About the Book

Twelve Days to Save Christmas by Elizabeth Neep.

Genre: Women’s Fiction.

On the first day of Christmas, my true love… dumped me.

Poppy loves Christmas and always goes all out to make this magical time of the year extra special for her boyfriend George. But George is strangely not in the Christmas spirit this year. As Poppy wrestles him into her Christmas jumper built for two for a holiday snapshot, she finds out why.

He’s leaving her. With only twelve days to spend together before Christmas.

Poppy is heartbroken. Her perfectly planned Christmas lies in tatters. She knows they are meant to be together and she’s not going to give up on their five-year relationship without a fight. She still has twelve days to get her man back and save Christmas…

But festive surprises aren’t only found under the tree. In her quest to make George see they are destined for each other, Poppy might end up finding out the truth about him. And discover the man she is truly meant to spend this Christmas with…

This delightfully fun, festive romantic comedy is perfect for anyone who has had a Christmas that didn’t quite go to plan. Fans of One Day in December, Sophie Kinsella and Mhairi McFarlane will be completely enchanted by Elizabeth Neep’s witty and warm story about finding true love and discovering yourself along the way.

Review

Poppy – who is one of the best characters I’ve ‘met’ in a long time she is wonderful a very realistic and relatable young woman who mere weeks before her favourite time of the year; Christmas he beloved boyfriend, the man she loves before everything else decides this is it, he’s had enough of her ‘clinginess’ of how ‘needy’ she is and whats to end their relationship. Heartbreak alert!!

She has spent the last five years loving him, she is devastated how can he think that she is too much? She just likes to show him how much she loves him and that’s ok, right? It’s fine to shower him with love every day, well that is what she thinks and I do think that George (her boyfriend) has a point she has invested her five years of her life to him, I do think that she is a little tied up to making him happy instead of looking after herself too. But, still, you want to get the ice cream out and sob with her in front of a boxset.

So our Poppy comes up with a devilish plan, she isn’t going to sit around sobbing while George walks out of her life, she comes up with a plan to not only save her relationship but to save her Christmas too. So the Twelve Days to Save Christmas begins and this is when the story gets interesting!

Once you fully sink into the story and start reading between the lines it’s a story all about not saving Christmas or saving a relationship this is all about finding your own feet. Poppy is hugely insecure, she is clingy and she is in a bad place of not knowing herself or even what she wants she has relied on the fact that George has always been there, she has lost a part of herself in her need to make him happy, which I found rather sad. But in her plan to save her relationship and her Christmas she starts to come out of her shell, she finds friends finds a purpose and more than that she finds her self-worth.

I loved watching Poppy grow from a meek insecure young woman who has no self-confidence to a stronger more self-assured woman who learnt how to live life instead of living through someone else. She went out of her comfort zone and by the end, through all the turmoil she was much happier for it.

This is my first book by Elizabeth Neep and I was hooked!! I loved her fun, laugh-out-loud, romantic, and hugely festive and feel-good writing, this book has it all. It’s a little chaotic – but when is Christmas not a huge chaotic mess? I loved it, it’s the perfect book for winding down, having a jolly good laugh and feeling all Christmassy, what more could you want?

Overall, this is a charming and delightfully funny book, full of Christmas spirit and perfect for the festive season.
