    Cosy up with the new Christmas book from bestselling author Jo Thomas

    Residential-home caterer Connie has had one online-dating disaster too many. Hurt in the past and with her son to consider, now she's feeling hesitant. Then one of Connie's residents sets her up on a date at a beautiful German Christmas market - with the promise she'll take a mini-bus full of pensioners along with her...

    Amongst the twinkling lights and smell of warm gingerbread in the old market square, Connie heads off on her date with a checklist of potential partner must-haves. Baker Henrich ticks all the boxes, but when Connie meets Henrich's rival William, she starts to wonder if ticking boxes is the answer.

    Will Connie's wish for love this Christmas come true, and if so - with who?

    Readers are feeling enchanted by Finding Love at the Christmas Market:

    ***** 'This book was a hot chocolate on a cold day, warming and satisfying.'
    ***** 'I could smell the gingerbread and spices, a real hug of a book.'
    ***** 'A beautiful book about finding what matters most at Christmas . . . such a heart-warming story.'
