Title: A Christmas Kiss
Author: Eliza J Scott
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
My Rating: 5 out of 5
A sparkling festive romance that will warm your heart this Christmas.
The week before Christmas, GP Zander Gillespie finds his festive plans in tatters. He’s supposed to be flying out to his parents’ chateau in Carcassonne with his high-maintenance girlfriend, Melissa. But she has other ideas. She wants to spend Christmas in London with her party friends – and he’s not invited. The prospect of facing his family, with their questions and their sympathy – not to mention the ‘I told you so-s’ – just isn’t an option. Instead, Zander decides to head to his holiday cottage in the quaint moorland village of Lytell Stangdale, where he intends to hide away with his faithful rescue Labrador Alf.
Eighty miles away, Livvie’s world has come crashing down. With plans to cook a romantic meal for her boyfriend, she heads home early and walks in on him in a compromising position with their neighbour. Fed-up of his lies and philandering ways, this is the final straw. With her Christmas plans up in smoke, the thought of spending it with her parents and her smug, married sister with her pompous husband in tow, is enough to bring Livvie out in hives. So, when she fires up her laptop and finds the perfect little holiday cottage in Lytell Stangdale available to rent over the festive period, it seems the perfect solution. Or is it…?
Zander didn’t believe in love at first sight until he set eyes on Livvie. Livvie had sworn off men until she met Zander. The pair may be reluctant to give in to temptation, but fate seems to have other ideas…
Join Livvie and Zander – and all the usual characters – for a magical Christmas in Lytell Stangdale.
The perfect cosy read to snuggle up with this Christmas
I really loved this book
I totally loved how we are introduced to both the characters of Zander and Livvie straight away and how they are both going through personal struggles in their lives – I was wondering at the start of the story how they would meet and the circumstances of them finding each other, but I was really surprised by how this happened.
We get to know the characters of Zander and Livvie and as the reader we know that they have both been going through tough times. They are thrown together at Christmas time under very unusual circumstances – whilst they are both trying to escape from their ‘normal’ lives. I loved watching their relationship grow and how the more they get to know each other, the stronger their feelings for each other are.
A Christmas Kiss is an absolutely lovely read that gives you a wonderful festive and cosy feeling. I didn’t want to get to the end of the story. Eliza Scott has written such a fun, romantic and festive book. I can absolutely recommend reading A Christmas Kiss. For sure you will be left with that cosy and Christmassy feeling.
