Christmas has come to Rosefont Hill and it’s destined to be a particularly special festive season for Sophie May.

When a smitten stranger emails Sophie to ask her if he can propose to the woman he loves in her little teashop, the romantic in her finds it impossible to refuse. Even though Christmas is her busiest time of year she has her own sweetheart, Hollywood actor Billy Buskin, to lend a helping hand. How could she say no to making someone’s dream come true?

As Sophie and Billy work together to plan the perfect fairytale proposal for this couple, excitement in Rosefont Hill is mounting. Who is this mysterious man? And who is the lucky lady he’s about to get down on one knee for?

I purchased this book from Amazon quite a while ago but as soon as I finished Billy and Me I had to read Christmas with Billy and Me. This book is set a few months after Billy and Me and if you haven’t read that then Please do not read on as there are some spoilers ahead…


Sophie and Billy are happily running Molly-on-the-Hill and now it’s Sophie’s favourite time of year. This is the first Christmas without Molly and Sophie wants to make sure she’s doing her justice. So when she receives an email from an anonymous romantic wanting to propose in her teashop she had to say yes.

I guessed who the couple was quite early but I this didn’t ruin the story at all. I loved all the effort that Sophie and the others put into making this proposal perfect.

This is a sweet, romantic story with a dose of Christmas magic. Giovanna had me tearing up a few times. Giovanna’s character building is so well written that you feel like you know these characters as well as your own family.

Christmas is my favourite time of year and I really enjoyed this novella. I am looking forward to reading Always with Love in the near future.

Guest Review: You’re The One That I Want

Today I am very excited to present you with a guest review post by the lovely Fionnuala. This is one I’ve had on my TBR for a while and after this review I’ll definitely be bumping it up. Maddy, dressed in white, stands at the back of the church. At the end of the aisle is Rob – the man she’s about to marry. Next to Rob is Ben – best man and the best friend any two people ever had. And that’s the problem. Because if it wasn’t Rob waiting for her at the altar, there’s a strong chance […]
