Calling Mrs Christmas By Carole Matthews

[amazon_link id=”0751545589″ target=”_blank” ]Calling Mrs Christmas[/amazon_link]’Calling Mrs Christmas’ is the latest Christmas book by ‘Sunday Times’ bestselling author, Carole Matthews.

Cassie Smith has been out of work for a while but she has an idea. Drawing on her love of Christmas, she begins charging for small things: wrapping presents; writing cards; tree-decorating. She’s soon in huge demand and Cassie’s business ‘Calling Mrs Christmas’ is born.

Carter Randall wants to make Christmas special for his children, so he enlists Cassie’s help and his lavish requests start taking up all her time. Thank goodness she can rely on her loving partner, Jim to handle the rest of her clients. When millionaire Carter asks Cassie to join his family on a trip to Lapland, she knows she shouldn’t go but suddenly Cassie herself facing a heart-breaking choice that could change her entire life.

I loved ‘Calling Mrs Christmas’ I thought it was the perfect festive story, packed with loveable characters and filled with the season of goodwill, it was hard to come away from this book without being filled with warmth.

Cassie, the lead character of the story, was a wonderfully warm character who initially set up ‘Calling Mrs Christmas’ to help her out with her unemployment rut, but soon discovered a love for the season and enjoyed making others happy.

Throughout her time with her new busy business, Cassie meets an array of characters, in the form of her customers, from the sweet and lonely Mrs Ledbury, to sexy businessman Carter Randall and his two adorable children Eve and Max. Whilst working alongside Carter, Cassie gets a taste of the finer things in life and does wonder if the grass is indeed greener on the other side.

Even though the book is primarily seen through the eyes of Cassie, there are chapters where life is seen from Jim’s perspective. Jim works as an warden in a young defender’s institute, a gentle and kind man, he forms a special relationship with two teenage boys, Kieran and Andrew. Jim looks out for the young boys, providing not only a father figure but a shoulder when things get particularly tough for the two sensitive souls whilst supporting Cassie with her demanding job. I thought Jim was gentleman of a character and almost envied Cassie’s fortunate at finding him.

A warmhearted and wittily written story from the very start, ‘Calling Mrs Christmas’ tells the importance of family, helping those less well off at this special time of the year and is most definitely Carole Matthews at her very finest.
