’Tis the season for mulled wine, mince pies, and magic under the mistletoe…
Flora loves Christmas more than anything else in the world, so she’s gutted when her Scrooge-alike boss fires her from Deck the Halls Christmas emporium. But now she finally has a chance to follow her dreams – and what better place to start than the home of Christmas?
Before she can say ‘sleigh bells’, Flora’s on her way to Lapland in a campervan-cum-Christmas-shop. She can’t wait to spend her days drinking hot chocolate and taking reindeer-drawn carriage rides, but something Flora didn’t expect was meeting Connor, a Norse god of a man who makes her heart flutter and snowflakes swirl in her stomach. There’s just one problem: Connor hates Christmas.
Can Flora convince Connor of the joys of Christmas – and will she find a festive romance along the way?
The perfect Christmas romance for fans of Debbie Johnson, Holly Martin and Jenny Colgan.
So having read Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop and Aria’s Travelling Book Shop, I was so excited when I got the ARC for Flora’s travelling Christmas Shop–this is not a continuation of the travelling series as neither Rosie nor Aria is in this book.
Plot:- Flora seemed to be going through a hard time–her boyfriend breaks up with her, she is fired from her job. With the coaxing of her friend Livvie, Flora who is into Christmas flies off to Scandinavian Countries where she with the fellow Van Life’s trail through the countries. She meets Conner who is handsome like a Greek God but who doesn’t believe in Christmas. Can Flora convince him to believe in Christmas and will romance blossom between the two?
Writing:- I actually enjoyed reading this book, just like the previous books and felt like watching a Hallmark movie. There’s less than two months’ more for Christmas and already, by reading this book, I can feel the vibe of Christmas! I do like the friendships that is developed in the book, the slow romance developing between Flora and Connor and of course loved reading about the snow and the Christmas in Finland, making me feel like I am in Finland celebrating Christmas! And quiet a cheesy romantic book to read with you know, everything will be happily ever after.
Character:-Flora is a likable character and I warmed up to her character. Connor and the others were likable as well.
Overall:- If you like reading Christmas romance novels with the reminiscent of Four Christmases with a backdrop of a Hallmark movie, then this book is for you! Worth four and a half stars!
Many thanks to Netgalley and publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
Rebecca Raisin writes heartwarming romance from her home in sunny Perth, Australia. Her heroines tend to be on the quirky side and her books are usually set in exotic locations so her readers can armchair travel any day of the week. The only downfall about writing about gorgeous heroes who have brains as well as brawn, is falling in love with them – just as well they’re fictional. Rebecca aims to write characters you can see yourself being friends with. People with big hearts who care about relationships and believe in true, once in a lifetime love. Her bestselling novel Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop has been optioned for film with MRC studios and Frolic Media
