Fireside, Festive Reads – Books to cosy up with.


bookending winter


I love nothing more in the winter that cosying up in my pyjamas with a hot drink (occasionally replaced by wine) and a good festive/seasonal romance novel.  Here are some of my favourites – some new and some older.



This has to be one of my favourite ever romance novels and Christmas plays a really big part.  It’s the story of two lonely but wonderful people, a wrong number and a town in need of some high street help.  Check out my full review here.



I only finished this at the weekend but I loved it.  Set mainly in Norway, the scenery and setting is beautifully described.  A story of young instagram stars madly in love and travelling the world together.  There’s a little suspense in there too giving this story more depth and a chill factor.  Check out my full review here.



I just love all the Sue Watson books that I have read and this one was really magical.  Recently single Jen embarks on a girls ski trip to the Swiss Alps.  There she meets ski instructor Jon Zutter.  Can the magic of the alps mend Jen’s broken heart?



Feeling like a disaster all her life, Fiona escapes her usual Christmas and travels to the village of Pooley where she had been left on a doorstep as a baby.  In an attempt to track down her biological parents, Fiona finds a place she fits, with new friends and the possibility of love.



Since moving to New York from the Cotswolds, Cleo has been running the family knitting store, until a letter arrives tipping her world upside down.

Dylan is trying to mend his broken heart and broken family after finding himself as a single dad.

Can they find love together?



After the ending of her engagement and quitting her job, Lexi moves home to stay with her large and lovable family and help run their seasonal shop.  She throws herself into all things festive until the handsome and enigmatic Cal walks into the store.



Rosie is an English girl in New York, running her florist shop and keeping her heart well and truly hidden away.  With an ensemble of lovable friends around her, can Rosie find her true love this Christmas?


Let me know if you have read any of these or if you decide to read one.
