Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas jumper - Debbie Johnson

For single mum Maggie, Christmas has always been a family occasion – her daughter Ellen filling the house with her bubbly warmth and mistletoe, her dad Paddy having one too many festive tipples, and the traditional family Christmas tree looking like a drunken elf vomited a rainbow all over it.

But this year, with both Ellen and Paddy away for the holidays, Maggie’s facing a truly blue Christmas – alone with nothing but a bottle of Baileys and an M&S turkey dinner.

Until walking the snowy streets of Oxford, Marco Cavelli quite literally crashes into her life – and, complete with broken leg, becomes her unexpected houseguest. All dreamy brown eyes and 6’5” of gorgeousness, the man is hotter and more delicious than a freshly baked mince pie.

Though Maggie always thought it’s a truth universally acknowledged that you never kiss a man in a Christmas jumper? 

My thoughts:
A nice little holiday romance. 

Maddie got pregnant at 16, and her life was about her daughter and getting a career as a seamstress. But Ellen is 18 now and wants to celebrate xmas in Paris. And Maddie's dad is going away too, while Maddie does realise that she has no life, not really. Which is kind of sad, but understandable too. 

In comes Marco, the guy with the ugly sweaters. I would not have been as nice as she was, hot guy or not. They crashed with their bikes. Leg broken. His brother is going to Scotland. Some one needs to look after him. His family makes Maddie do it. See. Hot guy or not, I would not do it. But hey it's a romance!

They get to know each other, they fall in love. Maddie is the one pushing way. Marco does the chasing ( I do like when a man does the chasing.)

Conclusion:
And then they lives happily ever after. Sweet. 

Cover
cute

PS.

Kindle Edition, 186 pages

I love reading holiday books between November and December. I never have time to read enough, though. This one sounds good and a cute cover, too.

Sophia Rose said...

It's weird to read holiday books in October and even November. I'm with you on that.

Hilarious title and it sounds cute. Her life needed a guy with an ugly sweater in it. ;)

Unknown said...

He's like a dog with a bone(r)

Blodeuedd said...

A stranger in my house...no, that would be creepy

Aurian said...

I don't mind, I can read Christmas stories all year long. But having to take care of a stranger, nope. Hire a nurse people! Especially for the bathroom duty.

Piecraft Bucharest said...

I love this - title, cover, and all :D But, yes, holiday romances definitely taste better in December. Preferably, after all the decorating is done! Great review- I'm intrigued about the guy in ugly sweats, lol :D

Unknown said...

sounds like a cute romance despite her being forced to watch him

Blodeuedd said...

He had a nurse! But he still lived at with the heroine, I get it I get it but still

Blodeuedd said...

So much better, but alas.

Aww decorating, I look forward to that

Blodeuedd said...

Well, she enjoys it

Joyousreads said...

Kinda weird. I'm sure there are extenuating circumstances as to why she agreed. :)

Blodeuedd said...

They bullied her into saying yes cos they hoped they would end up together?

Anna (herding cats-burning soup) said...

I love the title! I read em all year round. Lurves those Christmas ones :D

Blodeuedd said...

Teddyree said...
