On a grey London day, Esme’s world crumbles around her when she loses her glitzy job on a top TV programme, her gorgeous, city-slicker boyfriend and her stunning apartment, all in one fell swoop just before Christmas.

Esme is forced suddenly to move back to her sleepy home town of Sandchester, and despite the snow blanketing the roof and the fairy lights that twinkle in her rustic little cottage, everything is looking bleak. That is until she reconnects with an old crush and finds herself unexpectedly getting swept away.

But Joe, handsome and charming as he is, is not all he seems. Esme soon realises that he has a tragic past which he just might not be able to overcome…

Surrounded by her loving, if hare-brained, family and with the support of her hilarious friends, Esme is determined to have a go at forging her own path, even if it all comes to nothing. But one question still lingers in her mind: will she find someone to kiss under the mistletoe this Christmas?

I had a great time reading this book and now I am looking forward to reading more books by the same author. Many many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for granting me access to this eARC.

The story of Esme, who loses her job, her boyfriend and her home on the same day.

She has to move back from London to the village where she grew up and soon realises she won't cope living with her parents. That is how she meets Joe, the local estate agent. She went to school with his but hasn't seen him since. He has a bit of a reputation, but she can't work him out. 

As she starts to rebuild her life with the help of her firends, she beings to spend more time with Joe, but can he move on from his past, and what will happen when Esme's ex turns up wanting a second chance?

I liked how the story is told from different points of view, and not jsut Esme and Joe.

What a good read this book was. The author spins a great tale, with lovely, human and often eccentric characters. The book is a real  roller coaster, following the trials and tribulations of the leading lady. Plenty of emotions, sad and happy. Lots of hilarious scenes. Katie has a gift for writing those. All of this tied up in a nice romantic package. I’m now inspired to go and make a batch of cheese scones.  You won’t regret picking this book up but make sure you’ve got plenty of time as you won’t want to put it down.
