Brooke seems to have survived the horrible heartbreak after her boyfriend dumped her.  What she needs is a Christmas escape and there is no better place than Paris.  The snow is falling beautifully on the romantic city of love, but she is determined to not fall in love.  But when Brooke meets Armand with his amazing smile, she gets butterflies when he looks at her.  The more time they spend together at romantic dinners and kisses at the top of the Eiffel Tower, she can’t control her heart.  When Armand begins keeping things from Brooke, and lying to her, she can’t help but think that her second chance may just be another mistake.  However, the spirit of Christmas may be exactly what she needs.

Oh my goodness this story of heartbreak, and second chances was absolutely perfect.  I adored the detailed description of Paris in the winter Christmas season.  I could almost feel the snow falling on my face as I looked up at the Eiffel Tower.  The Christmas lights with romance in the air was perfect.  The hustle and bustle of the season was so heartwarming.  Each café was filled with love and laughter of the people enjoying their time together.  This quick read had an amazing flow to the story and my heart went out to Brooke as she tried to find her place in life.  The ending was perfect and I love that the author put the sport of Christmas joy right into my hands.  I read this story in one sitting and I highly recommend this charming and festive read.

Thank you Tilly Tennent for such a wonderful, cozy Christmas romance.  This lovely little story was so delightful and I thoroughly enjoyed your book. This is a definite must read.

As the snow flutters down on the Eiffel Tower and fairy lights sparkle on the pavement cafés of Paris, meet the girl determined not to fall in love in the most romantic city in the world…

Brooke arrives in Paris at Christmas, it feels like the perfect place to escape her heartbreak after being dumped by her long-term boyfriend. And while her head might be turned by the romance of couples strolling arm in arm along the riverbank, and the air scented with chocolat chaud, her heart remains firmly under lock and key – this trip is going to be about her.

But when a chance encounter leads Brooke to green-eyed 
Armand with his dark wavy hair and warm smile, she is annoyed to feel her heart skip a beat… And when he opens his heart to her in a candlelit restaurant and kisses her at the top of the Eiffel Tower, she throws caution to the wind. Armand isn’t her ex – and doesn’t she deserve a second chance at love?

But when Armand begins to blow hot and cold, she wonders if she has been taken for a fool. Why does he lie about where he has been? Who is the mysterious tall blonde French woman who always seems to be watching Brooke? And when Armand leaves Paris without warning as Christmas Eve approaches, will Brooke be able to find out what he is hiding? Brooke will need the courage to leave her own past behind if she is to find magic this Christmas…
