I fell in love with Shell and this refreshing, realistic cast of characters. A book that's about so much more than 'Christmas'
Someday at Christmas is the perfect festive story. Sweet, blissfully romantic and bursting with heart, it's completely gorgeous. It's funny, fresh and modern sprinkled with all the magic of a classic Christmas tale. Oh my heart, I loved it!
Warm-hearted, funny and glittering with Christmas magic. I adored my visit behind the scenes at delightful department store Duke & Sons. Someday at Christmas is a gorgeous festive treat.

The literary equivalent of a mince pie warm out of the oven, with a dollop of brandy custard on the side
I read Someday at Christmas in a bath I kept topping up, with a glass of port and a mince pie beside me. It's a gorgeous, cosy read, rich in delicious wintery detail, and Shell is a heroine who'll stay with me, one I was rooting for (both professionally and personally) from page one. In the midst of a strange year, it made me nostalgic for visiting the make-up counter, for occasions that call for great lipstick, for crowded nights in the pub, and for shameless flirting fueled by Christmas cheer.
