I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

    I don’t usually read Christmas books Olga. But as usual, your review makes me want to! 🙂 x

    1. I am no big fan of Christmas, Debby, but I don’t mind so much the books and some of the movies, especially when they are not the only thing around. To be honest, there are many other things in the book and the actual Xmas bit of it is quite nice. I have a soft spot for incredibly nice small towns (I guess I’d like to find my own). Have a great week, Debby!

        I hear you Olga. 🙂 Happy week to you too. <3

  2. A most interesting review as always, Olga. You manage to convey the good and the less good in the book but still leave an overall positive message. Congratulations on your top 100 achievement.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I think you would enjoy the book. And there are great blogs on the list (not mine, in particular) including Rosie’s. Have a fabulous week.

  3. Too funny. Today on my blog, I am moaning that Halloween is being promoted far too early, then I come here and see a Christmas book! Aaargh! 🙂
    Well done with that top 100, Olga. Well-deserved, of course.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I think it is Halloween month. With books, I guess you need to launch the book plenty in advance, especially if you use traditional publishing. All the best.

  4. Hi Olga. You certainly seem to have enjoyed this story despite not being a Christmas fan. It shows how open minded you are. I don’t understand the enthusiasm people have for Christmas, and here, there’s hardly a break from it all year. However, I do love a happy ending. This sounds like a nice story. Thanks for another mindful review. Hugs!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I guess when I got the story the actual Christmas was far away enough not to feel too bothersome (a snowy Christmas in the middle of a hot summer sounded like a bread, to be honest). And the story had a lot of other bits as well, is varied, and the characters are likeable. I was on holiday as well, so that helped, I’m sure. Big hugs!
