GUEST POST: Number #1 Christmas Book & Film by Emma Louise

Number #1 Christmas Book & Film by Emma Louise

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope you’re all getting deep into the festive spirit. Our Christmas tree was decorated this week and the presents have just gone under, so it’s made our little home a lot more festive.

Christmas is a great time of year to spend reading books and watching films whilst curled up on the sofa with a nice big cup of hot chocolate.

Zoe kindly asked me to guest post for her blog and I couldn’t say no.

Do come and say hello on Twitter @EmmaLouAuthor and if you’d ever like to guest post on my own blog, – just give me a shout.

Lots of love,

Emma Louise xx

When Alex Munro learns that the love of her life is getting married to another girl, all she wants is to be alone – and as far away from Edinburgh as possible. Moving to a Cornish cottage, which comes complete with the world’s scruffiest dog, Alex finds that her new neighbours are determined to involve her in their madcap Christmas festivities. Then she meets her sexy neighbour Ruan – and somehow Alex doesn’t want to be alone this Christmas after all. But having lost one fiancé, Ruan has no intention of letting anyone get close to him again…

Just For Christmas is without a doubt, my number one Christmas read. Scarlett very kindly sent me a signed Paperback copy in the post which I won in one of her wonderful competitions and it was absolutely incredible. Alex and Ruan are two very loveable characters and the Cornish town is far from quiet. This is a Christmas novel you’ll regret not reading! I’ll be picking it up once again in 2014 when the festive period visits us once more.


The Santa Clause directed by John Pasquin [1994]The_Santa_Clause


When a man inadvertently kills Santa on Christmas Eve, he finds himself magically recruited to take his place.

The Santa Clause film is by far the best Christmas film in the entire world! Tim Allen who plays Scott Calvin/Santa is one of my favourite actors of all time. He’s witty, charming and of course, he’s Buzz Lightyear! Without fail, I watch this film on Christmas Eve before heading to bed and it really does get me into the festive mood. I wish I could get away with watching it all year round…
