Would you swap sea and sunshine for tinsel and turkey?
Gabby Sanderson is used to being let down – even at Christmas. Which is why she’s happy to skip the festive season completely in favor of a plane ticket and sunnier climes.
But this Christmas could be different, because this time she might not be spending it alone. Can Owen Cooper charm Gabby into loving Christmas in the same way he’s charmed his way into her life, or is he just another person who’ll end up disappointing her?

There are certain authors that I know without a doubt will deliver heartfelt stories any time of the year, but particularity at Christmas… Kathryn Freeman is high on that personal list. Last Christmas season we were given the gift of A Little Christmas Faith which stole my heart, this year A Little Christmas Charm gives us another couple with layers to spare. Gabby and Owen seem, on the surface, to be polar opposites… but dig a little deeper and you’ll find two people who are searching for the very same thing, someplace, someone to belong with forever.
It takes skill to present me with characters who I didn’t particularly warm up to at the start of this journey and slowly, but certainly peal back their layers to allow me to have a glimpse of what happened in their past that shaped them into who they are today, or the events that are driving their reactions at this moment in time. I felt that way about Gabby and Owen. They both have faced disappointments and challenges in their lives to bring them to this point. Now they have a chance to find that elusive happiness and sense of belonging… if they are brave enough to take the risk, and wise enough to show their true colors to each other.
There were many moments in A Little Christmas Charm that had me chuckling out loud, and others that simply broke my heart. That’s what a good story is supposed to do, engage my emotions – and you’ll find a lot of those in this Christmas Romance. Full of interesting characters, beautiful Christmas festivities and locations I was easily caught up in the lives of two people who obviously are attracted to each other, but need a bit of a push to take that final step. If you read and enjoyed A Little Christmas Faith then you’ll be delighted at running into old friends and discovering how they are doing today. (And if you haven’t read the first story, then you certainly should pick it up for it’s a delightful Christmas love story)
In all, I had a wonderful time with A Little Christmas Charm and would recommend it to any reader who loves not only a good story, but a heartwarming Christmas Romance as well.
I own a Kindle edition of this story.
