Christmas Kisses on Hollywell Hill by Jackie Ladbury

Christmas Kisses On Hollywell Hill

Christmas is coming and actress Kirsty Castille seems doomed to play the front part of Nag, the Christmas pantomime horse, when a surprise audition lands her the lead role as Maria in the Sound of Music.

Even better she bonds with a handsome chef over a piece of squid at her local supermarket, although sadly romance is the last thing on Jake Levy's mind.

He has a Christmas deadline, an ex-wife to mourn and lots of emotional baggage to drag around. He certainly doesn’t have time for romance and even if he did he wouldn’t fall for someone like Kirsty who craves the limelight: been there, done that.

A misunderstanding leads Jake to offer Kirsty a job in his new restaurant and she takes it purely to convince him that she’s the girl of his dreams.

Her charm offensive begins to work but while he’s cooking up a storm she’s secretly sparkling under the spotlight – until her cover is busted.

The fallout is catastrophic, but as they say in Luvvie Land, the show must go on, even if Kirsty is terrified that she's taken her last curtain call and ruined her chance for love.

Read on and immerse yourself in this delightful winter romance as the snow starts to fall and Christmas day becomes a magical reality.

Kirsty Castille is the epitome of struggling actors. If it wasn't for her flatmate and best friend, and her trusty bicycle, life would be intolerable and Kirsty would have to move back in with her parents.
Even with all her troubles, she still attracts the wrong type of men, mainly her also-actor boyfriend, Matt who spends what little money he has on booze and drugs while sacking up with anyone who promises to advance his career.
Finally fed up with him, Kirsty decides to try online dating and speed dating. SOMEthing or SOMEONE better must be out there for her. Enter Jake.
She is drawn to him immediately but their meetings are always confusing. Are they dating or is it an endless job interview? Does he "get" her or is he just trying to figure her out. Kirsty is unlike anyone Jake has ever met, known or experienced. He comes with baggage himself. At the moment he actually has a pregnant wife.

At the end of her rope (and wits) Kirsty and her bestie call upon a spell book to ease her struggles.
With laughter and absurd consequences, this is a fun read and a wild ride.

Jackie Ladbury writes heart-warming contemporary and historical women's fiction that is always guaranteed a happy ever after. From spending many years as an air-stewardess and seeing that it really is love that makes the world go around, she determined to put the same sparkle and emotion into her stories. Her life is no longer as exotic (or chaotic) as it was in those heady days of flying as she now lives a quiet life in Hertfordshire with her family and two cats, spending her days making up stories and finding excuses not to go to the gym.
