It’s the most wonderful time of the year…..yes today’s the day and I’m delighted to be celebrating publication day for No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley as part of the blog tour!
About this book…
It’s the most magical time of the year, and for travel agent Sarah it’s also the busiest! But this year one man threatens to ruin Christmas for Sarah’s customers – Mr Grinch, Will Armstrong.
The Shooting Star Mountain resort is a magical place, and Sarah has fond memories of Christmas here as a little girl – visits to Father Christmas, husky rides in the snow and hot chocolate by a roaring fire. But as the resorts new owner, Will refuses to play snowball or to deck the halls with anything remotely resembling tinsel!
With customers complaining their Christmas is ruined, Sarah decides it’s up to her to convince Scroogey Will just how magical Christmas can be….
But getting Will into the Christmas spirit is hopeless – he is Bah Humbug personified! But as Sarah gets to know him better, she realises that underneath all the gloom is a man struggling with a pain of his own.
With the big day approaching, Sarah realises that the magic and sparkle can wait. This year, she’s going to spend Christmas day with someone special her very own Mr Scrooge…
Well I managed to hold out until October for my first Christmas read of the year but what an absolutely brilliant one to start off with! Zara Stoneley has written a fun and festive romantic comedy that had me in stitches on one page but then in tears the next! Talk about an emotional rollercoaster!
”Tis the season to be jolly apparently but it looks like Will Armstrong didn’t get the memo! When Sarah starts to get complaints from clients of her travel agency about the lack of “happy holiday” Christmas charm at The Shooting Star Mountain Resort, she decides to visit herself to see if she can get to the bottom of the problem. But her emails to the gorgeous owner haven’t revealed the whole truth about the situation at the ranch and when Sarah arrives there are more shocks in store than even she had been expecting. Can she save her own happy memories of her childhood Christmas and create a few more “adult” ones as well?!
I adored No One Cancels Christmas! It’s such a heartwarming read that it immensely made me want to bake mince pies and rush out to buy Baileys so I could make my very special Christmas hot chocolate! If ever there was a book that made you wish for a white Christmas then it’s this one! Sarah and Will were relatable and personable plus they had PLENTY of chemistry! And there was a whole host of supporting characters who also brought this book to life, with my own personal favourite being Poppy who we meet on the flight to Canada and who brought a huge smile to my face with her cheeky antics!
There is so much to love about this book and it has definitely put me in festive mood already! Beautifully written with unexpected plot twists that gave an emotional punch to my heart, I thoroughly enjoyed every single page of this merry mayhem! Bring on the snow!
Meet the author…
Born in a small village in Staffordshire, I wanted to be a female James Herriot, a spy, or an author when I grew up. After many years, and many different jobs, my dream of writing a bestseller came true.
I write about friendship, dreams, love, and happy ever afters, and hope that my tales make you cry a little, laugh a lot, and occasionally say ‘ahhh’.
I now live in a Cheshire village with my family, a lively cockapoo called Harry, and a very bossy (and slightly evil) cat called Saffron.
