Book Review: Calling Mrs Christmas by Carole Matthews

Title: Calling Mrs Christmas

Author: Carole Matthews
Publisher: Sphere
Publication Date: 24th October 2013

Cassie Smith has been out of work for a while but she has an idea. Drawing on her love of Christmas, she begins charging for small things: wrapping presents; writing cards; tree-decorating. She's soon in huge demand and Cassie's business, Calling Mrs Christmas, is born.

Carter Randall wants to make Christmas special for his children so he enlists Cassie's help, and his lavish requests start taking up all her time. Thank goodness she can rely on her partner Jim to handle the rest of her clients.

When Carter asks Cassie to join them on a trip to Lapland, she knows she shouldn't go. As much as tries, Cassie can't deny how drawn she is to Carter and everything he has to offer, but she still loves her warm-hearted Jim. Suddenly Cassie finds herself facing a heart-breaking choice that could change her entire life.

I Loved this book so much!!! Eeek sorry got carried away there!
First of all I loved the cover of this new Carole Matthews book, It looked all Christmassy and I knew I was just going to love it.

Cassie Smith has been out of work but suddenly she has an idea, Her love for Christmas gives her the idea to charge people for wrapping presents, writing cards, tree decorating, everything that people with full time jobs struggle to get done when its the countdown to Christmas, Cassie's new business Calling Mrs Christmas is born!
She is soon in huge demand and a big customer Carter Randall wants Cassie to organise everything for him including a trip to Lapland with his kids but then suddenly he invites Cassie to come as well as she has done all the hard work for him..

This book was just fabulous! I am always a huge fan of Carole's books and I knew Calling Mrs Christmas wasn't going to disappoint and It really didn't!
I loved the whole idea that Cassie Smith becoming Calling Mrs Christmas, It is a perfect cash earning business and if you love Christmas too then its just wonderful.

I loved reading this book while curled up on the sofa with a good cup of coco as I love Christmas and this really did get you in the mood for Christmas and feel very festive. The Characters in this are brill! I loved Cassie and her husband Jim, I thought they were ever so sweet but you could see their marriage was strained at times and that's why Cassie seems to like the attention she get's off Carter.
I loved what Jim did for the Kids at the prison he worked at, I really thought that was sweet and feel sometimes in real life there needs to be more people who are out there to help ones that generally need it.

For huge fan's of Carole's books are once again going to love this book as it is very festive, also will make you feel warm inside for all the caring things Cassie does.
