An uplifting, beautiful story about never letting go of your dreams, the special magic of a family Christmas...and the rush of falling in love under the mistletoe.
Single mother Abbey Fuller loves her family more than anything and doesn't regret for a moment having had to put her dreams of being an interior designer on hold. But with her son, Max, growing up, when a friend recommends her for a small design job, she jumps at the chance. How hard can it be?
Nick Sinclair needs his house decorated in time for his family's festive visit - and money is no object. What he doesn't need is to be distracted from his multimillion-dollar business - even if it is Christmas.
When Abbey pulls up to the huge Sinclair mansion, she has a feeling she might be out of her depth. And when she meets the gorgeous, brooding Nicholas Sinclair, she knows that she’s in real trouble....
With the snow falling all around, can Abbey take the chance to make her dreams of being a designer come true? And can she help Nick to finally enjoy the magic of Christmas?

The characters didn't feel believable to me.
Yes, as the other book was better.
This narrator was not a match for the character. Her tone did not seem to match the dialogue given to the character. A Xe Sands type voice would have been better for this novel.
Some renovation/small business mention struggle, but not enough. The premise was interesting.
This book should have been right up my alley for Christmas reading, and I was surprised how much it didn't work for me. I do think the narration was a big part of this.
"Predicable but an easy listening Christmas read."
Only when you have the time to waste. It was an easy listening Christmas story but incredibly predicable from the start.
No this is the first.
I found her narration nauseating and I'm surprised I finished the book. Sickly sweet and without real ability to define accents. Therefore everyone sounded the same other than a slightly higher or lower pitched voice!
Determination to finish the book and not press 'mark as finished' before the end!
Tried to be fair with the scoring as it was a predicable feel good story for Christmas but unless you have time to waste and a great deal of patience to put up with the narration - don't bother.
"Feel good Christmas tale"
A lovely (predictable) feel good Christmas tale that has been beautifully narrated. If you are expecting a twist and turn in the tale then this won't be the book for you. I think the narration added to the overall quality of the story. It's a story that could be shared with all the family.
"A fun feel good story"
No. It was a fun read, but too predictable to read it again.
She read the story very slow and I didn't really enjoy how she tried to characterise characters with her voice.
Simply feel good and easy to listen to.
I don't think I would listen to another book by Katherine Fenton's.
