The festive break is a great time to sit back, recharge and relax and sometimes the best way to get in the zone is by getting stuck into a great book.
We recently got our hands on two fantastic winter novels, Love in Winter Wonderland by A Bello and Emily’s Algarve Escape by DCR Bond, that should be on your must-read list this Christmas.
For a true romantic novel with all the festive feels, Love in Winter Wonderland skillfully weaves a heart-warming tale set against the enchanting backdrop of a winter wonderland. Join Trey Anderson, the charismatic owner of Wonderland bookstore, and Ariel, a whimsically creative soul seeking a holiday job, as they navigate a complex relationship while racing against time to rescue the bookstore before Christmas Eve. This novel promises to whisk you away into a world where love and festive spirit intertwine in a delightful and compelling narrative.
If you’re after more adventure, Emily’s Algarve Escape takes you on an adventurous escape to the picturesque Algarve. Readers are transported from the glamorous streets of London’s Knightsbridge to the sun-soaked allure of a new life. Desperation leads Emily to pursue a life of luxury, basking in sun-drenched days and aiming for financial freedom. However, the relocation proves to be far from simple as Emily navigates the challenges of uprooting her family. Bond’s storytelling is immersive, painting a vivid picture of the sun-soaked landscapes and the cultural tapestry of Portugal. Amidst the stunning scenery, the protagonist, Emily, embarks on a journey of self-discovery and love.
Whether you crave the cosiness of winter or the warmth of a Mediterranean escape, these novels promise to be delightful reads for those after a good read over the festive season.
