Today is my stop on the blog tour for the fabulously Christmassy – The Best Little Christmas Shop by Maxine Morrey and I am delighted to be one of the bloggers launching the tour!
Come home for Christmas to the Best Little Christmas Shop – the snowiest, cosiest place you can be!
Home for the holidays…
Icing gingerbread men, arranging handmade toys and making up countless Christmas wreaths in her family’s cosy little Christmas shop isn’t usually globe-trotter Lexi’s idea of fun. But it’s all that’s keeping her mind off romance. And, with a broken engagement under her belt, she’s planning to stay well clear of that for the foreseeable future…until gorgeous single dad Cal Martin walks through the door!
Christmas takes on a whole new meaning as Lexi begins to see it through Cal’s adorable five-year-old son’s eyes. But, finding herself getting dangerously close to the mistletoe with Cal, Lexi knows she needs to back off. She’s sworn off love, and little George needs a stability she can’t provide. One day she’ll decide whether to settle down again – just not yet.
But the best little Christmas shop in this sleepy, snow-covered village has another surprise in store…
I absolutely adored this book!!! It was soooo good that I think I might try and read it again before Christmas, it allowed me to escape from the mundane day to day and I became wrapped upon the story. I loved the writing style which flowed so well through the story and helped bring it all to life. The characters were brilliant and the interaction between them really made the book for me – it is most certainly a book I’m going to be recommending to friends and family – it has definitely been a highlight of my Christmas reading so far in 2017!! 5stars from me – loved it!!
About Maxine Morrey
Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten. Coming in first, she won a handful of book tokens – perfect for a bookworm! As years went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a book on Brighton for a Local History publisher. However, novels are what she loves writing the most. After self publishing her first novel when a contract fell through, thanks to the recession, she continued to look for opportunities. In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her romantic comedy, ‘Winter’s Fairytale’. Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read sew and listen to podcasts. As she also likes cake she can also be found either walking or doing something vaguely physical at the gym.
