It’s the most wonderful time of the year… but not for Angie Martinelli…
Having lost her boyfriend, job, and apartment all in the space of a week, Angie has no choice but to leave California and return to her family in New England.
Determined not to let life weigh her down, Angie finds work at the local mall where she worked as a teenager. After an embarrassing run-in with a handsome stranger, Nick, she’s convinced her luck is about to change.
But Nick has secrets of his own… and as the first flakes of snow begin to fall, Angie can’t help but wonder if she’ll ever find love.
Festive Romance with Christmas Spirit!
What a lovely Christmas book … just oozing Christmas spirit and oodles of feel-good factor.
Angie has spent the last few years living in the warmth of California; she expected to be there for this festive season too, but then finds herself out of a job, a relationship and a home all within the space of a week. She heads home to her mother in New England, determined to keep her chin up and move on with her life. With no-one rushing to hire her for her talents over the holiday season, she picks up a job at the local mall, and finds herself frequently bumping into a man she first met in an embarrassing situation and can’t deny there is an attraction – but she is determined not to jump out of the frying pan and into the fire . . .
So many people head home for Christmas each year with hopes in their hearts for a peaceful time with their families and this novel capitalises on that. It’s a really good read encompassing all the good things of the season: happiness, sparkle, festive food – albeit with an Italian flavour – family, romance, and a healthy dose of Christmas spirit! Beautifully written, with plenty of ups and downs to keep interest, this flows really well and is an easy and enjoyable read – and one I immersed myself in. I do love a Christmas romance, and this one fits the bill perfectly. A well-penned novel which will appeal to all those who like to bury themselves in Christmas reads at this – or any other – time of year, and well worth the four stars I’m happy to give it.
