#bookreview The Little Christmas House by Tracy Rees

Synopsis:

In gorgeous Hopley village snow is falling and twinkly lights are going up but Holly Hanwell feels anything but Christmassy…

It’s meant to be the most wonderful time of the year butthirty-year-old Holly Hanwell doesn’t really feel like celebrating… not after the bombshell news her boyfriend is leaving her to have a baby with someone else. So Holly’s organised a quiet Christmas in her cosy little house and plans to avoid the traditional village festivities, and anything resembling a man, at all costs. 

That is until she bumps into sexy newcomer Edward. He recently bought Christmas House, at the edge of Hopley, but the renovations on the crumbling building are more than he’d bargained for. Sheltering from the snowy weather in the warm village café, Edward makes Holly laugh over delicious mugs of hot chocolate, topped with cream and sprinkles. Despite the spark between them, Holly knows she needs to protect her already fragile heart and she’s determined NOT to fall in love this Christmas.

My reading experience:

Firstly I would like to thank the author, publisher and Netgalley for my free ARC.

Christmas House is a place where a young man and his daughter go to heal, and start a new life. What they end up doing is giving new life to this run down home, and at the same time, find warmth and generosity all around them. Filled with characters perfect for this wintery tale, this story provides feel-good factor in abundance. When the chips are down I’ll be looking to this author for the same comfort again.

I highly recommend this seasonal tale by Tracy Rees.
