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…
Thank you to Rachel for letting me take part in this tour and to Harper Impulse for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I have read quite a few of Zara’s books in the past and I love Christmas so I was excited to read this one.
This story follows Sarah as she returns to Shooting Star Mountain Resort. Sarah has many problems and she has been running from the for years and years. Her return to Shooting Star Mountain Resort is a real turning point for her though. Sarah is wild and crazy and impulsive. I really liked her free spirit.
Will runs the Shooting Star Mountain Resort. He is a real grump. He can’t stand Christmas and the festive spirit has leaked out of the place. Will is a complicated character. He seems all gruff on the outside but deep down I think he is a real sweet heart who has been hurt in the past.
I loved the location for this book. There were cabins, log fires, hot chocolates and lots of snow. I would absolutely love to visit this place. It sounds so warm an cosy its the perfect Christmas vacation.
This story is fully of love, family and Christmas. It’s perfect for the festive season, curled up under a blanket with a hot chocolate.
