About The Book
Could it be the start of her happy ever after?
Ashleigh could use a little Christmas magic. She’s still living in Brighton with her Nan–who could give the Grinch lessons in how to be miserable–her acting career has been reduced to playing one of Santa’s elves, and not even the prospect of a friend’s winter wedding can cheer her up…That is until Olivier, the gorgeous French chef, reappears in her life. Or more accurately, next door.When they were teenagers, Olivier would spend every other Christmas with his mother, who just happens to be Ash’s neighbour and owner of the best chocolate shop in England.If anyone can bring a little sparkle back to Ash’s life, it’s Olivier. All she needs is one kiss beforeChristmas..
Are you following your dreams or your parents’ dreams?
This is a question everyone asks to themselves at least once in their life, are you working in your job because you like it or because your parents pressure you to do it? Are you married with the person you love or the one that your parents like?
This is a love story, but at the same time it will question the reader if the choices they have made in all their life are influenced by other people or because they wanted to do it. And I think that this is a very important point in any adult person, to value and respect our life choices, even if we have to disappoint our families sometimes, it’s important that we respect enough ourselves to follow our dreams and passions.
This is the story of Ashleigh and Olivier, they were “friends” when they were young but it has been years since they have seen each other, now fate has made them meet again. He works in Paris while she works in Brighton; he follows his father steps, she follows her mother steps; but the main question is, are they following their dreams?
There are some sub-plots mixed on the romance between Ash and Olivier, friends and family will be part of the story too, making it more interesting and in my case wanting to know more about the secondary characters (maybe in another book?).
This is a book that will put a smile to any reader, sweet and realistic will make you dream of a better life and a sweet Christmas kiss. Ready?
