Publisher's Summary

Cassie Smith has been out of work for a while but she has an idea. Drawing on her love of Christmas, she begins charging for small things: wrapping presents; writing cards; tree-decorating. She's soon in huge demand and Cassie's business, Calling Mrs Christmas, is born.
Carter Randall wants to make Christmas special for his children, so he enlists Cassie's help, and his lavish requests start taking up all her time. Thank goodness she can rely on her loving partner Jim to handle the rest of her clients.
When millionaire Carter asks Cassie to join his family on a trip to Lapland, she knows she shouldn't go... Suddenly Cassie finds herself facing a heart-breaking choice that could change her entire life.
Join Cassie as she takes you on a romantic and emotional rollercoaster ride in Calling Mrs Christmas.

A perfect Christmas listen

Yes this is predictable, feel good, easy listening chick lit - but I loved it! I think I knew where the story was heading from the first few chapters but this did not spoil my enjoyment of it. Carole Matthews creates such likeable characters that it's easy to become involved in their lives and the story. Julia Franklin narrates this perfectly, her friendly, empathetic tone is perfect for family dramas. A perfect Christmas listen!

Carole conjures up Christmas

While I'm not the kind of guy that reads much 'chick lit' I could certainly appreciate the plotting of this unashamedly Christmassy read. My favourite sections were set at the Young Offenders unit and that sub-plot.

Julia Franklin does a great job at narration, although this somehow highlights the amount of repetition in the novel as the heroine umms and ahhhs, or even just re-caps her situation which I found unnecessary.
