The Winter We Met - Samantha Tonge || Blog Tour


When charming, mysterious Nik sits next to Jess on a plane home from a Christmas toy trade fair, she never could have imagined the impact he'd have on her life. As they touch down in London, Jess is hesitant to let Nik walk away, and before she knows it, she's invited him to visit.

As the two take in the delights of the toy store where she works, Jess gets an upsetting phone call. Willow Court, her grandmother's care home, is to close before Christmas. Jess is determined to find the perfect new home for her Gran – and throw the best Christmas party Willow Court has ever seen!

But time is running out with the closure looming and Jess becomes increasingly drawn to enigmatic Nik who joins forces with her and best friend Oliver to realise those plans.

Will a chance encounter on an aeroplane bring love to Jess's life or is this Christmas miracle too good to be true?

I was gifted my copy for the blog tour.
What a delightfully magically Christmas read this was, it was filled with the essence of Christmas, good friends and wonderful stories. I was shedding a tear on the last few pages. Jess meets Nik on a plane as they return from a toy fair and strike up an immediate bond of friendship, that journey blossoms into so much more as the Jess helps Nik to explore the place. However just as things are going wonderfully for the pair, Jess gets an upsetting call - her grans care home is closing down before Christmas but she knows she can find her the next best place, and throw the residents a party like they will ever forget and let them bid farewell in style. So joining forces Jess and Nik alongside Oliver - Jess' roommate they set on a mission.

This was lovely, it was festive, it was about friendship, the meaning of Christmas and so much more. Can a chance meeting find Jess the real love of her life? Will the residents of Willow Court find the happiness they deserve? 

I loved each and every character in this book, they all had their own unique personalities, and Nik really brought them out to shine. I really think this captured the festive spirit so well. I feel so warmed and happy after reading this delightful read. Really appreciate been able to review this one!
