A brilliant new Christmas novel from the Sunday Times bestselling Trisha Ashley will more than satisfy romantic comedy fans looking for the perfect festive read.
Recovering after an illness Meg is far from in the Christmas mood, in fact she’s hardly aware it’s approaching at all. They didn’t celebrate it where she grew up and she’s never gone in for the tinsel, baubles and mistletoe of it all. But when the opportunity arises to spend the run up to Christmas in the snowy countryside, rather than dreary London, she can’t say she isn’t curious… although she’ll definitely leave before they bring out the turkey.
Tasked with painting two portraits in not very much time, Meg sets to work. Although it doesn’t take long for the magic in the air to begin to make her wonder just a little curious about what a proper family Christmas might be like.
But just as she’s beginning to settle in she spots a familiar face. Lex… more like a missile than a blast from the past. Despite the wonderful festive cheer, Meg suddenly wants nothing more than to get as far away from Lex and their past secrets as she can. But she can’t leave until she’s finished the portraits and discovered what really is so magical about Christmas…

Every year I look out for the books that are being released so I can make a list of the ones I want to read and after reading the blurb for this one and seeing that stunning cover it was straight on the list – and having read it I have to say it was such a lovely book to read, it is certainly one I will be recommending and I have given it 5 stars!!
I thought that the book has some excellent characters, they were so well developed and I loved their interaction and how their relationships came together as the book progressed too.
I thought it was a real treat to read and I loved every page, there was something happening in each chapter and I was hooked right from the outset – I loved everything about it and the setting is superb!!
