Happy Christmas Eve by Jackie Ladbury

Happy Christmas Eve
A heart-warming Christmas story to put you in the mood for the festive season.

All I want for Christmas is you … or you?

Eve Halligan is back in her hometown for Christmas after a whirlwind few years touring with her band, the Molotovs. A lot has changed since she left, but two things have stayed the same. One: Eve is head-over-heels in love with Lucien Malikov, the Molotovs’ bad boy lead singer. Two: Lucien is completely indifferent to her.
Still, Eve dreams that this could be the Christmas where she convinces Lucien that they’re made for each other. But when childhood friend and local caterer Theo Wright comes back into her life bringing with him festive cupcake and sausage roll conundrums, Eve begins to question whether her Christmas dreams have been wasted on the wrong man …

A light hearted romance set during the winter holidays.
Eve was literally the girl next door, or to be more precise, at the end of the driveway.
She grew up with Lucien and even taught him how to play his first guitar. Together they wrote love songs, with Eve dreaming of the day they would perform them on stage as they happily gazed into each others' eyes.
Someone else who grew up with them and shared a dream with Eve was Theo. His shared dream was totally different. He and Eve made plans to open a bakery together after graduation. They were all set to begin when Lucien convinced Eve to come away with him and share the spotlight. Which do you think a young girl would choose?
A couple of years later Eve is beginning to see the true light. She is the talent behind Lucien's success and he isn't interested in sharing anything unless it furthers his career. As Eve makes plans to break his spell over her and sees new possibilities with a now successful Theo, others play roles to influence her choices and decisions.  Will Eve be strong enough to see clearly and make smart choices, finally?
Sweet, with frustrating moments, and a few characters you will love to hate, this is a bright spot to read when in a holiday mood.

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.
