Just for Christmas by Scarlett Bailey

Lovereading view...

The next in her delicious feel-good and warm Christmas series has a jaded Alex up urban sticks and move into a small community in Cornwall. There is lots going on, strong characters to meet, an old dog with attitude to contend with and a Christmas pageant to become involved in. Naturally her past catches up with her adding complications to her new life. This is a glorious curl-up-and-fall-in-love-with stuff. A lovely read.

Just for Christmas by Scarlett Bailey

Her best friend's wedding...When Alex Munro learns that the love of her life is getting married to another girl, all she wants is to be alone - and as far away from Edinburgh as possible. Moving to a Cornish cottage, which comes complete with the world's scruffiest dog, Alex finds that her new neighbours are determined to involve her in their madcap Christmas festivities. Then she meets her sexy neighbour Ruan - and somehow Alex doesn't want to be alone this Christmas after all. But having lost one fiance, Ruan has no intention of letting anyone get close to him again...
