Wrapped up in You is Carole Matthews 19th novel.

Janie Johnson is a 30 something single hairdresser living on her own in a little cottage in Buckinghamshire with just Archibald the Aggressive (her cat!) for company.

Her Clients and Friends constant check on her love life gets her down. Nightmare blind dates and the news that her Ex is getting married and his Fiancee is with child pushes her over the edge. Before she knows what she is saying she blurts out that she is off on an Adventure to Africa!

Arriving in the baking heat in Maasai Mara in Kenya whilst the UK is covering in Christmas snow with the knowledge that all her friends think she has lost the plot! Janie meets Dominic, a Maasai Warrior who is to be her guide for the next week and who takes her breath away the moment she meets him. Can "Just" Janie stop herself falling head over heels in love with Dominic and return to her boring in life in the UK or could she dream of a happily ever after with him?

I was delighted to get an advanced copy of Carole's latest book armed with a hot chocolate and a blanket, (well it is a Christmas read) I set about Janie's journey. Straight away I was hooked and couldn't put it down. Janie is a very loveable character and I could understand her need to show her friends she had the guts to try something different with this trip to Africa. The sheer joy of her relationship with Dominic and the tenderness Carole writes of their developing love at the beginning of the story had me turning the pages to see what happens next.

An absolutely delightful story, packed full of comedy moments and also the changing dynamics of friendships as people reach new chapters in the lives.

Wrapped Up in You is the first of the current crop of Christmas themed books which I have read. I was drawn in by the cover and the other Carole Matthews books which I've also enjoyed. And I wasn't disappointed.

I immediately empathised with the plight of Janie in her dead end job, trying to make a life for herself after being dumped by her boyfriend. I laughed at her disasterous blind date and her accidental acquisition of a persistent, obnoxious stalker. I loved her next door neighbour Mike who was a tower of strength for Janie which she needed one. I even grew to like her toxic friend Nina who had problems of her own. But for me, the novel really gets into its stride when Janie and Dominic meet in the Maasai Mara and he sleeps outside her tent to protect her from the wildlife (and her fears). It's the first time Janie's felt protected and cared for - and it's a feeling she doesn't want to relinquish.

We are rooting for Janie from the get go when she takes the initial - and for her, giant step - of going on holiday to the Maasai Mara to break out of the rut she's in. And when she almost bankrupts herself to return to Africa for a second time and brings home her own personal souvenir, we've got our fingers and toes crossed and hope that it'll all work out for her - and Dominic.

I don't want to give away the plot [I hate when reviewers do that!]. All I will say is: if you want to follow Janie and Dominic's path to happiness and true love as they fight against prejudice and ignorance - then get out the box of kleenex, top up your hot chocolate with marshmallows and squirty cream and prepare for an emotional ride. By the end of it you'll have forgotten all about Christmas Lists and on-line shopping and will want Santa to bring you a Maasai warrior of your very own!! Just like Just-Janie.

Format: Paperback
Janie is just an ordinary girl, and single for way too long. So long that her friends and clients at the hairdressing salon are trying to fix up her love life. She tries to convince even herself that she is happy being single.

Lovable Mike, is the divorcee from next door. He is a good friend to Janie and she would be lost without him. He is always there for Janie and wants to be more than just a good friend.

Lewis is Janie's blind date, never to be repeated, who just doesn't get the message that Janie is not interested.

One of Janie's regular customers suggests she goes on holiday to Africa. Janie would never think of going to Africa on holiday alone! But she does just that after blurting it out whilst trying to look for an excuse not to attend her ex-boyfriend's wedding!

Lovable Mike, takes Janie to the airport and tells Janie about his true feelings. It is not what Janie wants right now.
Once Janie arrives in Africa she is still unsure how she managed to get into this situation. How will she sleep at night with all those wild animals out there?
That is where her Maasai Warrior guide, Dominic comes into the picture.
Dominic is completely different to the last blind date, Lewis the creep. Dominic is the perfect romantic and exotic hero without even trying.

When Janie finishes her African holiday and returns home to England all she can think about is her holiday romance. Was it just a holiday romance or can they have a future together when their lives are so different?

I really enjoyed a different take on boy meets girl in this storyline. These two characters are so different and their lives are worlds apart.
