Publisher's Summary

Christmas has arrived in the town of Wynbridge, and it promises mince pies, mistletoe and a whole host of seasonal joy.

Ruby has finished with university and is heading home for the holidays to save up for her trip around the world in January. Against her father’s wishes, she takes on a stall at the local market and sets about making it the best Christmas market stall ever. There’ll be bunting and mistletoe and maybe even a bit of mulled wine.

But with a new retail park just opened on their doorstep, the market is under threat. So together with all the other stallholders, Ruby devises a plan to make sure that Wynbridge is the first port of call for everyone’s Christmas shopping needs.

The only thing standing in her way is Ruby’s ex, Steve. It’s pretty hard to concentrate on saving the world when he works on the stall opposite, especially when she realises that her feelings for him are still there....

This Christmas make time for some winter sparkle - and see who might be under the mistletoe this year....

Fun Christmas read

Very fun Christmas read. I can’t wait to read her other books in this series. And there are other Christmas books for next year.

Will definitely listen again, but...

Ruby was really self-centered - even the good things she did for the market, which really rather fell into her lap, mostly - never quite redeemed her.
Everyone else was great and the descriptions were wonderful but Ruby was a butt :(

not for me

a dull predictable story with a main character who is so naive she couldn't possibly be an adult in real life. was looking forward to a cosy entertaining Christmas listen but sadly did not hit the mark at all

Great feel good story

Loved this including narrator performance. A lovely listen all round. Though there is a Christmas theme, I was quite happy to read it in February!

Love it!

I really enjoyed this story and felt thoroughly 'Christmassy' by the end of it! Not sure quite how believable Ruby's Father's story line was but hey, it's Christmas!!
Excellent narrator who really enhanced my enjoyment of this book.

I LOVED IT

When I read the summery/ book review I thought that it may be a bit predictable and also a small bit boring ......but I was wrong I really enjoyed this book but I am a woman that loves romance, sparkle, sickly sweet and all fluffy things in life! if you are that kind of person I'm sure you will love this book in fact all of Heidi Swain books.

Fabulous story!

Another fantastic book by Heidi Swain! Loved the story, especially because there were so many twists and turns. I also love the fact that even though all her books can be stand alone, they all link and dip into the lives of previous characters from other books of hers so you can keep up to take with their life progression.

Easy listening.

Brilliant easy binge listening over New Year. A predictable story, however, lovely characters so on to book 3.

Cringeworthy and shallow

I managed to listen to four chapters until I gave up. The shallow, cardboard cutouts of characters that I couldn't care less about, their petty life problems and cringeworthy dialogue was a torture.
