From the internationally bestselling author of Christmas in the Snow comes another spellbindingly beautiful story for winter.
From the Back Cover
On Primrose Hill . . .
Twinkling lights brighten London's Primrose Hill as Christmas nears - but for Nettie Watson, it's not parties and presents that she wants.
Promises are made
For Nettie, Christmas only serves as a stark reminder of the life she used to have . . . One day she made a promise to never leave home, and so far she's stayed true to her word.
Promises are broken
Under the glaring spotlight of the world's media, Nettie is unexpectedly caught up in a 21st century storm . . . Her exploits have made her a global name and attracted the attention of one of the world's most eligible men - front man, Jamie Westlake. But now she has his attention, does she want to keep it?
Praise for Karen Swan:
'Hide indoors and with a glass of wine and lose yourself in this' Heat

I loved Nettie - her fun, vulnerability and insecurities. I was desperate to learn the underlying secret that seemed to define her life and had to hold myself back from peeking ahead. The build up and cuts between chapters is addictive .
I loved the people and relationships in the book- but not the final ending.
Nettie Watson works in Marketing but this latest scene to dress up as a giant blue bunny is not the kind of thing she had in mind. But when the campaign goes viral in unexpected ways, she is thrown into a whirlwind of an experience that is even wild for her.
She attracts the attention of the world’s media as her twitter account and Facebook stats go mad and is particularly excited when one of the world’s most eligible bachelors starts to follow her. He seems keen to meet her and that’s when the real adventure begins.
What on earth has this social media storm unleashed? And what about her quiet Christmas in Primrose Hill?
A tale of social media madness gone wrong but with a very serious message at its core. Testicular cancer must be hard to write about in a plot but Karen weaves it into a tale of social media craziness that gives the message in a fun and light way.Then there’s the subplot about her family which gave another harder edge to the story. Difficult subjects raised but for me the real story was that of how social media can explode in an instant and what the result from this false and fabricated world can result it. I couldn’t see myself dressing up as a blue bunny in London but it did bring changes to Nettie’s life that she might not have had otherwise.
Primrose Hill and its snowy landscape is not the real setting of the story but rather the chaotic landscape of a social media campaign going viral and having very different results from the one that is expected. A fun look at the modern day maze of marketing that’s for sure. So next time you’re in Trafalgar Square, just look up….just in case.
This was a very modern story where some of the current trending hashtags were playing a big part, what with a Blue Bunny Girl having to copy them - and this is a little minus point from me, because I thought Karen could think about something totally new and exceptional, right? Nevertheless, it was really up - to - date, with the campaign going viral quicker than we can say "hashtag". It just perfectly captured how, in fact, the modern technology controls our life, but what I liked is that Karen Swan has decided to use this internet obsession for good reasons.
Karen Swan has again gave us what we are looking for in her books, first and foremost brilliant characters. I can't remember her book where I wouldn't like the main heroine, and this time I also fell for Nettie mightily. Then we have Jamie, the impossible happening possible. I loved Nettie and Jamie's story, they were so genuine in all that they did or said, and what I liked most was that the relationship was not the easiest one, not the obvious one. - there was never a certainty to how it's going to end.Read more ›
</strong>Nettie Watson becomes an internet sensation by accident whilst working at a charity event. #Bluebunnygirl goes viral and attracts the world's media and pop star Jamie Westlake. Bluebunnygirl and her exploits are far removed from the life of Nettie who still lives at home with her dad after a devestating family event. Christmas for her and her dad is a time to remember what they have lost rather than a time of celebration and no one can give her the present she would really like. But as bluebunnygirl and her challenges grow in popularity she grows closer to Jamie Westlake and she may have a chance of a happy ending if she can move on from the past and look towards the future.
For the past few years I have read one of Karen Swan's Christmas novels every Christmas. This is last years publication which for some reason I didn't get round to reading. I know when I pick up one of her novels that I am going to enjoy the story and the writing and this book didn't dissapoint. It was well written and as well as being a funny, romantic Christmas read it also dealt with more serious issues such as testicular cancer and the distress caused by a missing family member, both dealt with empathy. The story line is very contemporary in its dealings with social media and how it can make someone famous in the click of the button, and also forget about them as fast.
I loved the characters, especially Nettie with her vulnerability and loyalty to her dad even if that means not moving out or following her heart.
This is a great Christmas read full of fun and romance that will keep your attention from the beginning to the end. If you haven't read any of Karen Swan's books before I highly recommend them. In a couple of weeks I will review this years Christmas read, Christmas Under the Stars.
