Christmas and romance are in the air…
It’s December 23rd and while everyone else is rushing home for the holidays, workaholic Leesa Oliver is dreading switching on her out-of-office for the festive season. And it seems her equally driven boss, Cary Anderson, isn’t relishing spending Christmas at his family’s country estate either.
So together, they draft an unexpected Christmas contract: They’ll spend half of the holidays with each other’s families, pretending to be a couple. Leesa knows the insufferably good-looking Cary will make her Christmas more bearable, but what happens after the last of the mince pies have been eaten…?
Leesa signed off on a sensible business agreement, but somewhere, amongst the fairy lights and carols something seems to have changed… It seems there might just be some magic under the mistletoe this Christmas!

Leesa has been working on a producing a video for a company owned by Cary and they are both n their way back from Australia from Australia after a heavy working schedule. Christmas is days away but neither are relishing the thoughts of being at home over the festive period. Stranded in Cardiff, they resign themselves to having a stay over at Cary’s family manor and whilst there they make an agreement to spend time with each family under the pretense that they are actually a couple. During this time they grow closer and realise that maybe there is more than a business arrangement to their relationship.
This is one of those novels that you pick up to read a little of one afternoon and then suddenly get to the end and realise it’s dark outside. It’s brilliant if you are in the mood to devour and festive, heartwarming romance.
The plot is very character driven and both main characters have some past issues that affect how the relationship develops. Leesa’s background story deals with some deep issues and these are tackled in a gentle and sensitive way by the author. As the book spans a year and we slowly find out about aspects of each main character’s life, it was easy to fall in love with both Cary and Leesa and to understand their approach and perspective on relationships.
This is such a cosy, heartwarming novel that left me with festive cheer and a big grin after reading.
