Home For Christmas by Cally Taylor
Beth Prince has always loved fairytales and now, aged twenty-four, she feels like she’s finally on the verge of her own happily ever after. She lives by the seaside, works in the Picturebox – a charming but rundown independent cinema – and has a boyfriend who’s so debonair and charming she can’t believe her luck! There’s just one problem – none of her boyfriends have ever told her they love her and it doesn’t look like Aiden’s going to say it any time soon. Desperate to hear ‘I love you’ for the first time Beth takes matters into her own hands – and instantly wishes she hadn’t. Just when it seems like her luck can’t get any worse, bad news arrives in the devilishly handsome shape of Matt Jones. Matt is the regional director of a multiplex cinema and he’s determined to get his hands on the Picturebox by Christmas. Can Beth keep her job, her man and her home or is her romantic-comedy life about to turn into a disaster movie?
This was a charming romantic read, and I loved every minute of it! Beth is a down-to-earth, realistic heroine, and I felt like we could be BFF’s. I highly enjoyed Cally Taylor’s writing style, and will definitely seek more from her. The plot lines that connect Beth and Matt were spot-on, and I didn’t want this book to end. I enjoyed the ambition Beth showed as well, that made her even more likeable to me! I was engrossed in Home For Christmas the whole way through, and this is a 5 star worthy read – and not just a seasonal one!
