No one cancels Christmas – Zara Stoneley

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…



My review

This is an utterly wonderful story! Although there is a bit of a sad underlayer, it made me smile, laugh out loud, grin the whole time.

This book takes us to a wintery Canada and is about love, friendship, coming to terms, moving on and Christmas, of course. You can keep on living in the past or you can pick yourself up and turn your future around. Although you were sure that having a relationship with no strings attached is what you always wanted, maybe you have another think coming …

It goes without a doubt that you need the Christmas feel, but is this what it is really about?

It is one of those books where you know from the very first words that you will love it. The author uses a very fluent writing style and she has the kind of humour I totally appreciate.

I, for sure, am looking forward to your next book.

Thank you, Zare Stonely and RachelsRandomResources.


About 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.
