We are delighted to offer 3 copies of On The First Day of Christmas by Faith Hogan, set in IRELAND

Some of you might want to start getting in the mood for Christmas and there is no better way than reading a novel – an uplifting story about love, family and how a split second decision can change your life….

3 copies of On The First Day Of Christmas

This Christmas, everything will change…

When Liv Latimer says goodbye to her fellow nurses and finishes work for the holidays, she’s looking forward to a Christmas to remember with her boyfriend Eddie.

But as she leaves the hospital, tragedy strikes and Liv is faced with a choice. Will she ignore her instincts and go home as planned? Or will she stay, and potentially change the course of her life as she knows it?

Whatever choice she makes, Liv is about to discover that fate finds a way…

From the bestselling Irish author of The Ladies’ Midnight Swimming Club, comes an emotional and uplifting festive story about love, family and how a split second decision can change your life.

  89. User: Yvonne @Fiction_Books

    Posted on: 24/10/2022 at 6:49 am

    This is going to sounds really ungrateful, but because I have so many hundreds of books already in my library (both physical and virtual), I just know that the gift giver would either purchase a title I already own (none of my circle of family and friends are particularly avid readers) or would go for something completely off the wall which I probably wouldn’t read. I would therefore be more made up if someone gave me a gift voucher for a book shop, so that I could go and browse for myself (not that potentially the choice would be any easier for me to make!) xx
