Book Review: Just For Christmas by Scarlett Bailey

Title: Just For Christmas
Author: Scarlett Bailey
Publisher: Ebury
Publication Date: 7th November 2013

Her best friend's wedding...

When Alex Munro learns that the love of her life is getting married to another girl, all she wants is to be alone - and as far away from Edinburgh as possible.

Moving to a Cornish cottage, which comes complete with the world's scruffiest dog, Alex finds that her new neighbours are determined to involve her in their madcap Christmas festivities.

Then she meets her sexy neighbour Ruan - and somehow Alex doesn't want to be alone this Christmas after all. But having lost one fiancé, Ruan has no intention of letting anyone get close to him again...


Yep its correct i've read a Christmas book in September...ooops!
I never got chance to read Just for Christmas last Christmas and i just had the urge to read a Christmas book the other day so I picked Just for Christmas off my shelve and settled down to get sucked in, and Straight away you are sucked in with the little Cornish village that Alex Munro has escaped to..

I loved the book so much, I loved the Christmas feel but also the real life dramas that happens around that special time too. Alex Munro is the new Harbour Master in the little Cornish village of Poldore in which she has escaped miles and miles away from Edinburgh from her best friend Marcus and her Dad...

Bouy is definitely the star of the book at the start being the smelly old dog who won't leave Alex alone and follows her everywhere to then being the hero and helping Alex in a situation.
I Loved all the characters so much especially Alex and Ruan, you could tell they had chemistry although Ruan wasn't letting himself get close to anybody again after his girlfriend left him.
Alex seemed such a sweet lass but also still in love with her best friend in which you know is never going to happen but she got stuck in with her work right away!

The village of Poldore really does stick in your mind and there's a few times while I was reading I wanted to be right there in the village with it being Christmas. You also can tell the village come together when there is trouble which is fantastic!

I have read Scarlett Bailey's Previous books and I loved them loads so I knew I was going to love Just For Christmas just as much! The Cover is beautiful and very glittery which stands out on shelves for sure!
Just For Christmas deserves 5 Magical, Christmassy, Romantic Stars and I look forward to read more of Alex & Ruan!
