WINNER OF THE RNA ROMANTIC COMEDY OF THE YEAR AWARD 2019
‘Such a funny, sparky book… An ideal read for anyone who is a fan of Christmas or dogs – or both!‘ Sophie Kinsella Charlie hates the holidays, and this year is shaping up to be her worst yuletide ever. Her boyfriend has left her for his personal trainer, her flat is out of bounds after a gas leak, and her mother has gone to spend Christmas in Melbourne with her fifth husband. Finding herself single, mildly concussed and temporarily homeless, Charlie hesitantly agrees to dust off her wellies and spend the festive season in Devon, looking after Cosy Canine Cottages, her cousin Jez’s dog-care centre.
However, her plans for a quiet rural Christmas with only the four-legged friends for company are dashed as soon as she meets Malcolm the deaf Great Dane, Hugo, his gorgeous (but engaged) owner, and Cal, the undeniably attractive but unbearably haughty and patronising local vet…
‘Fabulous romantic escapism’ Heat
* Not Just for Christmas is published as Mutts and Mistletoe in the US. *
Such a funny, sparky book. I thoroughly enjoyed romping through the pages with Charlie and all the characters - especially the canine ones. An ideal read for anyone who is a fan of Christmas or dogs - or both!
