'What a wonderful uplifting tale' *****
'Perfect . . . Heartily recommended' *****

As with so many things in Kitty Appleby's life, falling in love with Sandcastle Cottage, in the seaside village of Firefly Common, on a bitterly cold day, was a monumental mistake. Kitty doesn't need to move. Kitty is perfectly happy with her nice home, her dependable boyfriend and her steady job in Reading.

Or so she thinks . . .

But three weeks before Christmas, with the snow forecast to be thundering in from Siberia, Kitty suddenly has none of these things.

As Kitty and her increasing band of waifs and strays find themselves desperately seeking somewhere to rent, they can only hope that somewhere, someone might feel moved by the spirit of Christmas . . .
