Kicking off this cold and frosty Friday by celebrating publication day and sharing my 5* review for the wonderfully festive – The Perfect Christmas Gift by Katie Ginger

My Review

Wow what a read! I am an absolute sucker for a festive read and this one is right up on my favourites of the year so far. Ooozing with romance, Christmas traditions and of course hot chocolate it is the perfect story to get you in the Christmas spirit.

When we initially meet heartbroken Bella you wonder how this story is going to become a heartwarming story as she is totally desolate. However Katie Ginger has weaved her wonderful magic again with vivid descriptions to make the story jump off the pages. I have literally picked this book back up again everytime I’ve sat down as I’ve loved reading about Bella, Nick and Freddie and was desperate to see how it would all come together as the story progressed.

A heartwarming love story that made me laugh and left me feeling emotional as I neared the last pages. I truly love Christmas and the family time and traditions are so important and this is woven into the very fabric of this story and the compassion and kindness on these pages are a wonderful reminder to always remember we don’t know what someone else is dealing with

Book Blurb

Can neighbours become more than just good friends this Christmas?

Bella Moore is excitedly counting down the days to Christmas. That is until she arrives home one evening to find her boyfriend leaving her for another woman. Completely heartbroken, Bella is left wondering if Christmas can still be the same this year.

Next door, Bella’s neighbour Nick is facing his first Christmas as a single dad and doubting whether he can make it the magical time his son Freddie deserves.

Determined to fix both Christmas and their broken hearts, Bella comes up with an idea: a Christmas giving tree for the whole village, where the community can unite and secretly give each other the Christmas presents they truly need.

As Bella becomes chief elf, taking donations and delivering gifts with much-needed help from Nick and Freddie, the two neighbours grow closer and start seeing each other in a whole new light.

But when Nick’s estranged wife returns just before Christmas, is their budding romance over before it’s begun? Or will love be Nick and Bella’s perfect gift this Christmas?

KATIE GINGER lives by the sea in the south-east of England, and apart from holidays to very hot places where you can sit by a pool and drink cocktails as big your head, she wouldn’t really want to be anywhere else. The Perfect Christmas Gift is Katie’s eighth novel. She was shortlisted for the Katie Fforde Debut Novel of the Year award for her first novel The Little Theatre on the Seafront.

When she’s not writing, Katie spends her time with her husband and two kids, and their dogs: Wotsit, the King Charles spaniel, and Skips, the three-legged Romanian rescue dog. (And yes, they are both named after crisps!)



I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
