‘Tis the season for mulled wine, mince pies, and magic under the mistletoe…
Flora loves Christmas more than anything else in the world, so she’s gutted when her Scrooge-alike boss fires her from Deck the Halls Christmas emporium. But now she finally has a chance to follow her dreams – and what better place to start than the home of Christmas?
Before she can say ‘sleigh bells’, Flora’s on her way to Lapland in a campervan-cum-Christmas-shop. She can’t wait to spend her days drinking hot chocolate and taking reindeer-drawn carriage rides, but something Flora didn’t expect was meeting Connor, a Norse god of a man who makes her heart flutter and snowflakes swirl in her stomach. There’s just one problem: Connor hates Christmas.
Can Flora convince Connor of the joys of Christmas – and will she find a festive romance along the way?

Oh my goodness! I think I have just completely fell in love; with vanlife, Lapland, Flora and of course Noel. This novel gave me sheer joy and I devoured it by reading in 2 sittings.
I love Rebecca’s books and Little Bookshop on the Seine is one of my all time favourites but Flora’s Travelling Christmas Shop definitely gives it a run for its money. I just loved the whole vibe of the novel and soaked up every little morsel.
Flora is such a brilliant character and I cannot decide if I want to be her and experience life through her Christmassy eyes or if I want to be her best friend so that I can enjoy every bonkers moment (without having to clear up some of the mess left behind). She is a big-hearted woman and an absolute Christmas fanatic but in a very adorable way. She will stand up for people and often says what she is thinking which gets her into trouble, and some amusing situations.
I loved the friendship between Livvy and Flora. It was lovely how much Livvy accepted Flora for who she was and gave her gentle nudges so she could fulfil her dreams and her potential and find happiness. I also found myself chucking away at some of the interactions between flora and Connor (as well as other characters).
This novel has some serious festive vibes – where better to set it than Lapland. There’s the ultimate Christmas market, a cute little van and a giant gingerbread castle. But the question is…will she find her Hallmark happy ending? Ill leave it to you to find out – and you need to because this is a fun, festive novel you don’t want to miss.
