Finding Dad by Jo Bartlett.
Freya Halliwell has always wanted to get married in Kelsea Bay, the place where she spent so many idyllic summers as a child. So when the chance arrives to have a Christmas wedding at Channel View Farm, perched high up on the cliffs above the Bay, everything in her life seems to be falling into place at last—almost two years after losing her beloved mum.
Then a chance discovery in a box of old Christmas decorations changes everything…
A lovely heart-warming read!
Christmas in Switzerland by Melinda Huber (aka me…)
Christmas is approaching, the Lakeside Hotel is full of English-speaking guests, and Stacy and Rico can’t wait to show them a real Swiss Christmas. There’s a visit from the Samiclaus, a Guetzli-baking demonstration, a snowman competition – not to mention the trip to Davos.
But in the middle of all the festivities, a guest has a huge problem and Stacy is left running backwards and forwards, wondering if she’ll last the distance…
Everything you need to know about a Swiss Christmas!
Fake Fiancé for Christmas by Pat Posner.
Best friends Flora and Val will usually do anything for each other. But Flora refuses to pretend she’s engaged to Val’s brother when Val says it will scotch the rumours about Bryce so their uncle won’t disinherit him.
True, many years ago, as a very young teen, Flora idolised Bryce. She’s learned the hard way to stop doing that, though, and it’s no surprise to her when Bryce ridicules his sister’s idea. But then…
Friendships – and families – can be complicated…
A Merry Bramblewick Christmas by Sharon Booth.

Izzy is focusing her attention on the primary school Christmas play. But even with the help of fellow teacher, Ash, she’s beginning to wonder if she’s taken on more than she can cope with.
Find out if she has…
Christmas at the Ginger Cat Café by Zara Thorne (aka Deirdre Palmer)
As far as Isla Marchant is concerned, Christmas is cancelled. Left standing in the church porch with three redundant bridesmaids dressed in black and no groom in sight, it’s no wonder she isn’t feeling festive.
Asked to run The Ginger Cat café in the Sussex village of Charnley Acre while the owners are away, Isla seizes the chance to escape from Nottingham with its constant reminders of what might have been. But…
Can Isla really escape from Christmas?!
And that’s our Christmas selection for 2018. Full details of all the Fabrian Books novels and novellas can be found on the website HERE: Happy Christmas reading!
