Ok, i know it's only September but i'm on the hunt for a good Christmas themed book. I'll be buying a batch of books in the next few weeks and it will probably be the last i buy before Xmas hence the early request! I read Christmas at Tiffanys by Karen Swan last year and altough i enjoyed it, the Christmas element only lasted for a few pages!! I want something that will really put me in the Christmas mood, something cosy that is actually fully focused on the Christmas theme. Thanks for any suggestions! x

Debbie Macomber has written a few Christmassy books. Look out for them at 'The Works' or similar. I get them for my Mum and Aunt as presents and they look forward to them

The Twelve Days of Christmas by Trisha Ashley should fit the bill. Think she's written another one based around Christmas aswell, though I haven't read that one yet. Also, Sarah Morgan published some christmassy ones last year. You could also check out Julia Williams, Annie Sanders and Carole Matthews too who have all written Christmas based fiction in the past. Hope this helps! :)

You and the other posters might want to have a look at Rock Crystal (NYBR Classics)--a Christmas story that's a bit different to others I know of.

'Skipping Christmas' by John Grisham

SKIPPING CHRISTMAS [Skipping Christmas ] BY Grisham, John(Author)Mass Market Paperbound 26-Oct-2010

Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded shops, no corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted presents. That's just what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, just this once, they'll skip the holiday altogether. Theirs will be the only house on the street without a rooftop Frosty the snowman; they won't be hosting their annual Christmas Eve bash; they aren't even going to have a tree. They won't need one, because come December 25 they're setting sail on a Caribbean cruise. But, as this weary couple is about to discover, skipping Christmas brings enormous consequences-and isn't half as easy as they'd imagined. A classic tale for modern times, Skipping Christmas offers a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that has become part of our holiday tradition.

I've enjoyed the Christmas books by Julia Williams as mentioned by Nicola. I'll check out some of the other authors as well.

C Rucroft - I really enjoyed the X-mas factor - a bit different I thought. There seem to be so many authors with Christmas books out, I don't know which to choose but I fancy Scarlett Bailey's Married by Christmas - I know this is shallow, but I love the cover!

@ Liz. I think Scarlett Bailey's new book looks brill but my mother-in-law says you have to read the first one - 'The Night Before Christmas' first. I have them both, it's just getting round to reading them x
