The Christmas Novellas

Meet Britain's worst innkeeper

Put your feet up and tuck into the mince pies, because you won’t have to lift a finger to enjoy this Christmas at the Falling-Down Guesthouse!

Too bad the same can’t be said for single mother and extremely undomestic goddess, Lottie. When her beloved Aunt Kate ends up in hospital just before Christmas, Lottie and her seven-year-old daughter rush to rural Wales to take over her B&B. A picky hotel reviewer and his mad family are coming to stay, and without the rating only he can give them, Aunt Kate will lose her livelihood. 

But Lottie can barely run her own life, let alone a hotel. How will she manage to turn the falling-down guesthouse into the luxurious wonderland the reviewer expects? And could the mysterious taxi driver, Danny, who agrees to help her, turn out to be the real gift this season?

One Winter Wedding, Two Happy Couples, Three Ex-Boyfriends...

Carol hates Christmas. Being recently dumped, she’s not crazy about weddings either. So her sister Marley’s nuptials, over the Christmas weekend, are making her positively Scrooge-like. 

When she arrives for the weekend at the stately home in rural Scotland to find her three ex-boyfriends in attendance, Carol comes face-to-face (to face) with her past. As the snow falls outside and the fire crackles in the hearth, will Carol get her most wished-for gift?

This hilarious tale of family weddings and bad boyfriends will warm even the coldest heart.
