It is my pleasure to help kick off the blog tour for Sasha Wagstaff’s Christmas in Chamonix!
When life goes downhill… head to the snow-capped Alps for roaring fires, apres-ski and festive romance.
Lily Jackson loves Christmas. She also loves her childhood friend Jamie, but when her plan to kick-start their romance goes drastically wrong and her job gets her down, Lily decides it’s time to make changes. A job opens up in snowy Chamonix and egged on by her best friend Imogen, Lily decides to go for it.
As Lily settles in with the eccentric Devereux family at their gorgeous boutique ski hotel, she starts to confront her past. But when she meets handsome ski instructor Luc, who hates Christmas, Lily might have taken on more than she can handle.
Can Lily make a new life – with or without skis? And can she get Luc to see how truly romantic Christmas can be?
A heart-warming, feel-good romantic comedy, perfect for fans of Holly Martin, Carole Matthews and Tilly Tennant.
Lily Jackson is in love. She has spent a long time dreaming about her best friend Jamie, and after finally plucking up the courage (assisted by some serious alcohol!) she confesses all to him. When things do not to plan (in fact they couldn’t really have gone much worse!), Lily finds herself accepting a job offer in Chamonix as a sports masseuse at a small boutique ski hotel. As a non-skier she is rather dubious about the local sporting activity, but throws herself into her new life, helpfully aided by her best friend Imogen. Her rather handsome ski instructor Luc may cause her a few issues though…
This is the perfect Christmas novel. Despite living in a England, in a place where we NEVER get snow at Christmas, it still seems as though snow is essential to making the season feel more Christmassy! This is probably why I love Christmas novels so much – they give me something that I just don’t get in real life! Christmas in Chamonix gives us plenty of snow, love and French food! What a perfect combination! Lily is a great character, who when faced with what can only be described as severe embarrassment, finds herself pushing forward into the unknown! She takes the opportunity to make significant changes in her life which introduces her to new people and she opens herself up to new experiences. She does something that I think we all either wish we had done, or hope we would do if the opportunity arose. The love story within the novel is an added bonus if i’m honest – what I enjoyed most was watching Lily learn more about herself and those around her.
This is a great Christmas novel, and as the Christmas trees start to go up around us and the wine starts to flow more easily in this festive season, this is the perfect novel for your down time. Grab yourself a copy and let me know what you think!

Thank you to Sasha Wagstaff and Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to be a part of this blog tour, and for providing me with a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
Sasha Wagstaff learned foreign languages, and imagined she might eventually get a glamorous job speaking French. After climbing her way up the banking ladder, Sasha started idly mapping out the beginnings of a novel on an old laptop. When she realised her characters were more real to her than dividends and corporate actions ever could be, she left her job to become a writer. She also writes under the pseudonym of Ella Harper.
