A Little Christmas Hope
Newly promoted head teacher Anna Dalton needs a Christmas miracle – and fast! After years of sitting through excruciatingly dull Christmas productions, complete with crying children and sleeping parents, she’s determined Riddlescomb Primary School will put on a Nativity to remember.
Enter bad boy actor Dan Ramsey, recently axed from the lead role in a TV drama and in desperate need of cleaning up his image or he’ll never work again.
Dan can flash those heart-stopping dimples all he likes, Anna tells herself she isn’t going to fall for them. She knows why he’s decided to volunteer at the school, and it’s for the good of his career…not his soul.
But as Anna and Dan are forced to work together for the sake of a truly magical Christmas for the children, sparks fly and they can’t help but wonder what will happen once the festive season is over…
I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I’ve read a few books by Kathryn Freeman and enjoyed them all, this was no exception.
At this time of year, there’s a lot of competition for Christmas books and I think it’s wonderful! I’d read them all if I had the time.
Anna and Dan’s story was simply the perfect blend for a festive romance. It had a little bit of every ingredient required for a perfect, seasonal read.
I think we all have an image in mind when we think of a heartthrob doctor from a TV show. These days, mine’s McDreamy from Grey’s Anatomy. Dan certainly measured up and it was fun imagining his dimples!
A Little Christmas Hope has a marvellous ensemble cast which included kids and adults alike. For me, the gentle blooming of Sid Humphrey was beautifully handled; it was lovely to spot some extra romance in the air.
I try not to include spoilers in my reviews and have no intention of deviating from that, but I don’t feel I’m offering any plot secrets when I confirm the very romantic and happy ending that this book deserves.
If you’re looking for a lovely, festive read. Look no further.
A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero.
I’ve two sons and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), so any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes come in many disguises.
