You’ve seen Mark Darcy in the reindeer jumper his mother gave him, now meet Marco Cavelli in this season’s Christmas knit!
For single mum Maggie, Christmas has always been a family occasion – her daughter Ellen filling the house with her bubbly warmth and mistletoe, her dad Paddy having one too many festive tipples, and the traditional family Christmas tree looking like a drunken elf vomited a rainbow all over it.
But this year, with both Ellen and Paddy away for the holidays, Maggie’s facing a truly blue Christmas – alone with nothing but a bottle of Baileys and an M&S turkey dinner.
Until walking the snowy streets of Oxford, Marco Cavelli quite literally crashes into her life – and, complete with broken leg, becomes her unexpected houseguest. All dreamy brown eyes and 6’5” of gorgeousness, the man is hotter and more delicious than a freshly baked mince pie.
Though Maggie always thought it’s a truth universally acknowledged that you never kiss a man in a Christmas jumper?
The next FABULOUS book from Debbie Johnson, author of best-selling Christmas number one, ‘Cold Feet at Christmas’ and the summer hit ‘Pippa’s Cornish Dream’.
For me no one can beat Colin Firth in a Christmas jumper in his part as Mark Darcy in Bridget Jone’s Diary but I have to say that Marco Cavelli certainly gives him a run for his money.
Marco’s character certainly brings visions of someone who is quite hot though he does seem to be a tad accident prone. After literally bumping into the lovely Maggie and breaking his leg, Maggie finds herself becoming a carer for him and of course the inevitable happens and they both fall for each other.
Never Kiss A Man In A Christmas Jumper is a relatively quick read as would say it was more of a novella than an actual novel.It is a tad predictable but is still very much an enjoyable and fun read. There are a couple of parts of the storyline that have more of a serious tone to it which pulls on your heart strings though.
Definitely a great read for this time of the year.
