When Liza arrives, she discovers a much-loved business that’s flourishing under Ned’s stewardship. And she’s happy to stay and help for the Christmas season, but then she has other plans.

Cosy. Cheery. Charming! I’m smitten!! This was such a wonderful read, full of all the feels and has me wanting to start up my own Christmas Tree business!!
Liza has a dilemma! Her father passed away, and his pride and joy was the business he set up in Wynmouth selling Christmas trees. But with her father gone she doesn’t want anything to do with the business, so handed the day to day running over to his business partner. It was a deal that suited everyone!
But he’s set to retire, and wanting to hand over the reigns to his relative, and they need Liza home to sort a few things out. She is looking to cut ties and head off travelling and can’t think of anything worse than returning ‘home’.
Ned has a number of new ideas for the business but Liza is a little hesitant about his plans so there’s a bit of early tension. But with a lovely local community around them, and her starting to get a bit more hands on with the business, you wonder what is going through her mind. Should she stay or should she go?!
I fell immediately in love with all the characters! They all had such wonderful hearts and you just want to be part of their community! The setting was magical and the situations they found themselves facing were touching and felt ‘real’ so you could just imagine yourself in similar situations!
A real feelgood and fun Christmas read!! And it’s never too early to read a festive tale so I highly recommend grabbing your copy ASAP!!
