Christmas at the Falling-Down Guesthouse - by Lilly Bartlett

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Put your feet up and tuck into the mince pies, because you won’t have to lift a finger to enjoy this Christmas!

Too bad the same can’t be said for single mother and extremely undomestic goddess, Lottie.

When her beloved Aunt Kate ends up in hospital just before Christmas, Lottie and her seven-year-old daughter rush to rural Wales to take over her B&B. A picky hotel reviewer and his mad family are coming to stay, and without the rating only he can give them, Aunt Kate will lose her livelihood.

But Lottie can barely run her own life, let alone a hotel. How will she manage to turn the falling-down guesthouse into the luxurious wonderland the reviewer expects? And could the mysterious taxi driver, Danny, who agrees to help her, turn out to be the real gift this season?

As the snow sparkles on the trees and hot chocolate steams in your hand, snuggle into the delicious magic of Christmas at the Falling-Down Guesthouse.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Lottie receives the news that her aunt has been in a terrible, so she is traveling to Wales with her daughter Mabel. There she takes over her aunt’s B&B. A reviewer is coming to check out the hotel, so the pressure is high.

All this reminds her of loosing her parents and it’s just all very stressful. She gets help for taxi driver Danny, who has a bit of a mysterious side.

I really adored the main characters in this book and all the other s added to it as well. This is a great and festive read full of ups and downs, magical scenes and funny moments. It’s also really emotional. Looking for a festive read to curl up to?! Here it is :).
