I'm thrilled to be one of the stops on the blog tour today for No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley and sharing my review. First of all let's take a look at the description for the 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…
What a wonderful story this is! A perfect book to get you in the Christmas spirit or just all warm and cosy for the winter ahead. I smiled and I laughed, this book was so much fun but with real emotion woven through that produced some beautiful and heartwarming moments.
I loved all the characters and thought that each and everyone of them brought something to the story. We follow Sarah on her mission to sort out The Shooting Star Mountain Resort where she is determined to make Christmas there special again. I loved Sarah and Will's first meeting well in person anyway although the emails were pretty funny too! Sparks were definitely flying! A special mention has to go to Poppy though, she was brilliant. This book has love, family, romance and a gorgeous setting all packaged up in a wonderfully festive story. The pacing of the plot is really good and I loved getting to know Sarah and wondering if she would get a happy ever after.
Engaging characters and a big dose of warmth made No One Cancels Christmas extra special and I loved every festive moment!
With thanks to Rachel at Rachel's Random Resources and the author for my copy.
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.
