Genre: Romantic Comedy / Fiction

Publication Date: 3rd November 2017

Come home for Christmas to the Best Little Christmas Shop – the snowiest, cosiest place you can be!

Home for the holidays…

Icing gingerbread men, arranging handmade toys and making up countless Christmas wreaths in her family’s cosy little Christmas shop isn’t usually globe-trotter Lexi’s idea of fun. But it’s all that’s keeping her mind off romance. And, with a broken engagement under her belt, she’s planning to stay well clear of that for the foreseeable future…until gorgeous single dad Cal Martin walks through the door!

Christmas takes on a whole new meaning as Lexi begins to see it through Cal’s adorable five-year-old son’s eyes. But, finding herself getting dangerously close to the mistletoe with Cal, Lexi knows she needs to back off. She’s sworn off love, and little George needs a stability she can’t provide. One day she’ll decide whether to settle down again – just not yet.

But the best little Christmas shop in this sleepy, snow-covered village has another surprise in store…

About Maxine Morrey

Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten. Coming in first, she won a handful of book tokens – perfect for a bookworm! As years went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, aswell as a book on Brighton for a Local History publisher. However, novels are what she loves writing the most. After self publishing her first novel when a contract fell through, thanks to the recession, she continued to look for opportunities. In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her romantic comedy, ‘Winter’s Fairytale’. Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read sew and listen to podcasts. As she also likes cake she can also be found either walking or doing something vaguely physical at the gym.

My Review

Yes, we have another Christmas book from Maxine. As soon as a book by this author pops up you know it’s going to be an enjoyable read. I love the warmth and feel-good factor that I associate with her stories.

Lexi is a feisty, tomboy, having worked in F1 it certainly raises the bar for women, nice to see a strong female character. However, things have not gone smoothly in her work/personal life and she returns to the family home to lick her wounds. I like the homely image of mum fixing massive meals, the large noisy family sitting around the dinner table. Lexi has older brothers and the bond between them all is lovely.

So jobless and miserable, Lexi helps out in the family business shop .. it’s incredibly busy with Christmas looming. Enter the gorgeous, brooding Cal and Lexi’s eyes begin to sparkle. To add to the charm Cal is a single parent with a delightful little boy called George. He melts Lexi’s heart pretty quick.

This is a slow burn, will they manage to get together, the sparks are ignited but are there too many obstacles in the way? The Best Little Christmas Shop is a charming, cosy book to fill your heart with hope this festive season. It has Maxine’s easy style that is a pleasure to read and leaves you all warm and longing for some snow and a hot toddy.
