The bit on the back…
Sarah’s committed to her stellar modelling career in New York, but there’s an obligation she needs to fulfil. Harold was a Grandpa to her when she needed him most. Now all Harold wants is one last Christmas in his beloved Waratah Bay Homestead. Sarah’s not that so hot on baking and Christmas seems a bit… challenging… but she’s prepared to fly half way round the world to give it a try.
The only problem is, Harold no longer owns Waratah Bay Homestead. Farming tycoon Max Ramsey owns it now and he doesn’t like company, he doesn’t like Christmas and most of all, he doesn’t like Sarah.
When the two clash, enough sparks ensue to light a Christmas tree. How many enemies does it take to cook one Christmas turkey?
Firstly thank you to Tule Publishing for approving me for a copy of this title via NetGalley. This is the first book in the Christmas Around The World series by 4 different Tule Publishing authors. Although it’s first, it’s the third book in the series that I’ve read so I would say don’t worry if you read them out of order!
The story is all about farmer Max and model Sarah and their Waratah Bay Christmas.
When the series title suggests that the series is Christmas around the world it doesn’t lie! Book one kicks off in Australia in Waratah Bay. I find it really hard to imagine what Christmas in a country like Australia would be like when the weather is completely opposite to Scotland’s so I loved the trip my imagination took in this short read!
Sarah and Max find themselves together in unlikely circumstances and the pull together to bring their old friend home for what they think will be his last Christmas. This storyline is quite heart wrenching and the emotions and feelings of the character seem real. As it’s a short story there is a lot happening in a short period of time and there definitely is some Christmas magic at work! The only thing for me was the relationship between the two main characters progressed at the speed of light and that didn’t feel real but on the whole the characters were well developed and came with backstory that was well detailed and easy to imagine.
