Dreaming of Christmas #BookReview #Canelo #NetGalley

Written by T. A. Williams




It’s the dream Christmas: snow, mountains… and, er, an ex-boyfriend. But can Zoe still find love in the Alps?

Dumped on Christmas Eve by her long-term boyfriend, it’s been a rough year for Zoe Lumsley. But then she gets an invitation she can’t refuse: an all expenses paid skiing holiday with old university friends.

The bad news: her ex, Grant, will be there with his new girlfriend. But so will her former flatmate Billy, the organiser, and in the meantime he’s done rather well for himself. As Christmas in the Alps approaches, it’ll be great to see the old gang. Some more than others…

Perfect for readers of Tilly Tenant, Holly Martin and Philippa Ashley, this is the perfect magical Christmas getaway from the bestselling T.A. Williams.

Five Snow-Dusted, Sparkling Stars!   5 stars


One thing you can be sure of with T. A. Williams’ ‘Dreaming of’ series, is that there will be not only a smashing story but also an amazing setting – and this novel is no exception.

Zoe’s partner of 10 years decides to tell her on Christmas eve that he has someone else and is moving out right away. Fast forward through her worst times, and an ex-uni friend who was a bit of a nerd and has now succeeded in business beyond all their wildest dreams invites all the old flatmates to join him in Austria for an all-expenses paid break over Christmas. The bad news is that ALL flatmates includes the ex who dumped Zoe less than a year ago …

This is an absolutely stunning read! The setting is magnificent, the luxury is opulent and, as always with this author, a black labrador puts in a cute and very welcome appearance! Skilfully crafted, the characters are a wonderful mix and their individual personalities shine through. Add in a terrific storyline with lots going on, this is one to command your full attention and leave you with the feeling of warm happiness and in eager expectation of the festive season. Deserving of five, snow-dusted, sparkling stars!
