I read this over the holiday period and enjoyed seeing how someone who really didn't enjoy the festive season for personal reasons, was thrown into a situation where she couldn't avoid it. It is a love story, with lots of characters that you come to love or hate....an easy read which pleased me.

Janna and Alistair find the Christmas season difficult for similar reasons and where one tries to embrace the holiday, the other does their best to avoid it. When Janna is sent by work to try and salvage the company Alistair is desperately trying to keep together, they discover they have more than just their feelings about Christmas in common.

This is a very quick read that didn't really have much going on. There was a hint of a romance between Janna and Alistair but nothing to en-capture the heart and rejoice the Christmas spirit. There was not even one kiss shared between them like you would expect in a romance. This story could have carried on a bit further like exploring events on Christmas day. I'm so glad this was a free buy, this story is okay but not great and once read it is unlikely to be reread.

Lovely seasonal short story, Janna works in a top London PR form. She is sent against her better wishes to Scotland to do a consultation with Alistair who runs a failing Christmas tree farm. Janna hates Christmas so to be snowed in while out there is her worst nightmare. Things go from bad to worse when Alastair tells her rather than lose any employees he is going to terminate her contract.
In the course of being stuck at the family estate Janna and Alistair explore their mutual dislike for Christmas and is that romance that can be felt in the air?
Nice easy read and some wonderful characters.

Really enjoyed this book,but I wish this had been longer! I liked Alistair and Jana and would have loved to see how they handled the festive season. Great characters, just wish it had been a longer book.

Ok, it's a novella, and an Xmas one at that, but I was hoping for a bit of passion under the fir trees (the tale is all about them, boringly) if not the mistletoe, but this was not what I got.

She's a bah-humbug type, at her Xmas do, and unknown to her, he's a client of the firm, whose business is supplying Xmas trees, and lives in Scotland. She's from Chelsea and in PR and advertising, but his firm is doing badly, and he hates London; he's there under duress. She badmouths Xmas, which shocks him, so there ends their...brief interaction. He then bogs off home, so does she, and the next day she's sent to Aberdeen, to meet with 'a client' and take care of an emergency.

I kind of think the author was hoping for 'sparks flew', but the only sparks I saw was when he got angry at some of her helpful suggestions. No real attraction, though allegedly he had to remind himself she was there on business, and then she got snowed in. Even I, who hate sales and marketing, know that staying in busines and in competition is all about diversifying and USPs, but this guy didn't have a clue - and he was in charge of a seasonal business. Puhleese.

No passion, nothing even vaguely Xmassy romantic, but plenty of snow, trees and cold. Sorry. A waste of my time. But, the style was good, there were no errors and clearly, someone with editing skills had cast an eye over this.

WARNING SPOILERS CONTAINED IN REVIEW.

This was a very short book about a London business woman and a Scottish land owner. They are brought together as Alastair's Christmas tree company uses Janna's advertising firm. This wasn't really a love story, more of a promise of one that could develop in the future. My thoughts when I started the book were that I enjoyed the authors writing style but this was spoilt but the rushed feel of the story. It seemed to follow the [u]old[/u] Mills and Boon style of trying to create conflict between the hero and heroine, only to have it resolved with a deeper understanding of their personalities. However, the book was too short for this kind of conflict and Alastair's 360 degree turn on the idea of a golf course felt contrived and unrealistic. I felt that it would have been better published as a short story in a woman's magazine or as part of a compilation of short stories, rather than a stand alone book. I didn't really enjoy this story but would read other works by this author as I did like her writing style.

This started very promisingly but ended with a real whimper. Not even a kiss. The heroine wasn't very likeable and the hero sounded wimpy but if you like Scotland, and trees then this is one for your list.

Okay, this is a Christmas story that I read in June, but I was determined to read all the books on my Kindle before I downloaded more.
The story itself was good, but the ending could have been so much more. It is a shame more wasn't made of it and the story was made longer. Okay for a freebie.
