Description:

Holly has been planning Christmas in the Caribbean with her boyfriend Jeremy for the last few months and welcomes the chance to do something different for the festive season. But when Holly catches Jeremy in bed with another woman her hopes are shattered.

Faced with no other option, it appears Holly is going to have to spend Christmas with her eccentric parents. Something she was keen to avoid. 

After a night out, drowning her sorrows with her friend, she has a chance encounter with a handsome stranger, Fin, who provides her with an opportunity to have a Christmas staycation away from her parents. 

But when it turns out that there is more to Fin than meets the eye, and the attraction between him and Holly grows, it looks like she is on the cusp of happiness again.

Will Holly get the Christmas she craved and the man of her dreams?

Holly’s Christmas Countdown is a feel-good romantic comedy, perfect to curl up with on those cold winter nights.

My Thoughts:

I love Suzie Tullett’s books, there’s something so comforting and enjoyable about them, like chatting with a friend and sharing a great story full of laughter.

Christmas is a time to look forward to, that is unless you’re Holly. Her love life has taken a nosedive, she’s keen to avoid her eccentric parents and have a quiet Christmas. Her quiet plans are thrown somewhat when she agrees to something on a night out … alcohol induced amnesia leads to an unexpected visitor that changes everything.

Holly is a fantastic character, she’s bright and bubbly. Readers cannot help but love her, her happiness is infectious, and you almost wish that she were one of your friends.
And then we come to Fin … oh what do I say about Fin?! I wonder how many readers will fall for his charm? I know I certainly did!

If the brilliant characters aren’t enough to keep readers entertained, the plot certainly will. I laughed so much at Holly being shoved into the cupboard, the descriptions of a certain house festooned with Christmas decorations, and the images that Tullett conjured with her words. Especially the wonky sounding Christmas tree! I don’t think I’ve chuckled so much reading a book in ages. But be warned though, some of the food mentioned in the book will have you feeling a little peckish.


Make no mistake, this is the perfect read for the Christmas period, so grab a hot chocolate (or other cozy beverage), get comfy in your favourite reading position and enjoy!

Now, who do we ask about getting this made onto Netflix as a Christmas special?! It would be the perfect wee Christmas film, and I’d love to see who they’d cast as Fin!
