‘What’s not to like about books, star-crossed lovers, pantomime, carols and cake? It’s a festive feast of a novel and I absolutely loved it!’ CATHY KELLY

Ever since Catherine and her mother Ann opened the doors of their bookshop in a small town on Ireland’s west coast, they have been living their dream. And this festive season promises to be their biggest ever, with a celebrity chef due to arrive for an exclusive book signing. But when some seemingly straightforward building work leads to disaster, the future of Lissbeg Books is in real jeopardy.

Desperate to hide from her customers how bad things are, Catherine struggles to cope. And as Christmas draws nearer, she realises that dedication to following her dream has meant other parts of her life have been neglected – what will she have left if she loses the bookshop?

Is it too late for her to become a real part of Finfarran’s tightknit community, and possibly find love along the way? As Catherine summons the courage to ask for help from those around her, she begins to hope that maybe more than just one of her dreams will come true before Christmas arrives. . . .
