I love Milly Johnson's books and have them all. I even pre-order them. This book is her best to date. I could picture the characters and the whole theme of the book. I really liked the main characters Eve who was mourning the lose of her partner Johnathan and hating Christmas. I also liked the fact the Eve at times thought her Aunt had lost the plot by leaving her half a 'Winterworld' theme park in her will. A couple of times I had tears rolling down my face as I was laughing so much!

Another brilliant book by that incredible author Milly Johnson. Her books just grip you and pull you in from the word go. I have read every single one of her books, in fact I don't read the book description any more I just order the book. I have never been disappointed. Roll on the next book!!

I absolutely love books with a Christmas theme, not only does it help get you in the mood for Christmas that extra bit early, but it adds a bit more magic and sparkle in a person's life, which is much needed during the cold, wet and windy months of October and November.

To say Eve does not like Christmas is an understatement. After a string of bad Christmases and a particularly heartbreaking one where her fiancé Jonathan was killed in Afghanistan on Christmas Day, Eve has no positive feelings towards the holiday and would rather spend the day alone, hiding away and pretending it does not exist. Eve's Aunt Evelyn sadly passes away, and Eve learns that she has been left something in the will.

Eve attends the solicitors, expecting to be left Aunt Evelyn's locket that she always wore. However, Eve is in for a shock - She has been left a theme park in her Aunt's will. And not just any theme park, but Winterworld - A theme park dedicated entirely to Christmas, the one time of year Eve can't bear. But more interestingly, Aunt Evelyn has stated that she must run the park with her new business partner, a man named Jacques Glace. Having never heard of this man, and with her dislike for the holiday season, this is going to be a big challenge for Eve.

I truly enjoyed this book. From the first chapter I was glued to the pages and I could not put it down! The part that really had me hooked was the mystery of Jacques Glace - From the beginning I was desperate to know the answers that were buzzing in my mind. Who is he? How is he related to Aunt Evelyn and where does he fit in to the puzzle? Why is he being so secretive? What significance did he have in Evelyn's life to be left half of a business in the will? Why did she never mention him?

Format: Paperback
Eve hates Christmas. As a child she spent her Christmas wondering if there would be any food in the house, would she get a present, and which of her Mother's boyfriends would be on the scene. If it wasn't for her Aunt Susan and cousin Violet, Eve would probably never have received anything. Christmas did not get any better as an adult, five years ago Eve's fiance was killed in action in Afghanistan on Christmas Day. Is there any wonder that she would like nothing to do with December at all?
When Eve inherits a Christmas-themed amusement park from her elderly Aunt, she is amazed, she had no idea that Aunt Evelyn had any interests other than Mr Kipling cakes, her two cats and her growing collection of strange Christmas decorations. She is even more shocked and amazed when she learns that Aunt Evelyn has left half of the park to a mysterious stranger - just who is Jacques Glace and where did he come from?

Milly Johnson has that amazing gift of writing stories that can make you smile through your tears. She has created an extraordinary world on the outskirts of Barnsley that is full of magic, yet still has her down-to-earth stamp on it. I sighed as Eve tried her best to ignore the wonderful Jacques, I wanted to grab her and shake her and make her see what was under her nose. I chuckled as I read about the park's transformation into a winter wonderland - overseen by the wonderful character that is Effin - assisted by his crew of Welsh and Polish workers. I wanted to boo and hiss when introduced to Eve and Violet's Grandmother - possibly the nastiest piece of work since Snow White's step-mother.
I love the good old Northern humour, the reality alongside the magic and the little snippets from The Daily Trumpet are wonderful.
A Winter Flame made me smile again, it's like a big huge cuddle in a book, that wrapped me up and sent me on my way feeling as though I'd made some new friends.

Firstly, I love nothing more than a good Christmas read - the more baubles, trees, reindeers I can get, the better. This sounded right up my street - a Christmas theme park! What could be better? I am also a fan of Milly Johnson so surely I was onto a winner here.

The story follows Eve, whose aunt has died and left her a theme park. All is not straightforward though as she is not the only recipient and the theme park must be shared with the mysterious Jacques Glace. Eve's own life has not been straightforward and this should add a deeper element to the book.

Sadly, for me it was all a bit lacking. My main problem with the book was the characters. Eve was a whiney, ungrateful person. I just wanted to give her a damn good shake. Jacques is supposed to be this drop dead gorgeous person...please. He was irritating and full of himself.

The other issue with this book is the ending. I won't give away what happens, but all far too unbelievable and quick. In fact, lots of events in the book felt rushed annd unbelievable, not least of all how she met her fiance. Would that really happen? And he didn't seem such a good catch, considering what he'd done to his long term girlfriend.

I enjoyed the book for the Christmas factor - the building of the theme park, the Christmas descriptions and Phoebe absoutely makes this book but it was no-where near the author's usual standard. I am aware, looking at other reviews, that I am on my own with this but there are far better Christmas reads out there.
