Christmas magic doesn’t really exist – does it?
When Annie Berry collides with Nik Knoll in a car park on the day of her sister’s wedding, it feels like all of Nik’s Christmases have come at once. Annie seems like just the sort of woman he’d like to get to know, and the chance nature of their encounter is almost like, well … Christmas magic.
But Nik has a secret, and he has to be sure that he can trust Annie before he tells her. The problem is that this secret has a Christmas deadline, and time is running out …
Who doesn’t love a magical Christmassy love story? I loved the sound of this from the moment I saw it and I wasn’t disappointed. One Magical Christmas is exactly what it says on the tin, it is a very magical read that is fun, entertaining and a very enjoyable read. This is the first I have read by Ms Stevens and what a wonderful introduction into her work and will definitely be reading more from her.
Annie is helping her little sister with her wedding, her sister has given her just one task and that is to find herself a dress. She find the perfect dress, a beautiful, sophisticated midnight blue number that looks magical and is perfect – even if it did cost an arm and a leg. What she doesn’t know when she sees it, is that this dress is as magical as it looks because this dress changes her life.
Nic runs a children nursery which also includes a few special animals he is on a deadline set by his father because of a huge family secret. For reasons that will be revealed as you read the book, Nic has resorted to online dating – with no success, and later speed dating – equally unsuccessful. He is becoming desperate and time is flying by, he feels that he may fail that is until he literally bumps into the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. Only problem, he didn’t get her number!
But he needn’t worry as the magic of Christmas has rubbed off, they soon find each other. They have a fun and sweet romance that may lead to more, but can Nic trust her enough to tell her his family’s secret?
This is a wonderful Christmas story that is so full of magic, the plot is fun and flows easily from one scene to the next. The two lead character’s are so lovable, you instantly like them and are cheering them on. I thoroughly loved reading this book, it is a simple story of boy meets girl but I have to say it’s a good one. I loved the humour, the stylish writing and the engaging dialogue and it definitely makes your feel all festive.
Wonderful book, very recommended!
