Wealthy New York City girl Claire Lindell isn’t looking for a Christmas miracle or happiness when she abruptly decides to hole up for the holiday at her godmother’s cottage in a little Yorkshire village, and lick her wounds from a near disastrous romantic decision.

After her car skids into a snow bank, Claire may have accidently found her perfect Christmas and the family and love she’s craved when she offers Noah Bradford of Ayesgill Farm help to push the back end of one of his sheep out of the icy mud, even if she’s going to ruin a brand new pair of Prada boots during the rescue.

What’s a little leather when love’s on the line?

First Line of  A Yorkshire Christmas by Kate Hewitt

“How to have a perfect Christmas.”

My thoughts on A Yorkshire Christmas by Kate Hewitt

This book isn’t breaking new ground when it comes to Christmas Romance.  But it does exactly what it should do.  It introduces you to two interesting characters, a fabulous English setting in the Yorkshire dales and sprinkles some Christmas spirit.  It’s fun, it’s sparkly and perfect for a lovely cosy read.

Claire is escaping from her New York lifestyle and she has some very definite plans for Christmas.  Which to be honest, don’t sound too bad to me.  Minus the essay marking.

“So, she’d hole up in Ledstow, in Yorkshire, reading books and marking essays, enjoying the luxuries of solitude and quiet, a bottle of wine, and a roaring fire”

Noah is a single dad, and spending his first Christmas with his daughter.  Father and daughter are not well-acquainted.  So queue lots of awkwardness but in a very uplifting way.  And yes I hated Noah a bit, but when I heard his story, I jumped back on his side.

You can expect Christmas smooches when both meet and I loved their instant connection.  It didn’t feel like insta-love, as their life circumstances just lined them up perfectly, to met at this exact time.  It was cute and fun and I was goofy smiling at the romantic tension between them.

This is a short book but the characters were rounded and really well-developed.  Even without the suspense of wondering what would happen, I thought it was just a really cute, romantic, fun read.

Overall it’s sparkly and bright and gets the Christmas ‘good book’ tick.

Who should read A Yorkshire Christmas by Kate Hewitt

Highly recommended if you are in the market for an uplifting, sweet, cheesy Christmas read.  Fans of previous books by Kate Hewitt should enjoy.  Also if you enjoy authors such as Aven Ellis, Rachel Hollis or Debbie Macomber, then I’d also recommend this to you.

    I got this when it was free too, but haven’t read it yet! I did read another Christmas book by this author but it fell a bit flat for me, so I hope I’ll enjoy this one more. It sounds like a cute and fun Christmas read. And I am glad to hear the characters were well rounded. Great review and you make me curious to pick this one up too :).
