Cover Reveal – The Christmas Calendar Girls by Samantha Tonge


I love cover reveals.


I love Christmas.


Now I get to do both and reveal the cover for a wonderful new romantic comedy Christmas book by Samantha Tonge called The Christmas Calendar Girls.


Let’s just stop the anticipation and get to this already……




This is just gorgeous.  It’s a cover I would be immediately attracted to in the store and certainly pick up, and knowing me, it would be in my basket.  It is so Christmas!  I’m ready to get the decorations out, put on the carols, and warm up the mulled wine.
Sure, cue the rolling eyes, but I am one of those people who could live in Christmastown, USA with decorations everywhere, cozy scarves, and holiday cheer everywhere you look.  And yes, I am an avid supporter of the Hallmark Channel.  Don’t knock it until you try it!!
The best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear!


So let me tell you about the book.

The Christmas Calendar Girls
This Christmas fall in love with the town of Chesterwood…
Christmas is meant to be a time of giving, so with Chesterwood food bank under risk of closure Fern knows just what to do to save it. She’s going to get the town to create a living advent calendar.
Fern, and her best friends, call for help from the local community to bring this calendar to life. When Kit, the new man in town, offers his assistance Fern’s heart can’t help but skip a beat (or two).
As they grow ever closer, Fern must admit that Kit’s breaking down the barriers she built after the death of her husband. But his past is holding him back and Fern doesn’t know how to reach him. No matter how hard she tries.
In this town, Kit’s not the only one with secrets. Domestic goddess Cara is behaving oddly, burning meals in the oven and clothes whilst ironing, and Davina’s perfect children are causing trouble at school leaving her son, Jasper, desperately unhappy.
Can the Christmas Calendar Girls find a way to bring the community together in time to save the food bank, while still supporting their families and each other? Can Fern find love again with Kit?
This is a story about kindness and letting go of the past. It’s about looking out for your neighbours and about making every day feel like Christmas.
