A Christmas Gift by Sue Moorcroft #Review #Romance #Contemporary #Christmas

Title: A Christmas Gift by Sue Moorcroft

Author: Sue Moorcroft

Publisher: Avon Books UK

Pages: 400

Published: October 4th, 2018

Rating: 5/5

This is a superb seasonal read with great characters, plenty of background as well as turmoil in a fantastic second chance romance – no wonder it is tagged as “The #1 Christmas bestseller returns with the most feel good romance of 2018”!

Starting with debt collectors knocking, the story has so many dramatic moments and even has a Christmas production to be performed! Much of it is based at Acting Instruments, the performing Arts college in Middledip and revolves around one the the staff there, Georgine France and someone who unexpectedly joins the staff.

It is so emotive as they discover more from the past and move on to future possibilities. What happened to them both in the past and how their lives have changed is such a contrast! One goes from rags to riches whilst the other does the complete opposite. That, together with the impact of someone being manipulative and trying to ruin other relationships, are all dealt with in a manner that had me turning the pages, reluctant to put the story down – I felt invested in the characters and events and really wanted to know what happened.

It is another delightful book by this highly talented author, a story with well developed characters who have plenty of things in their past and present to make the future difficult to foretell.  Adding to the intrigue, secrets are being kept waiting to be revealed, other discoveries are made and even the paparazzi get involved! Get ready for the pandemonium of a Christmas production, students, course work and the pressure of other people’s expectations and assumptions before you reach the heartwarming end to the fantastic festive read.

I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.


‘I love all of Sue Moorcroft’s books!’

One Christmas can change everything…

Georgine loves Christmas. The festive season always brings the little village of Middledip to life. But since her ex-boyfriend walked out, leaving her with crippling debts, Georgine’s struggled to make ends meet.

To keep her mind off her worries, she throws herself into organising the Christmas show at the local school. And when handsome Joe Blackthorn becomes her assistant, Georgine’s grateful for the help. But there’s something about Joe she can’t quite put her finger on. Could there be more to him than meets the eye?

Georgine’s past is going to catch up with her in ways she never expected. But can the help of friends new and old make this a Christmas to remember after all?

Curl up with the gorgeous new book from the Sunday Times bestseller, perfect for fans of Carole Matthews and Trisha Ashley.
