This year I’ve embraced the idea of Christmas books and these are few newly released to 2020 that have caught my attention…
// Finding Love At The Christms Market by Jo Thomas //
Residential-home caterer Connie has had one online-dating disaster too many. But then one of her residents sets her up on a date at a German Christmas Market, with the promise she takes a bus full of pensioners with her.
I love a Christmas market, and seeing as there won’t be any this year, this is a good substitute.
// A Season In The Snow by Isla Gordon //
Alice loves her life, her career and her friends. But when tragedy strikes, bringing with it Bear, a rapidly growing puppy, it turns Alice’s world upside down.
Finding a London flat isn’t suitable for a dog like Bear, she lets him push her out of her comfort zone and they move to his homeland, the moutains of Switzerland.
// In A Holidaze by Christina Lauren //
The queens of romance have answered our Christmas wishes and have released a festive read! And it sounds epic.
Mae is feeling low after spending her Christmas at her favourite log cabin in Utah for the last time. But on the way home she’s in a car accident and when she wakes she finds herself on the plane bound for Utah and finds she has tot start the same holiday all over again. Sound a bit like groundhog day, and I am here for it!
// The Winter Garden by Heidi Swain //
I’ve heard a lot about Heidi Swain’s Christmas books, and I think this year will be the year I finally read one.
Freyer is estranged from her family and has been following her dream of being a gardener ever since. When she gets the opportunity to design a Winter garden she jumps at the chance. But local artist Finn is making her feel anything but welcome.
// One Family Christmas by Bella Osborne //
This books sounds like a Christmas filled with family drama, which I’m sure we can all relate to.
Lottie is hosting Christmas for the first time at the old family home. But when everyone starts arriving, it becomes clear everyone has a secret and tensions start to rise.
// Together By Christmas by Karen Swan //
Lee first arrived in Amsterdam with a baby and a secret. Five years later her life is settled there, with a career in photography and a son who’s growing up.
They’re looking forward to spending Christmas together with their circle of tight-knit friends. All this changes when Lee finds a book in her biscicles basket with a desperate message inside, and she feels compelled to find them.
// Christmas Wishes by Sue Moorcroft //
Hannah and Nico are meant to be together, but fate has kept them apart.
They become close friends, but Hannah has a boyfriend and Nico has two kids to look after. When Hannah loses her shop and is forced to move to a little village, only to find Nico has just moved there to.
Can two childhood friends make romance work over the festive season?
// The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss //
Kate is content with being single. In her small village, the prospects aren’t vast anyway. But then her best friend signs her up to a dating service which promises to help you find love by Christmas.
These definitely aren’t all of the Christmas books released this year, but they’re the ones I’m most interested in. Which are you looking forward to reading?
