Share the love…it’s Christmas!

Debbie Johnson, author of Cold Feet at Christmas chats with us about weddings, Christmas and her first HarperImpulse book!

Cold Feet at Christmas Cover

Christmas weddings…aaah! Mistletoe and wine; country manor houses; crackling log fires, photos by the tree…sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

In reality, my wedding was a little different. It was done as cheaply as possible in a registry office; it was in August, and I was a teeny tiny bit pregnant at the time! Not that any of that matters – the trappings might not have been there, but the love was!

Christmas, in my opinion, is the same way – the trappings play a huge part in our image of it all, but at the end of the day, it’s all about The Love!

In my first HarperImpulse title, Cold Feet At Christmas, our heroine Leah has a fantastic wedding planned – Christmas Eve, a Scottish castle. All the trappings a girl could wish for. Except for the whole love thing, it would have been perfect.

Leah discovers her fiance in a very festive position with one of the bridesmaids, and flees the scene – landing herself stranded in the middle of a snowstorm, with nowhere to go but up.

In many ways, it should have been the worst of Christmasses for her. No presents. No turkey. And certainly no wedding. And yet it turns out to be one of the very best – because ultimately (after a few twists and turns, of course!) – she finds love.

You can have the most beautiful tree in the known universe; the most gorgeously decorated table, and oodles of scrumptious-looking gifts waiting to be unwrapped. But ultimately, the magic of Christmas is all about who you spend it with. That might be your children. It might be your partner. It might be your parents, or friends. It might even be yourself – which can be just as good when you’re in the right state of mind!

It might even be with a bunch of complete strangers – like a wonderful community Christmas party that’s being planned for people who are alone here in Liverpool, where I live.

So while I’m getting excited about finding the perfect tree; and dusting down the baubles, I hold on to that thought. For me, like Leah, ultimately Christmas is all about The Love.  Just ask Monty the Penguin!

Everyone keeps telling Frankie Taylor that a new year is a time for new beginnings. She’s not so sure. Single for six months, she’s been more than happy on her own, thanks very much!

There’s only one way she’s going to find out…

Cover Reveal: Bella Osborne’s It Started at Sunset Cottage

Kate Marshall is slowly getting her life back on track after losing her fiancé. As an author she has been able to hide herself away from the world and its expectations – but now one of her books has been optioned for a film and Hollywood suddenly comes knocking on her door!

It Started at Sunset Cottage Cover

When Kate is given the opportunity to stay at a beautiful country retreat and concentrate on the screenplay, it’s an offer she can’t refuse. Encouraged by her best friend, sharp-tongued single mum Sarah, Kate sees it’s finally time to stop letting life pass her by.

Looking for confidence and inspiration in the idyllic Cotswolds countryside, the last thing Kate expects is for Timothy Calder, A-list actor and leading man in the movie adaptation of her book, to turn up on her doorstep, hoping to lie low after his latest tabloid scandal! But after a rocky start, with Tim narrowly avoiding death by watering can, they find they have a few things in common: a liking for Lady Grey tea, walnut whips and bad ‘knock knock’ jokes. Actually, the bad jokes are just Tim.

As an unlikely friendship begins to blossom, and with circumstances repeatedly throwing them together, is Sunset Cottage where both Kate and Tim’s lives will really start?
