It’s the dream Christmas: snow, mountains… and, er, an ex-boyfriend. But can Zoe still find love in the Alps?
Dumped on Christmas Eve by her long-term boyfriend, it’s been a rough year for Zoe Lumsley. But then she gets an invitation she can’t refuse: an all expenses paid skiing holiday with old university friends.
The bad news: her ex, Grant, will be there with his new girlfriend. But so will her former flatmate Billy, the organiser, and in the meantime he’s done rather well for himself. As Christmas in the Alps approaches, it’ll be great to see the old gang. Some more than others…
I absolutely loved this book – it is my perfect type of feel-good story. We are introduced to the character of Zoe straight away in the storyline. Zoe has just had her heart broken by her (now ex) partner Grant. Grant ends their relationship on Christmas Eve, telling Zoe he has met someone else. It takes Zoe a long time to get over Grant, but just as she feels she is moving on with her life, a surprise invitation could possibly bring her crashing back down again.
Zoe, has been invited, along with several other friends who had shared the same house whilst studying, to an all-expenses paid holiday over the festive period by one of the friends, Billy. Billy has built up a very successful business, and Zoe thinks she would be mad to turn down the all-expenses paid trip, except for one slight problem – her ex, Grant will also be on the trip, oh, and her demanding boss has told her to get an exclusive interview with Billy for the magazine they work for!
I really enjoyed this story, I loved all the characters and getting to know each of them. I especially loved the character of Zoe and following her journey through the story. Dreaming of Christmas is such a heart-warming and light-herted read, and totally perfect for this time of the year – a well-deserved 5 out of 5 from me.
