Christmas, Snow, Family & Friendship.
Who is Sukie McClaren?
Cat lover? Sound of Music Fanatic? Fiercely Independent?
She is all of the above. And when she is sent to Salzburg for a business trip three weeks before Christmas, she thinks all her dreams have come true. As she packs her suitcase, the only things on her mind are Christmas markets, lots of snow and finally seeing the Doh-Ray-Me steps. Becoming the new best friend of the world’s hottest rock star doesn’t even get a look in.
Pete Wallace is a reclusive, reluctant, rock-star and the world’s Number One, best-selling, male solo artist. It’s been three years since his last tour and he’s now preparing to go back on the road again. A week in Salzburg, schmoozing with the music press, is one of his worst nightmares.
He can’t wait for it to be over.
When Pete and Sukie meet, it is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Eduardo di Santo however, whose kid sister suffered life-changing injuries at a Pete Wallace concert, is all set on getting revenge. When Pete’s new tour is announced, he begins to make his plans.
Will Pete and Sukie’s new friendship die before it has a chance to flourish?
Can I keep you?
I certainly will keep this book in my mind for a very long time and in my heart probably forever. What helped this book to take my heart would have to be the main character Sukie, independent, strong woman with amazing sense of humour and no filter to her mouth. For me this is the character that would win anyone over if it’s in the book or in the real life. Her witty responses and jokes made me giggle on many ocasions, I could only imagine I would just stand there and try, poorly try to give some good comeback. But not only that, she was also good hearted, understanding and with clever head on her shoulders.
Opening this book, I thought I knew what I’m in for, romantic comedy set in winter/Christmas time. Your typical girl meets the rock star type of book, but it only took few chapters to realize there is also more to that. There is a dark story lurking in the back and it makes you just wait and worry in back of your mind.
The biggest part of the book is set in Salzburg, beautiful city with amazing mountains covered in snow surrounding it. Just closing my eyes I could see it all and so vividly, author managed to show you everything you needed to see through her writing style and I bet it would make even summer lover fall in love with winter snowy setting of Austria. It certainly worked for me. Sound of the music movie played a big part in this book too, as Sukie being ‘little bit’ obsessed with it has always dreamed to visit Salzburg. She is so excited and so unbelievably happy that it made me to finally watch it and now I understand why. It’s absolutely beautiful, just like this book.
Without revealing any more I think you should go and check it out, read it and make your own mind up but be prepared to fall in love, laugh out loud and possibly shed few tears too. Just what you need from a great book I guess.
Lovely to meet you, I’m Kiltie Jackson.
I grew up in Scotland, Glasgow to be precise. A very unique city with a very unique way of looking at life. When I was old enough to do so, I took myself off to London and then, after several years of obtaining interesting experiences (which are finding their way into my writing), I moved up to the Midlands.
I currently live in Staffordshire with five cats who kindly allow my husband and I to share their house. We’re allowed to stay as long as we keep paying the mortgage! Our little home is known as Moggy Towers – plenty of moggies but no towers!
I like reading, watching movies, and visiting historical places. I really dislike going to the gym!
I am hoping that one day I can give up the day job and write my stories for a living.
