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?
I buddy read this story and enjoyed it. I did feel it potentially didn’t have to be as long as it was and that I could have been slimed down a little bit (but that might just be me!?)
It was very Christmassy and gave me big downtown abbey vibes, might have something to do with the fact I’ve binged the whole series recently.
I loved the concept and the setting. The author really sets herself apart from other similar books with her descriptive elements.
All in all, I’ve given this a 3/5 stars.
