A Little Christmas Panto by Angela Britnell

Posted November 5, 2022 by Marsha in 2022 New Release Challenge, ARC, ChocLit/Ruby Fiction, Christmas Romance, Contemporary Romance / 1 Comment

 

Can a little Cornish village panto convince a troubled Hollywood heartthrob to act again?

Oh no it won’t! At least that’s what Zach Broussard initially thinks when the eccentric Anna Teague tries to railroad him into helping out with her community pantomime production in the run-up to Christmas.

Zach has his reasons for leaving Hollywood behind, and his retreat to the remote village of Polcarne in Cornwall signals the start of a new acting-free life for him.

But when Zach meets Anna’s daughter, Rosey – an ex-concert pianist who has swapped Mozart for panto tunes – he starts to wonder whether he could change his mind, and not just about acting.

If nothing else, will the residents of Polcarne ensure Zach has a Christmas he never forgets?

Count down to Christmas with mistletoe, mayhem, meddling friends, and mystery men …

There’s a saying about all work and no play – but there’s never a dull moment for Caroline working at Holly Walk Mall, especially at Christmas.

When she’s not dealing with orders from Ian, ‘the manager who can’t manage’ as her friend Rachel puts it, she’s overseeing the usual late-night shopping sessions, Santa’s grotto construction, and, most importantly, the sampling of many delicious festive treats at the Italian café her friends Nina and Marco own.

But when a new jewelry shop moves in and brings the ‘mysterious guy with the cute bottom’ to Holly Walk, Caro isn’t yet aware of just how much mayhem she’s in for in the countdown to Christmas.

With strategically placed mistletoe, revealing cowboy outfits, and even a bit of sleuthing, could this festive season turn out to be the liveliest yet for both Caro and her beloved Mall?
