Countdown to Christmas by Jo Thomas

Countdown to Christmas by Jo Thomas

Chloe can’t wait for Christmas . . . to be over! Her son Ruben is staying with his dad and Chloe is planning to ignore the holidays altogether. Her only festive touch is her son’s advent calendar, to help count down the days till he’s home again.

But a surprise call changes everything. Chloe might be the unexpected owner of some land in Canada! Surely, it’s a scam. Or could it be just the escape she needs right now? Ruben’s latest note in the advent calendar tells her to ‘say yes!’

In a flash, Chloe’s new countdown to Christmas involves a log cabin in the middle of a snowy forest, a community that’s worried for its future, a gruff lumberjack who gives her butterflies and a lot of pancakes with maple syrup . . .

Why We Loved It

As a reader when a Jo Thomas Christmas book arrives you know you are in for an absolute treat.

Jo is an author who defines ‘feel good escapism’, her writing flows effortlessly, she is a natural storyteller, and each time she transports the reader to a different location which is so well-researched it always feels authentic. 

Countdown to Christmas is a magical, atmospheric, utterly delightful, uplifting, heartwarming, beautiful book that should be in everyone’s Christmas stocking and we absolutely loved it! Highly Recommended!
