Blurb: For Tamsin Angel, Christmas is always the biggest and best… chic parties and a little showbiz sparkle are a must. This year though, things aren’t going quite as planned…

With bailiffs suddenly at the door and her husband nowhere to be found, it looks like Christmas just got downsized. Moving into her sister’s one-bedroom flat, she wonders whether things will ever be the same again.

After losing her husband on Christmas Eve, Sam Angel has rebuilt her life around her son Jacob and her new business – The White Angel Bakery. She’s also found herself a very handsome, loving boyfriend, but is struggling to let go of the past.

Thrown together with a sprinkle of Christmas magic, Sam and Tamsin might just learn a little more about each other – and themselves. But when disaster strikes at the bakery, will they be able to save the day in time for Christmas?


This book has a pretty festive cover and the story is just wonderful. While reading the book it made me feel that it’s snowy December instead of rainy October. It truly is heart-warming and hilarious, but also connected with serious issues like grief, abuse, lies and cheating.

Tamsin and Sam are sisters, but their lives are totally different, Tamsin is use to have money, and throw the biggest and best Christmas parties, while Sam lives in a small apartment above the bakery where she works at. Sisters’ lives change, when bailiffs appear at Tamsin’s door and she has to move to her Sam’s apartment. Living together makes them open up to each other and we learn that not all what seems perfect outside may not be so perfect inside. Life can get hard, but nothing is impossible, if you work hard on it, and if you have supportive and caring people around you. Another important aspect is that it’s not money what makes you happy and have the perfect life with perfect people in it, but people who genuinely love you. Do what makes you happy and surround yourself with people who make you happy.

It’s a magnificent Christmassy story, I really enjoyed it.
