    Highly recommended!

    I'm in the mood for fun and festive read so this was perfect. I loved the Christmas mood as much as I loved the characters, the humour and the plot. I was hooked since the first pages and couldn't put it down. It's not the first book I read by Ms Baggot and I think that each is better than the previous. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Charming story that touches on real-life issues

    Emily’s impending Christmas is looking to be one that she is expecting. Her best friend/roommate has moved out to live his boyfriend, her school supervisor is keeping a close tab on her and it looks like she won’t be getting the Deputy Head position at her school, and she’s also been tasked with the school’s Christmas play even though she has no musical experience. To top it off, she finds disgraced superstar, Ray Stone is the school’s shed with an injured hedgehog. How will she hide this conundrum from her supervisor? Ray is pretty much down on his luck. His unstable ex-girlfriend is selling defamatory lies about him to the media, he’s losing a bunch of gigs because of it, doesn’t have enough rent money to keep his apartment and to top it off, he needs surgery on his throat or risk losing his voice forever. As Ray pops up in Emily’s life unexpectedly, both of them begin to help each other realize that life can provide new beginnings along with love. A feel-good novel, worthy to be read during the most wonderful time of the year. I have given this a full five stars rating because Mandy Baggot brings in real life issues and weaves in funny, realistic characters into this heartwarming story that is hard to put down once you’ve started reading it.

    Festive fun

    This was a sweet festive read. It took a while to get into it and connect with Emily and Ray but once I did I found the story enjoyable overall. I liked the addition of Emily’s school life to the story and the kids in her class who added a fun flavour to the story. Ray’s history with his ex was also interesting and handled well. Worth a read.
