The Perfect Christmas by Annabelle Anders – book review

Disclosure.  This post is a review of an e-book I was sent for free.  All opinions are my own.

Less than a week before Christmas last year, I received a free e-copy of the book The Perfect Christmas by Annabelle Anders to review. I decided to save it up to read until now, ready to share what I thought of it with you, in plenty of time for this year’s festive season. You may find out more about the author on her website.

The Perfect Christmas by Annabelle Anders

Here is the book blurb.

Miss Eliza Cline, a vicar’s sister, has accepted her life as a quiet industrious spinster. Lord Crestwood, the dashing widowed baron, is the rogue from her past. A chance meeting at a Christmas House party presents a second chance for both of them. But Eliza must decide: has the Baron’s unforgivable sin already doomed their love forever? This is a story about forgiveness. Over the course of a lifetime, a person is faced with millions of choices, some more difficult than others. And sometimes, we make the wrong ones.In a world filled with hard consequences, we need grace.

The Perfect Christmas is book 3 in The Not So Saintly Sisters series, but works fine as a stand-alone read too.

I had come across Eliza previously as a minor character  in book 2 of the series, The Perfect Spinster and in this story she is attending a Christmas House party hosted by her dear friend Olivia, the main female character from book 2.

The prologue is set 12 years earlier when Eliza Cline and Henry Fairchild first met. He was a loveable rogue who ruined her. Now taking shelter from the snow at an inn, Eliza bumps into Henry again, along with his teenage children Charlotte and Bartholomew. Their destination is the same as hers, Olivia’s Christmas House party. Eliza is horrified to only discover now that Henry was married when they first met.

Old wounds are reopened and buried feelings reappear as we see both sides of the story. Lies are exposed. Does Eliza now hate Henry? Is it possible to forgive?

The Perfect Christmas is available on Amazon, in paperback or Kindle format. An emotional Christmas tale.

    I don’t usually like romantic fiction, but I must say the historical context of this, with the sin and him being married to do make it sound more interesting.
    Can you believe I’ve never read a Christmas book though?!

      Yes it is ideal to read right now. I only saved it last year because I received it so close to Christmas and knew I wouldn’t have the review ready until after the big day even if I dropped everything else to give it priority
