Review of What Happens at Christmas by T A Williams - Five *


The perfect holiday read, a feel-good festive romance with hot chocolate, tinsel and mistletoe by the bucket-load!

For the perfect Christmas…
When career-girl Holly Brice learns that her estranged father has died, she decides to take a trip down memory lane and find out about the man she never knew.
Arriving in the sleepy little Dartmoor village, she’s shocked to discover that she’s inherited the cosy little cottage she remembers so fondly, a whole load of money – and her father’s adorable dog, too!
Head to snow-covered Devon!
And as the first snowflakes begin to fall and Holly bumps into her gorgeous neighbour, Jack Nelson, life gets even more complicated! Men have always been off the cards for high-flying Holly, but there’s something about mysterious writer Jack that has her re-thinking her three-date rule…


A village full of lovely people, a wonderful dog, an open minded heroine and 2 hunky men - the book is a complete Christmas gift!

I loved Holly and her 3 date limit and I particularly enjoyed the way she learned about her late father. How all the pieces came together gradually. I admired her for not being judgemental, which would have been the obvious result. I also enjoyed the way the similarities between Holly and George kept appearing throughout the book.

Julia was a real character with a brilliant sense of humour! Some of the stuff she came out with had me laughing out loud!

Jack and Justin were such nice men and I'm glad it came good for all of them in the end!

Great book - one of the best Christmas reads this year!
