The Great Christmas Knit Off by Alexandra Brown

Don’t be at all put off by the title of this festive read, as you don’t need to know anything about knitting in order to enjoy The Great Christmas Knit Off by Alexandra Brown. The book begins with an introduction to protagonist Sybil’s disappointing life in London, where she works for the council housing association in a job she doesn’t enjoy, returning home to her beloved Scottie dog, Basil. A few months ago, Sybs was jilted at the alter by her ex, Luke, who decided to run off with her…

Santa's secret

Santa’s Secret is a warm and sexy Christmas novella that will definitely get you in the festive spirit. Set in Finland in a Christmas holiday village (I so want to go there!), you’ve got Santa, reindeer and the Northern Lights. There is a slight cheesiness go it, for example our heroine is called Eva, and is regularly referred to by the hero as his ‘Christmas Eva’ and wait for it… the hero is called Rudolph, yes Rudolph. Rudi (thankfully) for short. Our hero and heroine are both single parents, both…

Ooh it’s Christmas morning, one of my favourite days of the year. I hope Santa has been good to all of you? Every bookworm should at least get one book for Christmas.

Thoughtful Ramblings

Do Kindles Spoil Book Gift Giving at Christmas? I should start this article by saying I love my Kindle. In fact, I bloody love my Kindle. I can’t remember the last time I bought a physical book, because it’s just so easy with the evil awesome one-click button. But also for me storage it such an issue, I have so many books I’ve had to resort to storing some in my loft. Ebooks take away this problem entirely. But as I am present wrapping and getting everything ready for Christmas,…

Dying for Christmas by Tammy Cohen

Taking a break from Christmas romances, I got hooked by the striking cover of Dying for Christmas by Tammy Cohen. I hadn’t read a Christmas thriller before but, after reading this one, my expectations are definitely high. Cohen manages to make Christmas scary, with a kidnapping saga that leaves you questioning what is really happening. The saga begins with Jessica Gold doing her Christmas shopping at the last minute on Christmas Eve. When taking a much needed break in a department store café, she is approached by a charming stranger…
