castle and transform it into a winter wonderland, it’s the perfect distraction for Jess and her two young children…

Jess is used to planning even the most elaborate events in her sleep, but she certainly didn’t expect to be working so closely with Tristan at the castle – or that she could still find him quite  so handsome after all this time!

And with a little holiday magic in the air, it’s becoming harder and harder to resist his charms. Can Tristan convince Jess to give love one more chance, just in time for Christmas?

Sarah Bennett has been reading for as long as she can remember. Raised in a family of bookworms, her love affair with books of all genres has culminated in the ultimate Happy Ever After – getting to write her own stories to share with others.

When not reading or writing, Sarah is a devotee of afternoon naps and sailing the high seas, but only on vessels large enough to accommodate a casino and a choice of restaurants.
