No One Cancels Christmas
It’s the most magical time of the year, and for travel agent Sarah it’s also the busiest! But this year one man threatens to ruin Christmas for Sarah’s customers – Mr Grinch, Will Armstrong.
The Shooting Star Mountain resort is a magical place, and Sarah has fond memories of Christmas here as a little girl – visits to Father Christmas, husky rides in the snow and hot chocolate by a roaring fire. But as the resorts new owner, Will refuses to play snowball or to deck the halls with anything remotely resembling tinsel!
With customers complaining their Christmas is ruined, Sarah decides it’s up to her to convince Scroogey Will just how magical Christmas can be….
But getting Will into the Christmas spirit is hopeless – he is Bah Humbug personified! But as Sarah gets to know him better, she realises that underneath all the gloom is a man struggling with a pain of his own.
With the big day approaching, Sarah realises that the magic and sparkle can wait. This year, she’s going to spend Christmas day with someone special her very own Mr Scrooge…

No One Cancels Christmas is a good read, it has some good, even great moments with enough of drama and humour. Our lead heroine is reluctantly agreed to put the ghost of past to rest and begin the future on a good note.
What I liked,
– The lead characters were very interesting, strong, stubborn and had that brooding quality that makes a romance delish.
– The fleeting moments that captured the beauty of the vast Rocky Canadian Mountains.
Even with all the good parts there was something missing in the story for me. Perhaps it was the pace in the beginning or did not have the urgency to situations as much as did to the characters emotions. If that makes sense.
However, I do feel fans of the author will like and love this Christmasy read from her. So if you are a Zara Stoneley fan, hope you grab a copy and settle down for the weekend with her latest.
Born in a small village in Staffordshire, I wanted to be a female James Herriot, a spy, or an author when I grew up. After many years, and many different jobs, my dream of writing a bestseller came true. I write about friendship, dreams, love, and happy ever afters, and hope that my tales make you cry a little, laugh a lot, and occasionally say ‘ahhh’. I now live in a Cheshire village with my family, a lively cockapoo called Harry, and a very bossy (and slightly evil) cat called Saffron.
