On Primrose Hill . . .

Twinkling lights brighten London’s Primrose Hill as Christmas nears – but for Nettie Watson, it’s not parties and presents that she wants.

Promises are made

For Nettie, Christmas only serves as a stark reminder of the life she used to have . . . One day she made a promise to never leave home, and so far she’s stayed true to her word.

Promises are broken

Under the glaring spotlight of the world’s media, Nettie is unexpectedly caught up in a 21st century storm . . . Her exploits have made her a global name and attracted the attention of one of the world’s most eligible men – famous front man, Jamie Westlake. But now she has his attention, does she want to keep it?

Whenever I get asked for book recommendation Christmas At Tiffany’s by Karen Swan is always on of my go to books and every year I look forward to seeing what Karen is going to bring us next. Unfortunately my TBR pile is bigger than a house!

This book follows Nettie. Nettie lives in her parents home and works in a job she quite frankly hates. Nettie was a character you both love and hate. At times I wanted to shake her and others I wanted to give her a big hug.

For me this book had a slow start and I was as captured by it as I have been for other books by Karen but that could be a personal thing as I was reading it during the Christmas period and there was a lot going on.

I really enjoyed the the blue bunny campaign. I was very funny and it just shows how the littlest of things can go viral.

The heartbreak in this book was hard to guess.I guesses who it involved quite early on but not what had happened.

This book is perfect for this season and will leave you with a case of the warm fuzzies. I can’t wait to dive into Karen’s other books and may have to move them up the TBR pile.
