Release date: October 25, 2017

Publisher: Notting Hill Press

Genre: Holiday, Romance 


Put your feet up and tuck into the mince pies, because you won’t have to lift a finger to enjoy this Christmas!

Too bad the same can’t be said for single mother and extremely undomestic goddess, Lottie.

When her beloved Aunt Kate ends up in hospital just before Christmas, Lottie and her seven-year-old daughter rush to rural Wales to take over her B&B. A picky hotel reviewer and his mad family are coming to stay, and without the rating only he can give them, Aunt Kate will lose her livelihood.

But Lottie can barely run her own life, let alone a hotel. How will she manage to turn the falling-down guesthouse into the luxurious wonderland the reviewer expects? And could the mysterious taxi driver, Danny, who agrees to help her, turn out to be the real gift this season?

As the snow sparkles on the trees and hot chocolate steams in your hand, snuggle into the delicious magic of Christmas at the Falling-Down Guesthouse.

I’m so delighted to be the stop on the blog tour for Christmas at the Falling Down Guesthouse today! 


This was such lovely little bite sized read, it’s a novella so it should definitely be read in one sitting, preferably under your Christmas tree with a fire burning brightly and a cozy blanket on your lap! Can you tell I’m ready for Christmas?! This put me in the most beautiful, festive mood and left me with a huge smile on my face.

Lottie and her daughter Mabel were the cutest characters, totally relatable and so much fun. Mabel is seven going on seventeen, the kind of kiddo who says some rather grown up things, which always makes me laugh as I have two daughters who both have the same endearing habit. I don’t want to discuss the plot because it’s such a short read and I’m afraid I’ll spoil it, but this is the perfect read to grab during the holidays when you need to escape the chaos of Christmas and embrace the magic of the season. It has the absolute best combination of humor and warmth with a dash of romance that left me feeling totally satisfied and more than ready to decorate my tree and turn on the Christmas music.

Overall rating: 5/5

Thanks to the author for my review copy.
