A Little Christmas Hope

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…

My Thoughts

A heartwarming ho ho holiday read. Kathryn Freeman put a Mary and bright smile on my face with this Holly Jolly story. Anna is the head teacher/mistress at a primary school. She is also a widow and the mother of Maisie Who is quite vivacious. Dan is a well known actor who has just been fired from his long time role on a TV series. He has returned to his old stomping grounds to improve his bad boy reputation by teaching acting too primary students. There is instantly a little something something between Dan and Anna; who manages roping him into helping out with the annual Christmas show. SO will The head teacher and the actor find true love under the mistletoe?

This was such a fun and festive story! Anna and Dan were such likable characters as well as their kids. It was so sweet watching Dan interact with the school kids giving them parts in the performance that would play to their strengths. The story was also not over the top Christmas, this will definitely appeal to those grinches of you that aren’t into Christmas books. Anna and Dan do take a couple trips to London-ice-skating, the lights, Christmas trees, and The Lion King. All which sounded truly delightful. Another glorious story from this lovely author.

The Mystery of Montague House. by Emma Davies **Cover Reveal** @rararesources

Happy happy Thursday!

On the books keep coming! I’ve got another wonderful cover reveal for you today!

The Mystery of Montague House

When Summer meets Wynter…

With enough rooms to fill a Cluedo board several times over, Montague House has often been the subject of rumour and gossip. Tales of strange goings on, an owner who disappeared one day and was never seen again, not to mention the treasure that rumour has it lies at its heart… But now the present owner has died and the house is to be sold. It looks as if the opportunity has come to finally settle the stories once and for all.

Clodagh Wynter doesn’t believe in ghostly goings on and tall tales of secrets. She has her feet very firmly on the ground and, tasked with the job of valuing and cataloguing the house and all its contents, she’s simply looking forward to working in such a glorious setting. And if she happens across a priceless painting, well, that’s just icing on the cake.

Andie Summer is a Finder of Things and desperately needs this job; she’s down to her last few tins of baked beans. So looking for hidden treasure sounds right up her street, even if there was something very fishy about the mysterious Mr Mayfair who hired her. Because it’s just like she said to her faithful Basset Hound, Hamish; I saw something out of the corner of my eye as I was leaving, and you know what that means. It’s never good news when I see something out of the corner of my eye…

As the unlikely pair are thrown together, it soon becomes very clear however that they are not the only ones searching for the treasure. And they’re going to need all their ingenuity, resourcefulness, not to mention chocolate biscuits, if they’re ever going to untangle the web of secrets that surrounds Montague House. One that reaches even further than they ever thought possible…

Author Bio –

After a varied career, Emma Davies once worked for a design studio where she was asked to provide a fun and humorous (and not necessarily true) anecdote for their website. She wrote the following: ‘I am a bestselling novelist currently masquerading as a thirty-something mother of three.’ Well the job in the design studio didn’t work out but she’s now a fifty-something mother of three and is happy to report the rest of her dream came true.

After many years as a finance manager she now writes full time, and is far happier playing with words than numbers. She lives with her husband and three children in rural Shropshire where she writes in all the gaps in between real life.
