• The Christmas Invitation

  • A brilliant new Christmas novel from Top Five Sunday Times bestselling author Trisha Ashley

    'Like a nice mug of mulled wine in book form!' Good Housekeeping

    Meg is definitely not in the Christmas mood. She’s never gone in for tinsel, baubles and mistletoe, and right now she’s still getting over an illness. Yet when she’s invited to spend the run-up to Christmas in the snowy countryside, rather than dreary London, she can’t refuse.

    Arriving at a warm and cosy family home in a small hilltop village, Meg soon begins to wonder what a proper Christmas might be like. But just as she’s beginning to settle in, she spots a familiar face. Lex.

    Despite the festive cheer, Meg suddenly wants nothing more than to get as far away from him, and their past secrets, as she can. But if she stays, could this be the year she finally discovers the magic of Christmas...?

    Fabulously funny, intelligent and heart-warming, Trisha Ashley’s brand-new novel is the feel-good Christmas novel of the year. It even contains recipes!

    Praise for Trisha Ashley:
    "One of the best writers around!" Katie Fforde
    "Full of down-to-earth humour" Sophie Kinsella
    "A warm-hearted and comforting read. Trisha at her best" Carole Matthews
