Synopsis:

All she wants for Christmas…

Leah Griffiths has woken up after a few too many glasses of Prosecco with a hangover – and discovers she’s accidentally bought a little Christmas tree farm in Scotland!

At first she’s horrified, but perhaps it’s the perfect way to forget all about her cheating ex.

And when she meets grumpy (but ridiculously gorgeous) pumpkin farmer Noel underneath the mistletoe, Leah begins to believe that at Christmas time, anything can happen… 

My thoughts

(Spoiler free)

Snowflakes at the Little Christmas Tree Farm is a sweet, heartwarming story about two people who’ve given up on trusting others, but with hard work and a little Christmas magic, they come to realize life is better when you let others help.

“Don’t underestimate how much courage it takes to throw yourself headfirst into a completely different life. If you can do that, you can overcome whatever else is thrown at you.”

Jaimie Admans, Snowflakes at the Little Christmas Tree Farm

This slow-burn romance is refreshing. I laughed, I swooned, I wanted these two characters to have the happy ending they deserve.

While this book set on a Christmas tree farm is very festive, it’s actually set in the fall. It takes place in October and ends on the last day of November, so it would be a great one to read leading up to the holiday season. A LOT of pumpkins and pumpkin flavored items are involved, which isn’t too surprising since one of our main characters is a pumpkin farmer.

Besides the relationship between Noel and Leah, my favorite thing about this story is the setting. Admans does a wonderful job of making a Christmas tree farm in Scotland come alive. I love the quaint town, the rows of trees, and even the weather. And the ending is perfect!

If you prefer your romances to be slower and less steamy, you’ll enjoy this one! While it did take me a few weeks to read, it’s only because I’d hit a bit of a reading slump thanks to the real world. Every time I picked this one up, I enjoyed it. I look forward to reading more from the author in the future!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)

She loves autumn and winter, and singing songs from musicals despite the fact she’s got the voice of a dying hyena. She hates spiders, hot weather, and cheese & onion crisps. She spends far too much time on Twitter and owns too many pairs of boots.
She will never have time to read all the books she wants to read.

She is the author of chick-lit romantic comedies The Chateau of Happily Ever Afters and Kismetology, and she has also written young-adult romantic comedies Afterlife Academy, Not Pretty Enough, and North Pole Reform School.

A Song For A Book

On Bookstagram I created a hashtag for when I include a song that reminds me of the book I’m sharing, #ASongForABook, I thought I’d make it a regular feature on my reviews, too.

Another thing I really love about Snowflakes at the Little Christmas Tree Farm is the built-in soundtrack! So many Christmas songs are sprinkled throughout the story. It’s another reason I wish I would have read it before Christmas instead of after. 🙂 I decided to go with “Mull of Kintyre” by Paul McCartney. I’d never heard this song, but it’s mentioned at an especially sweet scene, making the scene even sweeter. (Someone else will have to tell me if this is considered a Christmas song in Scotland??)

Smiles in the sunshine and tears in the rain
Still take me back to where my memories remain Flickering embers grow higher and higher
As they carry me back to the Mull of Kintyre
