Engaging Father Christmas: blog tour

Miranda Carson can't wait to return to England for Christmas and to be with her boyfriend, Ian. She has spent a lifetime yearning for a place to call home, and she's sure Carlton Heath will be it, especially when a hinted-at engagement ring slips into the conversation.

But Miranda's high hopes for a jolly Christmas with the small circle of people she has come to love are toppled when Ian's father is hospitalized and the matriarch of the Whitcombe family withholds her blessing from Miranda. Questions run rampant in Miranda's mind about whether she really belongs in this cheery corner of the world. Then, when her true identity threatens all her relationships in unanticipated ways, Miranda is certain all is lost.

And yet...maybe Father Christmas has special gifts in store for her after all.

My Review:

This is one to get for yourself! Just make sure that you first read Finding Father Christmas. Don't get me wrong, this book stands perfectly well on its own, but why deny yourself the pleasure of more lovely hours curled up with a cup of tea, contentedly reading wonderful Christmas fiction?

Robin Gunn Jones creates a cozy place in England called Carlton Heath that has all of the elements an Anglophile could hope for, tea, scones, shortbread cookies and romance. Add to the recipe characters that are flawed but love one another, a gentle story of redemption, and you have the perfect Christmas inspirational story.

Elsa can't wait to get her hands on this book after her exams!
