My Review of Secret Santa by Scarlett Bailey

 
As always, I was thrilled to learn that my festive favourite Scarlett Bailey has a new Christmas book out! Eager to learn what was in store for the wonderful folks in Poldore, I dived in straight away!
 
What They Say:
 
A self-confessed Christmas queen, Sue Montaigne prides herself on organising the annual nativity pageant in her small Cornish village of Poldore.

But this year, what with having to deal with the repairs on Castle House after it was wrecked by a terrible storm, training a new – and frankly flighty – Virgin Mary and managing a Joseph who is allergic to sheep, she is distinctly lacking a little bit of ‘me time’.

And then there are the auditions for the new Santa. But nothing prepares her for the beautiful man who turns up, a twinkle in his eye and a promise to make her Christmas dreams come true…

What I Say:

Scarlett has never let me down! Her books are always perfection. This is a bite sized treat, ideal for snuggling up with a hot chocolate on a cold winter night,

Once again, the characters in Poldore are on form with plenty of laughs, lots of love and tons of Christmas cheer. We also meet a couple of new characters, Blake, the Hollywood movie star (sigh...) and Nick (a bit bonkers but lovely!).

Sue learns an important lesson in Secret Santa, never judge a book by its' cover. I'm so glad Blake arrived. He added a hint of glamour, some smouldering sexiness and made me (and Sue) swoon just a little. Nick also taught Sue a lesson, you're never too old for Christmas wishes. These are things a lot of people forget and it was lovely to read.

I adore Scarlett's books and this novella was no exception! If you've never read one, DO! She's just so damn good! Always warm, funny, a little cheeky and so, so lovely!

A hot chocolate hug of a story! 10/10

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!


What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
