A December to remember…
Christmas in a Cornish castle? Sign Ivy Starforth up! Hired to kit out the holiday rental as the world’s most Instagramable festive dreamland, there’s only one thing standing in the way of her hefty paycheque – the lord of the manor.
Bill Markham could give Scrooge a run for his money but Ivy is firmly #TeamChristmas…even if her handsome host seems to be doing everything he can to sabotage her staging. Maybe she shouldn’t have stumbled in on him starkers in the hot tub?
As the temperature outside cools, things inside the castle heat up. It’s been a long time since Ivy allowed herself to give in to temptation…surely one little kiss under the mistletoe won’t hurt?
You know the saying…..Christmas hasn’t started until you’ve seen the castle’s resident hunk naked in a hot tub.
Well it’s now official – Christmas has began!
Ivy is hired by a friend to dress a Cornish castle ready for a spectacular and social media worthy Christmas party. Upon arrival she is greeted by the hot tub hunk – Will (Bill) who happens to be a blast from the past. But a lot has changed since they last met. Ivy has been through a lot and isn’t really willing to share her heartbreak with anyone. Bill also seems to be keeping something back. As they both try to play it cool, will Christmas in the castle melt their hearts?
This novel is simple Christmassy goodness wrapped in sparkly paper and finished with a huge sparkling bow.
The main characters of Ivy and Bill are both frustratingly adorable and although at times I wanted to throttle them both, I was rooting for them all the way. My heart broke for Ivy in places but it was hard to stay that way when the plot was so heartwarming.
Because the novel is about Ivy (with Bill begrudgingly helping) transforming a run down and soulless building into a cosy festive home, it really put me in the mood. I loved being part of the transformation and moving form a dreary and drab environment into something magical.
With humour, animal antics, a swarm of highly entertaining characters and romance – this book has everything you need for a charming and cosy festive romance.
Author Bio – Jane Linfoot
Jane Linfoot is a best selling author, who lives in a cottage on a Derbyshire hillside with her family and their pets. Although she loves seeing cow noses over the garden wall, she’s happy she can walk to a supermarket.
Jane grew up in North Yorkshire where she spent a lot of her childhood avoiding horizontal gales blowing off the sea and wrote her first book by accident. While she loves to write feel good books that let readers escape, she’s always surprised to hear her stories make people laugh, admits to (occasionally) crying as she writes, and credits her characters for creating their own story lines.
Jane’s garden would be less brambly if she wasn’t on Facebook and Twitter so often. On days when she wants to be really scared, she rides a tandem.
Her recent stand alone novels are all set in and around the (imaginary) seaside village of St Aidan in Cornwall. They are: Ivy’s Cornish Christmas, Edie’s Browne’s Cottage by the Sea, The Little Cornish Kitchen. Her four book Little Wedding Shop series are standalone stories, also set in St Aidan. They are: The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea, Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop, Summer at the Little Wedding Shop and Christmas Promises at the Little Wedding Shop. They are all published by the Harper Impulse and One More Chapter imprints of Harper Collins.
