Put your feet up, tuck into a mince pie and enjoy this treat-sized piece of festive fiction. For fans of Jenny Colgan and Lisa Jewell.
It's 27th December, and Julia is thinking about Christmas, and the cosy, relaxed days she spent with her best friend, Toby. Maybe it was just the magic of Christmas, or maybe it was just her, but was there a frisson of something else between them?
After ten years of friendship, and a couple of near-misses, is Julia coming to realise that true love might have been under her nose all along? Most importantly, does Toby feel the same?
Well written, believable characters and a good plot. I am a big fan of this writer! - Katie Fforde
This feels like grown up chick-lit, dealing with substantial concepts, believable, fallible characters and shot through with emotionally intelligent analysis . . . Brilliantly written. - Daily Mail
A pure delight . . . beautifully handled with some unexpected, humorous and emotional moments, all thrown into a fast-moving plot. I loved it. - Lovereading.co.uk
An enjoyable romantic comedy with some entertaining twists. - Sunday Mirror
