Christmas for One by Amanda Prowse


As a child, Meg always dreamed of the perfect Christmas…

This year, she can make it come true for her own little boy. There will be turkey and all the trimmings, a glittering tree, and a stocking hung up by a roaring fire. Who cares if there’s no devoted husband in the picture? She and Lucas will be just fine on their own.

But then a chance meeting with a stranger in New York unravels everything she’s planned. Will Meg finally get everything she wished for? Or will she be alone this Christmas after all?

My Thoughts:

With Christmas looming, Meg is dreaming of the family Christmas she longed for as a child.
But then a business trip to New York brings a handsome gentleman into her life, will Meg be getting love for Christmas?

Christmas for One reunites us with Meg and her son Lucas from A Little Love and I would like to say that although I read this as a follow on, it could easily be read as a standalone.

Meg is a fantastic character, she herself experienced a troubled upbringing which is explored as she reminisces within the story.
But now her goal is to make sure that son Lucas will have the upbringing that Meg longed for and with the help of the Plums, she’s already on the right path.

It was magical being back at Plums and finding Milly playing with Lucas, whilst the wonderful pastries were being created in the store below them.

I have always rooted for Meg and throughout both books I’ve wanted her to find happiness, so it was with great excitement that I discovered Edd and oh what a delicious discovery he was.

With the romantic setting of New York at Christmas, we find ourselves pulled into a romance, but with a few snowballs thrown along the way, because Amanda Prowse has delved into some tough issues and as with all her books she has dealt with them in a way that leaves you in awe.

Prowse has quickly became a favourite author of mine, the emotions that imbed themselves within the pages always have me longing for her characters happiness.

This Christmas allow Amanda Prowse to warm your heart with the beautiful story that is Christmas for One.
