An uplifting, beautiful story about never letting go of your dreams, the special magic of a family Christmas… and the rush of falling in love under the mistletoe.

Single mother Abbey Fuller loves her family more than anything, and doesn’t regret for a moment having had to put her dreams of being an interior designer on hold. But with her son, Max, growing up, when a friend recommends her for a small design job she jumps at the chance. How hard can it be?

Nick Sinclair needs his house decorated in time for his family’s festive visit – and money is no object. What he doesn’t need is to be distracted from his multi-million dollar business – even if it is Christmas.

When Abbey pulls up to the huge Sinclair mansion, she has a feeling she might be out of her depth. And when she meets the gorgeous, brooding Nicholas Sinclair, she knows that she’s in real trouble…

With the snow falling all around, can Abbey take the chance to make her dreams of being a designer come true? And can she help Nick to finally enjoy the magic of Christmas?


Single mother Abbey Fuller has been hired by her elderly patient to decorate a mansion for Christmas. She’s completely unsure of what to expect when she meets the owner, but the aloof Nick Sinclair is not at what she expected. He has more money than he knows what to do with, collecting cars and throwing down a decorating budget that could support a family. She sets to work hanging mistletoe and putting up trees while also breaking down the walls around Nick’s heart. He’s a workaholic for a reason, and she’s about to get caught up in his life.

I loved the feel good ending, the clean story line and the plot twists near the end. Nick was so  standoffish and guarded, it is hard for the reader to truly get to know him. He felt a bit flat to me. Finally at the end there are slits of light into who he can become. This is a feel good, hopeful read and I recommend it to fans of women’s lit. Thanks to Netgalley for a fun Holiday read!
