Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Don't miss the brand-new Christmas book from Sunday Times best-selling author Trisha Ashley!

This Christmas will be the most special of them all....

Elderly widow Sabine knows this will be her last Christmas in her beloved home, Mitras Castle. Determined to make it just like the ones she remembers from her childhood, she employs Dido Jones of Heavenly Houseparties to help with the big day.

Dido is enchanted by the castle as soon as she steps through the imposing front door. And as Christmas day approaches, her feeling of connection to the old house runs deeper than she first thought. But when the snow begins to fall and Sabine's family arrive at the house - including Dido's teenage crush Xan - tensions rise around the castle's future and long-buried mysteries begin to unravel....

As past secrets come to light, can this still be a magical Christmas to remember?

Absolutely awful narration.

Buy the book instead. It sounds like a bot reading it, not worth it at all. 😢 good story though. Such a shame was so looking forward to listening to it on my walks

The Narration was not for me.

sadly, I had to quit listening to this audible. The ladies who narrated it were sadly not enticing to me. I couldn't get into the story or characters. I will try the kindle version.

I almost didn’t buy this because of the reviews

I was amazed to read the review I wonder if reviewers need to get their equipment checked. Comments about the tone of the readers voice and other non flattering comments. It was a lovely story and it. Stands being read repeatedly. No gratuitous violence and a really interesting story. Very much as good as all the Trisha Ashley books I have read so far. I recommend this for a really good read at any time especially at Christmas.

Disappointing

Buy the book. The audio is terrible, especially the part of Sabine. Seems to be very poorly produced.

Perfect reading for Christmas

I absolutely loved this book, not least because almost all the characters were credible and engaging. There were no silly plot devices, no unbelievable twists or misunderstandings, just sheer good story telling, and festive feeling. Just don't listen to it if you are on a diet.

Poor compared to other works by author

This felt quite naieve compared with some of the authors other works. In fact I wondered if it had been written by someone else under Tricia Ashley's name. The narrator voicing Dido's character delivered the lines in quite an odd way, rushed and with no feeling. Overall it was passable, but I wouldn't rush to pick another by this author based on this novel.

If you love Christmas food...

Wonderful duel performance of older and younger women's voices. Warm and comforting story and lots of exemplary good English food.

Save your money- narrator is terrible

This narrator is terrible. Alexa did a better job, and if I didn’t know better, d assume that this narrator isn’t actually human but AI as well. I only made it through one chapter before stopped listening and switched to reading

‘With dignity’

Lazily written, terribly narrated but good for a drinking game as after a couple of chapters the stock phrases almost become amusing… Most of the characters said something ‘with dignity’ a lot and there was an awful lot of oven glove throwing too….

Harmless listen read by a robot but poorly executed with random declarations of love. Entirely unbelievable (and i watch marvel films)

Predictable over perfect protagonist

Absolutely Heart Warming!

I immediately fell in love with this book! As always, Trisha Ashley does the most beautiful job engulfing the reader into the actual story itself. Her attention to detail is part of the charm of her writing & her ability to draw the reader into the story more closely. Since she does this so well, I find her Christmas novels to be my favorites. I was in love with all the characters & as well as the ending. Furthermore, both narrators for this novel were exquisite. I look forward to listening to many more books performed by them for Audible. And i cannot, cannot wait for Ashley’s next novel release!!

I would spend another Christmas at this castle

Trisha Ashley did not disappoint. From the quirky characters to the convoluted coincidences, it was true to the author’s form. All of the characters were well formed and added to the story. I will read this over and over (as I do every book by this author.)
