About the Book
A Christmas she’ll remember forever…
Poppy is looking forward to spending her first Christmas in France at her boyfriend, Leo’s, Château. And as the snow falls softly around the dramatic castle, Poppy can’t think of anything more magical.
There are new traditions to discover, a cosy Christmas market to explore and best of all, a promise of secret treasure hunt from gorgeous Leo. Only family pressure and uncertainty about her future in France can threaten to cast a shadow over the holiday.
When the treasure hunt takes an unexpected turn Poppy knows for sure this is one Christmas she’ll remember forever.
I was drawn to Christmas at the Chateau because of the gorgeous cover, it really did make me want to curl up in front of a fire with a glass of Baileys to read it!
Poppy is living in France and will be spending her first Christmas there with her boyfriend Leo and his family at their chateau. She’s looking forward to it but she can’t stop herself second guessing what other people think so she ties herself up in knots worrying about what might happen in the future.
This is a romance novella and I loved reading about Poppy and Leo and was hoping they would get a happy ever after with Leo. I loved that it’s also a story about friendship – the bond Poppy has with her room-mate Joanne was really lovely.
Having said all of that I have to admit that my favourite characters were Peanut and Pickwick – the gorgeous dogs that live with Poppy! I loved that Peanut is a self-taught dancer and has a YouTube channel, it just warmed my heart and made me smile!
I didn’t realise when I got this novella that it’s the second in a series but enough is explained that you don’t need to have read the first book. It works well as a standalone but I loved the characters enough that I want to know more about their back stories so I will be buying the first book in this series so I can catch up soon.
Christmas at the Chateau is the perfect novella to read in the busy lead up to Christmas as it’s short and can be read in an hour or so, it gives such great escapism and gets you totally in the mood for the festive season. It’s full of romance and Christmas, and dancing dogs… what more can you possibly want? I recommend this one.

A short read involving dogs, romance, and Christmas – indeed what does one need more in a book! Good review. 🙂
There’s just something about Christmas and romance, isn’t there, Hayley? It can be a lovely match if it’s done well. Glad you enjoyed this one.
