While bringing joy to others, can these two Christmas helpers also find some for themselves?

Seren’s great aunt Nelly hates being in a care home, especially around Christmas when Seren learns that Nelly and the other residents can’t enjoy the simple pleasure of browsing for gifts in the shops. So what if Seren brings the shops to them?

Converting an ice cream van into a gift shop, Seren travels around Tinstone to help out the less mobile. On her journeys, she keeps bumping into a reluctant – and handsome – Father Christmas, who has been roped into helping out this festive season.

But running her own business comes with risks and surprises that Seren’s not sure she’s able to tackle. Has she bitten off more than she can chew, or will her travelling Christmas shop provide some much-needed festive cheer for the residents of Tinstone?

A delightfully heartwarming and funny festive romance for fans of Rebecca Raisin and Sue Moorcroft.

It’s almost the Christmas time!!

I have always been a fan of Lilac Mills’ book and would make sure to read most of her books. This story is about a woman named Seren has an aunt Aunt Nelly who hated being in the care home during the Christmas time. Seren comes up with an idea of converting an ice cream tuck into a shop that sells Christmas gifts. As she travels around the town, she meets a handsome Santa named Daniel and a romance is kindled between the two. But running a travelling shop wasn’t as easy as Seren thought and it comes with greater risks, including her suspension from her current job…

Reading this book made me feel like I was watching a Hallmark Christmas Romance movie on the TV. The descriptions of the places also gave a sense of Christmas holidays to the reader and so I actually had a fun time feeling like Christmas. I also liked the writing and the author did a good job of making the reader feel like they are a part of the story as well. Overall, if you like a cheesy Christmas romance novel and you are looking for one, then this book is one for you–worth 4.5 stars!

Many thanks to Netgalley and Canelo for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
