I had posted on Twitter that I needed a good Christmas-y book to read. Author, Jenny Hale, responded to that with a link to all of her books and guys, this woman is literally the queen of Christmas books. She has written so many that it was hard to choose just one but I finally settled on we’ll always have Christmas. I’ll give you the synopsis of the book and then my thoughts. This review will be spoiler free.
Christmas has always been a special time for Noelle Parker. Winter evenings spent with family and friends, drinking hot chocolate and eating cookies at her family’s cozy bakery have shaped her love for all things festive. But this year everything is changing…
The beloved bakery is facing closure and Noelle needs a miracle to save Christmas.
Determined to raise funds for the family business, Noelle sets about revamping the bakery while juggling a surprise new job, caring for the elderly and cantankerous William Harrington in his luxurious, sprawling mansion.
As Noelle melts the frostiness of the house with cake baking, snowball fights and glittering decorations, she helps William to reconnect with a romance that has spanned decades and unexpectedly finds herself falling for his grandson – the gorgeous but mysterious Alexander Harrington…
In the countdown to Christmas, can Noelle save the bakery, reunite a family and create some magical memories of her own along the way?
This book was so sweet. I’m usually not a huge fan of sappy romance stories but every once in awhile I just get in the mood for them and this book satisfied that craving. However, this book was not just a typical romance where you know what’s coming. There was actually some twists that surprised me. This book was well written and it never bored me. I liked all of the characters, which usually never happens. If you like romance or just feel good stories then this is one for you.
After reading this I’m definitely interested in reading more from Jenny Hale. I linked above to her Twitter so go check out everything she has to offer. One of her other books, Coming Home for Christmas, is being made into a Hallmark channel movie which is just awesome. Let me know what you think! Does this book sound interesting to you? What are you reading to get into the Christmas mood? Thank you for reading and have a great day!
