Kiltie Jackson wrote one of my favourite ever Christmas books back in 2017, A Rock ‘n’ Roll Lovestyle, so I was extremely excited to see that she had written another Christmas story!
And I was not disappointed with this beautiful and uplifting book, filled with adorable characters, funny and feisty characters and so much Christmas cheer in every chapter that it made me warm inside and so excited for the festivities to come!🎄
Book 📖 blurb 🎄❄️⛄️🎁🎅🏼
A Snowflake in December
When Christmas is the time of year you hate the most, what does it take to make you love it?
“I’ve come to the conclusion that Kiltie’s books are modern day fairy-tales. There’s love, suspense, villains, wishes & dreams fulfilled. I say modern day because you’re not going to get the white knight swooping in to rescue the fair helpless maiden but you will have that same swoon-worthy feeling…”
Polly Snowflake hasn’t celebrated Christmas since her father died on Christmas Day when she was fifteen years old and, twenty years later, she has avoiding the festive season down to a fine art. That is until she meets Maxwell Watkins, a fully-fledged lover of Christmas, who vows to thaw out her frozen Christmas spirit.
Taking the idea of an advent calendar, Maxwell sets a different ADVENT-ure each day from the 1st to the 24th December, covering all manner of wonderful Christmas delights. As they spend time together, Polly begins to wonder if Christmas is the only thing she’ll be opening her heart to. That is, until Maxwell’s glamourous super-model ex-girlfriend arrives back on the scene…
Will this be a Christmas for Polly to remember or yet another she’ll want to forget?
My ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️ review
A gorgeous Christmas story that completely uplifted my heart!
I instantly warmed to the lovely Polly, and felt for her after hearing her tragic back story. Fate threw her ( literally) into the lives of Monty and Maxwell, and it was wonderful to see her have the opportunity to fall back in love with the Christmas season once more.
I enjoyed the daily Christmas themed adventures, and was drawn into the blossoming friendship that gradually grew into romance.
As always in a Kiltie book there were lots of hilarious laugh out loud moments and some brilliant one liners. I do so love a feisty character or two!
This is the perfect Christmas read to get you in the festive frame of mind, but do be warned, it will have you craving hot chocolate and some delectable Christmas bakes as you read it!
So stock up on the mince pies, grab a snuggly blanket and make a delicious drink and let Kiltie whisk you away on an amazing ‘advent-ure’ that will make you smile and will fill your heart with the best time of the year happy feelings.
Another Christmas classic book to add to my ‘I must read this again at Christmas pile’ that I have reserved for the days leading up to the big day!

About the author
Kiltie Jackson spent her childhood years growing up in Scotland. Most of these early years were spent in and around Glasgow although for a short period of time, she wreaked havoc at a boarding school in the Highlands.
By the age of seventeen, she had her own flat which she shared with a couple of cats for a few years while working as a waitress in a cocktail bar (she’s sure there’s a song in there somewhere!) and serving customers in a fashionable clothing outlet before moving down to London to chalk up a plethora of experience which is now finding its way into her writing.
Once she’d wrung the last bit of fun out of the smoky capital, she moved up to the Midlands and now lives in Staffordshire with one grumpy husband and another six feisty felines.
Her little home is known as Moggy Towers even though, despite having plenty of moggies, there are no towers! The cats kindly allow her and Mr Mogs to share their home as long as the mortgage continues to be paid.
Since the age of three, Kiltie has been an avid reader although it was many years later before she decided to put pen to paper – or fingers to keyboard – to begin giving life to the stories in her head. Her debut novel was released in September 2017 and her fourth book was a US Amazon bestseller in Time Travel Romance.
Kiltie loves to write fiery and feisty female characters and puts the blame for this firmly on the doorsteps of Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables and George Kirrin from The Famous Five.
When asked what her best memories are, Kiltie will tell you:
1. Queuing up overnight outside the Glasgow Apollo to buy her Live-Aid ticket.
2. Being at Live-Aid.
3. Winning an MTV competition to meet Bon Jovi in Sweden.
(Although, if Mr Mogs is in earshot, the latter is changed to her wedding day.)
Her main motto in life used to be “Old enough to know better, young enough not to care!” but that has since been replaced with “Too many stories, can’t type fast enough!”
