Title: A Little Christmas Hope
Author: Kathryn Freeman
Genre: Contemporary Romance
My Rating: 5 out of 5
Newly promoted head teacher Anna Dalton needs a Christmas miracle – and fast! After years of sitting through excruciatingly dull Christmas productions, complete with crying children and sleeping parents, she’s determined Riddlescomb Primary School will put on a Nativity to remember.
Enter bad boy actor Dan Ramsey, recently axed from the lead role in a TV drama and in desperate need of cleaning up his image or he’ll never work again.
Dan can flash those heart-stopping dimples all he likes, Anna tells herself she isn’t going to fall for them. She knows why he’s decided to volunteer at the school, and it’s for the good of his career…not his soul.
But as Anna and Dan are forced to work together for the sake of a truly magical Christmas for the children, sparks fly and they can’t help but wonder what will happen once the festive season is over…
I knew I was going to love this book – Kathryn Freeman has fast become one of my favourite authors. Having read Up Close and Personal, The New Guy and Strictly Come Dating, and LOVED them all, I just knew that A Little Christmas Hope was going to be amazing – and I wasn’t wrong!
Actor, Dan Ramsey has just been axed from the long running TV drama he has become famous for. He need to clean up his act and his reputation, or he knows he will never find another role again. His agent, and good friend, Pete, comes up with an idea that he hopes will help. He wants Dan to give acting lessons to students at Riddlescomb Primary School – that will score home browns points on the reputation front surely.
There maybe just one small problem with the plan – headteacher Anna Dalton. Anna is not a fool and she knows that Dan is only volunteering to help his career – its going to take a lot to win her over. As the two of them start getting to know each other, the chemistry between them is electric. Soon enough Dan has not only agreed to give acting lessons, but also agreed to write and help put on the school Nativity play. Anna is a widow with a beautiful young daughter. Dan has recently gone through a divorce and sadly doesn’t have a very good relationship with his younger son.
Will there be Christmas Chemistry?
As the Nativity play preparations gather pace, so too does the chemistry between Anna and Dan. Can their relationship stay professional, or will they both give into the obvious temptation of each other? I did not want this story to end. I loved everything about A Little Christmas Hope – Kathryn Freeman really is such an incredible writer.
A Little Christmas Hope is probably my favourite book I have read this year. Heartwarming, funny, emotional, packed full of love, fun and chemistry. Oh, and a real-life sheep called Shaun in the Nativity play! Festive reading perfection.
