Review: One Christmas Kiss in Notting Hill by Mandy Baggot

One Christmas Kiss in Notting Hill
Imagine the perfect Christmas Kiss…

His strong arms around her waist, her hands on his face, the snow slowly starts to fall…

It’s enough to make Isla Winters cringe! While her sister can’t get enough of this – increasingly common – sight on the streets of London, Isla’s too busy trying to stop Hannah’s wheelchair from slipping on the ice, and making sure she’s not too late to her dream job at Breekers International.

But everything changes with the arrival of Chase Bryan, fresh from the New York office. He’s eager to learn everything about Isla’s beloved Notting Hill, but as the nights get colder, will cosying up to him come at a price?

Curl up by the fire with the ultimate seasonal romance, from the bestselling author Mandy Baggot!

Shona's review 4 of 5 stars

It's no secret that I am a fan of Baggots work, whether it's set on a hot sunny Greek island, or a wintery Christmas in the city I know I'm going to enjoy it. And this book did not disappoint.

This book features Isla, her wheelchair bound sister, Chase Bryan and Notting Hill. How can you talk about this book without discussing the setting. Baggot has done an amazing job of describing the surroundings that make you feel like you are actually there, when in reality the closest I've been to Portobello Road is courtesy of Bedknobs and Broomsticks, but i certainly have a better feel for the sights and sounds and smells.

The chemistry between Isla and Chase is there right from, well not quite the beginning because their meet cute moment was over shadowed by Isla being protective of a child that wasn't hers... but from shortly after that moment. And its off the page H.O.T.

This is the perfect book to curl up with in the run up to Christmas.
