This yuletide collection follows hot on the heels of her first published anthology Riding Pillion with George Clooney. While Christmas comes but once a year, these moving and humorous tales will stay with you for a lifetime.
My Review; This is a collection of short christmas stories and each is very different in many way. Perfect for readers who don’t have much time. My favourite story had to be the dog shelter one, who doesn’t love dogs? Some stories are longer than others but all are perfect. A nice easy, cosy and relaxing read full of beautiful stories. Highly recommend for the run up to Christmas. A well deserved four star from me.
