My Review

This is a brilliant addition to the ‘Dreaming of…’ series by this highly talented author. Each book has a stupendous setting which the author brings vividly to life in his stories and this is no exception. In this case the story is set in the Austrian Alps, at an exclusive resort where journalist Zoe has been invited, along with several other friends who had shared the same house whilst studying, to spend an expenses paid holiday over the festive season by one of their friends, Billy, who has been highly successful. This is a much better option than the previous year when the man she’d been with for more than a decade broke up with her and left on Christmas Eve….or is it? The problems are that her ex is also going to be there…. and she’s been told to get an exclusive interview with Billy to help keep her job!

As old friends reconnect there are relationships to reevaluate, ski slopes to explore, secrets to uncover and love to be found as well as a delightful black Labrador to keep everyone amused! Get ready for another superb read with plenty of well developed characters to get to know, an intriguing story line to keep you guessing and the fantastic, opulent setting and emotively portrayed relationships to help keep you warm with festive feelings whatever the time of year! Make sure you also keep an eye out for the mischievous Labrador who has an important role to play in the romance!

I’ve loved every book I’ve read by this talented author and this is another winner as far as I am concerned. His stories are always ones I eagerly anticipate reading and thoroughly enjoy escaping into – and this one is definitely another of those. I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending this delightful festive read and eagerly look forward to reading and re-reading more by this author in future!


It’s the dream Christmas: snow, mountains… and, er, an ex-boyfriend. But can Zoe still find love in the Alps?

Dumped on Christmas Eve by her long-term boyfriend, it’s been a rough year for Zoe Lumsley. But then she gets an invitation she can’t refuse: an all expenses paid skiing holiday with old university friends.

The bad news: her ex, Grant, will be there with his new girlfriend. But so will her former flatmate Billy, the organiser, and in the meantime he’s done rather well for himself. As Christmas in the Alps approaches, it’ll be great to see the old gang. Some more than others…

Perfect for readers of Tilly Tenant, Holly Martin and Philippa Ashley, this is the perfect magical Christmas getaway from the bestselling T.A. Williams
