An enchanting story about the magic of Christmas, the importance of family, and the joy of falling in love during the most romantic season of the year…

Christmas has always been a special time for Noelle Parker. Winter evenings spent with family and friends, drinking hot chocolate and eating cookies at her family’s cozy bakery have shaped her love for all things festive. But this year everything is changing…

The beloved bakery is facing closure and Noelle needs a miracle to save Christmas.

Determined to raise funds for the family business, Noelle sets about revamping the bakery while juggling a surprise new job, caring for the elderly and cantankerous William Harrington in his luxurious, sprawling mansion.

As Noelle melts the frostiness of the house with cake baking, snowball fights and glittering decorations, she helps William to reconnect with a romance that has spanned decades and unexpectedly finds herself falling for his grandson – the gorgeous but mysterious Alexander Harrington

In the countdown to Christmas, can Noelle save the bakery, reunite a family and create some magical memories of her own along the way?

Unwrap the feeling of Christmas in this beautiful novel celebrating friendship, family and love that lasts a lifetime. We’ll Always Have Christmas is the perfect treat for fans of Karen Swan, Susan Mallery and Sue Moorcroft.

Thank you to Bookouture for letting me be part of this tour and for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I love Jenny’s writing so, I was very excited when I heard there was a new Christmas book out.

Noelle has just lost her job and isn’t quite sure what to do next. Her dream would be to run the family bakery but when she finds out the bakery is in trouble she’s devastated. When she lands a job working for the Harrington’s she doesn’t expect there to be such chemistry with the youngest Harrington, Alex.

Alex and his grandfather do not get on. Noelle knows how important family is and she can’t let these two leave things as they are. Noelle is very close to her family and she can’t imagine being at odds with them.

Noelle and her friends are such fun characters. I really loved Phoebe she is very impulsive and we could all learn a lot from her.

This is my favourite Christmas book of the year so far. Christmas is a big element in this book and I love this. Christmas is my favourite time of year so this is always going to be a win for me.

I can’t praise this book enough it is everything you want in a Christmas story.

Jenny creates characters that you can so easily fall in love with and I cannot wait to see what she brings for us in the future.

About Jenny Hale

When I graduated college, one of my friends said, “Look out for this one; she’s going to be an author one day.” Despite being an avid reader and a natural storyteller, it wasn’t until that very moment that the idea of writing novels occurred to me.

Sometimes our friends can see the things that we can’t.

While I didn’t start straight away, that comment sowed a seed and several years, two children, and hundreds of thousands of words later, I completed a novel that I felt was worthy of publication. The result is Coming Home for Christmas, a heart-warming story about friends, family, and the magic of love at Christmas.

I released my second book, Love Me for Me, this past summer, and my next novel, A Christmas to Remember is out now.

When I’m not writing, I’m a District Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages, a mother of two boys, and a wife to a very supportive husband.
