Back of the book : 

Christmas has come to Rosefont Hill

And its destined to be a particularly special one for Sophie May.

When a smitten stranger emails Sophie to ask her if he can propose to the woman he loves in her cosy teashop, the romantic in her finds it impossible to refuse. Even though Christmas is her busiest time of the year, she has her own sweetheart, Hollywood actor Billy Buskin, to lend a helping hand. How could she say no to making someone’s dream come true ?

As Sophie and Billy work together to plan the perfect fairytale proposal, excitement in Rosefont Hill is mounting. Who is the mysterious man ? And who is the lucky lady he’s about to get down on one knee for ?


What I think : 

Christmas is coming to Rosefont Hill.

Sophie is now running the teashop as Molly has sadly died a few months ago. Billy is with her as he’s decided to take a year off from acting. When she receives a email one night from someone, asking if they can propose in her Teashop on Christmas eve, She says yes, although she doesn’t actually know who it is, as they didn’t leave a name. Just who is it that wants to propose to their love at Christmas … ?

This is a really tiny Christmas short, as its only 54 pages long !  although having said that, much has been packed into this small offering.

It is a sweet little story to get you into the mood for Christmas. I think its always really nice to re-visit characters you’ve already read about to see what they’ve been up too, especially at Christmas. Although I did think that the ending is slightly predicable.

There is also a really handy section at the back with a few little tips to keep you going at Christmas.

I give this 9/10
