Holly, a widow, is looking for a quiet Christmas away from festivities and so is Jude whose brother has run off with his fiancee. They both end up in the same village, which soon after they arrive is cut off by a snow storm. Can romance ensue? Trisha writes with great comedy and a down-to-earth humour that will appeal to any reader who wants a feel-good book to curl up with on those long winter evenings in particular.
Twelve Days of Christmas by Trisha Ashley
Christmas has always been a sad time for young widow Holly Brown, so when she's asked to look after a remote house on the Lancashire moors, the opportunity to hide herself away is irresistible -- the perfect excuse to forget about the festivities. Sculptor, Jude Martland, is determined that this year there will be no Christmas after his brother runs off with his fiancee and he is keen to avoid the family home. However, he will have to return by the twelfth night of the festivities, when the hamlet of Little Mumming hold their historic festivities and all of his family are required to attend. Meanwhile, Holly is finding that if she wants to avoid Christmas, she has come to the wrong place. When Jude unexpectedly returns on Christmas Eve he is far from delighted to discover that Holly seems to be holding the very family party he had hoped to avoid. Suddenly, the blizzards come out of nowhere and the whole village is snowed in. With no escape, Holly and Jude get much more than they bargained for -- it looks like the twelve days of Christmas are going to be very interesting indeed!
