All Lucy wants to do is avoid Christmas this year after last year’s disaster when she had taken long-term boyfriend Robert to Paris, and her plans had not worked out to be what she had expected, and she had been left broken-hearted.
Lucy soon realises that Christmas is everywhere and she cannot get out of it, so she decides to throw a huge Christmas party, even though it will clash with another significant event. To pay for it she pawns a watch, a gift that was supposed to be for Robert. This leads to a chance meeting with James who works at the shop, and when Lucy’s friend sends party invites to absolutely everyone in Lucy’s email contacts, James is accidently invited to the party, even though they have only just briefly met, the pair decide to go out for a drink and Lucy finds they have a lot in common.
Can James help Lucy forget her Christmas past and to embrace her Christmas present?
I am in the mood for Christmas now! This book is another wonderful, well written, winter, Christmas novella, from author Talli Roland. I really enjoyed it. I thought the story was beautifully put together and as always with Talli Roland books you can expect good humour and an entertaining read, and this book is perfect for this time of year.
