Snowy rooftops, mulled wine, and a hot single dad. Not the Christmas Saffy wished for… but maybe the one she needs? 

Twenty-nine-year-old Saffron Baxter knew her fun holiday plans didn’t stand a chance the moment her sister called to say she was stuck abroad with no hope of being home before Christmas. Saffy would just have to abandon thoughts of wild festive parties in the city and head down to remote Cornwall. 

Because every year her sister hosts a huge Christmas meal for all the single parents in her village. And Saffy knows it’d break her heart to let them down. 

Arriving as snow starts to fall over the thatched cottages of the little harbour town of Port Breok, she meets Logan – the tall, fair-haired, blue-eyed, devoted single dad who lives over the road, with his adorable daughter Chloe. At first she thinks he might help her make Christmas Day extra-memorable, but he just seems convinced she’ll never manage – that she’s just a party girl who doesn’t care about family, or anyone’s feelings. 

Maybe he’s right. After all – she doesn’t want to settle down, she’s only there for a few days… But she’s still determined to do her sister proud with gorgeous decorations, the most beautiful real tree – complete with extra twinkly lights, and delicious mince pies. To make it a Christmas everyone will remember, especially little Chloe. Even if, when the mistletoe comes down, she knows she’ll probably never see Logan again… 

Thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book via Netgalley and for letting me take part in this tour. This is the first book I have read by Karen King but I love Jenny Hale and the blurb suggested this is a similar style. I also LOVE a Christmas so all of this made me take a chance on an author new to me.

In this story, we follow Saffy. Saffy is a career woman. She lives in Birmingham spending her time working hard and playing hard. When her sister needs her to host her annual Christmas party for single parents it’s not exactly Saffy’s thing but feeling guilty she agrees. Saffy is a complex character. She may be a career woman but there’s more going on there. Saffy is a fun character too, I love the scene with her polar bear onesie. She’s also fiercely independent.

Logan lives opposite Saffy’s sister’s. Logan is a hot single dad. Little Chloe is his world and he would do anything for her. The minute Saffy and Logan meet you can feel the chemistry and you just know that something is going to happen here. I was so excited! I couldn’t wait for this to all unfold.

I really enjoyed Karen’s style. I started reading this book and before I knew it I was halfway through. It was an incredibly easy read and perfect for a winter evening. I do warn you though, make sure you have hot chocolate and your favourite Christmas foods on hand because I was craving these quite a lot throughout this book.

I look forward to discovering more of Karen’s books in the future.
