Summary

Ellie Pearce adores Christmas so much she celebrates all year round, earning herself the nickname Christmas Girl. If only she liked her job as much as eggnog lattes and mistletoe. Stuck as a marketing analyst for London-based recruitment company Caldwell & Atkinson, Ellie is desperate for a career change but afraid to take a chance. 

CEO Rosalind Caldwell needs a new personal assistant after the last one quit, putting the extremely important corporate Christmas party in jeopardy. Christmas Girl is just the holiday miracle Rosalind needs, and Ellie is quickly promoted to the top floor of the Canary Wharf skyscraper. 

Ellie isn’t a PA, has never planned a party in her life, and is terrified of heights. If things weren’t bad enough, she then goes and develops a ridiculous crush on her totally intimidating new boss. With the festive season fast approaching, what could possibly go wrong?

Another Radley Hit!

You always know you are in good hands with Amanda Radley and she has done it again with Humbug. Two wonderful main characters in Ros and Ellie with strong support from daughter Ava and best friend Will respectively. It’s well written, humorous and warm hearted. Just don’t expect any steamy sex scenes; it didn’t need any.

A Modern Day Christmas Carol

Amanda has done it again. Another winning combination.

What happens when you get two total opposites. Ellie Pearce who would celebrate Christmas every Day and works on the second floor and is happy working that high and CEO Rosalind Caldwell who works on the 24th floor

When Ellie is summoned both lives are changed.

Ellie has one big secret that her friend Wil knows and at all costs she does not want Rosalind to know .

This is a story of trust, Being non-judgrmental and love, and as thru say ' All You Need is Love.'

I Love X-mas books

But why the MC is called humbug I have no idea, i loved her. Another good thing about this books is the raise of fear of heights. Very important.
Excellent book excellent narration.

Sweet and amusing

Perfect holiday season listening! Refreshing to enjoy a rom com with minimal ‘misunderstandings’ as plot device. Just lots of fun. I especially enjoyed the rapport between the tween daughter and personal assistant. Relaxing rom com listening is just the ticket for the holiday season!
