"A charming holiday romance!"

Fresh Fiction Review

Christmas at the Chalet

Romance Contemporary | Holiday | Women's Fiction

CHRISTMAS AT THE CHALET by Anita Hughes is a contemporary romance novel that takes place during the holiday season. The breathtaking snowy location of St. Moritz makes a romantic backdrop for a steamy love story full of drama and kisses hot enough to melt the snow! Hughes has created a cast of characters that are relatable and dreamy. A setting that will have you feeling the cool snow: close your eyes and picture the gorgeous people or breathtaking scenery. The snowflakes, the festive holiday lights, yards and yards of tulle, will make readers most certainly fall in love with the idea that fairy tales do come true. That is why we love to read a holiday romance.

CHRISTMAS AT THE CHALET transported me to a magical world full of romance and intrigue. A world of beautiful wedding dresses and charming people who live an upper- class lifestyle. The romance does not stop at one love story; there are several love stories meshed together within the pages of the remarkable romance. A lovely story of following your heart and not your head, trusting yourself with both your career and your love life.

The characters are well-developed and the tension they share take the reader of a steamy story of love and a few surprises along the way. While the storyline is a little predictable and you know that they will end up together in the end, CHRISTMAS AT THE CHALET is an amazing romantic escape with vivid flashbacks, and it doesn't even need to be Christmas time to enjoy it.

A delicious love story about a bridal designer showing her new collection in the Alps during the magical week of Christmas where hijinx of the heart ensue.

It's the day after Christmas, and Felicity Grant is at a gorgeous ski chalet in St. Moritz for the biggest fashion show of her career. Felicity is a rising star on the bridal design scene, and this is her best collection yet. But when her boyfriend gives her a spa day instead of a diamond ring for Christmas, she has to face the possibility that she may never walk down the aisle in one of her own stunning designs.

And then there's Nell, the top model headlining Felicity's show. Nell is planning her dream wedding to her wonderful fiance with one catch: her divorced parents can't stand each other and threaten to no-show if the other is there.

Add to that Felicity's race against the clock to create a special gown for a prestigious bridal salon, and what both girls need is a Christmas miracle. What better place to find one than in the Swiss Alps with its dark forests and sparkling vistas?

But for Felicity it's hard to recognize a miracle even when it's right in front of her, and for Nell one miracle might not be enough to fix the past. Can dreams really come true or is that the stuff of Swiss fairytales?

Anita Hughes's Christmas at the Chalet is full of romance, gorgeous gowns, and the stunning scenery of the Swiss Alps. It's about love and forgiveness, and creating one's own miracles during the most festive time of year.
