One Christmas Kiss in Notting Hill by Mandy Baggot
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?
Ms Baggot does such a good job of describing Notting Hill, I felt i was actually there. In fact, I've put it on my "to visit" list for the next time I'm in London. It sounds wonderful - almost like a village within the city.
But that's not the only thing that's good about this novel. There were lots of little surprises and the tension, both between Isla and Chase and that provided by the plot itself, built nicely throughout.
I loved Hannah! She was the star of the show for me, and I hope Ms Baggot carried on this charming young woman's story with a book all to herself. I'd love to know what happens between her and Raj.
