Strictly Christmas Spirit Helen Buckley 4*#Review @HelenCBuckley @ChocLituk #spotlight #Festive @rararesources #BlogTour #BookReview #MondayBlogs #StrictlyChristmasSpirit


From disco balls to Christmas baubles …
Ex-dancer Emily Williams turned her back on the sparkle of popular dancing show Strictly Dancing with Celebs to help those in need. Now the only dancing she does is teaching lonely pensioners to waltz, and the closest she gets to disco balls is making baubles with the homeless people in her Christmas crafts class.
She’s certainly not star-struck when Hollywood heart-throb Blake Harris is sent to her at short notice for community service, and has no desire to babysit the arrogant actor with his bad boy antics and selfish ways. Christmas might be a time for miracles, but Blake seems to be a lost cause.
But Emily’s reasons for abandoning her dancing passion means she understands the Hollywood wild child more than she’d like to admit. Could their time together, coupled with a dash of Christmas spirit, lead to a miracle change of heart for them both?
Book 3 in Helen’s Spotlight series but they can all be read as standalone stories.

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

If you enjoy your festive reading with gentle romance and examples of the true meaning of this time of year, this heartwarming story is for you. The reader meets Emily in the spotlight, where things are not going to plan. Then Blake is introduced as he hits a low point in his life. The setting for the story isn’t glamorous, but it’s a place of hope.

The story has seasonal predictability but does explore contemporary issues in a meaningful way. The romance between Emily and Blake is inevitable, but there are many conflicts and misunderstandings.

The cast of characters add authenticity and the romance grows believably. It’s an easy and uplifting read that makes you think.

Ever since I was little I wanted to be a writer, to turn daydreams into books. I’m fascinated by fame, in love with Happy Ever Afters, and enthralled by slow-burn romances. I squeeze in time to write around looking after my two sons.
