Tell Me About It
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, right? At least that’s what twenty-year-old Ginny Bailey’s grandmother always told her, and Ginny believed it until Grama died. She even put on a brave face the following two Christmases, carrying on Grama’s traditions and decorating her house and cafĂ© with Grama’s favorite decorations.

But Ginny can’t pretend any longer. When she finds out she’s going to be alone for the holidays this year, her Christmas spirit goes out the window, along with her luck. Everything that can go wrong does, and Ginny just wants to spend the holidays hiding under the covers...until Dean Riley comes back into her life. With their shared past, old feelings begin to resurface almost immediately, and Ginny thinks Dean might just be the Christmas miracle she’s been waiting for to help her remember why Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year.
My Thoughts
When Marie put out the call for reviewers for her new book, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, I did not hesitate in putting my name down. I have adored every book that I have read so far by Marie, she never fails to make me cry within minutes of starting her books, and The Most Wonderful Time of the Year was no exception. Even though I know that I will always end up crying I have to read her books. She always has a way of making an emotional connection with the characters and I find it so easy to not only feel that connection with them, but also fall head first into the pages..

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is the perfect Christmas book and Virginia is a girl after my own heart, she runs a coffee shop, wants to expand and have a bookshop, and she also loves snow. Her Grandma died three years prior, but this year is harder than the previous knowing she will be celebrating the holiday season alone, her parents have booked a last minute holiday and her friend is travelling to her boyfriends house. But all is not lost when the new neighbour Dean introduces himself, and pretty soon the sparks begin to fly.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year was a quick read but did not lack for anything. It has the perfect blend of romance, friendship and best of all Christmas with lots of snow. The pacing is realistic and doesn't feel rushed, and the strong friendships Virginia has with her friends and co-workers are evident in every page. The Most Wonderful Time of the Year deserves to be read curled up in a comfy chair with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate, and if my wishes came true, a perfectly timed snowfall.
Looking for a book that will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, this IS the book.
