Maybe This Christmas?

Curl up with the perfect cosy, comforting Christmas romance.

When Beth Brown loses her job and her boyfriend in the space of twenty-four hours, she thinks life can’t get any worse. That’s until she finds herself in the depths of the English countryside working for chef, Rocco di Castri. Not only does she have to deal with his legendary moods, but she’s also expected to get his chaotic schedule and workload in check, all while she’s nursing a broken heart.

It’s not long before Rocco’s idyllic home starts to work its magic and soon she sees a softer side to her boss too. And as the festive season approaches, Beth dares to look forward to everything the perfect country Christmas has to offer – and perhaps some romance of her own. Until news of an unexpected proposal threatens to put pay to all Beth’s plans. Will Beth get her happily-ever-after? Maybe, this Christmas…

A festive gem from Jill Steeples, perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley, Heidi Swain and Julie Houston.

‘I knew I was in safe hands from the very first page. Jill has such a fluid, easy way with words that I was drawn straight into the story. Maybe This Christmas is packed full of festive fun and romance. I wouldn’t mind finding Rocco in my Christmas stocking!’ Sarah Bennett
