This is a wonderfully festive novella by the fabulous Talli Roland. I was literally hooked from the start of this story and couldn't stand it when I had to put the book down to leave for work, I was just desperate to hear about 'the proposal'.
Lucy is a brilliant character, she's so carefree and is happy to take risks in order to move her life on from the heartbreak she has suffered in the past. There are lots of loveable characters in this book and despite it being only a short story I feel I've really got to know them all.
On the Christmas side - this book was the perfect festive read, it started by describing London at Christmas in a way that made me want to run straight down there and join in with the festivities. There were constant Christmas references throughout the story, and the story ends with the Christmas Party to rival all other Christmas parties.
Packed full of hope this is an inspirational story of 'moving on' and will leave you feeling warm, fuzzy and totally festive.
