It’s the most wonderful time of the year in Penmenna…
Teaching assistant Alice has sworn off men, which is fine because with Christmas coming she’s super busy organising the school Nativity. This should be a blast with the help of close friend and village vicar, Dan – if she can ignore those more-than-just-a-friend feelings she’s developed for him…
Dan is happy to help Alice – his secret crush – but not only is his beloved Granny Annie about to be made homeless, the church choir has disintegrated and he’s battling some dark demons from his past.
With meddling grannies and PTA wars thrown in the mix, can Alice and Dan overcome their past hurts to move forward? Will they be spending Christmas together as friends… or something more?
A festive feel-good romance perfect for fans of Tilly Tennant and Holly Martin.
This was a book I knew I was going to enjoy from its first few pages – the writing style is simply lovely, light and engaging, a well-drawn setting, the dialogue perfectly captured, the humour elements absolutely spot-on (and sometimes a delightful surprise), the characters just perfect in every way... immensely satisfying, gloriously Christmassy, and an absolute joy to read.'
