Summary

The most magical time of the year....

For the first time in 10 years, Freya is back in the little village of Middlemass for Christmas. The streets might be twinkling with fairy lights, but after the recent loss of her mother, she's never felt less festive. 

Forced to sleep under the same roof as her handsome neighbour Finn, Freya realises she's going to need a distraction—fast! So she sets herself a challenge: to cook the '12 Days of Christmas'. Her delicious food soon brings the villagers together, and as each day passes, old friendships are renewed, memories stirred and there's even the flickering of romance....

She was only meant to stay for the holidays, but could Middlemass—and Finn—steal her heart forever?

Helen Keeley’s Performance is Top Notch

Loving Helen Keeley’s narration! Fun, simple rom-com. Moving on to their next book together!

Fantastic!

Great writing and excellent narration. I was pleased to discover that nearly all mouthwatering dishes described in the book (the protagonist is a chef who cooks to cope with her emotions, and the author a high-level cook herself) were included at the end! they are worth getting the paper copy which I am setting off to do. I am having a great time discovering British Christmas novels while on winter break from university studies, and I have another week to polish off a few more, starting with another by the same author!
