Publisher's Summary

Get into the festive spirit with this heartwarming, funny and simply gorgeous Christmas read. The eagerly awaited new novel from the Sunday Times best-selling author. This Christmas is about to go off with a bang!
Things can't possibly get worse for Tabby. Framed for a crime she didn't commit, she suddenly finds herself without a job. Then, to make matters worse, Tabby's boyfriend dumps her and gives her cat away to a shelter. But rescue comes in the form of kindly Mercy.
A master of saving waifs and strays, Mercy wants Tabby to breathe new flair into her ailing cracker business. Together they'll save Marwood's magical Christmas crackers. But someone has other ideas. Mercy's nephew, Randal, thinks Tabby's a fraudster.
Stubborn, difficult and very attractive, her future depends upon winning him round. But it's that time of the year when miracles really can happen. Standing under the mistletoe, Tabby's Christmas is set to be one that she will never forget....

Feel-good & entertaining

Once you get past the beginning, and the heroine's initial monumental misjudgement, this turns into an excellent and engrossing story. I wasn't entirely keen on the narrator's voice, but I guess that's just a subjective thing. It certainly wasn't enough to spoil my enjoyment of this definitely feel-good book.
