Each Christmas brings a new Santa sack full of Christmas-themed romance novellas; it would be difficult to read them all, but some are definitely worth making time for. Operation White Christmas by Nicki Edwards is one of those.
Hollie Douglas leaves behind a cad and country New South Wales to head to the northern hemisphere to fulfil a long-held dream: her first white Christmas. But if she thought her year was already not going to plan, a wintry Canadian landscape has more surprises in store for her – specifically, handsome widower Jim Bell, who comes across Hollie when her car comes off the road. Hollie is convinced that her perfect Christmas is never going to happen – but Jim has other ideas …
Edwards strongly evokes place and emotion in this incredibly satisfying Christmas story. You can feel the cold of the Canadian winter and the warmth of the protagonists’ hearts. The story is plausible, touching and easy to read (the latter being a compliment of the highest order, as it’s not easy to achieve) and if you buy it right now there’s still plenty of time to read it before Christmas. You’ll be glad you did.
Operation White Christmas by Nicki Edwards is published by Momentum.
