My favorite Christmas books this year

I’m already planning a big Advent special for next year and I’m reading a lot of Christmas Chick-Lit books to include in there. That means I’ll be posting these reviews only next December. However, I loved to of these books so much, that I have to mention them right now. Amazing stories, who deserve to be in the spotlight and that’s why I am presenting them to you today.

First up is Just for Christmas by Scarlett Bailey:

The bit on the back:

Her best friend's wedding...

When Alex Munro learns that the love of her life is getting married to another girl, all she wants is to be alone - and as far away from Edinburgh as possible.

Moving to a Cornish cottage, which comes complete with the world's scruffiest dog, Alex finds that her new neighbours are determined to involve her in their madcap Christmas festivities.

Then she meets her sexy neighbour Ruan - and somehow Alex doesn't want to be alone this Christmas after all. But having lost one fiancé, Ruan has no intention of letting anyone get close to him again...

What I think:

When I saw the book for the first time I was instantly drawn to it’s cover, it’s so beautiful =) Then I read the blurb and knew: I have to read this book.

It's a wonderful novel about Alex, who just went to the other end of England to escape from everything at home. With a broken heart and the lost of trust she starts her new life.
She meets Ruan and as I reader I instantly felt their connection. It actually took them much longer to realise it. They both also had other things to deal with, issues from their past, which always came in between.

I couldn’t put the book down, the writing is amazing and emotional.

Loved Alex as the main character and could really connect with her. Ruan had a mystery surrounding him and it was so much fun to discover more and more about him.
The book is open for controversial topcis, which I think is great.
Definitely worth reading!!! Can’t wait to read more of Scarlett Bailey.

Now tot he other lovely and wonderful book: Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan:

The bit on the back:

USA Today bestselling author Sarah Morgan heats up the season with the O'Neil brothers in a brand-new holiday series! 

Once upon a time, Christmas was Kayla Green's favorite time of year. Now all the workaholic wants for Christmas is for it to be over—as fast as possible! So when duty calls her to snowy Vermont to close a deal with a new client, Kayla is grateful for an excuse to avoid the holidays for another year. 

Jackson O'Neil left a thriving business behind to return home and salvage his family's resort—it's in his blood, and he can't let it fail. Now that he's got marketing whiz Kayla Green working with him to put Snow Crystal on the map, success is on the horizon. The fact they strike enough sparks off each other to power all the Christmas lights in Vermont is just an added bonus. 

Kayla might be an expert at her job, but she's out of her depth with Jackson—he makes her crave the happy-ever-after she once dreamed of, and it's terrifying. As the snowflakes continue to swirl, will the woman who doesn't believe in the magic of Christmas finally fall under its spell?

What I think:

This lovely book was recommended to me a great friend. We wanted to do a buddy read, but she couldn’t wait and told me to read it immediately ;) Thanks Ana(ThisChickReads), such a great recommendation. Well, so I did and I am more than happy I did. This book is amazing, you’ll see.

There is Kayla the business woman on one hand, and Jackson the hot family business owner Jackson on the other. Jackson is awesome, you’ll love him.
Kayla and Jackson are drawn to each other immidiately, but Kayla tries to keep up her shell, but for how long?

This book is beautifully written and I loved diving into the story, never wanting to come out of it again. I love the change of perspectives, this made the book even more interesting.

A heart-warming, emotional story about two totally different people to become one. AMAZING!!!

I hope you all liked my choices of Christmas books, they're fabulous, so go read them now ;)
