The first short story in the fun & flirty #LoveLondon series from exciting new chick lit author Nikki Moore!

There’s nothing Holly Winterlake loves more than Christmas and skating, so working as an Ice Marshall at London’s Somerset House is a dream come true.

Noel Summerford hates the festive season and is a disaster on the ice, so taking his godson to Somerset House is his idea of the nightmare before Christmas!

Things are bound to get interesting when these two collide…

With a forty foot Christmas tree, an assortment of well meaning friends and relatives, and a mad chocolate Labrador, will this festive season be one to remember … or forget?

Thank you to HarperImpulse for approving me on Netgalley to review this book. This is the first in a new series by Nikki.

We begin with Noel and his complaining about Christmas. He hates it. To him it is the worst time of the year. However he promises he will take his godson Jay ice skating at Somerset House.

Holly on the other hand loves Christmas and winter. She can’t think of anything better than being an Ice Marshall at Somerset House. She looks forward to going to work everyday.

Of course things do not go well when these two meet.

I really enjoyed seeing these two characters develop, even after such a short time as two days. The characters back stories are well thought out and explained in just enough detail.

In the past I have not always been a fan of short stories but I’ve found that if there is enough details that actually I’m quite enjoying them.

This is a romantic, christmassy short story that will have you begging for the next book, just like me.
